    Professor with a job at a big urban research institutions that happily pays for my flights to conferences and fieldwork. I want to research, teach and travel. It's the perfect job!

    Emergency Medical Technician (though I may decide to become a paramedic, same job but w/ IVs and intubations)

    In no particular order:
    * Gives me a sense of purpose.
    * Makes me use--and thereby strengthen--my weaknesses.
    * Two words: Per Diem!
    * No feeling like having a patient remember your name and say Thank you.
    * Three more words: Lights and Sirens!
    * Adreneline rush
    * Hot firefighters :wink:

    I got into it purely by chance (or fate or God, etc.): I was feeling bad about myself... totally useless and selfish. So, I decided I wanted to volunteer for something. I looked into various volunteer opportunities, but none of them really fit who I was and I wouldn't have been very good at them. So, I was driving along and I see the word "VOLUNTEER"... on an ambulance. I remembered how I had wanted to be on a first aid squad when I was a kid, so I went for it. Getting the hang of things has been an uphill battle, but I love this job! It's really changed my life.

    Yes and I really love it. But I need the research part, too. It's a way of making my curiosity to learn new things AND pass on the knowledge a career.

    Software development for the finance department at MCI. I like to program, but sitting at that desk everyday staring at server output sucked the life right out of me. So, when they offered voluntary lay-off, I took it.

    ...course, now when I'm not working as an EMT (& in between first aid calls) I sit at my desk at home on the internet.

    I studied journalism, and was a newspaper reporter for a number of years. If I could somehow take away the deadlines and intense pressure, that would be my ideal job. Oh, and it would have to bring in more money because I was having some trouble in that department when I was a reporter too.

    That sounds pretty exciting, actually. I had a fantasy once of being an intrepid reporter.

    Ideal job for me: teach and do research but get paid a lot.

    Writer. It allows creativity, the ability to make money over prolonged periods of time without doing work unless you feel like it, and a constant tap into your subconscious.

    One that would combine the use of philosophy, theorical mathematics, electronic, troubleshooting, marketing, musical composition and critic, journalism, politics and teaching with a good ambience, like one that would be found in a monastery garden. It would also require me to analyze, structurize and critic, both absolutely and practically inventions and/or ideas. 0wned.



    *Note that in this context i interpret "dream" like in "fantasy" as opposed to "ideal within possible circumstances". Otherwise i have no clue what my dream job is.
