I love my job as a librarian for so many reasons. But If I didn't have to worry about money or time or market need or general aptitude, here are some other things I might do.
  1. Astronomer
    Giphy
    I've always loved space and stargazing. I love the idea of humans going out into space to explore, but until then it would be rad to explore it from earth.
  2. Astronaut
    Giphy
    Along the same lines. Sometimes I get this claustrophobic feeling thinking about how people are trapped on this rock, but mostly I attribute it to an extreme case of wanderlust.
  3. Travel Writer
    Giphy
    I used to read travel magazines a lot as a teenager and dream about getting paid to visit all those cool places. I still read travel guides from the library and visit lonely planet to plan trips I may never take.
  4. Novel Writer
    Giphy
    I'm in the middle of writing my first novel, but I've been in the middle of doing that for a long time. It would be nice to finish something and be published.
  5. Television Writer
    Giphy
    I went so far as to major art, concentration in screenwriting, for my undergrad degree. I've written a lot of tv pilots and even written episodes of my favorite shows for kicks.
  6. Graphic Designer
    Giphy
    I took a lot of courses for my art degree that were graphic design-ish. I think it would be a fun job to create the designs used for brands and companies. Or even just cute t-shirt designs for theadless.
  7. Engineer
    Giphy
    This is kind of vague, but I like putting things together. I think that's what drew me to art in the first place. In a different life, it would have been interesting to pursue engineering. I've always struggled with math, but I think I would have enjoyed this career.
