    Default What's your Dream Job?

    Forget about your real job; what about your dream job?! Responses can vary in terms of how realistic they are. Is there anything you want to really explore that you haven't? Or is there a job you would love to be good at but in could never really do? Blessed is the soul whose dream job is their real job. I'm thinking I'll probably be getting more dream responses than realities.

    For me my realistic-ish job is to be a video editor. I really think it would be cool if I could tailor, edit film how I wanted to.

    And for my unrealistic job- Olympic snowboarder. Because, that'd be awesome.

    P.S. this thread was not meant to knock the real careers thread. It's just a subject of it's own.

    I recently got Mole's dream job when I became a Mod.

    Get paid to make political analysis/prognostics. And I'm currently studying to turn it into reality.

    Haha. Mine's similar except it's visual artist instead.

    Creator of animated films to express my ideas.

    Although it turns out I find the actual technical details of creating them extremely boring. So maybe story-boarding instead...
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Novelist for dream job, and it might become a reality someday as I'm able to accomplish most things I set my mind to ... except for setting my mind on something, apparently.

    Right now I would just really like my current job but with enough time built into the schedule to do documentation during the work day so I wouldn't have to stay late to finish.

    I don't even know if something like that exists.
