My dream job (other than motherhood)

Carnival

My dream job changes all of the time. Here is a list of my most recent aspirations:

  • Social Worker – I know, you think I’m crazy. And you’re right! That is why I wanted to be a social worker. I can relate to the underprivileged. I still have a large interest in sociology and psychology, and think perhaps I might go after this one in the future.
  • Editor – I love correcting mistakes and helping people stay on point. There are two reasons why this is off my list now: 1) I don’t want to jump through the hoops necessary to be in this job, 2) I don’t want to work in the world of magazines (see #1).
  • Casting director – I would still love to do this. I already do this in my head every day: “You are all wrong in this role as my boss. You’re now going to play the role of the janitor.”
  • Graphic Designer – I have always been a creative, crafty person. I have dabbled in beadwork, painting, rubber stamping, scrapbooking, knitting, and quilting. I have a particular love for fabric and scrapbook paper design, and generally have a knack for color. I could see myself going back to school for this one.
  • Food critic – I don’t think I need to say much about this one. I LOVE food and I love to be a critic. 😉

  1. Photographer, I love everything beautiful.

    I have a morbid interest in diseases but am squeemish so a medical researcher would be good.

    Wedding planner – I love to organise things…so it wouldn’t have to be weddings really.

  3. I’d like the editor thing, too, since I love correcting mistakes as well. Though I wouldn’t want to work for magazines, either. But I can’t tell you how it irks me to see published novels with typos, misspellings, and no closure to ideas! It still bothers me, long after I’ve finished the novel.

  5. Welcome, DSB. I completely understand the annoyance with typos in books. There are some books that I will stop reading if it’s just too messed up. There are a lot of them out there and it really makes me want to go into the editing business. Apparently it’s hard to find a good editor??
