"ANY" job that has holidays off, (I am working every major holiday) and one you are not required to find your own coverage for when you are sick, and vacation you have worked all year long for, which by the way I no longer get anyway. The job I have right now, really has no incentive for any of their employee's, soooo, I am in the process of looking for another job like a mad woman, LOL!!

I LOVE my job, the two things that would make it my dream job? If I had another assistant (even part-time), and if I had summers off with my kids (but they will both be in high school next year, so it's not that important any more).

I've thought about this before - what would I do if I left this job? I honestly can't think of anything. Perhaps be a child psychologist or social workers, but I'm not sure I have the fortitude to do that - I'm pretty wimpy when it comes to kids in bad situations - I would want to adopt all of them or get very personally involved. So I save those dreams for volunteering I do - it gives me enough, but if I find myself getting too emotionally involved I can take a step back.

I would love to be a forensic scientist. I am fascinated by all of the technology and investigation to solve murders and other crimes. I love true forensic science shows.........not the fake shows like CSI.

Other than this, I want to be the taster of cute drinks with umbrellas. You know, maybe figure out which ones stay cold the longest while lounging in the sun on a nice sandy beach.

Personal Shopper

I love shopping and I don't care if I'm at the grocery store or Dollar General I could shop all day every day.

My friends and family thing I should do it for people...I just don't know how to go about getting the word out.

I could also run errands for people to. I love being out and about so if I need to pick up your cleaning or drop the dog at the groomer I could do it all.

I'm in my dream field fitness. I gave up a life-sucking career for it.

The only thing I would change is that I'd like to be a little more well known as a fitness educator and program designer. Not so well known that I travel too much, but so that my local trainings are consistently full and I have enough travel offers that I can pick and choose.

I had one of them already, did it for over 2 decades.

Current Dream Job? Tutor young kids with "math phobias, and dyscalculia." Too many people lose too many years, and too many dreams because of what is viewed as "one" subject and skill (when in reality it is many topics, and multiple skills). I want to "play" with them and watch them "light-up" when they "get" something that eluded them for so long.

My dream job is no job at all.

BUT the bills keep rolling in anyway, no matter what I think about it, so I'm a nurse. Sometimes I hate it and sometimes I love it, depends on which day you ask me and what's happened that day. It's stressful but obviously I love that or I wouldn't still be doing it.
