    I'm kind of doing it. I am a nurse practitioner, and totally love it. If I could change anything, it would be the restrictive way of practicing that is dictated by medicare (yup, our evil government), insurance companies and relulatory agencies. The beurocracy has a component of improving care in some ways, but has put SO MANY BARRIERS to care in many ways. I want to do what I do with more freedom.

    Ouch, that is interesting. I never thought about using it that way. I just use it when I want to pass the time, rather than playing some random app on my phone. Like workplace bathrooms

    For all you world travelers I would be the local guide at some point. Actually I've been doing that: meet you at point A and see you safely to point B, keeping you entertained with fairy stories and out of harms way (i.e. shoo away pickpockets who are after your bank card and passport). Now I took a translation job which has no season lows and highs. I like that too, no thoughts of changing.

    I'm sort of at the point where I am trying to figure out what my perfect job would be and...well...do it. I am currently a student and single, on the brink of graduation. I am interested in traveling and potentially teaching ESL, just as others on here have mentioned. I am currently in Spain, but have a giant list of place I want to go,and this feels like the right time to do it. Although I am quite a homebody, and struggle with not being settled anywhere. My dream job at the moment is to work in Ireland, but not much need for ESL there So my real dream job is sort of impossible, but I will figure something out I am sure. Maybe a company who needs help with US relations? Or at the US embassy? It sounds silly, but not knowing what your dream job is, is the hardest part of finding a job.

    I would probably work for you. I would be your most sought-after companion.

    Ahem... Had to look this one up. Guess I do live a sheltered life... Cannot imagine it at all, myself, but I did ask the question, didn't I?
    I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC

    I am another homesteader wannabe. Hubby could write his books and speak at Primal, Psychological and Anarchist conventions and I would indulge my unending curiosity about how to create things and spend a lot of time playing my guitar.
