Kids are conditioned to think about tomorrow from a very young age. What do you want to be when you grow up? What classes will you take in high school? What will be your college major? Sure, some people get to age 30 and still have no idea what they want to be when they grow up, but we all spend a lot of time thinking about it and being forced to make decisions that lead us down one path or another. It's a lot of pressure! But before all the stress that comes with it, when we're still young enough, we just have the pure joy of imagination and thinking how much fun it would be to live our lives as whatever our fantasy career might be, no matter how likely the reality of it is.
When you're a kid, having a dream of the future is one of the purest kind of fantasies we can have in life. It's not bogged down by any real concerns or fears or practical necessities. it's just what seems great to your mind as a child, and that's kind of awesome. So do you think we can guess what you wanted to be based on who you are today? Why not take the quiz and we'll find out?
