    So, what are two or three dream jobs you'd like to have?

    I've always wanted to be a comedy writer, produce/direct a documentary, and work for a think tank. Of course, none of these would ever come to fruition. oh well.

    My ultimate dream job would be a traveler. I would visit various parts of the world to explore different cultures, meet unique people, and write and make art about my experiences. I will probably never be able to do this for many reasons.

    Something a bit more realistic is an educator/writer/artist. Working within an organization or public institution in developing curriculum, instructional and communications media while having the spare time to pursue art would be ideal.

    I don't know if these are things people wouldn't expect me to pursue, but they are my "dream" jobs, at least for the time being.

    some kind of artist; most ideal would be a mangaka, or game artist. I haven't been playing games for quite a long time but I'm still interested in game design...and only design. >_>; not the 3d, not the physics. :p

    I don't know anything else I'd dream to do. Man, I'm quite depressive in this aspect. D:

    An unlikely dream job of mine would be a stay at home dad.
    I would never do it though. I wouldn't feel right about it. That's culture for you, I guess. Though I know I'd be good at it and love it.


    Another one would be a Secret Agent.

    I would love to be a food critic.

    I also thought Flava Flave had a pretty cool job.. I would love to be paid to be a Hype guy.

    Oh, I have a few dream jobs. Technically, they're not really all that out of reach, if only my self discipline were as colossal as my ambitions...

    Crown Attorney (that's more or less a District Attorney to you U.S. folks)
    Governor General
    Judge
    A Prison/Mental Hospital Psychiatrist
    Forensic Psychiatrist or a Criminal Profiler
    Detective

    Edit: ... I just realized that "Best Selling Author" didn't even make my list. Huh.

    That too :p
    But I'd find those jobs interesting too.

    By the way, you can spy on me anytime.. In fact, I'm going to shower in 10 minutes ;)

    In order of preference:
    1. Writer (novelist).
    2. Writer (magazines and stuff).
    3. Voice actor (XD so random).

    (A possible extra one: character designer for games or something like that ^^")

    Yeah, I'd really like to write. I find it soothing. But I'm planning on working in the translation of books from Japanese to English and vice versa. Probably also in a publishing company.
    Darn my realism, making me think of alternatives to my dreams D:

    Just three, eh? Well I shall try to keep the list short.

    Opera Singer - This has been my dream job since I was a really little kid. I would absolutely love to sing at the Metropolitan Opera or La Scala. I know turning something I love so much in to a job could potentially back fire, but it still sounds amazing.

    Record Executive - I would love to run or own my own record label. I have had the idea of starting my own independent label stuck in the back of my head for years now. I will probably never do it, but I would love it!

    Politician - Running for public office is something I have day dreamed about since I was in middle school. Sadly, I don't believe this will ever happen. I would probably be better working on someone's campaign, behind the scenes.

    Those are the top three then there's a writer, an attorney, pin up girl, burlesque dancer, anthropologist, model, and a journalist (likely a music critic).
