There are two times of the year that I crave the new - more than I usually do at other times of the year. One is the New Year, because duh. The other is when school starts in September. I think this may be because I am a sucker for school supplies, but also because there is that possibility of becoming what you want, taking a new direction. I'm done with school [way done], but I still get kind of daydreamy about starting a new career. Here's what I'd be if I had the option:
Architect. I am no mathematical or spatial genius [I continue to bump into walls and doorways that have existed in their present places ALL MY LIFE], but I love the idea of creating a space. Particularly when I am faced with the ridiculous lack of closets and odd floorplans in real life homes.
Meteorologist. Growing up, I had no idea this was a real thing, but if only I had! I love the weather. Love it. I could watch The Weather Channel for HOURS and I know which weather person on which local channel will give me the straight dope on what's coming our way. To be part of that magic? I want in.
Dictator. Benevolent, to be sure, but I would be awesome with unlimited power. Trains would run on time. Trash would be picked up. I'd have a palace. Sure, there would be uprisings and intrigue and probable assassination, but I think it might be worth the trade off of having EVERYONE and EVERYTHING at my beck and call.
Thinking of a new career? Which one?
