Well, you managed 2 of the things you wanted to do.. many people never get as far as one ! smile.gif

I often get times where I think I'd like to go into the police force but then I think of some of the stuff they have to do.. the knocking on the door to tell a parent the worst news.. and I know I couldn't do that. I've got a lot of respect for anybody who works in any of the forces - fire crews, ambulance crews etc..


Oh man... That's really nasty .. I mean, honestly speaking, yes, in the force you have to deal with A LOT of critical situations where your focus power and self control are being pushed to the limits.

Imagine that in Romania, cases in which the police battles gypsies armed with swords or guns is not a fairy tale smile.gif

I considered being on the police force as I have some good friends there. I did work with them for a bit assisting in other areas and yes Ben, there are some terrible things to witness that will indeed stick with you. It takes a special type of person to do that type of job. Some of the things that I saw were terrible and actually made me realize that I could not have done that job well as I would have gotten myself into trouble in how I would have dealt with the child offenders. They would have had a bad day, then I would have just been in trouble myself. mad.gif

biggrin.gif Awesome thread mates.... I wanted to become a doctor, an actor, and a cricketer, when I was 7 or so. tongue.gif Then, when I turned 15, I thought I'd become a pro-gamer and a doctor. (Well.. I could be OK not being a doctor if I had lot of money by gaming tongue.gif) Then, I turned 16, and I wanted to be a rockstar, biggrin.gif biggrin.gif and a doctor as a back up plan tongue.gif Now, 2 years later, I am in Russia, studying medicine, and now, playing guitar too.... smile.gif I wish I become a real rockstar and be a pro musician. rolleyes.gif

You might ask, why doctor all the way, because my dad is a great one smile.gif I really look upto him.. Since I was a little baby. I so miss him now sad.gif

the same as you Cosmin! I even studied Geology and Paleontolgy for 2 semsters
Later, I wanted to become the weird german in an international guitar forum who is known for his use of one famous riff in every collab...and sometimes the costumes in video collabw. One day Ill achieve that goal. One day.


laugh.gif You've accomplished that. Good job GMC-dad laugh.gif biggrin.gif

Play with emotion. Playing with all technique and no emotion makes you boring. And most importantly, Make faces while bending.

It is a great thread!!! When I was a kid and people asked who I wanna be I was saying that I want to be a president! LOL
Everybody was laughing at me! But I truly wanted that! After I picked up guitar and saw a movie about The Beatles I have decided that being a musician would be a better job than being a president so I changed my career goals!

I am a mechanical engineer (on paper at least tongue.gif) The things I learned in college, have helped me develop two very important aspects:

- teaching me how to solve situations/ problems
- organizing my thinking process

I never intended to work as an engineer, but being able to think like one allows me to learn almost anything smile.gif I like to think tongue.gif

That's what I trained as.
Although I really wanted to do a Course in Motorcycle Mechanics, I got accepted on the course with the highest marks on the Entrance Paper ever. Then they cut the course and I got offers from 3 different Colleges to study Engineering instead. I also qualified as a Chef.

I wanted to be firefighter - more specifically fire engine driver so I could maneuver that machine through the city and get on the scene fast hehehe smile.gif

Then the thought of being a musician and playing in a bend was born. I always believed that if you want something honestly a lot - you will be able to achieve it no matter what it is! Its all in you, you just have to "unlock" it.
