Career Options

Have you seen the movie "Never Been Kissed?" I like that movie for several reasons but none that are worth mentioning in detail.

Anyhow, there is this one scene where Josie (Drew Barrymore) is getting to know Aldys (Leelee Sobieski) and Josie asks her "what do you want to be when you grow up? What are your dream and aspirations?"

Aldys gets excited and proceeds to list about 15 different career options and 4 colleges that she wants to attend. This always amuses me because I can totally identify with Aldys.

For the record, I know I have been called into ministry and missions...I know that like the back of my hand. But there are about a dozen other jobs that I think I'd also really enjoy:

--Chef or Caterer
--Bible Teacher for middle school, high school, or college
--Camp Director/Administrator
--Background Singer
--Coffee Shop Owner
--Case Worker
--Tour Guide
--Pastor's Wife (not exactly a job you can apply for)
--Bank Teller
--Food critic
--An actor on Sesame Street (after all, how cool would it be work with Bert, Ernie, Elmo, Big Bird and the others!)

So what are some jobs you think you'd enjoy?

This is on my leaders profile for youth that I did about 18 months ago.

Something you have always wanted to do? Be a chief cheesemaker, a florist, kyak for miles and miles, be a magician, live on a houseboat, be in a band, get a perm, build my parents a house, fly, backpack around the world, run dance lessons on a cruise ship, compete in the Olympics in polevaulting, the pentathlon or curling, travel first class on the Orient Express, wear boots!

Out of all of those I did end up buying myself custom made boots from the US to fit my giant calves. So that one off the list.
