Singer/Song writer (as in combined, not either or).
No thought required... if I had the voice, I'd be near killing myself to "make it".

Seriously, I would love to do work in protecting the endangered wildlife of the world and come up with ways to not only protect them but also provide enviroments for them to where they can thrive and live as God intended them to.

Have always wanted to get a college degree in (anything)before I'm 50. That would require going out into the world. so I've made arrangements that when I die my remains will go to a Medical School. I will not receive a degree but at least I will have gone to college.

For the longest time, I wanted to be in the Peace Corps. My high school guidance counselor told me I had to go to college and learn something useful (like agriculture of dam building) before I could do that. I thought being a good, kind willing person was being useful...I guess not.

I'd either like to be a musician or a video game programmer.. Not sure about the latter, but it would be rather fun to write the story and all of a video game, a playable story, right up my alley, and I love music and my guitar so there's my reason for the former.

Design homes with other people's money. LOL

Actually there's a lot of things I've wanted to do.


  • Feed the homeless
  • Be a doctor or nurse
  • Design (but instead of homes, now it's web pages) LOL
  • Teach

Well there's a lot I'd like to do. Like photography, design, psychology, art, theatre, etc., etc., etc. I think for the most part I'd like to be a musician. Maybe not the best ever, but to be able to write and make my own music and have it sound good would just be...beyond amazing. I'm working on it.  

I am no one if not myself.

Right now I am attending university to become an elementary school teacher, so that one doesn't count, since that it what my profession will be anyways...

But if I could have any profession I would love to be a singer/songwriter (I love music and the lyrics - they move me)

But, most of all, the most noblest profession that I would love to have would be as a wife and a mother

i share dark enchantress' picks.. i would adore being a psychologist,and i think the abnormal psychology feild would be my pick...ie serial killers,shizofrenia,pyschopaths in general and no i'm not trying to be funny.

i would also adore being a photographer and being able to actually support myself.

a self supported painter,or illustrator,or jewlery maker.

i know you asked or ONE thing,but i'm one of those multi people who wants to do everything.lol
