“Greatest Female Entrepreneur of the Maritimes” !!! I would say “Greatest in Canada” – But dont like THAT much attention lol.

I’d love to become a successful fantasy writer—yes, not terribly exciting, but, there it is. On the nerdier side, however, what I’d really like to do is become (in whatever worlds these things are known) a famous museum curator—there are good exhibits, and there are great exhibits, and I’d really like to be able to make a few of the latter. Make of that what you will…

Stand up comedy. It’s something I’ve wanted to pursue but have always found reasons not to.

For being able to make an excellent living from my fine textile work. (This is what I would love to do, rather than what I actually do for a living.)

Unfortunately, the little voice of reason inside (which I’m probably more famous for) keeps me working at my day job rather than leaping into art for a living.

A successful writer. Probably fantasy, but maybe not.

@cprevite- word gets around quickly I see. I’ll have to bring them to the fluther convention.

Service to others, particularly the sick and dying OR having the most adorable grandkids in the world.

Photography. I know I already answered this one, but now I’m being serious

It’d be nice to have your work respect by your peers
and appreciated by the people that you create it for.
As an architect, that is.

But the idea of actually being famous for anything
kind of gives me the heebie-jeebs.

Nimis's avatar

But before any of that happens, I should probably finish spelling respected first. Oops.
