Jobs

If you had to work, what would you do? In my imaginary world, you have to work 40 hours a week, out of the home. You get good benefits, good pay, child care is not a concern, you choose your perfect schedule. You will be physically able to do whatever job you choose, and any required education would instantly snap into your head.

Re: Jobs

i really love the job i have now. i'm a manager so i choose my set schedule (i work my 40 hours in 52 hours so i get 4.5 days off every week) and i run the house. i get 8 paid holidays a year. sick time, 2 weeks paid vacation.

i work in a 2 person home with 2 ladies who are autistic. it's a very rewarding job and i never think of it like work, to me it's just a second home. i honestly cant imagine doing anything else i only wish i made more than $9.50 an hour.

Well, I am really a special education teacher. If money were no object however, I would run a surf camp with my DH.

Id love to deal in antiques and mid century modern furniture, and consulting for people who are trying do period appropriate renovations to older homes.

Re: Jobs

I would be a profession photographer.

Although, if we could go way out there- my hsband and I would seriously love to own a farm. Be self-sustained...and be a safe haven for young s*x trafficked children.

Re: Jobs

I'm a special fx make up artist in film/tv. I love the job and Ive been doing it for 12 years. Now if I could change it, I might reduce the hours down, but other than that I can't imagine doing much else in my life.
