If you could choose any profession or career, what would it be?

If you didn't have to worry about attaining a certain income or education level, which career or profession would you choose for your life path? I am already part way there with being a part-time writer. I would also like to run a little metaphysical bookshop/healing center as well as write.

Yep, big money--which of course off-sets the risk of serious physical injury.

I have chose my career already. I plan on becoming a professional writer. I'm working my way towards that now. I am going to school for my Bachelor's degree in English - Writing, I write as many articles as I can and I am currently a part time freelance writer. I write brochures for a franchise company and I just completed my first one for a bbq joint. I'm slowly working my way towards my ideal career. I like your picture!!

Congratulations! It's hard work but so worth it. In my experience and from other writers I've talked to, mixing fiction in with non-fiction/business writing is the best way to pay the bills while trying to get your name on The New York Times Bestseller List. Best of luck!

Yeah, actors do seem to have it pretty good. Tons of money, lots of possessions, etc. I think it would be hard to be one though, just because every single thing you do is publicized. It would be a bit hard to have a private life....

I've always wanted to be a Part-time Brain Surgeon, and then I'd get to pick a lot of peoples Brains. I'd like to try taking their brains out, and replacing them in different positions. Perhaps this would make people think differently. Some people have more brains than others. This really isn't fair. I'd try to make it a level playing field by dividing everyones brains up. Some people would benefit by having their brains stirred around some in a Big Pot. And last but not least, I'd want to help the brainless people. I'm wondering if a Pig's brain would be compatible?

That's a very interesting answer. LOL. That's one thing I could never do--partly because I would want to poke around the brain for a really long time and the patient would probably die on the table. (I am one of those people who love to squish the Peeps Easter candy packages, so giving me free license to squish brains would probably be a bad idea.
