Don't be afraid to follow your dreams, teens. Just make good, practical decisions. Don't cut out when the going gets tough, either.

I have my dream career, but not my dream job. Relationship status: complicated.
Good words. Yet, I feel sorry for your relationship status. Hope things will get better for both of you .

I want to be a web designer. I've already started learning web design and I even build websites by means of different TemplateMonster website templates from https://www.templatemonster.com/ in order to practise. This job can allow me to be my own boss and have a good income and enough free time.

When I was 17, I had absolutely no idea what I wanted to do for a living, though I had a VERY long list of things I did NOT want to do :p;):p After completing my grade 12 as an adult student (at night school, since I was supporting myself by then, working as a waitress in a greasy spoon), I went to college to study design arts, where I was exposed to darkroom work (pun not intended! :eek:) via photography; that appealed to my artistic sensibilities, and became my passion as a profession. Later this month when I turn 63, I will have been working in the photo industry for forty two years (I started on the very day of my 21st birthday :D). It is a pretty nice job; I get to look at everybody's pictures and make them look as pretty as possible :)

Thank you, Angela :D I always considered this a gift from the Spirit of the universe (in those days I was spiritual, not religious, and not Christian). Most of our work is digital now. I have started designing templates to use for Scriptures and prayers here; the one I have been working on today is up to layer 1904 :eek: LOLOLOL What is one of your favorite Scriptures, Angela? I will put it on my current template-in-the-making, and post it for you :)

Just curious.

Not necessarily a current one. Even one you, once, had :) .

I'll start saying I wanted to be a veterinary, but then I changed idea, since I'm too sensible with medical conditions and I suffer of trypanophobia.

So, since I was ten, I want to be a cartoonist or a storyboarder/ cartoon characters designer.
Hope this doesn't sound silly.
What was the job of my dreams? As a kid, I wanted to be a vet like my Dad. That faded away during my teens. I wanted to study law, history or political sience and become a full time politician. That was the first desire God removed from me when I got saved. He spared both me and world for agony by doing that. I would have been terrible at it. Then I wanted to be a musician. I studied at the Norwegian State Academy to become a professional bassoonist. I dreamt of playing in one of the major orchestras. I played as a freelancer, chambermusic and in orchestra and even as a soloist. I also taught bassoon and conducted windbands. Due to my muscular dystrophy that dream and profession is crushed once and for all. Although I always tried to honor God with my playing, I really wanted the glory for myself.

One thing I never wanted to be was a teacher (like my mum). And that is what I have become! And I love it. The job I never wanted for myself turned out to be a true blessing and I could never thought I would love a job so much as I do. I get more and more challenges and it becomes more and more fun. I have my dream job. I just didn't dream it.
