There's been a thread about each of our real jobs, but forget the real jobs... what about your dream job?? If salary, education, training, etc. weren't a consideration, what would you do?

I have two:
1) I would study languages all the time, it would be my full time job. Not to be a translator, but rather to understand how languages work and grow and change.
2) I would be a professional cyclist! Duh. :)

I'd be either an archaeologist or a writer for National Geographic, or BOTH.
I pretty much love what I'm starting to do now: throw together a bunch of stuff where I get to use what skills I've got (art, bookkeeping, organization) and learn new ones (accounting, bike repair, teaching). I just wish I could make enough money cobbling together this stuff to lose the one full time cubicle farm job I DONT like. But hey, at least I have all the slack time I need to do all kinds of extracurricular work while I bide my time in my cubicle...
Leah, become a professor and you could study languages all you want.

I'd be a photo journalist. Lots of traveling and no writing. Maybe there's writing involved. I don't really know. I just want to get paid for taking pics.
Own a doggie day care/bike shop. People drop off their dogs on their bikes on their way to work. Currently looking for investors...
I want to own a cake shop. Decorating cakes and delivering them via bicycle. Oh yeah! Anyone ever seen Ace of Cakes? That's where I want to work!!
Record store owner.
Haha, well it would have to occur in the present unfortunately, but I think the record store can survive the digital age..maybe. Did you work in Chicago, if so where?

I worked in a record store for about 5 years when you were but a wee lad.

Aside from the true dream jobs - astronaut (would take a trip off the planet no matter what the consequences -alien abduction or earth voyage - if given the opportunity) and nba player (no matter the role, bench rider or starter)

my dream job would have to be running a small brewery/bike co-op... they can easily run together with the large spaces needed for brew houses, and the two cultures fit perfectly, all bike and beer festivals have the same friendly atmosphere - partially pay the bike repair guys/gals w/ beer... promote cycling and good beer

think new belgium but way smaller and with on-site, community run, bike repair - i guess i picture lakefront brewery (milwaukee) merged with west town or working bikes - we'd repair, sell, and teach... no new bikes sold here... we'd have the best parties, festivals, and mass rides... we'd be a meeting place for mass rides or meeting places for the end of mass rides... we'd love you and you'd love us

any want to join me?
