RE: Career you wish you had chosen....
I'm 62 years old, and still don't know what I want to be when I grow up. But if I had it to do over again, I think I would have chosen mathematics as a college major right away (instead of after several false starts), then finished (which I didn't do in real life), then gone on to one or more graduate degrees. I think I would have enjoyed being a mathematician.

RE: Career you wish you had chosen....
Not so much a wish to have as a chosen career, but I often wish I had taken as many dance, voice and music classes as a child that I could have talked my parents into paying for. As it was I took about 2 or 3 ballet classes and quit the instant my brother laughed at me and about 3 or 4 guitar classes and quit because the metal strings hurt my fingers. Took a few voice classes as an adult but had to stop because I just couldn't afford to keep taking them. And had achieved my goal of bettering an audition song prior to using it for a particular audition. That's one of the things I would tell my younger self if I could go back and advise me.

Where are we going and why am I in this hand basket?

I tried for a career playing guitar, and fell short.

I think I might have enjoyed designing gardens. But part of me thinks it is better to save things you really love doing from being subjected to market pressures.

I liked teaching but wouldn't have if I'd gone into it now - whole different mindset on the part of administrators now. But it was great for about 18 years.

Tiger got to sleep, bird got to land;
Man got to tell himself he understand.”

RE: Career you wish you had chosen....
I was doing some monthly stats catch-up the other evening, kinda late at work, and ran into an interventional cardiologist (who does stents and angioplasties).
I said "Wow, you're here late", and he said "I know ... when I grow up, I need to get a good job". Tongue
