I worked a few jobs in my life. Some short term, some long. If I didn’t enjoy what I did, I didn’t do it very long. I did not go to college and had no skills. I worked in a few factories, cleaned homes, and when I was 19 I had a short stint working as a cocktail waitress in a club in the Florida Keys (fun).
I spent an hour in a massage parlor during that same time in the Keys. My first “client”, a large, sweaty, drunk man asked me if I was going to take my top off. I was told this would probably happen and I could do whatever I wanted. I thought to myself at the time, “I can do this”. Nope, I couldn’t! I abruptly quit.
I spent most of my “career” in clerical positions.
I am not working right now, and except for the fact that I don’t have any money coming in, I like it. My dream job would be something I enjoy doing and getting paid for it. I would work for myself and would not put a lot of pressure on me. I am good with people but don’t necessarily want to be around them. I love being outside and I love being physical. With those things in mind, I would say being a photographer of nature, architecture and all things outdoors would fit for my dream job.
I love to take pictures but don’t know a lot about photography. That could be a problem, so classes would be necessary. I think I have a pretty good eye and could make a living at it. This is all in my dream world though, as in reality, there are too many out there taking pictures with a good eye not making enough money.
