Top Five coolest jobs ever that I wish I had thought to do…

Fives 4 Comments

What are the top five careers you would want?  Not to include your current job.  I don’t mean what else did you want to be growing up, but what are some awesome jobs that you wish you had thought of.

5) Zoo/aquarium animal caretaker – when i was in Brisbane Australia, we went to see Steve Irwin’s zoo.  There were a couple of trainers playing with baby tigers (kittens?).  Thats a job that would be awesome!

4) Mythbuster – I would give anything to be on that show!

3) National Geographic photographer – I’ve always liked photography and travel.  Maybe if i worked for them i could go to Antarctica and play with the Penguins!

2) Navy Seal – They get all sorts of cool toys!  I wanted to be one for awhile, but i’m neither male nor buff.

1) Fighter pilot – This was my older brother’s dream, and I didn’t want to copy him, but now i kinda wish i did.  I don’t know if i have the stomach for it though.

    5)Gymnast…my mom told me I used to run and jump around like crazy when I was a kid. She considered putting me in gymnastics class. Its a shame she didn’t, because the sport looks fun and I wouldn’t have to take pills to make myself the right height haha
    4)Irish Step Dancer..I have a thing for Michael Flatley. No only kidding, they’re just awesome.
    3)Figure Skating…Scott Hamilton can do a back flip on the ice! Impressive stuff.
    2)Broadway performer…now all I have to do is get better at singing and um, get comfortable singing solo; aka you should see me in “Hairspray” by May
    1)Author…ok, maybe not considered a necessarily “cool” job, but I think it would be amazing to see your name and work in print. Hmm…maybe someday 🙂

    5) TechTV Host – When I finally got this channel I realized I knew everything they would talk about on Call for Help and The Screen Savers. If I would have had the channel a little sooner I think I may have had to move to San Francisco and give it a shot.

    4) Morning Radio Show Host – This is a recent one. I’ve realized that a lot of the topics I discuss later come up on the radio. I’ve talked about this in this post.

    3) Lead Singer of a Punk Band – I can’t imagine anything being more fun. At a great show, the energy of being in the crowd is unbelievable, how amazing must it be to be the source of that.

    2) Stand-Up Comic – Really all I need is the material. I’m not scared of being on stage and I think my delivery would be solid.

    1) Sports Broadcaster – I thought this was it, until I had physics in High School. This is what I’ve been told I should be since I was little. I love sports and remember the smallest pointless stats.

    In no real particular order, and I might be breaking the rules, because, some of these I did consider doing…

    5) Chef – You get paid to make a mess and have someone else clean it up!
    4) Talk Show Host – Who doesn’t like the sound of their own voice?
    3) Newspaper Editor – I like to read, I like to complain, and I’m fairly opinionated.
    2) Pilot
    1) Foreign Tour guide, like for tour groups.

    I retract one of my earlier entries…
    I’d like to replace editor with
    How sweet would that be?
    You listen to everyones cracked out ink-blot interpretations, and get paid to judge crazy people.
    I would also accept an entry level position as Polygraph-Administrator. Ha, what’s that smell? Did you fart? “No” LIAR!!!!
