    If I only knew then what I know now: prosthetics/orthotics

    If I was 25 years younger: neurobiologist, geneticist, virologist, microbiologist, research psychologist.....yeah...love sciences

    Big dream: own a bar/hostel/rv park on a beach somewhere in Central America.
    Wow! Almost spot on alike! I LOVED my microbiology class and I would've also loved to have become a geneticist, virologist, microbiologist or research scientist.

    I have a talent for art/drawing/painting so the art world has never been far from my thoughts. Graphic designer or fashion designer would've been quite interesting!

    Editor, crime scene investigator, food critic, personal shopper. All of the above would be my dream job.

    But on a more serious note.. Photographer. Photography right now for me is just a hobby, but I would love to make it into a career or even just a side job one day.

    I'm currently writing three novels, and I have some articles published. So, I would be an author.

    #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 andgo 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.
    You'd need an awful big beach.

    If motivated, I'd have finished engineering, not liked it as a job, and gone to med school.

    Otherwise: Paramedic + RRT
