#BEDM Dream Job

May 21, 2013 3 Comments

When I was little I wanted to be a marine biologist. Mostly because I thought it would mean I’d get to spend all my time dossing about on boats, but I didn’t realise that it meant I’d have to be good at science. And I’m not. Science defeats me. Then I wanted to write novels. And then be a journalist. And then I started working in marketing and found this world of digital marketing and fell in love. And I love my current job, I’m just not such a fan of the commute! 


But when I think about dream jobs, my mind drifts. 
It starts me thinking of ways of keeping me in the mountains. At the end of our last trip to Morzine we spent an afternoon drinking and figuring out a way to buy a chalet and stay, unfortunately the four of us don’t have the money to make this dream a reality – but we sure had the ideas and the drive! We also had between us, a silly amount of transferable skill – but until we get the lottery win I’m not sure we can make it a reality. 


Or of ways that I can turn all the little business ideas that float in and out of my head into realitites. I have the plans and I almost have all the skill needed, I think, to make a go of it – but mostly I don’t have the time right now. Which makes me sad. 


Does anyone else find that having a day job REALLY gets in the way of the dream job?

    Haha yes, yes it does. Money, time and the real day job get in the way of most things I think 🙂

      If only there was a way to be able to do everything you wanted with out needing the day job. I'm off to buy a scratch card and see if I can win the lottery 😉

    Yes, it definitely does! My husband experiences this on a daily basis. He goes to a job he isn't thrilled about, but is working towards his dream job. He always says he wishes he didn't have to work so he could stay home and study. But, in order for him to be able to do that studying he has to work. Ugh.
