I wanted to work in motorsport or the fire service.

Did my work experience at Arrows Grand Prix but didnt get offered an apprenticeship. My mate did though, lucky bastard. He ended working for Ferrari in italy for a bit

Went to college, then joined the fire service and did that for 15 years before i packed it in (job politics). Fucked my head up now which is lovely

Work for one of the other emergency services now as a reasearcher

Didn't know firefighting was actually a dream of yours, such a shame that having realised it it's had the affect it has had.

Yeah was at Leafield. I dont think the site is even used by anyone at all now. I got to go to Silverstone testing with the F1 team one day which was pretty cool, and when i finished my 2 weeks, i walked out with a door from one of the Volvo touring cars signed by the drivers.

Used to love watching Londons Burning as a kid, think i got it from that.

Yeah it is a shame, still miss it some times, especially as i live  basically opposite the station i spent most of my time at

Wanted to be a journalist but got put off as I got older and I realised there's a lot of scumbags in that industry (no offence to any scumbags on here). Then I had no idea, but I swore I wouldn't follow my dad's footsteps into the boring world of IT. Now I work in software engineering. Sigh.

I did fancy being a rockstar for a bit but turns out I'm shit at writing and playing music. Still enjoy it though!

Always wanted to retire I guess.

Ended up in fire hydrant management.
Enjoy the job which is the main thing.
