Wow an Egyptoligist sounds interesting, however I would probaby be terrible at it! :D

I want to be a psychologist, I mainly want to work with kids who have ADHD but im interested in working with kids with other disorders as well (like aspergers, OCD, GAD, etc...).

Some kids might never get the chance to get any help and they are the ones I want to reach :)

An Egyptoligist sounds neat, fli!

boone1 - I have a great idea! You could be a special ed teacher!
Or practice psychology, then become a teacher (or vice versa)

I'm currently working towards my current career (behavior analyst). I just finished school and will sit for my certification exam within the next few months. I am doing behavior therapy right now, but in order to get the position I really want I needed more education and the certification.

If I get bored with being a behavior analyst, I want to do something w/ computers.

The way I see it:
You don't have to have just 1 career. It's easy for us to become "bored" with our jobs, especially when there is a lack of challenge. There is plenty of time in life to have more than 1 career :D

I will always be a 'devotee' to Greek history. It is misunderstood as 'mythology', by 'modern era'....the same as 'modern' will be 'myth' of a past.

The Greek Classics.
To teach to the 'appreciative'.
As did Hermes.

In a parallel Universe..Cassandra. (0;

To know Greek Classics...
To teach....to give breath to the past.

Lets see, if I had unlimited funds and the opportunity to learn it all, I would study mediteranian and ancient south american history, Science, Computers and Art. I would like to be an artist, a computer programer/web designer/it spec./game designer, a science teacher or Ancient Cultures Historian ..... but I'm 36, and never have enough money! So I am broke, borred, stuck with dead end jobs I hate and frustrated about it... Ahhh Well...Sorry, my angst is showing. It's always good to dream though.

Lately, I've gotten very interested in my own disorder... ADD, obviously, seeing as where I'm posting this message XD...

Anyway, I was looking around on the internet for Carreers in Psychology and Psychiatry... I'm pretty sure I want to be a Psychologist now, and specialize in disorders such as Savantism, Autism, and AD/HD... It really interests me... and I'll be one step closer to taking hold of my own ADHD

Emergency Medicine doctor. I do my best work under pressure, and I love that anybody who needs help can come to the ER and get cared for, whether you have insurance or not.

VisualImagery, I love the idea of a motivational speaker/advocate. I love the people in my ADD support group so much, it would be great to set up a program for people who don't have money to get psychiatric care.

Isn't it TRAGIC how hard it is to find a good history teacher? What is history? It's people... it's US. I mean, think of the people who did all the amazing adventurous things you read about... they didn't go in knowing, "Hey, I'm gonna be in a book in a few hundred years". They had no idea what was ahead... and they did these amazing things, and risked all. ANd it's just a shame that kids don't get lit on FIRE by thinking about it. THey should think "I can do that, too; I can change the world. Let me see what these people did, maybe I can find tools to change the world with the power of my life". And darn it, history really ought to charge people up like that, not put them to sleep. I was an adult before I was able to harness that concept for myself, that these were poeple just like us, and we can do these things, too, if we're courageous enough.

I'm 45. I want to be soooo many things when I grow up, I wish I believed in reincarnation:)

When I grow up I want to have my meals cooked for me and then told when they're ready to eat.

I want someone to do my laundry and pay my bills...and clean dishes too please!

When I grow up I want to learn a bunch of new stuff everyday then go outside and play basketball, soccer, baseball or just run around and act silly with my friends.

I want someone to buy me the latest electronics gadgets and toys and once in a while some new clothes whether I want them or not.



When I grow up what I really want...is to be a child again. :D

I have everything worked out for what I want to do when I grow up. I would like to writer, but not just any writer. I don't want to get bored with my job so I have come up with a idea. Firstly I will write the book, send it off to tons of publishers (which is so going to be hard, but so worth it) and then the editor. When somebody says they'll publish it I'm going to draw the characters and scan them into the computer, from then on I will scan some of the characters/pictures above all the chapters and then I will use Adobe CS2 to make the jacket of the book. It encorprates everything I love into one.

I want to be an elementary school teacher, but my back-ups are school psychologist/counselor or child/adolsecent psychologist...I love working with kids and I want to major in teaching, minor in psychology because I can't choose between the two. ^^ Ever since my dx of bipolar, I've loved learning everything I can about psychiatric disorders...

08-17-07, 07:23 PM
I do not dream of people serving me nor do I dream of great fortune. All I want in this world is to be me! I've spent 27 years dreaming of what I want. Career, money, power...It all means nothing if I don't want to be me. If you don't know who you are a career means nothing. If you don't know who you are money is worth nothing. Power can take over any soul if that soul can't see his true self. So instead of dreaming of what you want, learn who you are, everything will have meaning. Most wealthy, powerful or career driven people are not truely happy, because in the end all this can be taken away and we are left with nothing but ourself.
