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

Well when I was a kid, I wanted to be either an actor or an author (or both). My role model at that time was Jim Carrey. I also wrote a lot of short horror stories (most of which I still have packed away in boxes in the back of my closet - might have to try to dig those out some day).

Now (age 19), I wanna somehow pursue a profession in which I have the freedom to think and discover new things every day and (ideally) put these ideas and thoughts to good use by writing articles, or expressing them in some form of information medium so that they are understood by people. 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.

I'm not rich, far from that but I still don't work... Dream life totally. big_smile
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
