Childhood Ambition

Remember the times when our primary school teachers used to question us?

"What is your ambition? What do you want to be when you grow up?"

It is still crystal clear in my mind what most of my friends wanted to be.

"I want to be a doctor because it gives good pay!"
"I want to be a lawyer because I wanna kick the bad guy's ass off!" (of course they didn't say this)

Those were the two most wanted careers that my friends wanna to pursue, however most of them ended up taking up engineering and business. Sometimes I can be really lame, sitting down doing nothing. That happened half an hour ago where I started to recall my childhood ambitions.

So, anyone ups for a guess what were my childhood ambitions? Winners gets a free lunch~ winks* lol.

When I was in primary school, I always dream of being a fashion designer. This is because I love to draw and design, but I gave up on this after I pursue my Degree in Business.
Then in secondary school, I have a thought of being an archeologist. Yes I know, what an ambition! I love history and I always want to learn and find out more about our world history and the history of each places. I believe each place lies a beautiful story behind them, even if some of them may filled with stories that involved blood and tears.
At that time, I thought if I failed to be an archeologist, perhaps I can be a geologist! Haha. Same reason, that is because I love geography. =) I remembered my mum almost gone crazy when I told her about this ambition.
I have another crazy ambition and this is the one that I am really into it. To be an astrophysicist! To study about the stars, the planets, the galaxies, the universe. It's just simply awesome!!! And I love reading materials on them, and yes I know it involves alot of calculation, physics but I still love it. Again, I told my mum that I want to be an astrophysicist. It is sad when she told me that if I am to work for NASA, I don't get to come back often. Oh yea, big dreams huh? I don't wanna work for Malaysia astronomy. I wanna study even more deep on these. Another crazy ambition I would say.

It just cross my mind that most of my ambitions are related to the nature. Perhaps I have this little connection with nature, that's why I love them. If u ask me whether I am still into these ambitions of mine now, I would say YES, and I am still hoping that I can do the stuff I like instead of taking up business. Somehow, not everything goes your way but at least I'm glad to know there is something that I really like to learn about.
There, my childhood ambitions. What is/are yours? Do share a little with us. =)
