I had a thought a little while back and wanted to share. I am currently kinda out of school kinda not, it's complicated. So, as of now I am going over some of my options and just found some part time fundraising job that I will be having an interview with the PR woman on Monday. Very excited.
Now, when I was younger I went through phases; what did I want to do when I was all grown up...? My dream job, as others will call it. I thought I really enjoyed photography, but lost interest after a few years, then writing was on my mind...didn't seem to make any money so I scratched that and made it a hobby. Throughout college I wanted to do law but after working for a law firm I decided not to go through law school (I would recommend that you intern at a place before making any big decisions.)
In any case, I am really at a loss right now. My so called dream job is very up in the air right now and I am not sure if a "dream job" even exists. There are so many things that I want to do that I would consider making a life out of but I don't have one thing that I really want to do that overrules everything else. I think I would be happy just having a regular job that gives me the freedom to do my hobbies on the side, but in America that doesn't seem ambitious enough lol
so my question...
to those who have their dream job...was this what you wanted when you were younger and you achieved it or did it just fall into your lap and you decided that you really enjoy it.
to this of you who have a dream job in mind, how do you think having that dream job would really affect your general happiness. Do you think that if you had another job, you could be just as happy or would you not be satisfied without that particular job?
