When I grow up...

Wed Apr 11, 2012 1:08 pm

Right, so I'm just a little Bored BARNES, and procrastinating. Majorly.

Therefore, the premise of this thread is very simple: what do you want to be if/when you grow up? :) (Even if you already consider yourself in some way "grown up" :P)

I guess I should start. More than anything I would like to be a Musical Director, either in the West End or with a touring production; theatre, specifically musical, is something which I'm massively passionate about and like...yeah...

So, how's about you? :)

Start off with a small job at the Towers, then go somewhere in the Leisure Industry... other than that I'm clueless at the moment!

Marketing in the Towers would be cool though.

Well, when I'm older, I'd love to be an actor in the Theme Park industry (especially when it comes to scaremazes).

Failing that, maybe working in a marketing department  in a certain Staffordshire theme park.

I would love to work in the film industry, making and directing my own movies, or become a Voice actor for animated programmes :)

When I grow up I want to be John Wardley. :P

Seriously though I would like a job in architecture.

I would like to be an engineer, preferably designing rollercoasters.

I could get a job at AT, it doesn't matter where.
I would then work my way up to a higher position, and move over to the designing department, where I can design any type of ride, whether it be a small investment, or a secret weapon.

I've got my life planned out, now let's hope it turns out that way. :P

If I ever grow up, I would like to be a live sound engineer in a theatre, a studio engineer or producer, or if all else fails become a music technology teacher at a college or university.

Remember, those who can't, teach. ;)

When I grow up.....I'd like to think that I'd be able to make those around me happy, or at least help them to make their own lives happy. I also want to be able to look at the world through a child's eyes, still marveling at the little things (that are usually the important things) like stars and butterflies. Till then, I'll just concerntrate on being the best person that I can be, and hope that I don't make to many mistakes on the way.

When I grow up I want to go into management in either the hotel industry or the leisure industry. I know it sounds like some typical 'fan' response but I would love to be the manager of Alton Towers one day, and I mean that seriously!  You never know  :P

I've got a couple of ideas, something like owning a small cake shop or cafe appeals, though I'm not sure how good of an idea that is with my maths skills.

A job within film or television appeals, though something behind the scenes. Either a costume designer, prop designer or something within makeup - I have a passion for prosthetics and SFX.

I doubt these will happen but I really, really don't want to end up stuck in an office.

Debating moving & working at Towers as a ride host/op in a couple of years, once I've left sixth form. (Sooner the better, but £30 each day is a bit excessive to travel)

I would love to be an actor or a voice for an animated film or TV show. And ,of course, A ROLLER COASTER DESIGNER! Even though I highly doubt I will become one, I will never give up! I would like to be in the marketing department too! It sounds like a great ton of work and effort go into marketing, so it sounds like a great place to work!
The only thing I like better than roller coasters,Alton Towers, Towers times and Theme Parks is HARRY POTTER, yes, I am a Potterhead and proud of it! :)

I'd really love to be an Astrophysicist, but unfortunately you need to be smart, otherwise I think i'd be relativity happy working as a Police Officer.

But I really would like to work at Alton Towers at some point in the future.

When I grow up I want to be doing something better with my life than writing about rollercoasters on the internet at two in the morning.
