Dream Jobs

While my friends were working normal mall jobs in high school, I wasn't allowed to do anything. As a working adult in my mid 20s I can now appreciate being able to have a childhood void of clocking in and out for a measly few bucks... but I can't lie...I always thought it would be cool to be a cashier. I don't know if it's the little "beep" or handling money, but the idea of being a cashier always made me smile. Not that I would ever quit my job to do price checks in aisle 3, but I do scratch the itch by opting to hit the self checkout line every time I'm in Jewel. As a matter of fact, if I have the option of checking myself out anywhere I do it.

Some days I find my mind wandering and thinking about what I'd do with my days in a "perfect world". I think splitting my time between MAC Cosmetics and an animal shelter, with some lifestyle writing/blogging would be my ideal gig. Those are the things that never get old or boring to me and that I'm passionate about.

I'm curious to know what everyone else would love to do with their days, if $ wasn't a priority.

Lifestyle Maven!! I would be a glam fairy godmother helping people revamp their lives (health, clothes, home, etc). A fabulous Martha Stewart if you will:-)

I would love to either cook or shop all day :) The only thing about cooking all day is that I'd most likely taste everything which would kill my diet ;)

I treasure my teenage working experiences. It wasn't anything that I was forced to do but something I wanted to do.

I'm currently working on something that I would like to do. I'm building a business with a great dedicated business partner. The money will come and if not...I do have a degree. :)

If $ wasn't a priority, I'd defnitely be all non-profit, all the time. I'd split my time between AIDS advocacy, youth development and spending time with the elderly.

When I wasn't on the ground working, then I'd be planning fabulous galas & event and alerting the media about our wonderful causes.

Great post!

This stuff gets me thinking: Why can't we all live the lives that we ultimately want right now? Like, why can't we adjust our lifestyles to accommodate for what we'd like to really be doing... (i.e. get a cheaper apt, etc) Unless we're putting in the work to get to end up being able to live our dream, are we not just wasting time? Life is just so short and I feel like we should be scratching our itch to do what we'd really rather be doing.

I've heard it said many times that if you do what you love the money will come. I wonder if folks are able to step out on faith and really go after the lives we all want.

you already know for me it would involve anything with dancing pretty much. after going to ybb, i thought about how cool it would be to own a studio and be a dance instructor.

my ultimate dream though is to be a professional dancer and tour with a major artist/appear in videos

If $ wasn't an issue I would spend my days shopping for myself and others and traveling the world.

I have always had a job since I was 14 years old. I have held many jobs from being a consultant to a fast food team member. And I have gained a vast amount experiences from each. With this being said, as of now I can only see myself doing what I love to do which is shopping. Becoming a personal shopper or Stylist would be my dream. But!!! Because $ does matter, I'm sticking with engineering; For now at least.

it's crazy that you put this up and now days later i'm a freaking dance instructor!

Great topic. If $ wasn't an issue, I'd be at a computer making up stories all day. I'd write a novel every year, some years more. I'd try to get involved with writing for the screen, definitely some plays.

I'd sit in an office like a regular job and write imaginary stories. Sounds childish, but most ppl watch imaginary stories 3+ hours a day.

I'd teach occasionally and always write. I thank God for the time I've been off work, because I rediscovered an old love.

Thanks for the topic...
