Even though I didn't participate in the prompt yesterday, I have been thinking about each of the prompts given by Helene and Tay. I mean when asked what you'll do with the winning lotto money, I had more questions than answers. Like how much money are we really talking about here and did I win it with my coworkers or all by myself? I should apologize in advance for the lack of pics in this especially since it's a throwback Thursday kind of post. I'll look into adding some in tonight when I get home.
As for today, I think everyone had multiple dream jobs as a child or at least I did. It changed depending on how successful I was at a certain thing, I think. When I was scouted at a music concert in 8th grade, I definitely thought I would be a singer. When I volunteered at the lower elementary school, I thought I would be a teacher. When I starred in multiple theater productions I thought I was destined to be an actress and when I was head cheerleader well I would definitely make it all the way to the pros.
As I actually tried some of these things in college I found out multiple things. I wasn't really fond of children, and you have to take a lot of tests as a teacher so that was out. I was a fat cheerleader in high school and while that was okay in my small town that wouldn't cut it in the pros. I was too young to persue a career in music at 13 and needed / wanted to finish out school like a normal kid. I finally found something I was good at and could major in at college - Graphic Design.
Still to this day, design is something I dream of doing but not as a typical designer. I worked at a design studio in college and while I loved the place I worked I also saw how competitive some of it was and that's definitely not me. I don't need my name printed in a book or magazine because it already is from working there. I just want to be making stuff for people that appreciate my skills and are willing to pay me to do it.
I launched HEA Ink Designs in the last couple weeks. Things have just kind of happened and when I made my 30 Before 30 list I didn't even have this on the horizon so I have a feeling something is going to be taking a back burner *cough* publishing a short story *cough*. Although, I have yet to do a book cover, so I'm anxiously waiting to see if I'll ever get that opportunity. All of the authors I know are publishing traditionally and don't need them from me. I may have to publish something just so I can do a book cover!
What's your dream job?
