Topic: Dream Job

Punk's Jail thread inspired me to make this one. What was your dream job when you were a kid? I wanted to be a paleontologist when I was really young. I used to read tons about dinosaus as a child. Later I wanted to be an anthropologist or an author. So far no dice on any of them, but I keep workin at it.

Re: Dream Job

As a kid, I wanted to be an actor in film. Jim Carrey was a big idol for me. I also had an interest in being a writer...at an early age I began writing a number of short stories, especially of the horror sort.

I wanna somehow pursue a profession where I have the freedom to think and discover new things every day and (ideally) put these ideas and thoughts to good use by writing books/articles, or expressing them via some form of information medium so that they are communicated. I guess what I want is basically a research job that allows me to transform my regular leisure time into a career. How awesome would that be...

Re: Dream Job

Growing up, either an English teacher or a cop.  That's why I joined the Army, to earn college money.  Got out of the service and thanks to a DOD/VA fuck-up, I never saw one red cent of the college money.  Fought it for years but no dice.  Ended up kind of falling into social services and eventually became a case worker for the homeless and indigent, then a social security program manager, and then later an addiction counselor.  But I got laid off in 2010 (thanks budget cuts!) and have been an unemployed bum ever since.

But my dream job for the last several years is to become a writer/director.  Already on my way with the writing bit (sold a script a few years ago so I have a professional credit, even though it was never produced).  So I just keep plugging away at it, working hard to master the craft and write something that WILL get produced and make me filthy, stinkin' rich. lol

Re: Dream Job

As a kid, was 3 choices.
A Trucker, loved trucks and still do. Lived near a Truck-Stop and was always going there to chat with the guys. That's how I learned my english.

A Fighter Pilot. Always been addicted to Planes and Space Travel so it seemed the way to go.

A Race Car driver. My idol when I was young was Gilles Villeneuve and I was naming cars models before being able to say my name as a kid. I freaking DIIIG cars.

But it all went berserk. I ended up doing Graphic Design. Which is definitely a dream job for an artist like me. Best job I had ever was Art Director and Graphic Designer in an Editing House in France. 4 years. Place closed, got back here...

Now I am jobless and enjoy it a lot. Probably my actual dream job. Doing what I want when I want. lol

Re: Dream Job

When I was little I always wanted to be Batman but that would require dead parents and I very much like mine alive.

Re: Dream Job

My dream job would be an airline pilot flying massive passenger planes around the world. Sadly I was told when I was eleven during an eye test that I could never become an electrician or a pilot due to my colour blindness between red and green.

So now my ambition is to become king of the Universe. If you'll have me that is!...

Re: Dream Job

I wanted to be rich so I would never have to work and get to travel. Ad a teen a porn star or the guy that takes the pictures of the playboy playmates.

I never had dreams of being a hero or cop/fireman. I've always liked being me.

Re: Dream Job

When I was a kid I wanted to be a singer.
Problem was I couldn't do public speaking or preforming in front of people.
Then in high school I wanted to be an English teacher. Working at a high school now wrecked that dream for me.
Then lastly a writer. I love to read. And I have a pretty good imagination. But I have to much in my brain to sort out any kind of story ideas. It's all jumbled.

Now if I could be a Porn Star or Photographer, that would help but hey, can't have it all... Hahahaha

Even if it's all jumbly stuff, you can still make something out of it. Takes a while but it's worth how proud you become.

So go, WRITE my dear!!! big_smile

Re: Dream Job

Only a billionaire?  If I made a profession out of being sexy, George Clooney would petition the courts to deport me from the planet. 

He's a really sore loser.

Re: Dream Job

A dream job I actually would have liked to have was to be a stand up comedian. I always thought it would be fun to stand up on stage and just make people laugh for a living. Sure, I'd have to come up with lots of fresh and relatable material but it could probably land me on TV and it just seems like a really cool job.
