made up jobsPosted: June 7, 2013
i have a question for you and i really want to know the answer, so don’t leave me hanging. you guys are all so creative! so let your mind go there and tell me this…
what would you do if you knew you would succeed? my brain is in the job department because my heart wants to be on a farm. i want goats and chickens and flowers and quiet. but there’s this tiny little hangup… my husband’s job is in scenic houston. it’s a really good job that allows us to have both houses, but i want to be in the far away one. we could do a commute and go back and forth, but i happen to like my husband quite alot and i want to see him every day, not just some days. so there’s just that money problem. dang money. it’s so annoying and necessary, right? so let’s pretend i could be the bread winner and my ideas would totally work, be fulfilling, and provide for the family so we’re free to pet cows and make goat cheese in our free time.
imaginary job #1… small, funky wedding planner
so we’ve got all this space and scenary and i’m not entirely sure what to do with it. but i love fun, funky brides and i love awesome photography and i love party planning and homemade decor. so i’m thinking maybe i’ll make really awesome small weddings for those funky austin brides.
outdoor stuff like this
and some cute outdoor tables and settings like this
yep, that’s one job i’d like to do if i knew i could. you’re not a trendy austin bride are you? hmm…
imaginary job #2… glam photographer
once upon a time i used to be a boudoir photographer. i made alot of money and i was amazing at my job. i love working with women, i really do. and i can make them love how they look and that’s no small job. it’s been a problem in the family though, because i can’t really have a bunch of half naked ladies in my house and on my computer with a husband and three kids. but this is actually going to happen because i do miss it and we’re just going to make a way. but i’ll be perfectly honest with you and tell you the truth. i am awesome at boudoir, but my true love is in glamour photography. clothes on, styled, props, outdoors. this is some of my work in that realm, but i want to do way more and way more fun stuff too. bows and arrows and giant flower wreaths and lavendar fields. that’s what i’d do for sure if i knew i could make it.
imaginary job #3… goat cheese lady. self explanatory, yes? making goat cheese, hanging with goats. who doesn’t love a goat?
so what would your imaginary job be? if you could combine all the things you love and it would work? what would you do?
