When I was a kid, ( a long time ago ) I wanted to be a nurse. I just loved the idea of helping people.
I am not a nurse. I work in a totally different field and feel very happy about it. As a matter of fact, I can’t imagine doing anything else. What was your dream job when you were a kidJanuary 28, 2011 1:13 am at 1:13 am #733359always hereParticipant
as a kid: an artist
as a teen: a biologist, & then I wanted to help find the cause/cure for cancer after my Mother, A’H was niftar suddenly from brain cancer.January 28, 2011 1:27 am at 1:27 am #733360s2021Member

Besides Mommy and teacher,which I b”h got to be…a graceful dancer and piano player–which I didn’t get to be.
Isn’t there a chazal that says every single person who passes from this world,leaves some dreams unfulfilled?January 28, 2011 3:14 am at 3:14 am #733366eclipseMember
I can play with one hand,but it’s not “the real thing”.January 28, 2011 3:15 am at 3:15 am #733367deiyezoogerMember
kid:i wanted to be the only child, now: oh am i glad i’m not…….January 28, 2011 4:49 am at 4:49 am #733368
Kid: work in medicine, work with hands (making/fixing things)
Present: spend time learning, work with hands (carpentry/handyman)
Right now I am an unlicensed EMT (I passed the course but never got certified in time so I have to re-take the course at some point), work for a handyman, and am working on getting an apprenticeship by a carpenter (oh and I am also in yeshivah for first and second seder)January 28, 2011 6:05 am at 6:05 am #733369
yossi z. – You mean un-certified. All EMTs are unlicensed.
BTW, why did you take the EMT course?January 28, 2011 6:16 am at 6:16 am #733370
What do you mean all EMTs are unlicensed?
I took the course to have the knowledge and so when I go to help someone I am not stam a yukkle but rather a certified professional (it doesn’t pay well enough to provide a parnassah though I am quite tempted to join hatzolah once I am allowed to (after shanah rishonah)
I didn’t get certified not due to personal choice rather due to circumstance. I would like to get certified at some pointJanuary 28, 2011 7:12 am at 7:12 am #733371
Noone gets a license, just a certification.
There is nothing wrong with having first aid knowledge by taking a CPR & First Aid course. You don’t need to be an EMT unless you plan on working on an ambulance. I don’t mean to exclude volunteer ambulance services. Until that time, why take an EMT course?January 28, 2011 8:02 am at 8:02 am #733372mischiefmakerMember
When I was really little I wanted to be s/t in the medical field. As a teen, yes a job in the medical field is well paying usually but I can’t stand the sadness it can involve. Now I want to be a makeup artist, hair stylist, or web designer. I doubt I’ll end up in any of those fields. I like the thought of working from home which usually is something with computers.January 28, 2011 8:32 am at 8:32 am #733373
The things I kept seeing were more than just CPR/first aid/first responder level. Working on an ambulance unless maybe volunteer would not have worked out (besides the pay issue) so instead I decided to be a non-affiliated unit (though I would still like to work on an ambulance nonetheless)January 28, 2011 4:17 pm at 4:17 pm #733374
Yossi -First Aid and First Responder aren’t the same thing.
“The things I kept seeing were more…”
Can you give an example?January 28, 2011 4:29 pm at 4:29 pm #733375mikehall12382Member

I know they aren’t the same thing I was just saying that they were situations which even a first responder can’t take care of (I was one for two summers in the catskills)
Well let’s see … How much can a FR do for bad trauma (ax to the foot/leg, concussion via axe handle/back of the blade, swimming accidents, trips and falls off of bikes onto rocky ground then/and down rocky hills) or how about med assessment cases (though I did do escorts (on foot) for kids who needed to take their meds, I couldn’t be assigned to the kids who due to it being late (they “forgot” to take their meds for too long) had to have the meds brought to them or needed to be transported to a hospital. Here is a common one in the mountains, animal bites or poisoning, … Is this enough? (and yes all of these happened). Oh did I mention this was in a boy scout camp (where these things for some reason seem prone to happening)January 30, 2011 5:07 am at 5:07 am #733377
YZ – Nothing you posted couldn’t be handled by first aiders, unless you were doing the transport.January 30, 2011 5:29 am at 5:29 am #733378
Not Rhode Island certified (don’t ask it’s a long story) then again our (RI) EMTs can do more than NY ones (as I said don’t ask RI is a bit cuckoo)January 30, 2011 7:33 am at 7:33 am #733379smartcookieMember
As a girl I had this dream to be a high school teacher. I was so sure that this is my future. That is…until my first model lesson. I saw right away that it’s not for me.
I also had this dream to become a professional photographer but doesn’t look like reality anymore.
Now I have a dream to become a makeup artist. Perhaps one day 🙂
