What did you want to be when you grew up?

Eg A fireman etc

And did you ever get close to that goal?

I always wanted to be an artist :)
I did try to follow that dream. Went to art college. Went onto Uni. Did night classes on other subjects eg printing, sign writing.

Then one day I realised that I would need to be uber lucky to just land a job just doing what I loved.

I now work for an internet service provider...doing knack all to do with art lol

I still do Graffiti in my spare time...But sadly i dont get payed for doing what I love.

I wanted to be a singer or an artist

I won nemerous song competions at school but my parents got fed up taking me to comps and drummed it into my head not to do it... so I turned to art, I loved it but then realised I've got as much chance winning the lottery that getting a good job doing art all day... Ended up doing Law at college, got my degree but hated it, Now working for a big finance company, I love it.
