Jobs I Would Love to Have

Lulu loves strawberries, white wine and taking photos. She is currently attempting to maintain her sanity while planning a wedding and an international move.

I am not much of a career woman. I wish I was, but at 24 I am still without a "career"...I have had lots of mini careers (including events coordinator, writer for magazine, public servant & preschool teacher among others!) that have passed the time but I am still looking for the perfect career!!!

1. Translator- Despite the fact I speak two languages (oh how I wish it was more!) my written second language is crap. If it was better I could probably actually make money off of it. I am still working towards my next level of proficiency.
2. Photographer - No explanation necessary. I mean to get paid to take photos = awesomeness!
3. Bookstore owner- I have always wanted to work in a bookstore. But to own one would be so much better! Especially one with a cute, kitsch cafe attached! Not much need for an English bookstore where I am going though and what use would a bookstore with books I couldn`t read be?
4. Writer- My dream is to be a writer. Such a shame I am too lazy to edit my work or take the time to write more often. I do love it though so I do hope that one day the talent to do it will just come by and knock me on the head one day!
5. Stay at home mum- Some people (ie. career women!) would hate this but I like the idea. To supplement the fact that I stayed home with the kids I think running an Etsy business would be fun- just need to find a creative skill I have!

What careers have you had? What career do you want?

My jobs:
1. Receptionist at a mall main office (WOW, there are some WEIRD people who like to complain when benches get moved from their "usual" spot)
2. Chart girl in the OB/GYN dept of a hospital (You want to promote safe sex? Make college kids FILE PICTURES OF GENITAL WARTS. Eeeeeesh.)
3. Exam queen at a university (Putting exams online and wrangling professors into submitting them on time)
4. Exam queen/stay-at-home mom (Welcome to my life: full time mom and part-time employee-from-home!)

What job do I want? I've got it!

Ideal job? Artist! But do they pay us to do that?

Otherwise I'd also like to open a cafe which would double up as a small art gallery.

I agree with you :)
I really have a romantic image about the stay-at-home-mum: I'll have the most perfect garden and wear red shoes every day, yellow dresses, and bake the most delicious pies.
