    Veterinarian ...but without all that "school" stuff. And I'd only want to see healthy animals, because sick and injured animals make me sad.

    Something NOT direct patient care! Possibly a biostatistican or biomedical engineer.

    Occuaptional therapist was my original choice.

    Without regard to pay and prerequisites and all that other stuff, my dream job is travel writer. I've always loved writing. Alas, with kids and a spouse and bills, I need more steady income.

    Now? Maybe pharmacist or optometrist. Good hours, respect/prestige, and great pay.

    Front desk clerk at a hotel I have worked at a department store, at 2 schools, at 2 diners, at a pizza place, and at Starbucks. When I worked Starbucks I smelled like coffee all the time, and you couldn't get the smell out of your hair/skin.
