What did you want to be when you grew up?

It's kind of a fun question to look back on when you are older and have a real job. I used to want to be an NBA player. I would play basketball every day on my driveway; sometimes with friends, often by myself, just shooting around.

While practicing, I would pretend that there were NBA scouts driving around and they would find me and be like, "Hey check this kid out. He's pretty good!". Then they would offer me a chance to play in the NBA and get signed to a team. Kinda funny looking back thinking that anything like that would actually happen.

I never even played in high school. Thing is, I was pretty good, but I never even tried out. I didn't really like organized team basketball. It was not fun. I preferred casual, "And 1 Street Ball" style of play where you do lots of tricks. That was one of my childhood dreams of what I wanted to do when I grew up.

Now I think about what I would like to do if anything was possible. I would probably be a music producer or a movie producer. I have done these things on an amateur level, but I was never able to take it to the professional level.

I have a regular job that is ok, but not something that I am passionate about or necessarily excel at. It pays the bills. I'll keep doing it until I find something else I really want to do and can do.

Update: My jobs have changed over time. Some are better than others. I continue to keep an eye out for better opportunities and try to make more self improvements over time.
