WHAT I WANTED TO BE GROWING UP, CHRONOLOGICALLY

Clearly I hadn't the foggiest what I was doing. Still don't - not really.
  1. A cash register. Not cashier, cash REGISTER. Because then I would have money all the time.
  2. A paleontologist - until I found out they work outside in the dirt all day.
  3. Some kind of world-famous singer/actor.
  4. Hugh Grant's character in About a Boy.
  5. Some kind of fiction writer, ideally in the video game industry.
  6. Richard Castle. I never said I was a grownup. 😉
