What did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be an actress. Oh, in between i wanted to be an astronaut, a pilot, a cop, a psychologist, blablabla. But i always came back to wanting to be an actress. Somehow - and i'm still now completely sure how this happened - i wound up here, in the studio.

Still, sometimes i feel the old longing to act creeping up. When George does his first video, i better get cast in it or me and him's gonna have words.


How about you? Did you become what you wanted to be?

I don't really recall ever wanting to be "something" when i grew up. I remember being told to write or draw about what I wanted to be when I grew up, but it was always because i was made to think of something.

I think i dream more about what I want to do (still waiting to grow up though) now than i ever did as a child.

I want to have my own radio station that also doubles as a pub. I want to have a beautiful little victorian house in the middle of a vinyard and make wine. I want to crawl through rivers and streams and study wild life (oddly enough turtles) I want to have a little workshop and make furniture and knick-knacks. I want to have a cabin in the middle of nowhere to simply grow my own food and sketch and draw and paint.

Notice I never said I wanted to work.

I wanted to be like Quincy, M.E. Or else go off to Africa or South America and study exotic diseases that make your legs swell up in the shape of llamas. Unfortunately, I got sidetracked. Now I'm a historian.

But in my next life...

I want to be a dolphin trainer, or anything having to do with horses or dolphins. What I want to do most is show horses and have a riding stable where people pay to take riding lessons inbetween shows. I want to speacialize (for horses) in Jumping, Stadium Jumping, and Cross Country. Gotta go, bye! : ^

I wanted to be: a lawyer, a teacher, a magician, a writer, a librarian, and a circus clown.

Currently, I am 36, in college, homeless, and working towards being a librarian.
