Fantasy Jobs

What's your "fantasy job"? You know, the job you'd just love to do but you feel like there's just no way that would ever happen?

Me, I would want to do what David Sedaris does, write darkly funny observationl essays and go around reading them aloud at universities and literary groups. That job would fulfill every deep-seated need I have, I'd get to write, I'd get to speak in public and be funny, lots of positive attention and just famous enough that I'm ultracool yet the paparazzi wouldn't be interested in taking a picture of me in my sweats buying Chunky Monkey at 2:00am. Yep, I'd really like to do that.

What's yours?

  • For me, it would be something involving exotic animals. Maybe working at a zoo, or as a conservationist in Borneo, something like that. I have a lifelong love for all creatures and can't believe I somehow ended up in a career that has nothing to do with animals. Life's like that, I guess.

  • I'd love to have been an Architect. To have planned out a few communities with homes I designed all from 2,500 sq feet on up so families had a bit more space for their money.

    Also for me an actress..for comedies, I'd be the female Kevin James, love him! But now there is the actress playing Molly on that show...we could almost be sisters she and I ! LOL I need to apply now to be her long lost sister or cousin! LOL

    One other thing is to have an animal sanctuary, for dogs and cats...horses...all animal..etc... like they have on DOGTOWN at Best Friends animal shelter, have one here on the eastern coast. A no kill shelter.

  • to the OP, that job would be most awesome!
    However, I think my dream job would be a gossip writer. Lol
    or a Personal asssistant to someone not SUPER famous, but famous enough to see the inner workings and drama of there life first hand.
