Bloganuary Day 22, Dreams

What was your dream job as a child?

Few months back, my brother and his family came to visit us. I was asking my teenage niece what her ambition was and what she wanted to do when she grew up. At that point my memories went back nearly thirty years. I was pestering my Dad that I wanted to become a Lawyer. My Dad was really adamant in saying no. He said that it was the most dangerous profession since most of the lawyers have some political party affiliation and it would not suit me. He chose for me what I wanted to do. I told my niece , I lost the first case. I had to prove why I wanted to be lawyer to my Dad and he won over me. Hence I did not get into that profession.

My Grandfather’s Dad was a lawyer and his brother was a district judge. My Grandfather had so many stories about that and I always thought I had lawyer gene in me. I loved watching movies with court scenes and would dream wearing the black coat and arguing court.

Autism did change so many things in my life and my life is not what I had dreamed about. Anyway I argue with my husband everyday without wearing a black coat. Some days I win and some days I lose, maybe all my dream is not lost!!!

  4. Very few people have their childhood dream job. I can see that you would definitely argue for what you believed to be right.

  5. I met qualified lawyers at uni. They could never find work. They were coming back to degrees in something totally different. I think under the surface they need to be sales reps as well so they can get new clientele. A tough gig these days with so many people doing uni.

  6. My District judge uncle was quite good in seeing horoscopes. He told as per my horoscope I would be a good lawer. Like you my father won the case and I entered engineering services.

  7. I am curious as to the “why” you thought you wanted to be a lawyer–you know, what drew you as a child to want that – maybe following other family members or the “fun” of arguing a case or the analyzing part, the glamor, the being in charge, helping someone who was in trouble . . .

    1. I think it was everything you mentioned. I really enjoyed the presentation of cases both the prosecution and the defense. By the way in India while I was growing up a lawyer was not a glamorous profession. So that was not a motivation.
