Anyone out there doing what they love to do? Or do you have a dream job? I was just thinking about this of late since I'm really just losing enthusiasm and passion for journalism. Starting to get too corporate.

If I had a dream job, I think I'd like to be one of those people on TV who travel around the world and report on places to visit. Or work on some documentary team exploring ancient ruins or studying wildlife (yeah, yeah, shaddap... i'm a geek). OR I would love to learn mechanics and open up my own shop.

Anyway, just thinking aloud.

And please do not say your dream job is a PIRATE or NINJA!

Seriously....??? I think Devious hit it on the head when he said I should test drive cars for magazines.
That job would be SWEET! They pay for your travel and you go all over the place....

I rag the hell out of all cars that I drive, so if it don't break, it's good to sell!!!



Oh yeah, and I want to be a stunt person in a movie, and a pro sky diver and I want to be Queen of Karlidome..... is that asking for too much?


Wow. Just..................wow.

I'd really like to return to my old job of porn star. Although physically demanding it was an enjoyable job most of the time. Every now and then the whips and chains got a little dangerous, as well as hanging from chandeliers and balconies. I got to meet many interesting personalities and learn their many sides, even sides that most people never see.

Oh yeah, testing cars would be a SCHWEEEET job! They could sell more mags if you'd pose nude w/the cars, too, maybe.

Getting paid to ride. It doesn't matter how, preferably racing. But a tester for moto products like the guy that was on TWT a few weeks ago would be cool too; 100,000s of miles per year. I don't like to write creatively so motojournalism really isn't an option.

I'm with ya Whirled, I would love to open my own bike shop someday. However I'd also love to work with robotics, designing, building and testing.

LadyK, how many cars have you gone through?? lol!

I remember in high school I also wanted to work in the genetical engineering field. Oooh, blue eyed or red eyed fruit flies? Hmmm....

Ed, have u tried working as a lingerie model maybe? It's not as physically demanding.


If it doesn't kill me, I'm doing it again.

Stinks to be you all. I love my job, I cant think of one I would enjoy more. Even sometimes when I think about working on a Formula1 crew or something I realize that I would never be as good at that as I am at my current place.

From my point of view, life is too short to waste 1/3 of it doing something that you dont enjoy. But then again, not everybody had my parents who started a trust when I was born to pay for my college tuition, I realize I owe them a lot.

Even right now, working a ton of overtime I am enjoying myself
