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.

in my case, i was already interested in taking up an engineering course when i was a senior in high school, but still undecided on what specifically. my dad was an EE-dropout, and he kinda pushed me to become an EE major..and i was cool with it. finish what he started kind of thing i shifted to computer science after my 2nd year..heh (got the degree as well). realized the EE subjects were too much for me and i enjoyed computer programming more

19 years old: Nurse/Professional Chef

What are you doing now:

Working on my generals to apply to nursing schools while working as a server/bartender to pay the bills. I'm 21.

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.

So some retard negged me with this...
Quote:
Liar. Male-nurses are phags. You ARE NOT A PROFESSIONAL CHEF. don't kid yourself. i wasn't fooled. LOL

Where did it say there I actually was a professional chef you idiot. It's what I thought I might WANT to be during while managing a restaurant and being a saute line-cook for a little bit while reading through some textbooks from the Culinary Institute of America. That said, I was accepted to Kendall College in Chicago, but decided it wasn't what I want to do as a career, I'd rather cooking be a joy than a job.

And nursing is an extremely gratifying, stable, profitable field, especially if you return to school to get your doctorate and become a practitioner or get a business degree to go into administrative work that's 6 figures easy with much better hours than doctors.

This is some bullshit I'd expect in the NBA forums...why don't you come out in the open and we can match up. I'm 99% sure you don't have shit to show for yourself in comparison to what I've done in my life so far.
