    Ya know, I'd like to be one of those people who watch Netflix all day and give feedback. I'm pretty sure that's a thing.

    I'd probably be a writer or doing something in music. I admit the pay is nice as a nurse though. And best thing is I can still be a writer or musician , especially since my nursing job pays the bills.

    I was a programmer for many years, then for multiple reasons, including being my mother's caregiver at the end, I did 'this crazy nursing thing'. Yeah, sometimes I have regrets, but sometimes I don't ... although this pays less, it's often more rewarding. I didn't say perfect at all, just more rewarding.

    But on another note, I should've been an artist & writer. Trying to get my *** moving to do more of both again. As an uncle of mine said once, 'Work gets in the way of other things sometimes'.

    I would absolutely be an airline pilot. I do fly, but getting paid to fly passengers around would be ideal. It'd be stressful for sure, but also fun.

    If I had it all to do over again, I'd a Funeral Director.

    I'm amazing at decorating things but I can't draw or do digital art worth a flip. I once tried to "draw" a sample for my husband for a project and he told me it looked like a 5 year old's art project. :'(

    If there's such a thing as being "meant" to do something, I'm "meant" to be an archaeologist. I can't imagine anything making me happier, and I still plan on pursuing it at some point. I enjoy nursing and all of the versatility that the field brings, but it was definitely pushed by my family as a steady employment/income/grown-up job.

    I would become a pastry chef. And hopefully be a famous pastry chef! Oh well, maybe the next life!

    Animal shelter worker or if I didn't need to be paid (since it's volunteer) therapy dog handler. I love the joy that it brings the patient's when a therapy dog comes to visit, not to mention all the benefits to the patient's health that therapy dogs can bring. If there's a way to successfully incorporate that dream with a nursing career, and making an income, I would like to pursue that while still being a nurse. I'm open to suggestions! :-)
