>As I child I never really knew what I wanted to be, I was always unsure. The indecisiveness stuck with me. At some point I wanted to be an Architect, but nowadays that means a lot of math and a lot more boring than just drawing and designing all day. The 2000s would have killed Frank Lloyd Wright before even thinking about building anything he drew. A terrible shame.

>I bounced around ideas, thoughts for years until I found Graphic Design, but even now going to college for it I am unsure, there is so much I still want to know, to experience and to do. Why limit yourself to one career path? Also considering Interior Design, Photography, and something in the Film industry, and more recently I’ve thought of becoming a teacher. But that would not be in the near future at all, and I would probably want to teach at an Arts college, not sure I have the patience for high schoolers. XD Though that could change.

School teaching is not the faint hearted, the little kiddies are OK, but when they reach the teens, they are nothing short of feral.  


I cannot deal with small children, nor would I have anything to teach them. And I know about how bad highschoolers can get, that wasn’t so long ago, but also they, we, can be good, some classes felt like family. But again I would probably teach at a college level, more specialized, less of everything I don’t want to deal with.


Jolan Tru, may your day be filled with peace.

Man, I'll bet you anything our grade is 20 times harder than teaching kindergarten. We are CRAZY. Mostly the guys. How hard is it to not talk after the teacher's yelled at you 50 times and you've had detention every day and meetings with a counselor?????? grrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!! And our teachers must be pretty brave to have to come in and teach crazy hormonal teenagers all day. That's why respect [most of] my teachers so much! They're so brave LOL!

Not much different in HS, just less of them as it goes on. Which is why I didn’t even ever consider anything lower than HS.

 I would love to be a film director or work in Theater.   


When I was younger I wanted to be a ninja, a lawyer, inventor, and an Air Force pilot.

More likely the can't do anything else than teach unless they are prepared to do some menial job like digging ditches, lawn mowing, laboring or picking fruit, and they know it and are stuck in the job with no prospect of ever being anything but a school teacher.

Most your school teachers have never experienced the real world or the working outside teaching, having gone from highschool to college or university and then back to school as teachers. A lot of teachers are not much more mature in their outlook and behaviour than the kids they teach because they spend their entire working lives socialising with and teaching kids.

So it's not much they are brave, but more they can't get away from teaching and earn the same money unless they retrain completely and go into another profession.


Wow, I don’t know what kind of teachers you’ve know, but none of mine from high school were anything like this, all had different careers, some still had other jobs, some were going back to school, others went into administration, etc.


There might have been only one that was as you described but other than that all had many options and were certainly not stuck in any way, and pretty much all of them genuinely enjoyed their work.


Jolan Tru, may your day be filled with peace.

I'm young too... in the future, I'd like to write some fiction novels, like you Janeway. I'm pretty good, gotten a few awards for it, but as an actual full-time job I got noes ideazz. I might like to teach, particularly Art, Humanities/Social Studies, History or even English.
But other than that I have little idea... blaqh, I got time to decide, hell - I'm only frakkkkkin 13... rofl!

>I'm currently a college student studying history. I really love it- Old Regime through Napoleonic France mostly, and it's really fantastic. I have no clue what I'll do with it, but for now I know I'm happy enough.

>My dream.... I really want to have a family, which is a little at odds with my other dream, which is to work in tv or film. I have no idea doing what, but I did a lot of theatre in high school and loved it. I like managing things and there's something so passionate about the arts... I prefer film/tv because it's recorded versus as stunning as a play is when you see it, you can never reexperience it again... Which is both fantastic and depressing. hahaha

>I would die to be a part of something at all like Star Trek. die. hahaha

>or there's always the history channel. Or working as a historical consultant for something. But who knows?

>I just have no idea how to even begin getting in 'the business' and it's way too terrifying the stakes it involves. I guess I'm torn between stability and family and the creativity and excitement of the entertainment industry. boo

>It's so great to see everyone's professions and ideas and all. Great to see people happy with where they are in life- whether they're fufilling their 'dreams' or not.

This sounds oddly familiar :-) Change it to Geography, but even though I got my degree, I still don´t know what I want to do with my life. It´s been haunting me ever since childhood: there are simply TOO MANY things I´d like to do.


But working in drama (director/author or have my own drama school) or film/TV (writing only) has been one of the more constant dreams.


The more fleeting ones range from librarian to editor to travel agency work to youth hostel receptionist to tour leader/organizer to starting off all those wacky idealistic business ideas for real...


As for the latter: anyone with me to try and find sponsors to give long-term unemployed a return ticket to Japan (or wherever necessary) in order to assist with disaster relief?

There are lots of Schools here for Film, TV, directing, acting in Tamale-wood (New Mexico).


For teachers in high school - I've heard that menopause is Adolesence in reverse.  Maybe if elder teachers are at High School level, teacher and student may understand each other and get some education done.


I don't know - just an idea.  ;-}
