Each month, the Pasadena Voice poses a question to a local fifth-grade class. This month, students from Ms. Crawford’s class at Sunset Elementary School answered the question:
What’s one thing you can’t wait to do when you get older?
I want to be a plastic surgeon or at least a doctor at the hospital because I want to help people when I get older, and you can get a lot of money. I am going to be rich — just kidding. But I want a lot of money for my family and to get food, and I can buy stuff for the homeless or for people in need.
When I grow up, I’m gonna be a teacher! I love school (maybe not always, though) because I have an awesome teacher, Ms. Crawford! She’s the best. I miss our intern, Mrs. Kenney. She is awesome too. I also want to be a YouTuber. My favorite YouTubers are Pat, Jen and their cat, Cloud!
When I get older, I want to play baseball because I love baseball. I also want to help other families in need. I am also athletic.
I can't wait to be able to drive. I want to become an NFL quarterback and I want to be a point guard in the NBA.
When I get older, I cannot wait to get a job as an author. I love writing books. So, I can get paid to do what I love.
I can’t wait until I grow up so I can be a professional softball player. I want to play for the Gators when I grow up. I will be hitting dingers (home runs) and making awesome plays. I can’t wait!
I can’t wait to own my own business. I will be a party planner or I would like to be a chef because I heard they make good pay. I would like a house and a car as well.
I can’t wait to play sports when I am older because I love to play with a good team. Also, I can’t wait to drive to all of the places that I will be able to go to.
I can’t wait to get a job. It’s a job that is like a nurse for parrots. You basically work at a parrot shop and you can work in the nursery!
I can’t wait to drive around and go on trips and work, and then meet new people and learn new skills.
I can’t wait until I get to be more independent. I’ll get a job and get paid. I’m the one who has to keep the Mierzewski name going, so I have to have a kid.
I hope to get a job. And I want to help animals, like dogs and snakes, so they feel better and so people can be happy to have their best friends again.
I can’t wait to live my lifelong dream of becoming a politician. I would seriously love to become a politician or part of the government. I do not know which branch of the government, but I would love to be secretary of state.
I can’t wait until I’m more responsible, move out, become independent and get a job. I don't know what job, but any job.
I can't wait to be able to drive and become a teacher. I also want to be a track runner and be very athletic. I could also drive myself to any store I would like and buy anything I want!
When I get older, I can't wait to move out and be able to get my own pets! I have been saving money for one, but my mom’s allergic, so she won’t let me.
I can't wait to help people, become a lawyer and get my own stuff — my own house, car and job — so I can be independent and do what I want. And keep my family going.
When I get older, I want to run my own shelter to help all of the animals out there that need help in the world. I really want to help them.
When I get older, I want to be an entertainer and make lots of money.
I can't wait to be an engineer because I really want to be one and have my own store and teach kids how to code and build.
I can't wait to be a SWAT officer. That would be my dream. I can’t wait to serve my country. I think I would be good.
When I get older, I can’t wait to be the principal of a school. I want to work beside and coach others in helping students be successful while creating a culture that is energetic, enthusiastic, fun and relentless!
