Did life turn out like you expected?

Poll #1232346 Did life turn out like you expected?

Considering what you wanted to be as a teen, what you graduated college from, and where you are now... how straght is the path?

Fairly direct (eg: teen computer hobbyist, got a CS degree, now work as a server admin)
4(14.3%)
Tangential (eg. wanted to be a nurse, got a degree in social science, now work at a dental claims office)
2(7.1%)
Pretty unrelated (eg. wanted to be a vet, graduated from the US Navy as medic, now operate a hot dog stand)
8(28.6%)
It's been a crazy ride. I don't even know how I got here. Will you buy me something?

If you went back in time and told your teenaged self where you are now, what would probably be the reaction?

I knew it!

No way, really?

Who are you, crazy person who looks like one of my parents but not really? Stop saying nonsense! No, no! I'll prove you wrong!

Bummer... [weeps]

I'd also like comments. Man, I am so bored today! In the comment section, pretend you have a magic bottle that can send a message back in time to your teenaged self. What would you tell them?
