What would it be and why? We often wish that we worked somewhere else, had a better job, a more high paying job or just a job we liked. Well heres your chance to dream about what could be. I have wanted to run a greenhouse flower shop for years. I love to plant and grow stuff and I want so badly to be my own boss and personalize my own shop. I know some day it will happen but I'd like it to happen more sooner than later.

Well I do a drama degree and I would love to work in film, not acting but maybe doing scenic construction or lighting. I'd love to direct a blockbuster movie but I don't see that one happening in the near future! In the mean time I'm working on doing a lighting and technical module so I can work towards my dream :)

Well, if I had my way, I'd go with being a manga illustrator since I've always like to draw or if chances are very favorable, a mangaka Even if it doesn't pay much, I would always enjoy drawing and it gets more gratifying when other people appreciate your work

Ah, you totally stole my dream job! Lol. I've always dreamed of being a mangaka as well. Drawing is something I dearly love and I agree that money wouldn't matter when you know your art is touching others.

Dreams can never be stolen... uhmm, well, if I literally took all the possibility for yours to occur, then we could say that I really stole your dream Anyway, if you do become a mangaka, let me know so that I could read your works... I would really appreciate it if I knew a mangaka for real And if some galactic miracle, I became one, I'd surely pull some strings for you to become one as well. We'd either become rivals or colleagues

I 'd like to have a restaurant of my own.I like cooking ,my restaurant would be unique in the whole world.I get to cook different dishes every day,and different specialties for everyday.My restaurant cook not only delicious but but also very healthy food.So we don't have any fries,for it does no good to the health.All customers coming to my restaurant are kind people,we don't charge the guest,they tip my restaurant with the amount of money they think we deserve it. I know that's a dream for me ,and it's so far away from my real life.But who konws,isn't nice to have something you can dream about?Maybe one day in the future my dream job will come true.I am so excited just thinking about it!

I would like to have a bookstore. A good bookstore with a wide selection. There would be a winebar and a coffee shop there too. It would be a nice quiet place where people would love to hang out and read and relax

I would love to be my area's Stacy London of TLC's "What Not to Wear" because I love fashion. Or, I would like to be on the SciFi Channel's "Ghost Hunters" because it looks so fun. But, I would probably run away like a scared baby on my first "Hunt" so, I wouldn't be very good at that. So, I think I would be better off as Stacy London, Jr.! LOL!

If I could be paid for any job ever, I would be a mom who always had her house open to whoever wanted to come over. One of those houses where people just walk in and feel at home. I'd love to have the whole neighborhood over. It'd be great. Otherwise, I'd love to be a nature photographer - unfortunately neither of these pays much so I'm stuck with accounting.

If i could have any job, i wish to be a veterinarian because i love animals. Medical studies in our country is so expensive. Thats way i did not took a degree in veterinarian. Instead i took up a course in computer science.

I really wish to become a neurologist or chemist. That kind of job wouldn't be a 'job' to me but a lifestyle. When doing things that I really want to do, I don't treat them as tasks, works or jobs. As of now, this dream job is still far from possible, but if I'm pursuing another degree after the one I am taking now, then this will become a reality.

If it ain't for the pay.. I would have been a video editor/director.. cinematographer,, anything that involves creating videos..movies.. but it's quite difficult to jump into that industry without any contacts from those in position..

I have always wanted to be a medic..When I was young I really wanted to be a soldier but then I don't want to kill people but save them..so what better way than to be a soldier and as a medic. It would have been the best job for me. I took up Nursing so I can apply as a medic but I didn't get to finish it but I do have a job now that pays me well and I am greatful for it because even if I didn't finish my course I am still paid well and I have a job.

wow there are many jobs I would like instead of the one I'm having now. Let's see, if I was asked to choose right now it would be as a writer or if not I would like to own a comic book/hobby shop I think that would be the best! :)

I wish I could make a million dollars writing!! I have a cookbook out, and I get aproximately $6 in royalties, per copy, so a million sold would equal $6,000,000 in royalties. That would be wonderufl for my husband and I.

I think my dream job (at this moment, my mind changes alot.. i like to do alot of things.) would be to have a craft "store". A place where people can come there and do crafts at that place but also buy supplies and what not. Because I LOVE doing crafts.. I think I'm creative lol. I would also like to be a stay at home mom. (teaching my kids crafts and how to grow a garden :D..)

I have always wanted to run a book store, I even had a name and logo. So far I haven't done anything with my little dream, but I also know that I never say never, God has brought me to things that He promised me over 20 years ago, just in the past 4 years, so I know that the visions we have for ourselves are not fruitless. I believe when we really feel like we want something or want to do something, that it is God nudging us to believe, what He has planned for us. Sometimes it is just our time is not His time. Blessings

Mad Scientist! My own lab with no pressures and a legal team to handle patent stuff... free to conduct experiments and design things that need to be designed and built (or even imagined).
