When I was 14, I discovered Freud and went to heaven.

But my parents sent me to an art academy, so I became an artist/designer who is a really good shrink on the side.
Confused


Your parents made you go to an art academy? That's odd, it's usually the other way around. Even though my art is my purpose and everything to me, it's just considered to be time wastiing by the family. I'd kill to get training and a job as an artist/designer, but I have to do the sensible, independence-earning thing.

I can’t believe this thread is nine years old. I always wanted to be a lawyer and I am as well as my partner. I’m an estate planning, wills and probate attorney, my partner is a divorce attorney. How convenient.

@JeffreyEqualityNewma,
Ah, an oldie!

And how great that you became what you wanted to be. May I ask, in your avatar, are you on the right or the left?

I wanted to be a journalist......but Freud won. Psychoanalysts make good artists, I think. I know several.

I was a little boy, contemplating my life of isolation and loneliness. I told myself, "I'm going to be famous - a writer." I also dreamed in those days of astonishing my classmates by flying like Superman throughout the school. I became instead of a successful author a skilled laborer, with a tenth grade education. I do write, but have not achieved fame and fortune.

@edgarblythe,
You're doing just fine, edgar. You possess good personality traits that I admire; hard working, honest, and a good family.

Thanks, CI. I also spent a period wanting to be a paleoanthropologist.

I think, I tentatively understand you, Lola. But to get it correctly, could you please repeat or say in a different way what you wanted to express? Wink
