I am currently going through a time in my life where I could no longer do the job that I am trained for. I was a chef and I hated working for people who didn't know what they were doing and were less competent than me. It upset me and didn't make me a lot of money anyway. It seemed that I wasn't happy at any job that I had no matter how much it paid, or how easy it seemed to be. I think that a lot of it had to do with the fact that I am also a poet. It is something I love to do and don't get paid a lot of money for, but do not mind doing it for little. It has grown into my passion, and I wish that I could do it for a living. But I think the ideals of being a poet clashed with the ideals of being a chef and reality...so it became a big cloud in my head. I think I want to own my own small business. Where I am free to intertwine both of my lives: poetry community and cooking while being able to survive and live my life happily.

Right now I want to be a teacher. And hope to school for it soon. Its something I see myself doing well at and being around children would be great. Also I see a good retirement later on with this career choice. Even though thats what I am aiming to be my ideal job would be a photographer. I love photography and the art of it. I just dont see it as a good long term career.

Kids would be fun to work with. Maybe you could even teach photography at some point!

I want to work in an office or in a call center because that is my older sister and cousin's job but I always see them look so stress and always feel annoyed in some of their caller so I think I will love more my first job and that job is working inside the kitchen. I finish Hotel and Restaurant Management and I also love cooking so I think that is the job that suited for me. In kitchen area I don't feel any stress, I just enjoy it.

Ideal job??? Well for me an ideal job is a kind of job that doesn't really seem like a job at all but still you earn much on it!! :))) And in that case an ideal job would be to be a travel writer in an international magazine firm :) Ever since it has always been one of my dreams and if I can be one why not? Hahaha.. =) I also love to be a diplomat although I have no ideas on it :) or a food critic because i can eat all sumptuous foods hahahah =) sounds a good idea too =) so that's it!! those are my three ideal jobs :D hehehe..
