What's Your Calling?

OK, I'm bored. Very few of the blogs I regularly visit have updated anything yet today. Not this one*, nor this one, nor this one, nor this one, nor this one, nor this one, nor this one, nor this one, nor this one, nor this one, nor this one, nor this one, nor this one, nor this one, nor this one, nor this one. What’s going on out there?!

This one has, though. And so has this one. So it’s not all bad.

And then there’s this one, for which I can never see a date. But I’m sure that’s my stupidity, not hers.

Please see the disclaimer below.**

So I got to wonderin’: What do you all do during the day? And then I got to wonderin’: What do you all wish you did during the day? I don’t mean ‘sleep-in a lot and eat junk food’ – I’m talking about what actual job you wish you had for a living.

So in the interests of public opinion***, I was hoping whoever reads this would please leave a comment below, stating:

a) Your actual job

b) Your dream job

What do you do from 9am to 5pm (or whatever your ‘regular’ work hours are)? And what legitimate job do you aspire to do?

If you’re fortunate enough to already have your dream job, kindly sod off. (Not really – good on you, I’d love to hear from you too.) But otherwise, let’s all naval-gaze and see how close (or otherwise) we are to getting to where we want to be with our occupations.

I’ll start:

a) Web editor

b) Writer, actor, film maker, copy editor.

And you?

* OK, while I was creating this post, this one was updated. But I’m not changing my links now. It took too long to set up!

**These ‘update status’ reports are likely to be inaccurate by the time you check them. But as I composed this post, this is how many had been updated.

*** ie. I just want to know.

a) work for the government*

b) I have no idea! I quite like aspects of my job and I couldn't work for someone whose ideals don't align with my own but I'm not all that ambitious when it comes to work. I'm more interested in making my life outside of work what I want it to be and pursue non-work interests**. I don't want my job to define my life.

* and I don't mean 'I am on the dole' though I have used that euphemism in the past when I have been recieving social security benefits

** craft, multimedia (in the craft not tachnological sense) art, design and sewing. That sorta thing.

My dream job is to be Editor in Chief of an independent magazine where I can print whatever I want and take risks and publish silly things just because I feel like it. Which is what I do for a living, but I still hate it most of the time.
