Ten on Tuesday 06/05

10 Occupations You Wanted to be When You Were Young for Ten on Tuesday.

1. Fashion Designer
2. President
3. Reporter
4. Mom
5. Astronaut
6. Architect
7. Social Worker
8. Graphic Designer
9. Writer
10. Artist

Some tidbits:

As a kid I used to draw all kinds of dresses I wanted my grandmother to make for me. Then as I got older I decided that it would be cool to design clothes.

I talked about being an astronaut forever when I was young. My mother said I was obsessed by it until I witnessed the Challenger explosion on television at school. My mom said I never talked about it again after that.

I've always been interested in art and thought maybe I'd go to school for architecture until I learned how much math and physics was involved. That was a real turn off.

I've gone to college and done work as an artist and hope to someday pursue a full time career as one. What's interesting is I never wanted to be a teacher but worked many years in the field.

I'm quite a bit older than you, so I remember the explosion in '68 that killed Gus Grissom and two others. I was somewhat shielded from it, but still knew something had happened. I can see why you'd stop aspiring to be one after the Challenger.
