any type...this is just a spin off of the other thread about what job you wouldn't want to have..

I would love to be

an astronaut

an archeologist

a US Senator

a journalist working for National Geographic

a wine grower in the south of France who also makes pottery on the side ;)

Always wanted to be a marine biologist/oceanographer like Jacques Cousteau.

I had thought about horticulturalist or esthetician. I'll stick to my small flower bed and working with a derm, especially with skin cancer on the rise ( cases are doubled in my area ) no longer sounds appealing.

A trust fund baby sounds good...

On a more serious note, I've always thought I'd like to have been an interior designer and architect or a landscape designer...

That's what I said. We worked long and hard to earn this "career"...best job I ever had!

I'd like to be a physical therapist.

I'm okay with the job I have; I love it and I'm good at it. When I was kid, I wanted to be a writer and for a short time, I wanted to be a nurse. And then, I worked as a nurses' aide one summer and saw what nurses really do and how hard they work and realized I wouldnt make a good nurse. Now, I often dream about retiring early and becoming a jewelry designer.

Because babies are my favorite people, I would like to be a Neonatologist at Duke University Medical Center.

I always wanted to be one of Keith Olbermann's producers. I will now add Lawrence O'Donnell to that list.

Another thing I would like to do is flip homes or restore old homes for clients. My home is from 1912 and has a lot of history. I went to our local historical museum and got a lot of info on my home and the neighborhood. It would be fun to help people restore their homes to their former glory (with all the modern amentities too!).

Are we talking reality or fantasy??

Of course, I want to be a famous model, actress or singer.

If I didn't have to do the hard work to actually do these jobs:

1) Singer (I love to sing--you should hear me in the car Smile)

2) WORK WITH CATS

3) I love working with words so I'd like to be a linguist

If I think of any more, I'll be sure to let you know (I'm sure you're all waiting with baited breath {#emotions_dlg.biggrin})

I would have like to have been an interior designer. Too late now. I think they should offer that option in high school for kids that don't really care for academics. Learning a trade would be a nice option.

In my fantasy world, I'd like to be the world's best singer. On a much more serious desire, I'd like to be able to master the English language and use words to express myself intelligently. Finally, I would love to have a small orphanage for throw away children. I hate to even use the words to describe them in such a disrespectful way, but I think y'all know what I mean. But, if I kept it small, I could make enough time to love each one of them individually, and nurture them so they know that someone really loves them.

Oh, one more thing, I'd love to be a professional makeup artist. That would be awesome, IMO!
