If money were no object, what kind of job would you like to do?

I suppose everyone needs to work to earn a living. Worrying about having a good job for the future starts as early as college, where we strive to learn the expertise needed to have a good job, and thus earn to live comfortably. Don't you wish there wasn't too much emphasis on money when taking on a job? If money were no object, I'd like to work as a naturalist. I'd live on an island and take care of my surroundings. I'd commune with nature as a way of life, and live simply for the rest of my life. How about you: if money were no object, what kind of job would you like to have?

When I was a kid I wanted to be a marine biologist....not doing any sciency math stuff, but riding around on those little boats, looking at whales and stuff like that. However I get horribly seasick, so that's not really a realistic career for me. These days I would like to be a professional artist/crafter. I love knitting and do make and sell some knitted items, other crafts too. However at this point it's just a hobby. I would say I make enough not to take a hit on my supplies or web/paypal fees...but it's more like a self sustaining hobby than a career. Maybe this could be an option when I retire from the 9-5 world....in about 50 years!
