    There are so many things you could be an artist in.

    Maybe you haven't found what you're good at yet

    My favourite professions of my childhood were rather ungirly :

    1) postman: I thought driving along with your bike all day and delivering mail was cool.

    2) truckdriver: I liked the idea of driving through Europe all alone. And I was quite a fan of autobahn driving as a child, so truckdriver (long-distance) seemed appealing.

    I wanted to be a cowboy, a soldier, or a artist when I was real young.
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    Well I had wanted to be Batman, but Power Rangers had to come along and ruin my world. Then I couldn't make up my mind between the Red Ranger or Batman til I was about 10 or 11. No joke.

    First I wanted to be a crocodile and upon realising this was impossible I figured that the next best thing was paleontology, eventually this was refined to archaeology or being in Iron Maiden.

    I wanted to be a robot. The idea of having metal skin and being able to destroy everything in my path was very appealing to me as a young kid.

    When I realized this was not possible, I wanted to be a pilot. Flying kilometers above the earth always fascinated me.

    I also wanted to be a pilot, preferably a jet fighter pilot. But that was only because I had watched 'Top Gun' too many times. After that, it was professional football player, and then a professional musician.

    I always wanted to be an architect.

    I somehow forgot about it for a few years and now i regret i didn't become one.

    I'm too much of a dreamer

    I wanted to do Dressage or Show Jumping, veterinarian or dog trainer. I'd still love to do any of these things! Still waiting for the day I can be a horse owner again. Someday...

    This was also my boyhood dream. Even though he was not an architect my father designed the house I grew up in. That inspired in me a fascination for buildings, especially those designed by other "amateurs", like Thomas Jefferson and his own self-designed house, Monticello.

    Like you I also went through a period in my life when I lost touch with this original interest. But when it peaked again I discovered something that understandably was lost on me as a child. My mom said that when I used to check out books from the library they were almost always about Europe, northern Europe especially. Looking back I wondered why I was drawn to this particular type and not something else such as asian architecture. I agree with many others here who feel that even as children we are able make a subconscious connection with our ancestors, which can take on many forms. For me it was fascination for Germanic architecture even before I even knew what a Germanic was.

    My reawakened interest in designing buildings inspired me to have a closer look at my heritage, something I had cared very little for up to that point. As a result of all this I am back in school and in the process of earning my degree in architecture. Sybren, its never too late.
