I wanted to be either an Investment Banker or a fighter pilot- I know, two extremes, but those are it.

Pearl #1. My dad told me that it's 1 person in a thousand that enjoys their job. Suck it up, or do something about it. You get what you settle for. (He said this when my sister quit a few jobs in a row). It's a paycheck, so you can go do fun things after work.

Pearl #2. Things that aren't worth doing, aren't worth doing well. Keep your job in perspective.

Pearl #3. You miss 100% of the shots you don't take (Gretsky?)

I wanted to be an astronaut or pilot.

I started flying lessons when I was 10 years old and that died quickly with me only doing three lessons.

During highschool, I really never knew what I wanted to do with my life. I'm 21 now and have changed drastically from my highschool days. I'm majoring in Business now, because I have a keen interest in business, just not sure what kind.

I mean Business is what makes the world go round...

I am thankful for what I have but how did I end up in the construction business? I never built crap when I was young or cared about how things were built.

Someone tell about following your dream and fulfilling it. I would love to read it.

Or tell about your "plan" never coming to fruition.




Could this be the mid life crisis people talk about?

ps. I think the whole "Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll" would have killed me within a few years of super stardom.

^ I count all day!

What I really yearn for is to be able to travel... any travel. I work and work and work. Put some sleep and food in there and that's all I do. I know I am not alone but damn time is running out.

Wow, this is a funny topic, just yesterday i was talking about this to a couple mutual friends.

I always wanted to be a race car driver, i raced Karting professional from age 5-12, then went to citroen open wheel racing 12-15 and did very well, after that reality kicked in, and i had to step away from the racing experience and doing some racing on the side. At age 17 i got the chance of my life, to drive a F 3000 car. Its a step down from F1, i did alot of testing for jaguar, and then i got into an accident that ruin my racing career at the peak of my career.

So i had no back up plan, (yes i know i was stupid), so i always wanted to be a VET, and that didn't quite work, so now I'm a Civil Engineer.

I guess i didn't do to bad...

I've always wanted to do meteorology, but I've always been able to work magic with computers. I do EVERYTHING with computers. Hardware, software, networking, servers, clients, Windows, Mac, Linux, etc.

My first job I can ever remember wanting to have was a cashier at the grocery store. After my mom explained that they don't get to keep all that money, that dream faded quickly.

After that it was to be a Storm Chaser, which I still today would LOVE to do, but instead, when I went to THE BEST METEOROLOGY SCHOOL IN THE WORLD... I said Computer Engineering first. I still hate myself today for that. I should have declared major in Meteorology and minor in computers.

I'm only 23 so if I were smart I'd find a way to get into meteorology now before it's too late, but I've tried to get back to school and I just don't have the money for it. I already have enough loans to pay off, I don't need more. I need to move back to Oklahoma and try to get into some the meteorology field as a computer guy, and see if I can further my education there. I don't even know how to describe it, but you have no idea how I feel when a storm is rolling in. I've got radar software and everything on my computer so I can make my own views and watch it all, of course... being in NC, it's always disappointing.

Dammit... why am I not doing something with meteorology?!?!

You don't like Texas, I know. But we sure do have some great storms. Growing up in south central Texas I would go out on our porch when a storm came through. Lay on my little towel and take a cat nap with thunder, lightning and sometimes hail all around me......I still do just the towel is now a lawn chair.

Thought about meteorology too.

Well, I mainly just give TX hell because I'm from OK and that's what we do, haha. It's all in fun. It wouldn't be my first place to live, but it's not that bad.

OK and TX definitely have the best storms. I miss it.
