Day 7 – What’s your dream job?

I’ve had more dream jobs than Snooki’s had bad hair days.

My short list over the many years has gone something like this. Each of which I was totally convinced that I was going to be when I grew up.

Astronaut
Marine Biologist
Veterinarian
Pianist
Tennis Star
Pediatrician
Artist
Interior Designer
Chef
Bakery Owner
Forensic Toxicologist
Crime Scene Investigator
Fashion Designer
Writer/Author
Children’s Boutique Owner

And, I’ve even accumulated some prize pieces over the years, to show for my dream job aspirations. Microscope kits. Casio keyboards. Shading pencils.

An adopt-a-manatee certificate.

Do you own a sea cow somewhere out there in the depths of the great Caribbean Sea? If that’s not drive, I don’t know what is.

I think my problem is that I’ve never been able to nail ONE THING down. I don’t ever want to do just one thing. While some people (bless their unconfused hearts) know from day one what they aspire to be, I tend to move in the opposite direction and attempt to be all things I’m decent at.

Am I an overachiever or do I need medication?

My current situation is pretty amazing. I get to be home with my kids while writing, blogging, designing (graphically), community-building and collaborating with other business women & men, from the comforts of my favorite knee-torn black Nike¬†sweatpants. Of course there are days when I want to bang my head on everything that is within a foot’s reach of it, so on those days, I just go out and buy shit.

Never underestimate the power of angry shopping.

Truth be told, while I love all that I do, there are still a few other things I haven’t completed yet and I won’t feel satisfied (I think) until I do. Those things are in the works, so don’t you worry for a single second. Because if there is anything DREAMY about what I do, it’s that I live in a world where you can do everything. Even if it means you look like a Fraggle 5 days a week.

What’s your dream job?¬†

  1. My dream job is to write. From home. :)

    Before that dream job it was to be a sportscaster. For years and years and years. Then I did an internship at channel 12 during high school, and all the sports guys told me they started in news. Which was boring as shit. And I didn't want to pay my dues, so I dropped that dream. I still got my communications degree though, with a focus in marketing. How I ended up HERE I have no damn idea.

    This post made my day! I'm glad I'm not the only one that's bounced around. It must have something to do with being artistic, no?

    Honestly, I think I am doing my dream job for now. When the kids are older I would love to ride and train horses again. That would be my dream job!! Loved reading your list, doesn't surprise me at all :) xo

    The trials and tribulations of the multi passionate! Your post made me laugh while nodding my head.

  6. I'm like you in that I have a ton of things I'd love to do or be...I have a list of about 3 or 4 degrees I'd like to go back to school for, including a PhD in City Planning and Development to go along with my currently unused Masters in that field...but my ultimate dream job since I've been a kid will always be to work for "The Mouse" as a Walt Disney Imagineer! One day...one day.....!!!!
