#Blogtober14 Day 2...What is My Dream Job Past and Present
So I am joining up with Helene over at Helene In Between and Taylor over at The Daily Tay for October Blog Every Day event. So Please stop by one of their links or both and join in on the fun. Don’t forget to visit other bloggers and leave some blog loving.
So the prompt for this 2nd day of October is "What is Your Dream Job when you were young and what is it now".
I remember when I was little I wanted to be a lawyer. I don't know if that is because I wanted to help people or just because I wanted to make sure that people didn't get away with stuff. Yes I know it is a weird Dream Job. So I continued to help people all of my life and even went to college for Paralegal Studies and have an Associates. Then I realized when I went to court over an accident that I was a victim in that I was terrified of judges. Who would have thought that considering I always wanted to be a lawyer.
Now where this fear came from I have no clue. I have never been in trouble, except for 2 speeding tickets, so my fear isn't warranted. I have always handled all of my legal issues in regards to my kids and divorce without an attorney and always won. Hell I have been offered a job 6 times by the County Attorney's office here for Child Support. I mean seriously why pay a lawyer for something I can do myself. As long as you have a law library in your town or city then you can look up anything there is to look up for a defense, rebuttal or reference and the clerks are always willing to help.
I remember one time I had to take my ex back to court to get custody of my son from him when he agreed to take him while I was taking care of my dying mother. Man was that a disaster on his part. He thought he would walk in the court room and say a bunch of B.S. about me and the whole situation and when it came my turn to speak the judge immediately ripped him a new ass. It was hilarious and sad at the same time. But I told him when I meet him that he better never mess with me or my kids because he would regret it. He has learned his lesson needless to say.
So my dream job now? Hmmm that is a bit harder for me to figure out. I have been in Accounting for over 16 yrs now and I absolutely hate it. But it is a job that I am good at and it pays well. I think my dream job would be a photographer. I love photography and I take some pretty decent photos but I want to be phenomenal at photography. I want to be published in magazines and people say WOW at my photos. I do have some amazing photos from various trips I have taken that I have been told by numerous people that they should be printed and mounted on my wall or that I should sell them online. But I just haven't really had the chance to sit down and do that.
I work full-time and I also Sell AVON which I love and hope to eventually make a full-time career at it because that would give me the opportunity to pursue my dream of being a photographer. I know that with AVON you can work your own hours, as much or as little, whenever and wherever you want to work and you can earn as much or as little as you want. AVON has changed the lives of so many people and we have several Multi-Million Dollar AVON Representatives in the U.S. alone. So they are doing something right.
So I guess you could say that I went from wanting to help people to wanting to observe and capture (get it)people with Photography while becoming a Full-Time AVON Representative that will be helping people with all of their beauty needs.
So What is your dream job? Did you accomplish it or still working on it? How did it change over the years?
