It's mostly older folks with old computers around there. I have good patience when it comes to learning someone's style and educating them in basic computer function.

    It's a romantic notion. I don't know if I would truly enjoy that kind of work because I've never done it, but it's been a dream of mine since I was very little and darted in to grab eggs from underneath my grandparents' chickens. I would be incredibly depressed if their property ever left the family.
    I love the woods, too. My family comes from very close to this place...

I only say "magically met" because when I daydream of possibilities, her care always stands in front of anything I might dream up, and if I assume I have all she needs, I can let my daydreams fly.

    So - what would it be in a perfect situation? My guess is that many will answer in the direction of the arts...

    I'll go first...
    I love this question! I would create. The only times in my life I feel truly in line with my purpose is when I'm painting, writing, or re-purposing. I'm trying to do more of it lately. Creativity really is my joy. I would also like for this job to afford me things like travel to Europe and more time with my husband and kids.

    I agree with this 100%. Other things can be fun, but playing music or building things is what makes me truly feel fulfilled.

    I am a financial advisor and I really do enjoy my job I get to meet new people and help them meet their financial goals so they can pursue their dreams. Eventually when I retire I hope to move to a small ocean front home in ecuador where i have my own garden full of fresh fruits and veggies and my hubby catches fresh fish as needed.

    I would be a tenured professor in physics and computer science, spending all my time on research into neuromorphic computer system design, artificial intelligence, neural networks, and brain-computer interfaces.

    In my spare time I would work as a travel writer/photographer around the more remote and exotic places of the world. And do some freelance drawings/digital art on the side.

    I am working towards the first of these dreams now!

    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.
