What's your dream job/career?

This is not someting I often talk about it because its a bit of a "roll your eyes" response from people at times. Since the age of about 5 I wanted to be an actor.
As a kid my cousins and I always used to put on musicals and productions for my family.
Did drama all through school, went to workshops and went to a summer school at Australia's leading drama school, NIDA, when I was a kid but well... I guess I realized it was a pipe dream and 99%of actors are out of work, so I went to uni and now have a career I don't like very much.
I still get the bug when I see a play or a great film. Ho Hum...
I'd never get past the auditions because I have a major fear of rejection.
I also still dream of being some sort of writer/photgrapher some day too.

What's your dream job and have you tried to chase it ever?

Probably a travel writer. I adore travelling and globe-trotting and I'm decent enough at writing apparently, but I don't have the guts to give it a go. *sigh* So, i'm working in Information Technology and finishing a degree in Finance.

Sula, you can do it! Dang girl, you're an inspriation. You should start your own travel consulting agency(but you do that already), at least you could get paid.
Maybe we should go work for Rick Steves???

This is usually where people laugh at me and call me an idealistic young fool. But anyway. My dream job would be to work for any organisation which works in the "developing" world. Why? Because I hate that 1,100 million people in this world don't have clean drinking water. I hate that 24,000 children die of starvation everyday. I hate that some countries have life expectancies of around 40 years. When people say 'there are enough resources in this world to meet everyone's need but not everyone's greed' - that's true. It doesn't have to be like this. We do not have to live in a world in which one section of the world becomes progressively richer as the rest of the world is left to suffer. So my dream job would anything which allowed me to play a tiny part in changing that. Whether it's working directly in countries where people need help, or whether it's working for an organisation which lobbies richer countries to take account of the needs of the "developing" world. Anything like that, that's my dream.

Novelist, and reviewer for the New York Times Book Review. But I'm probably not driven enough to be a novelist and most of the NYT reviewers are professors, I think. Oh, and what Sula said about being a travel writer applies to me too. Part of me would like to travel to risky and fascinating places and write superb travel books like those of William Dalrymple and Colin Thubron.

I wanna be a model- its not seriously demanding in the intelligence department but its great pay. And second I'd love to be a game designer because it is the total opposite of modeling and also because I love video games and could sit all day and design fantasy worlds...its really intriguing to think of the possibilities.
