If you weren't a nurse, what would you have become? - page 2

For some reason I was thinking about Spinal Tap, at the end, when the guy says he would sell hats if he wasn't a musician. So if you weren't a nurse, what would you have become? If I was being... Read More

    I would like to be a social worker. I know it can be just as stressful, however, it seems very interesting and diverse. But, my true passion is dogs. I would love to be a dog trainer. I can't think of anything better than being surrounded by dogs all day, lol.

    #1 Every time I see those guys on the travel channel that get paid to travel the world and document it, I know,, that's what I would rather be doing than anything else. I guess that's whimsical coz it will never happen.

    #2 Which I am really, seriously, but not too carefully considering. Save up a bunch of $ by doing double for a year then give it all up and go to some remote beach locale and open up a bar with some food bar offerings. And maybe a small guest house/hostel.
    I could invite all my fellow stressed out AN members to visit for a week and decompress.

    I would be a flight attendant! Or a travel agent. Or maybe a flight attendant until I was older or wanted to settle down, then use my experience to be a travel agent.
    But, since I'm just now finishing my nursing degree, I'll just have to settle with travel nursing!
    ...after getting 1-2 years of experience that is.

    Realistically: Teacher or flight attendant

    Whimsically: Olympian or fashion designer

    What I really want is for someone to pay me to stay home in my pjs all day, but I haven't found anyone who is willing yet.
    I did that for 2.5 years and made more money than I ever have in any of my other working years. It's called being a freelance copywriter. Jammies, in my home office, four hours a day, if even that. Then, my contract got terminated. Oh, well. All good things come to an end, don't they?

    I can't imagine what I would do otherwise because this is my "what would you do if you weren't a..." job. Second career person here.

    Maybe a teacher, which was my second choice when I decided to change paths.

    For realsies, librarian, mortician or high school English or History teacher. All I considered at one point (and fantasize about now after a really bad day), and still would if I had enough money to do nothing but go to school for several more years.

    For fun? I was totally going to be a rock star when I was a teenager, and I'd like to think that if my crippling stage fright hadn't nipped that idea in the bud, I would have been great.

    It sounds so cool though.lol

    At some point, I'm hoping to reach a point where I can work and live off a Part time schedule as a Nurse and be able to spend my other days doing other things to self-develop.

    If I hadn't suddenly decided to join military long ago, I would've become a computer animator. Sometimes I still dream of working in Pixar...

    If I hadn't later decided to go back to nursing, I would've been working in a biochem lab...

    But, I don't think I would've been very happy with either scenario as I am now.
