Monday Morning Question

Monday Morning Question:

If you could have a career change right now, and do anything you wanted to, what would it be? 

My answer:  I can't work right now, because I am disabled, but if I could, well, there is at least ten things that I can think of that I would like to do.  But I am going to pick just one.  An ESL teacher.  Or something in the ESL field involving teaching English as a second language to people.  I did this in a volunteer capacity a number of years back and enjoyed it immensely.  It was extremely rewarding.

What would you choose to do?

  3. Well, I do not work and have not done for years (except in the home).  If I could have done what I really wanted, I would have been a vet.  Have a happy week Krissy xxxxx

    I too am on disability but if I could do anything in the world, I would like to carry on the wonderful work Princess Diana did. I would love to go out to orphanages and help and make a difference. I am no princess but I just want to help those less fortunate than myself..............Jules xxx

  7. I don't work, but I am going to go to school, soon.  I have narrowed my career choices down to: Criminal Justice, Cosmetology, Culinary Arts, or Personal Trainer.  Varied, huh?  I have a reason for each!  JAE

  8. I am a part-time postal worker, very boring and I`ll be redundant after Christmas so I will be looking for something else anyway. I would really like to work with animals so I think I will give it a try...Sandra x

  9. I am disabled also.  Boy this is a very hard question.  I wish I had alot of money so I could go around volunteering wherever the need is greatest.  I want to help people...

  10. I would want to work for Veggie Tales, doing both voice overs and writing crazy songs for them. I am so crazy sometimes and have come up with some fun stuff. That would be the ultimate job for me. Not only would I be singing, which is what I love, I would also be able to help make god and bible stories known to the public.

    I would care for AIDS babies.  I have lots of love to give and all the time in the world since I, too, am disabled.

  13. Oh, I know, I know....can I have another shot at this?  I've changed my mind.  Meteorology....not on TV...just study the storms all day on the computer.  LOL!

  14. Ah...easy one. I'd have oodles of money and spend all my free time giving it away to people in need. Too far fetched? Ok then. I'd love to be a professional photographer. I'd have my own studio and do weddings and such, and portraits of people, babies and animals. I'd also love to do art photography and be shown in a gallery. Yeah. Maybe someday. :-)

  15. I'd like to be a professional photograher and videographer, and travel the world filming all the beautiful places most will never get to enjoy. But to be practical, I would be a Social Studies teacher, then I could teach about all those places!

  16. I am a full time carer to my husband but if I had the chance I would like to work as a psychiatric nurse.... Not really a 'career' change, as my husband suffers from manic depression, amongst other ailments. Because of his illness and my own personal forays into mental illness (depression and seasonal affective disorder), I feel I have the understanding and patience needed. Alternatively I would spend my time educating the general public about mental illness. It is the 'Cinderella' branch of medicine and very misunderstood by many people. People who have not had first hand experience/knowledge  of mental illness tend to be frightened by it. That is wrong. Mental illness is what it says....just an illness like any other.

    Admirable, an ESL teacher!  It doesn't surprise me that you would do something so needed, something that would effect lives of others.  :-)

    As for myself ... duh, a PHOTOGRAPHER!  One who makes real money. LOL

    I would like to do tons of new things.  But I'll pick the funnest thing to me -- I would be an award winning singer.  Mostly folk songs but some rock and roll and some Christian songs.  That would be fantastic!  Arielle Marie

    My career change would be to that of a leading liver specialist and cure my hubby. If only it could come true. Will just have to rely on the Doctors at the transplant unit and hope they can come up with a cure befor his transplant.
    Thanks for reading my journal and your comments. You have no idea how much it means to hear from people out in journal land and know that they are thinking of you.
    Love and blessings Joyce

  23. If I could change my career, I would run a youth group and be founder of an academy for talent less fortunate youngsters.
