What did you want to be....

I remember when I was in 4th grade we had to right a paper on what we wanted to be when we grew up. What the hell does a fourth grader know? I grew up pretty poor and the first person I knew that had money was a real estate guy, Sal Mastropole. My uncle was a plumber and often did work for this guy. So I wrote my paper on being a real estate agent when I grow up.

I laugh everytime I think about it. Sometimes I think about doing it because I love looking at houses. But I really don't think I would ever REALLY wanna be a real estate agent.

What did you want to be when you grew up? Did you try to be it, or just move on to something else?

I wanted to be an over-the-road semi driver. That was then...now you couldn't pay me enough to drive for a living.

My aunt used to date truckers. I think it was because my uncle owned a bar/restaurant that was right outside a trucking place in Paterson, NJ.

That would be an interesting way to see the country and get paid for it.

Truckers get paid mad cash too.....

I wanted to be a Cop, but then I saw the salary and decided I didn't want to be poor.

Ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer

Big rig driver or a COP.

But i now i wouldn't want either of those jobs. In high school i was deceideing between working with compters or automotive tech. I picked working with computers for now. They may change at some point if i back to school again.

Re: What did you want to be....

I'm 45 and still don't know what I want to be "when I grow up". I was in the medical field (Hospital Corpsman) in the US Navy, then got into IT in 1991 and have been doing IT work since then. Try to find something you really enjoy, then find a way to make $ doing what you really enjoy! It isn't easy, but it's worth the effort!!
