I’m a perpetual day dreamer. I don’t consider it a bad thing since it has gotten me through some pretty rough times in my life. For instance, the horrible job I had held during the summers during college. While I packed box after box of school supplies I dreamt of the fabulous places I would visit or lucrative businesses I would start. We were not allowed to listen to music or really talk to each other while we worked so day dreaming was as good as it got for me.
I have a few favorite day dreams; what would I do if I won the lottery, where would my dream vacation be, or how I would spend my last day on earth. Today I’ve been thinking a lot about what my dream job would be.
Before I go on I should mention that I’m living my dream life right now; lots of laundry, getting “super-flied” by a small child as I walk past the couch, and watching my little angels as they shriek at each other while fighting over who gets the inflatable Spongebob chair. It’s a beautiful life.
Today I thought I would share with you what I think would be some wonderful careers and who knows, I just might surprise you with my choices. Keep in mind I didn’t choose these careers for their monetary value, I chose them purely for the fun or reward of doing them.
The first dream job on my list is to be a stunt driver. I love the car commercials or tv shows where the cars are sliding all over the pavement or racing up a winding mountain road. It seems to me that those drivers are getting a pure adrenaline rush and having a lot of fun.
The second dream job on my list is hosting a travel show. “Today on Kristen’s Travelogue I’ll be giving you a personal tour of the Greek Isles.” Or “Join us next week as we head to the Australian Outback.” Need I say more?
The third job would be working as a buyer for Godiva Chocolates. I’m sure I would need to travel to all corners of the globe searching for the perfect cacao bean. It would be hard but I would be willing to sacrifice my taste buds in order to bring Godiva the perfect chocolate.
Now don’t worry, I’m not totally shallow. My fourth job would be as an angel of mercy traveling throughout third world countries helping the underprivileged. I’m not sure what I would do exactly; finding cures for massive epidemics, discovering ways to irrigate small dry villages with ease, or helping downtrodden women of the world shake off the chains of oppression.
So there you have it; Kristen’s dream jobs, at least for today. Now I’m wondering what your dream job would be.
