Some people are unhappy with their current jobs. If you can have any job in the world, what would you choose and why?

since i was younger, i have always dreamt of being a stewardess. i like working as one as i am always fascinated about their appearance and the fact of being able to bring me to places, not to mention the fat salary they have, lol i just have to accept that some people are made to be stewardesses and others not... i belong to the latter... lol (never tried to apply as i think i fell short of their requirements).

Yeah, I wanted to as well when I was younger but I didn't have the looks nor the height. Darn those overhead cabins! :-)

I would prefer to work in my own business. I prefer to own a home-based business where I can put control of my time and activities. If I have that job and business I can have a lot of time with my family and also opportunities and time to travel which I really would love to do with my husband and kids.

I like working from home too. I wish I could find an opportunity to work online which pays at least half of what I am earning now. I miss pending time with family and just take a day off.

good question, don't know what i'd do. i used to work with horses and would do it again, expect for rotten pay. there's a thing about watching a young animal come along and then go on to be sucessful, the thrill of being the one who helped make it happen. i'm lost on what i'd do. i'm working on getting my partner to apply for a job, that's hard enough in it's self.

yeah, I guess, that's our predicament, the jobs that we love usually don't pay much and we just settle for whatever is available.

I was just thinking about this today, I would love to have a job working with dogs, I would want to be able to train them, That is something that I am very good at, I love being around dogs, so it comes very easy for me, I trained my own dog and she is so well behaved.. we just love her... :)

That's great! I think a lot of us settle for jobs that we hate just to make ends meet, which is very sad :-(

I would probably be working in the chemistry trying to do research for new medicines or new ideas on compounds. Or I would like to work in the music business either as a musician myself or a producer or something like that. Either of those fields are really intriguing to me and I already do a lot of research on my own for them.
