15 years old: Talent Representative (like Entourage)

19 years old: Nurse/Professional Chef

At one point in my childhood I wanted to be a professional skateboarder, then I tried to drop in from a vert-ramp, busted my face 10 times and finally said fuuuuck that.

It's gotten even worse these last few years. Just a straight up dead end city.

Learn to play the game of life homie. Just because you aren't passionate doesn't mean you can't use it to get what you want

You know how I said I have a great work ethic and amazing focus when I have passion for something? Well it's the exact other extreme when I don't.

Doesn't. Add. Up.

Nice try, though.

it seems a lot of people want to when they are young. i remember back then I saw a video on how astronauts train. after seeing them do the g-force machines and stuff i chickened out and decided that it wasn't for me

6 years old: NBA player/vet

13 years old: NBA player/vet/lawyer

15 years old: Vet/Electrical Engineer

19 years old: Electrical Engineer

What are you doing now: Majoring in Electrical Engineering and pursuing a double major in math (when the classes are open). Not sure if I will ever get the double, though.

Reason for each:
NBA player- love basketball. The reason I never pursued is because I was never extraordinary at basketball, which is obvious, haha

Vet- Love animals. The reason I never pursued this is because I don't think I could deal with failing to save the animals. It would destroy me. I know you still save a lot as well. But that's a hard failure to accept (for me). I do regret this decision sometimes (even though I like EE).

Lawyer- I like to argue. I like the idea of doing that for a living and that (theoretically) you win or lose based on who has proven their case more logically and concretely with evidence.

Electrical Engineer- My dad is an EE, so I grew up around it my whole life. I enjoy math and sciences. I respect the profession immensely, as it is one that requires intelligence in order to find solutions to problems. You don't just regurgitate shit you have memorized from a book that you will forget the next day. It is a degree that I will feel proud of when I graduate and can look at proudly. I like the active thinking and how each problem can be unique and have a different route to solving it.
