And while I don't plan on switching careers anytime soon (if ever), sometimes I think about what other career sounds fun. I mean, really, am I the only one that does this??
I dream about being CEO in a large company, making six figures, working no weekends or holidays, and having little stress.
I dream about being an awesome realtor, flipping real estate like nobody's business, and making millions.
I dream about only working 3 months a year and having a six figure check at the end of it (haven't quite figured out what job that is exactly... except maybe becoming a Kardashian).
Now I'm sure these dream jobs probably aren't as dreamy as they seem, but I don't really need to know that do I?
But after dreaming all my dreams, I have figured out my true calling and that is a,
Seriously, what could be better than getting paid to talk?
They always seem to have the best stories, and are up on the latest surveys and fun facts.
They get to laugh really obnoxiously (of course I would never do that), and try to guess what they think might be interesting to their listeners.
As an added bonus, if you're on the morning gig then you get up while it's still dark but then probably get outta there by 1pm... Right?
The job sounds great, but I am definitely realistic about this job and have a couple fears.
(that's my fear face in case you were wondering)
Fear #1 there is a slight possibility (like less than 0.000001% I'm sure) that my laugh might be one of those laughs that causes people to switch the station immediately
Fear #2 I may forget that the top 10 reasons you should have a regular bowel movement isn't appropriate for radio talk
Fear #3 And the last reason, but the most terrifying of them all is... I have a slightly deeper voice for a girl so would I be one of those DJs that people debate on whether they're a man or a woman?
You know the type- you can't figure out if they're a manly girl or a girly man, and then if they have a gender neutral name like Aaron/Erin then you're really in trouble.
Thankfully my name isn't gender neutral so people should figure it out... Eventually.
Despite my fears, I think I would be a great radio DJ. I don't think my Bachelor's Degree in Nursing will help me much, but I have a lot of experience talking, so that'll count for something... right?
What is your dream career? I'd love to hear!
