    I mostly wanted to grow up and be married and have a lot of kids... I also wanted to be able build whatever I wanted and be an inventor... Later on as a child I wanted to become a soldier and fight in a war as well as having my own ranch after that to raise my children on.

    I am no longer a soldier, and I work at home building what I want and inventing new ways to make, build and do things, raising my 7 kids on my ranch. Kinda cool when all your dreams work out perfectly.

    Of course it was a desire entirely of fantasy, but I always wanted to be a great warrior or conqueror. As a child I admired military prowess and the charismatic genius it takes to be a great conqueror. I've therefore have always loved medieval knights, Vikings, the Spartans and admired men like Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, Genghis Khan, Napoleon, and uncle Adolf. My imagination as a child were usually centered around these types of people.

    I also always desired to be a great musician, poet, and general artist.

    It was a shame for me to enter into adulthood and realize my childhood dreams would most likely never be a reality (especially the warrior/conqueror part.) At this time I still don't really know what I want to be.

    I always wanted to be a fighter pilot. I had a book about world war one aces that I loved. Eddie Rickenbacher, the Red Baron, Oswald Boelke, the list goes on. Actually I still have the book. I did join the military and retire. Just I became a military diver instead. It was exciting but I still long to fly. Just seems it would be awesome.

    I wanted to be a weatherman. I watched the weather channel all the time, tracking various storms around the country and waiting for storms to hit my area. I also had a real talent for predicting storms and rain, and was utterly obsessed with watching storms, particularly if heavy rain was involved. I would draw radar images of storms, post them up on the wall and pretend I was doing a weather report in front of various imagined audiences. My obsession with rain and storms started when I was about 5 and saw red/orange storm clouds, illuminated by the city lights, moving over our house slowly covering the dark-blue sky behind them. It really freaked me out, but in a good way.

    After that I wanted to be an astronomer for a very long time.

    I always wanted to be a paratrooper.

    I also wanted to be a robot. I imagined that the time I became an adult technology would be so advanced that I could enlist in a top secret military program that would replace my flesh with synthetic tissue and steel components.

    My brain would be encased in a crystal so I could control everything.

    I wanted to be a rock star! I am now a designer but I do play in two 'weekend warrior' rock bands so part of my dream came true... best of both worlds.

    I always thought singing or being an artist would be fun. Unfortunately I can't sing, draw, paint or anything
    Proud to be Germanic.

    Even though my ancestry is English, Germany is my favorite country.
