Growing up, I had my heart set on becoming a pediatrician. However, I went back to Viet Nam for a visit during one summer and it basically changed my whole view on the world. Now, I really want to pursue a career in diplomacy because I love the idea of interacting with people from different cultures and I love international affairs.


Check out my blog: White-Out Blots

How did Mandela get the will to surpass the everyday,
When injustice had him caged and trapped in every way,
How did Ghandi ever withstand the hunger strikes and all,
Didn't do it to gain power or money if I recall,
It's to give; I guess I'll pass it on

well, when i was little, littler then i was now, i wanted to be everything at one point. ranging from a stay at home mom to a vampire.
and now. well... i still have many things in mind. but theyre still things that i could actually have a chance of being.
singer
band member
pianist
guitarist
artist
cartoonist
manga artist
author
model
fashion designer
teacher (any, regular, music, art)
possibly a dancer, ive started taking classes
figuire skater, i used to take classes for the longest time, quit, and im about to start up again.
actress posibly
just about anything with music or art or dance
and i still want to be a vampire! <IMG class=inlineimg title=">. or possibly a werewolf, sprite, elf, faery, princess, etc. etc. etc.

yeah. i still have alot of things in mind. but i, personally, dont think their so far fetched for me. like i actually do have a chance in all of these fields...well...maybe except the vampire one awwww


I was a dork before it went mainstream
I am, unfortunately, very much obssessed with everything twilight
I am different, unique, I am me, and you cant change that
I WILL become famous one day, anyone who tells me otherwise is a liar
I am pure awesomeness
I am the coolest nerd you will ever meet...ever
I would REALLY love a bouquet of black roses.
I LURVE anime and mangas.

That one where you live on a tropical island in the barrier reef for 6 months and take pictures and write blogs.

That's all I've ever wanted to do.

I love to write, so basically anything that involves that. Literature and music are my life, so an English/Lit major is going to be great for me. I'm not crazy about the idea of teaching, but I'm okay with it. As long as I can teach college and not a bunch of whiny high schoolers.
I changed my mind a lot. Hell, I still do. I'm sixteen. However, I know what area I want, just not what career. I'm a settler, so nothing that requires me to travel extensively. I'd like to teach, but I want to be able to write novels as well.

I read about that! That would be awesome, wasting my time away in paradise. Though I don't think I can do the blogging part, and the required publicity, not what I can do. :/

I'm pretty sure I want to be a veterinarian, or a physician/doctor of sorts.

Either neurologist/neurosurgeon (of all the human systems, I love the nervous system and some of the endocrine system, mostly nervous though), forensic psychologist/profiler (i love abnormal psychology but being in the same few psych wards would be boring. I'd want to travel to others places continuously and do the practice), emergency medicine, researcher for neurology or psychiatry, or work with infectious diseases.

Hmm I wanted to be a psychiatrist, but now I'm not sure, I might do psychology or something to do with law/forensics, or even pathology.

Either architecture or social work. I like doing all-encompassing.. demanding projects that help people.

I'm leaning toward the architecture because I've been pressured to take that route and it's more aesthetic and even abstract when I need it, I guess ideally, teenhelp would allow me to fulfill the other part in a small way.

Journalist. In the music reviewing area, being able to attend loads of concerts and listen to music and then write my opinions on it would be the dream job.

I do change my mind a lot though, but I know for sure journalism is what I want, or possibly being an author.

I want to go into the research and development of pharmaceuticals.
A.K.A. I want to cure disease, I'd like to do something big, like contribute towards curing aids, but this seems too idealistic, so something smaller would do me fine too, like meningitis

Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books.
Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.
Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.

Well I've decided that eventually I want to own my own restaurant and work as head chef there. First though I'll have to work as a chef to raise some money and get some experience.
I do quite like the idea of being the primeminister too but all the political stuff bores me so I don't think I'll do that.

I want to be an Egyptologist, although I'm not certain if I want to focus on the linguistics or the archaeology, work in a museum or as a professor etc. But I know that Egyptology is what I want to do.

Something in the financial sector, either in the City of London or New York. Banking, insurance, private equity, that sort of thing. With any luck the economy will be rebounding by the time I'm out of university (going in October, three year course) and we'll be back to the good old days of six-figure bonuses. I guess I'm not really passionate about anything, so given that I won't care much about the work whatever I do, I may as well get rich out of it.

I'm still deciding what I want to do. I can't seem to decide between something to do with English, the arts, and law, or the sciences. It's kind of confusing, because I need to choose what courses I want in order to get into university programs soon. I should make up my mind soon!
