  • I think it would be working with Animals - why am I not doing it? I am allergic to animals lol!~

    I don't think I've ever felt that "passion or drive" to do a specific job/career which is probably why I work where I do and do what I do

  • Artist and musician and I am! :) though i think an even better job would be owning my own arts and music preschool but i can't be a director because i don't have my degree in education and no money to finish school. but i can deal with commissioned artwork and singing and playing at kids parties and bars and restaurants if i had more work :)

  • I'll give the typical corny response lol. I am doing my dream job, I am a mother, mommy, mom, and wife. Then my second full time job is for the military and I love it too :)

  • Initially I wanted to be a vet but got discouraged when I blacked out one day doing community service hours for a vet & they were taking blood from a cats neck. Then I wanted to get into producing music but the schools were too far and I had to work & take care of 2 kids.
    What about you?

  • I am doing my dream job. I have always hated working for others. I like being my own boss and I especially like helping others so I am definitely in the right area. Best part is I am home with the kiddos. So I am set.

  • I went to school for Massage Therapy. I would love to work on a cruise ship. But, I am a SAHM and I homeschool my son. When I get done raising my kids we will see what then.
