    My Tutor has emailed back and despite having been out of touch for nearly 2 months she says I can carry on and still maybe manage to complete the course.

    So just wondered what everyone else wants to be when you grow up? : :rolleyes:

    Reach for the stars...:stars:

    Thank you... Sorry... a stupid question from a stupid person... my failed attempt at trying to be positive.

    I don't think it's stupid at all, but since I'm a grown up I can't change it any more, I wanted to be an English teacher or a rock musician. In the next life maybe :D

    What are you studying Ditsy? Good luck with whatever it is :hug:

    Believe it or not I am also "grown up" . My 5 yr old keeps asking me what I want to be when I grow up and it got me thinking that although we are adults that surely there is always a chance to change our paths... if we really want to...

    I am 39 and studying Psychology... but more on the Forensic side - was hoping to be a profiler one day, I wanted to help put sick people like my father away.
    If I can get past this...

    thanks for your reply

    I admire your courage and will, couldn't possibly get myself do something like that. Hope you do get passed this and complete the course. Try to keep in mind your goal. Hugs back to you :smile:

    I always wanted to be a fireman, even now at 36 I still wish I was. Instead, I teach archaeology.

    I think like Peter Pan, there is a part of me who does not want to grow up, ever. So far, I've pretty much reach all the milestones I had set for myself when I was a kid. What I don't want anymore is to be defined by my work, so its not anymore what I want to be, but what I want to do. And it has to be fun and interesting.

    When I grow up, I want to study law at Harvord or Cambridge university. I want to study law and go on to be a lawyer :smile: x

    Haha, it's funny how many people want to become a teacher. Interestingly enough, that is my goal as well. Although I've had a few hurdles along the way. Awesome thread!

    I am in a program right now to become a teacher.

    The program I am in now is like boot camp. It is one of the best, but it is a REALLY difficult program. They want you to be perfect. I'm so stressed right now.

    But I do love the children, they help motivate me.

    Teaching is one of the most rewarding and challenging careers. I wouldn't recommend it for the faint of heart--it's definitely hard. And you get crap from all kinds of people who don't know what it takes to teach. But it's worth it. Somehow, it's worth it.

    I also want to be an artist when I grow up.
