Inspired by @ClaireAmada . Alternative careers that I think I could have had the potential to be good at, but I never followed through on these interests because of naivety in undergrad or fear; and later in my 20s, due to sunken costs into my current career/work field.
- •Interior DesignerI just follow the pretty blogs instead
- •Graphic DesignerI volunteer as the VP of Marketing and communications for graduate professional counsel to get this need satisfied.
- •HistorianI was really great at memorizing historical details for large swaths of Chinese and Russian communist history and undergraduate university. At the time I was just happy to pass those final exams; but now I think maybe I could've use that account elsewhere? I do have a love of British royal history for the Tudors age and war of the roses, as well as the Victorian era... oh well perhaps in an alternative universe, another life…
- •Some organizational position in movies or television. I really love storytelling in these two mediums, but perhaps it's just better left for my entertainment purposes?I also have a knack for memorizing storylines for interesting characters over many, many seasons.
