The other day I was thinking about what I really want to do with my life. Ultimately I want to be a stay at home mother when the time comes, but I don’t know how long that’s going to be. If I don’t get pregnant within the next six months or so, I’ll probably very seriously consider going part time and doing things I love with the rest of my time. One thing led to another, and I realized there are many different career options I could have gone with. I’m pretty happy with banking; I don’t love it but I don’t hate it either. However, I definitely wouldn’t have thought that’s where I would make my career. Here are some of my dream jobs:
-Zookeeper. I’d love to work at a zoo with exotic animals. I love giraffes, and I think it would be awesome to work with them every day.
-Traveler. Having some type of job where I travel to fun places to work would be awesome. I have traveled a few times to different cities to train people with the bank, and I think having a job where they paid me to travel like that would be cool. I don’t think I’d want to be gone all the time, but maybe a few days a month would be fun. Or I could get paid to review food and hotels and eat and stay places free.
-Personal assistant. I think it would be fun to be a personal assistant to a celebrity or someone rich for a little while. I think after a few months it might get old though, so let’s pretend it’s a temporary position.
–Housewife. I think this would be fun if I had activities planned where I could hang out with friends during the week, or volunteer to do things I’d like to do. It would be fun to help others and not have to worry about working.
-Blogging! I think blogging full time would be a great profession because I could work from home and do something I love. I just need to figure out how to make more money blogging, and I’ll be all set!
I think if I were going to go back to school I’d probably go back and study nutrition. I had considered going back to school for nursing a few years ago, but then realized that probably wasn’t such a great idea because I don’t believe in a lot of the western medicines that are shoved down peoples’ throats. I know that medicine is necessary in certain situations, but I think some medications are prescribed unnecessarily to people these days.
I think it’s fun to daydream sometimes, and I also think it’s funny that so many people work jobs that they would have never seen themselves working. It will be interesting to see what my career is in ten years! I hope that no matter what I am doing at that point that it makes me happy.
