"…I do want to ask about the nun and the professional wrestler. That is quite the interesting pair. And I think the professional wrestling probably would set you up for a good career in politics these days. But for for me, it depended on the season. In the summer it was professional baseball player all the way in the winter professional basketball player. And I am convinced that if the NBA played games on my childhood driveway, then I would be All Star for sure.…"

"…Well, this one is a very inviting Spala, so everyone will have other own passion towards what they need to become in their childhood days. When when I was a kid, I wanted to become a civil engineer. My uncle was a civil engineer. He used to take me to the construction sites and I admire the work that is being done there. So at that time I wanted to be a civil engineer. So then later on I want to become a yoga teacher.…"

"…When I was a kid, I really wanted to be a doctor. But more than anything, I think I wanted to be an adult. I wanted to be a grown up. I thought grown ups were happy all the time. I mean, they had money. They could would buy all the ice cream and candy that they could ever eat. They also did not have a fixed bedtime so they could watch TV as long as they want. Well, guess what?…"

"…When I was a kid. To be honest, I never dreamed of how I'm going to be or my future will be. But my father used to say like you will be IAS or IPS, but I never thought of to become an IAS or IPS rather than I used to focus on my studies like to get good marks. Days were gone. After that I completed my higher education and I went to College. From there I started get more interest towards programming algorithms and data structure.…"

When I was a kid, I and Reed Richards was my favorite character. As far as I thought he was the smartest. He seemed like he could figure anything out. He was disciplined in awe disciplines of science. And I just thought that was cool. And I want it to be the same way.…"

@alasdair - thank you. Among my imaginary friends there were no job titles.

"…If I was ever asked the question, and I think it came up frequently given the psychoanalytic bent of a lot of my parents, friends and themselves what I wanted to be in the future, I know I had a clever answer for them, probably audience dependent, and I was very good at coming off as the smart little boy who had a direction, so no one had to worry about him. It's a dangerous question in a way to ask a kid.…"

So basically, I really did not even realize if I wish to be anything at that time. So being an obedient child tried my level best to be one. There you have it.…"

And then I slowly learned that it wasn't as glamorous as I thought thought it would be. And then as I gone to kind of my preteen years, my priorities shifted a little bit, and I wanted to be the drummer for Molly Crue. That was my big dream.…"

Being a softball player, it was just my dream. I saw those girls sitting on the sidelines, and I was just like I wanted to be that girl. But I'm not. And then I wanted to be an MRI technician.…"

And then as I got older, I started playing sports. I really wanted to be starting point car with Los Angeles Lakers. Needless to say, that hasn't panned out.…"
