    Claims adjuster. Lol, the Office organizer will understand.

    Music critic. I'm working my way through the '90's discography, and just discovered I find Kurt Cobain and Nirvana to be tiresome.

    Photographer. But I'm doing it now,and it's not as cool as being a claims adjuster.

    I can understand this one. :)

    I would actually just love to be paid for all the stuff I do for skating (administration and judging). I would be a very rich woman if I did.

    Professional video gamer. There are people who make a living playing Call of Duty. That sounds so fun to me!! Or a video game tester. Basically anything to do with video games. :)

    I don't really know what would be my dream. But I certainly know what would be nightmare.

    This. To me it's "the reason I left my masters in physics". The thought of an academic job. :yikes: I love teaching though :) Even my desperate to pass high schoolers.

    To me it would somethig like a travel channel presenter, gets paid to saty in best hotels of the world and do some fabulous activities.

    We should go on business together. ;)
    When I worked on a lab during physics life, Id spend at least a day per month organizing me mess, labeling materials, organizing computer files and logbooks. Then I left physics and decided that I didn't want it all to go to waste, so I took on enginnering. I didn't want to suffer mathematically anymore, so I went on to production/industrial engineering, without knowing much about it.

    Guess what they teach you there? Scientific ways to organize everything. :)
    I'm seriously considering opening a consulting business as an organizer.

    LOL. Nooooooo! I'd have to buy a new wardrobe in larger sizes. My backup job always used to be postman because you are getting paid to exercise. Since the implosion of the postal service though, I have to come up with a new plan. Though I think any dream job for me would have to be part of being a team. I usually find that work much more fun than "isolationary" jobs.

    Thought of a few more ideas:

    Winery tour guide (or winery owner)
    Sports/hobby store worker (making a career out of your own hobby - e.g. scuba, cycling, outdoor adventure)
    Historic/scenic railroad engineer (doesn't every little boy want to drive a train!)
    Race car driver
    Ski instructor (or other ski resort worker)
    Boat operator for fishing trips

    Molecular biologist. Or marine biologist. It is very far from what I do, and I cannot be a scientist in this life. I find it fascinating though.
    Also, a sea captain on an exploring or scientific mission. Or first mate. Or second :lol:

    Aside from the "my mistakes die" aspect, my dream job would be to be a general gractitioner/physician. Or perhaps, an infectious disease specialist or epidemiologist. As it is, I just enjoy reading the textbooks and not killing patients. :)

    Gemologist. Don't care about jewelry, but shiny rocks are pretty.

    Torrid novel writer.

    Channing Tatum's body hair remover.

    I think Ryan Gosling would be a better option.
