If you could pick any career ....what would it be?

I have to think about this for awhile.

I'm looking to get back to work after a several year hiatus. I am choosing to be a line cook, mainly because when I wake up in the morning all I can think about is what's for dinner. A true foodie I am. I think it's going to be a hard road at first tho because typically you don't see women on a line, and for the life of me I don't know why. Heck in 90% of homes women are doing ALL the cooking, so why WHY WHY isn't it reflected in resturaunts???? Baffles this brain :roll:

Just because someone tells you that you can't do something doesn't mean you have to listen.

Well, my career of choice is technology. I'm currently a technician, but my dream is to be an engineer. My second dream is to run my own restaurant or be a chef... I know.. doesn't make sense..

Good question, bang. I had been thinking of starting a similar thread, only about what you wanted to be when you were a kid.

Anyway, to answer yours: NOT RETAIL!
Let's assume for a minute that I have the chops to do any of these. How about......

guitarist in a bluegrass or jazz band
ski patrol
finish carpenter for high-end houses
landscape designer
dolphin trainer
hiring out to sail other people's boats to tropical destinations for them
Kool Aid - Think before you drink.

i want to own and operate a small b&b in vermont, with a huge greenhouse and farm behind it so i could grow my own fresh veggies, and raise my own lambs and chickens.
i would make family style but gourmet meals for brekkie and dinner, and would have my own wine and beer cellar...

in nomine patri, et fili, et spiritus sancti.
beidh ar la linn.
wisdom is often in short supply within ones' ego.
