What do you want to be when you grow up?

That's one of my favourite questions.

I find it amusing that most people's first response usually is: What do you mean, I am a grown up. But I grew up with this question being used at home for fun. My mom would use it to change the world by saying "When I grow up I'm going to be the King and then noone will be <fill in whatever injustice that comes to mind.>"

So all of you lovely people: What are you going to be when you grow up?

Currently I'm sort of inbetween (a) opening an übercool hostel out in nowhere with lots of things to do at very decent prices so people would stay for a very long time, or (b) use my abilities to do some good not directly linked to this ROI-infested business I'm currently in.


  1. I don't think it will ever happen to me. I'd like to be alive when it happens, that's all.

  2. i'd like to be a fashion designer.

  3. Republic of Ireland infested?

    I want to be a children's writer. And have a bakery café. And be a masseuse.

    But most of all I'd rather be independently wealthy and do whatever I want to do and not be stressed all the time.

  4. I'd love to be a PR man for a sports organisation.

  5. I knew, just knew Shan would say that!! ALso got Atreus's and Jo's right too...

  6. My god shan do you ever think of anything else.
    And you talk about idiot.

  7. You are Betty Boop, Midge.

    Shan, you'd have to do Tall porn.

  8. What would your artist name be Shan? Shaggy the Shag! Scruffy Shan? Go on - we need a name!!!
