Ooh. I'd say it's fairly tell-tale given the phrase "a number of dreams".

I myself wavered between a number of dreams when I was young: (1) wishing to follow in th footsteps of Christ or Albert Schweitzer and go off to Africa to save the masses of starving poor there; (2) wanting to become a great author and write novels that would teach people the meaning of life; and (3) longing to travel around the world and explore exotic lands.
In terms of punctuation, I'd question the use of the second semi-colon. A comma is all that's needed. :D

..of life, and longing to travel....
