Dream Job

If you could do any job to make your money what would you do?
My dream job would be international art thief or a porn star.

What is your dream job?

What about an international porn thief? Nowhere is safe - I'll find your secret stash wherever you hide it!

Would Moedred's Administrator title be an aspiration, or is that a step-down in Raven hierarchy?

My dream job would be no job at all. Though, I'd end up busier than ever - too much fun stuff to do.

It doesn't matter actually, since all these fancy titles come with the same pay rate...

Well, because being disgustingly rich isn't exactly a job. . .I'd like to get paid to hunt for antiques.

For real? Or fantasy?

Real: Movie director. On my way there. Or, an RPG designer who can actually make money doing it.

Fantasy: Arrrr, a swashbucklin' pirate, matey! Arrrr!

I'd love to be a comic book writer and/or artist.

I'm shooting for that. Hopefully it will come true!

Shooting low:
Successful IT system analyst and developer who primarily works at a relatively small, but highly ethical firm. Occasionally I would be contracted out to help other companies with their processes for some extra cash.

Shooting high:
Lead designer at my personally owned - and very successful - video game company.

Shooting straight up so that the bullet will probably come down and hit me in the head:
Be the tech guy in a group of renegade explorers pioneering the vastness of outer space. And, hopefully sometime find some alien ruins and go on a race against some unsavory charlatans to discover their secrets in an odd, Indy-like-but-in-space adventure.

Do you attend San Diego Comic Con? That's definitely the place to make contacts to break into the business. I highly recommend it! Good fortune on your venture!

That is how I got to do my short lived gig in comics meeting artists and writers at comic book cons/shows.

Filmmaker. I write and direct my own short films. And I've won a few local film contests. But going to film school and becoming a proffesional filmmaker would be my dream job.

I'm quite happy being a teacher.

Just a little less paperwork and/or correction work would be nice though...

Oh, and more money....
