Dream Jobs

What job would you do if money, connections and skill set were no obstacle? I have often wondered about this. I have done personality tests over the years, and they all seem to point me in a creative direction. So the jobs I would pick that would be very cool to have are:

Concert Creative Director
As fans of this blog know, I am a big music fan. I have seen some amazing shows in my years of sitting in the Cheap Seats. All of the different stage sets, with moving platforms, all the costumes, dancers and choreography. Add in the lighting, smoke and strobe effects, plus large video screens too. It would be awesome to put something like that together.

Fashion Designer
I have learned that my creativity is not limited to one area. I have never tried to design clothes, but it looks like it would be fun. I love watching “Project Runway” and how ideas proceed to execution. I would probably specialize in men’s clothes. Fashionable and funky — not something you would see on the average guy — but something different.

I am also a big fan of the movies and TV. To have the ability to play people so far removed from yourself and be believable in those parts, is a skill. Back in the day, it would have been cool to be on “90210” — now I think I would be the gay best friend in some romantic comedy movie.

Wedding Planner
I have always been an organized person, in addition to be creative. I am the type of person who likes to plan things too — from vacations to parties. So imagine helping a happy couple bring their vision to life… I think it would be a fun job. Stressful for sure, but ultimately fulfilling.

To be able to dance like a pro would be an awesome job. To entertain, and move people with your body. I am sure it is very thrilling. It would cool to be a lead dancer on a big tour like Madonna’s. Or to choreograph a big routine in the next “Step Up” movie.

To shoot the Undergear catalog or some erotic coffee table book featuring barely dressed and fit male models, sounds like fun to me. Having the models make love to the camera for a few minutes, as I snap away.

So that’s my list… what would your dream job be? I would love to hear from you.

    Oops, Daniel! My “masquerade is getting older”, as Madonna sings and I am still trying to find my own road…but your list is very good. I graduated in English but because of my Attention Deficit Disorder, I quit the idea. Well, I graduated but I am not allowed to teach in a classroom….I tried the Tourism industry as a tour guide but it was not my thing. But I think I would love living abroad for a while, in a job that would require me to speak English….maybe a receptionist or something like that. Or maybe a person that deals with protocols….receiving and sending stuff. I enjoy the idea of dancing a lot. My mother always says that I should go to a place and find a group that could do it together….I am always dancing in my bedroom….and sweating a lot when I finish it…Certainly the ideas you had are very good. Concert Creative Director? Wow! Great….Wedding planner, I think I would be a disaster…I am not so good to organize big events. But your list is very interesting….
