Aloha Friday #80

Filed under aloha friday

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

My question is:

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

    Teacher, Vet, Private Investigator and Reporter.

    I was a teacher for awhile and I guess writing a blog is somewhat fulfilling my Reporter dream. That leaves the other two. Oh well, 2/4 isn’t bad.

    When I was a young child, I wanted to be an astronaut but my brother-in-law told me I wasn’t smart enough.
    I bet I could have!!!
    My next career choice was to have a Wildlife Conservation Reserve in Africa.
    I know I would have been good at that!
    Finally in high school I wanted to be an Anthropologist.
    What I did succeed at is being a fun loving over protective full time mom and now I’m a blogging grandmother!!

  10. Kari A. says:

    Is it completely sad that I really don’t think I wanted to be anything? I wanted to marry John Taylor of Duran Duran. Does that count?

  57. AmyG says:

    I always wanted to be a teacher. I worked in daycare for 6 years, so I got a little “teaching” in. And now, even though I’m not in an “real” school, I am homeschooling my girls, so I guess you could say I grew up to be what I dreamed of? ;)

    Easy! I wanted to be a Lawyer. I am furious when it comes to something I believe in. Or when I have been wrongly accused of doing or saying something or lied to or lied about. Just a couple of my pet peeves.

  76. Valerie says:

    Okay I meant ferocious not furious. lol

    I always wanted to be a teacher.

  79. Jen says:

    One night my mom, brother and I were talking about what I wanted to be when I grew up and at the point I was as undecided as I am now. I apparently said I wanted to be a Dallas Cowboy cheerleader and a police woman so my brother said that I wanted to be a “pistol packing pom pom policewoman.” I will never forget that. I wanted to be a school teacher, too.

  80. MommyAmy says:

    I wanted to be a mammologist (someone who studies mammals). A close second was a zoologist. I did volunteer at a local zoo for 4 years while I was in high school. I quickly realized that I pretty much suck at math and science and although I LOVE animals such a career would require a lot more study of things I didn’t like.

  81. Voronda says:

    I wanted to be a lawyer.

  82. Storm says:

    I always wanted to be a business owner. I’m not sure I had a specific business in mind but I knew I wanted my own business.

  86. Christy says:

    I wanted to be an archaeologist and then finally ended up going to college for accounting/marketing. Quite a difference huh! I actually ended up being a stay-at-homeschooling mother and a soapmaker!

  87. Heatherlyn says:

    I totally wanted to be a marine biologist! HAHA, I ended up getting a J.D.

  88. Kila says:

    I thought I would be a stay-at-home mom of 3 kids. I have the 3 kids, but am working full-time, which I never thought I’d do!

  89. Pamela says:

    I still don’t know.
