Hey Dude,

A couple of suggestions if you do not mind.

First: Use airline pilot or aircraft or airplane or just pilot, in the last instance the preceeding would be implied in English, since we do not use pilot to indicate a race car driver.

Second: The proper construction would be I became blind in one eye due to toxoplasmosis...

Orogerio,

I would like to make a couple of suggestions to improve your post, I will do so in the form of a rewrite, please let me know if you understand the changes or if you have any questions.

"Since I was a kid I've always liked computers, games and so forth.
As an adult I do what I like, because I'm a computer programmer now."
I wanted to be a soccer player. But I wasn't good enough... Luckily, I found out later computers and it drove me crazy. Then I became a computer scientist.
When I was child I wanted to be pilot.
When I was a kid I wanted to be a racing driver, I loved to watch Formula 1 races . :D

Hi,

I've always wanted to be a soccer player. In some way I was, but just an amateur here in our region. Even so, it was a nice time!

Best Regards!
When I was a child I wanted to be a teacher...
I think a lot of girls have that dream! Someone knows why?
When I was about eight years old, my parents gave me a board game for Christmas - it was about driving a truck around Europe and going from city to city delivering merchandise. I loved the game so much that I told my parents I wanted to be a truck driver. There went their ambitions for their son! :P
I remember that I wanted to be a soccer player. I have just made a bet with my brother, kkkk. I did intend to be it, while he had pretense to be a military. Well, i missed that bet, because actually, i have been graduated in engeneering.
When i was child, i never wanted be just one thing, i said: why be just one thing? If in the world there is so much to be done, have time for this, and yet keep thinking so, i wanted be veterianary, nurse, actress, and many others things that don't remember. Now, i want be tour guide and teacher for children. Still not sure.
I used to imagine I was a adventurer - a man who explores the whole world matching hard missions and facing all dangerous situations you can imagine.
When I was a child I didn't know exactly what I wanted to be when grown-up. My father was a truck driver, may be this was my most desired dream. But all I wanted to do at that time was to play, and I played all sort of playings. When we are kids, we have no time to think about future plans. Playing was that all of us (children) used to think about.
Omg, I wanted to be very things ...
one of them was to be teacher kkk. Today, I think: " god is more ".
Thank you!
