Thursday Thirteen #3 - What I Wanted To Be

Thirteen Things I Wanted To Be When I Grew Up

  1. Detective - Nancy Drew was my hero
  2. Movie Star - just like Ginger from Gilligan's Island
  3. Fonzie's Girlfriend - technically not a career, but Ayyyyy!
  4. Wonder Woman - I thought there really was an island of super women
  5. Archeologist - my mother said absolutely not, because my nails would get dirty.
  6. Doctor - surgeon, to be exact
  7. Marine Biologist - come on, who wouldn't wanna be?!
  8. Airline Pilot - I still harbor fantasies of flying a plane, but sadly, I'm claustrophobic and cockpits are really small
  9. Kindergarten Teacher - I love kids, but not 24 of them for 6 hours a day
  10. Writer - yes, even when I was 11 I 'aspired'
  11. Resort Owner - specifically on Fantasy Island
  12. Singer - then I heard a tape recording of myself. OUCH!
  13. Spy - I was in charge of the uber-hush-hush organization called the A.S.I.A. (Amelia Street Intellignce Agency). And now I have to kill you...

I wanted to be a doctor, singer, and model when I grew up as well. I ended up in customer service and being a mom and I love it.

I'm up as well! Do drop by.

That is a great list. Especially being Fonzie's gf, and the resort owner of Fantasy Island. Can I come work for you? lol

My TT is up also.

I didn't want to reun Fantasy Island I just wanted to go there! But I was right there with you on the marine biologist wannabe boat until I saw Jaws for the first time!

Fonzie's girlfriend? Heh.

Racy Li said...

What a coincidence! I am actually ALL of those things!

Well, through my characters I am :)

Raggedy said...

Great list!
Have a wonderful Thursday.


I wanted to be a Doctor, Singer and Dancer too. It is nice to recall what we wanted to be when we grew up isn't it.
My T13 is up too.

Wonderful list! Off the top of my head, I wanted to be a veterinarian (not a vet, but I am a cat wrangler), a scientist (I'm not, but Romilly is gonna be one), and a concert pianist (was on the road for that but I jumped off).

Happy TT! Mine this week is about cats, LOL.

Christine said...

I wanted to be a movie director. Was determined to do that until I met my husband. :)

I wanted to be a teacher or an archaeologist, too! No worry about the nails--mine are already crappy. Happy TT!

What a great list of aspirations! :D It's funny, last night I was telling my daughter how one of the things I wanted to be was a Marine Biologist. I had decided I would go to Galveston, TX and study there... I hadn't thought of that youthful dream in a looooong time! :D

Amy Ruttan said...

Great list. Sounds like we had the same aspirations except for the Marine Biologist, because I am terrified of sharks and the Surgeon.

I would add to mine Fashion Designer or starving artist because I can (maybe not anymore) draw.

I loved Nancy Drew - well, actually, I wanted to be George when I was 8

Caylynn said...

Great list! I wanted to be Wonder Woman too! I never wanted to be a pilot, but I did want to be a stewardess - one of my aunts was a stewardess for Air Canada, and she always had great stories and terrific gifts for us, and dressed wonderfully. Both my sister and I wanted to be like her.

Happy T13. :)

Tink said...

Wonderful idea for a list! A lot of those would be on my list too.
Thanks for visiting my TT!
