a) A magician
b) An inventor
c) An author
d) All of the above
The correct answer is d, all of the above.
Why did I want to be a magician? To magically create lollies of course, I would never have to worry about buying things, I'd be able to conjure everything I ever wanted with my magic. Duh.
I think every child goes through the phase where they want to be an inventor. I once wrapped a rubber/eraser with black electrical tape and stabbed thumbtacks onto the sides and it was my proudest 'invention'. I took it to school and everything. Genius.
The best one for last, an author. I wrote non-stop, on random pieces of paper, in books, the back of worksheets, etc. When I was in Year 3 I was convinced I would write an amazing novel, be hailed a child prodigy, sell millions of copies and become an international superstar. Unfortunately that did not work out.
Also I wanted to be a vampire in Year 4 after watching The Little Vampire. I would launch myself off the top of the couch and attempt to fly...like a vampire? This post is getting sadder and sadder by the sentence... Of course, vampires, magicians, inventors (what a specific occupation) and multi-billionaire authors are not exactly jobs that I aspire to be now. Wouldn't it be amazing if what we wanted to be as a child was what we became in the future? And think of how naïve we all were, don't you miss being so simple minded? I do. But I guess we all eventually have to grow up.
