Assume for a moment your life has been very different - and you could chose any career you've ever heard of (or imagined!). Assume you had the talent
and training... for whatever it is.
What career would you chose?
Museum archaeologist. Why? Because I think it would be really interesting.
Though more recently I've thought it would be great to get paid to write letters of complaint!
Psychologist - it's interesting to look at "What makes people tick" and find a way to support them through a problem.
Son of a multi-millionaire.
LAw has interested me, but realistically, I'd have loved to have been an astronut (sic), failing that, a pilot!
A musician, volinist, guitar player, I love music but I'm a little tone deaf.
It would be good to bring joy and pleasure to other people though my music.
It would also be fulfilling to have a "passion".
A close second would be a writer, To be a name everybody recognises, another JK Rowling.

Ooh teaching is something I'd recommend. Every day is
different and there is a real sense of accomplishment at the end of the academic year when you look at how much they know "now" compared with what
they knew "then". Secondary is different because they have so many teachers but you can still inspire and change lives and the truth is that for
many young people their teacher is the best part of their day.
The teen is doing law as part of her degree and is loving it so far. She's even spoken about converting it so she can practise if it continues to be as interesting. She dreams of being paid for writing though and her first choice is journalism. Sadly I think that there will be less and less need for journalists as we move towards the day of the blogger. Newspaper sales in this country at least are reducing every year.
At the moment, I am training to be a make-up artist, am doing a full time diploma in theatrical and media make-up and a part-time course in cosmetic make-up then hope to follow this with a uni and take more short hairdressing courses. It was what I wanted to do before I left school, but left home at sixteen and did another things instead, which I donít regret.
Oh, interesting choice.
