I want to be professionally unemployed.

I'd never want to be a cop. Well... maybe like Denzel in Training Day. KING KONG AIN'T GOT NOTHING ON ME!

I think that's the line.

I wish I knew what I wanted to do and soon http://www.netphoria.org/wwwboard/frown.gif I definitely wouldn't mind being a housewife and a mommy for a little while.. Maybe start an at home business or something.

I'd like to and will try to make sound engineering and/or producing a career, but if that doesn't work out I'd like to be a teacher.

But I still get into 'fucked if I know' phases about this question, and it drives me nuts. People always tell me to do what my heart tells me to do, but my heart tells me to stay at home all day, accomplish nothing and jerk off and I have to tell it to shut the fuck up constantly.

Everytime someone asks me this question I take a second to really think about it and it always truly scares the shit out of me that I don't have any sort of solid answer. But then I forget than anyone ever asked and that I should be thinking about it. I think a lot about my options and whether or not I'd be happy in certain jobs, but "What do you WANT to do?" is the hardest to me.

I'd like to be an artist. A sculptor. Or a high school math or art teacher. But these careers are not a straight shot to a nice car, nice clothes, nice house and paid off student loans, so I'm holding out.

I guess, then, my answer is really Landscape Architect, Museum Director or attourney who helps women.

I am 22, I need to choose a direction SOON.

Well, I've never been quite sure, I guess I always figured I would wind up teaching, which I would love to do.

But a couple days ago I was driving home from a light hang that I worked at for a community theatre and I realized that I wanted to act. I've involved with theatre for several years and been moderately successful but I never ever considered doing it for life. So I think I want to act, career-wise.

I want to try and get as good as possible at playing guitar, singing, and songwriting, and write as much as possible (fiction, poetry, etc.), and work towards making some sort of income off of that, and in the meantime, do whatever I need to support myself. Seriously, though.

in Europe there is a rule that if enough farming is being done then any extra farms are PAID NOT TO FARM!!!! sounds kool as i would have a big farm for partys!!
other than that house-builder souns just fine as i already know how to cook and clean abd sew and dust and stuff. and with the net and tv i would be really easy to do the work and be able to talk to you people on the net and still watch my soaps!!
honestly i'd like to do something in psychology as i want to know how all your brains work!!!
