What job do you most fantasize of doing?

Asked by mazingerz88 (21494points) May 28th, 2011

It flickers in your mind once in a while, the thought of you doing that job, wondering how fun that would be and the insane amount of money you could make. Or sometimes it’s not even about the money but a personal sense of fulfillment that maybe spiritual in nature, something that may soothe your soul? So what is that job?

I’d want to be a costumed crime fighter. I use this term and not “superhero” because I have no powers. Yet.

mazingerz88's avatar

@Joker94 Yes! Imagine if someone would in real life do what KickAss did. That would be truly awesome and bigger than any real big news out there.

Joker94's avatar

Oh, people do it, man. Not exactly to the extent that Kick-Ass did, but they do it :) Now, if there were a legitimate, balls-to-the-wall Kick-Ass out there, that’d be neat.

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard That’s a win situation either way. :)

Owning my own business. Over the years I have bounced between a cigar shop and a bakery, but I know that either would make me very happy. I spent years dreaming of a cigar shop full of leather furniture and wine racks, tall humidors. I would be equally thrilled to run my own bakery, I love the idea of putting on coffee and frying doughnuts before the sun comes up.

Blah. Maybe someday.

I’ve thought about this and this is not a frivolous answer. I’d travel the world and study cultures as a sexual anthropologist. I think that sex and the control of sex and cultural attitude toward sex has defined us as humans since the beginning of time. Ideally I’d like a TARDIS to do this.

Mine would totally be a make-up artist for scary movies, I went to cosmetology school for a minute and started doing everyones makeup for special occasions and stuff then it was Halloween makeup and I started getting really creative after awhile and just enjoy doing it, but I also love what I am doing right now….counseling.

@ANef_is_Enuf, cigar shop full of leather furniture, wine racks, and tall humidors?

Sweet christ, I think I love you.

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard I can’t tell if that is a business proposition or a heartfelt confession, but I’ll take it. ;)

No, seriously, it started about 11 years ago. I was this close to getting my dad to help me make it happen, and then a coffee shop/cigar shop opened up nearby and business was off the hook. It still does really well, and it kind of squashed my hopes of competing. I like to daydream about it, though.

ecstaticpancakes's avatar

@mooks6780 You could do make-up on the side. Who knows where that could lead you. Sounds fun!

mooks6780's avatar

@ecstaticpancakes I really wish I had the time, I work so much but when I get a chance to do it for special occasions & Halloween I have a blast. I get a kick out of seeing the persons face when they first see themselves and they are happy with the way they look. With my job I deal with women who have been through absolute horror and I make it a point to have make-up day & it really boosts them up. Having been a battered woman myself I know what it feels like when you think you are not beautiful. HeeHee Im just rambling on…

TexasDude's avatar

@ANef_is_Enuf it’s a little bit of both, I think.

ecstaticpancakes's avatar

@mooks6780 That’s ok. I think what you are doing is a good thing. Something definitely worth rambling about. =)

@ANef_is_Enuf Hibernate may be joking, but the jobs do pay good money. lol

A superstar singer or actress I don’t think I would like the reality of it but it makes for a good fantasy.

An old time explorer. If I could spend the rest of my days travelling around the globe, I’d be in my element. I’d like to be an actress too.

nailpolishfanatic's avatar

Being a successful beauty vlogger on Youtube, being a successful blogger, working in the fashion industry and working with recording cameras and stuff like that :)

Hibernate's avatar

I was not joking. And not for the money because I got enough money for a decent life.

I want them because it’s a good way of helping society .. take a look around and see how many garbage is ling on the grass / on the streets etc… People don’t pay attention to the garbage too much.

I live in a very clean city though when the non profit organization gather people as volunteers for gathering trash I always go.

I like and enjoy seeing the streets clean or the surroundings [ mountains / forests etc ] this because after a cookout people don’t always take the trash with them. Siigssh

Travel the world to buy antiques, direct a movie, go back to what I used to do, designing exhibits, become a world-class photojournalist, write something of value

jrpowell's avatar

Oh, and my achievable goal is to do high-end woodworking. I would like to have a place to make quality furniture out of real wood. I am tedious when it comes to woodworking, I wouldn’t be happy banging out cheap crap.

Jude's avatar

Being paid to travel the world.

Hunter-gatherer. The diet would be way more healthy than we eat now, there would be more fresh air and exercise, and I would feel like I’m not ruining things with every action I take. Plus, my making-things skills would have more real life, survival applications than they do now (as a hobby), and there would be more leisure time in which to pursue them.

Pied_Pfeffer's avatar

@anartist What type of architect? I’ve often fantasized about going into the field of designing homes for little people or those with a disability. I’d also be interested in being able to design homes that are sustainable and working with building contractors that are Earth-friendly.

muppetish's avatar

There are two that float around in my head on a regular basis.

The one that isn’t going to happen: becoming a muppeteer. I have never even held a puppet before.

The one that I am currently working on: becoming a professor / writer (specifically, I want to teach a class on children’s literature. It is by far my favourite genre.)

Berserker's avatar

@HungryGuy We should totally become villains and take over existence itself.

ucme's avatar

I don’t ever fantasise about this, but now that you mention it…. Hitler’s hairdresser may have offered fringe benefits. I’d have cut the fuckers nose off while trimming his iconic tache. Most likely a sackable offence, but worth it just for a laugh.

@noelleptc You could be my trophy wife. Then we could share him. :p

TexasDude's avatar

@augustlan I do think you claimed me first anyway. If I learned anything in kindergarten or my Sociology 110 class, it’s that sharing is caring, though.
