What did you always say you would do when you were younger?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
When I was younger, say starting secondary school age, I wanted to achieve three things in life.

1. To go to the Amazon rainforest.

2. To live in central London.

3. To own a white trouser suit.

I've sorted 1 and 2 although still not got a white trouser suit. I wouldn't have much opportunities to wear it as a student would I? I have a dark-purple one tho that my sister gave me as it didn't fit her anymore but it doesn't count as it isn't white!

What was on your list?

    When I was younger, I wouldn't stop going on about being an ice cream lady. I had this fascination with the truck/van type thing that the played enticing music and kiuds gathered around sooo fast. I wanted to to have that job so I could eat all the ice cream I want :yum:


    I also wanted to live on a farm. (it's so out of character for me to even think about living on a farm) but it appeals to me to live on a farm away from everything. One day, I do want to have second house of my own on a farm with cows, chickens and tractors. :chin:

    I wanted to be a doctor and a mountaineer in my spare time. The doctor thing is well on its way, but I don't much like heights, so I think I'll steer away from the mountaineer thing.

    1. When I was 2 I announced to my family I was going to be a red balloon when I grew up.

    2. Then I decided I was going to be in a film

    3. Finally, I decided I ddn't like this country and was going to live in France.

    Well, 1 never happened, and I'm still working on 3! But hey, 1 out of 3 ain't bad, especially when one's physically impossible!!:lol:

    Write a best-selling novel.
    Meet John Major.
    Paint my bedroom blue.
    Go to university.

    I really don't want to do the second one anymore. The third one has been done. A best-selling novel is far past my mental ability so I will give up on it. University is probable, but there still a feck load of work before I can get there.

    1) Become an actor.
    I went to an acting school for 3 years from when I was about 5 to 8. One day I just gave up.

    2) Have two kids, a boy and a girl.
    Early days yet.

    3) Go to Hong Kong/Easter Islands/Cook Islands/New Zealand/Japan/Patagonia
    I'm too anxious of planes at the minute.

    4) Beat up someone for harassing a women.
    Have yet to stumble upon the opportunity.

    5) Learn Tai Chi
    Ha.

    6) Write a book
    Not enough experience.

    7) Own a Lambourghini Roadster.
    Or steal one.

    8) Have a big fwak-off house.
    Working on it.

    9) Get a job to do with science. Toxicology and shit.
    Science is not my strong point anymore.

    10) Have sex with a Japanese girl.
    There's a suprisingly short amount in the West Midlands.

    11) Wanted to be a litterpicker.
    The shit pay wasn't enough to keep my fascination with the 'claw' going.

    I'm so bored of this already. Can't think of any more at the minute.

    I lived in a pink house once!! My mum's just a big kid and decided white was too boring, so she got up one morning when I was about 5 and painted the whole house pink before I got home from school! :lol: Then the council had a go at her cos it wasn't 'in keeping with the atmoshpere of the village'. We moved soon after that!

    I always...

    1) wanted a dog
    2) had the ambition of playing a solo in the Royal Albert Hall
    3) said i would kill myself before i turned 18

    I have fulfulled none of these ambitions successfully (however it could be argued that in the case of no3 that isn't SUCH a bad thing)

    Jesus! What type of up-bringing did you have, I'd be deeply concerned if my 8 years old came home from school and said;

    "Daddy, daddy, I want to have sex and do drugs daddy."

    No i had a very good christian up bringing. I just knew how i was gonna turn out. I even drew pictures of the type of clothes i was gonna wear and what pericings i was gonna have.
    I found them the other month and i was shocked as to how right i was.
    When i was younger i spent alot of time on my own so i thought about alot of things. And for some strange reason instead of thinking about ponys and pink barbie dolls i thought about life and what it would be like to be all old and teenage.
    But then i used to say i wanted to be married and have kids by 16 to so...i guess i was wrong about that bit lol
