So what's your dream job?
Sorry, I just couldn't resist one more list. When you get to the bottom, you'll see why I chose it.
A recent survey of 2,000 people in the United Kingdom showed some surprising results when they were asked to tell what their dream job would be. Here are their Top Ten. I thought many of the choices were surprising, astounding really. What do you think?
Number Ten: Musician
Seems like the dream of 'making it big' that many people had as a teenager, has carried on into their adult life.
Number Nine: Restaurant Owner
I love to eat out whenever I get a chance, but I couldn't imagine the stress and strain of owning and running a restaurant.
Number Eight: Movie Director
This seems like such a strange choice for a dream job. Maybe people felt it was a way to meet famous stars.
Number Seven: Physiotherapist
Okay, this one is downright weird. I can't imagine choosing this as a dream job. Getting to put your hands on people? I just don't know.
Number Six: Police Officer
Gun, uniform, tight breeches, leather perhaps. I know people would choose it for the 'serve and protect' part.
Number Five: Photographer
Another list had Playboy photographer as a top choice. Again, maybe people look at this profession as a way to meet people, famous or otherwise.
Number Four: Paramedic
I can't imagine a more stressful profession. Every call would be an emergency. Definitely not for me, but I'm sure glad they're out there.
Number Three: Landscape Gardener
You have to remember the survey was done in the United Kingdom where almost everyone has some sort of garden.
Number Two: Teacher
I did this for thirty years. I loved working with children, but it's certainly a demanding job. Although I loved teaching, I'm not sure I'd say it was my dream job. P.S. You know that's not a photo of me, don't you?
Number One and the whole reason I posted the list: WRITER
Yes, the number one dream job of the 2,000 people polled was- a writer. Now that I can agree with. Every day when I sit at my computer, I think how lucky I am to be able to spend my days and, sometimes, my nights writing. It most certainly is a Dream Job. (Ignore the picture. That never happens.)
Thanks to The Occupational Adventure for this list.
