What was your dream job when you were a child and a teenager, and what’s your job now?

I wanted to be a military helicopter pilot, and now I work at an intelligence agency.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t accepted into flight school and my backup option was military intelligence… but after I finished my MI school the military wouldn’t let me into flight school afterwards because my MI skills were too valuable to waste flying helicopters.

So I screwed myself out of my own dream job.
