Comments on The Clutter Museum: Underpaid professions I'd like to try if I ever finish the damn dissertation

I'd like to own a fitness studio that offered only off-beat fitness classes. Some examples:
-Pole Dancing
-Capoeira
-Gyrotonics
-Breakdancing

(1) International playboy, obviously.

(2) Fine-art photographer. Perhaps I would even finish up my Commonwealth project.

(3) CIA analyst.

Just the other day I was thinking that I'd like to write children's books but I dismissed the idea because I didn't know anyone interested in illustrating--we should hook up if this PhD thing doesn't work out!!

I wonder what else I'd like to do--perhaps be a wedding photographer or a songwriter??

I started this comment ages ago, and then my husband and inlaws suddenly came back from shopping and I had an attack of conscience, because I stayed home to do homework and still hadn't done any.

Fantasy careers:

1. Jazz singer. I didn't say "realistic career options." That would use my education well, right? I did a lot of vocal jazz in high school, and I'm a different person when I have a microphone in my hand.

2. Novelist, of course.

3. Photographer/writer of travel books. Some day, I'm going to write a book analysing German monuments, and it's going to include my own photos. Secretly, it'll be my travel book.

4. Oddly enough, I've been dreaming lately about organising things with my home province's regional colleges, so that I could teach in a small town regional college. Right now, they're mostly having to do history by distance, because no prof seems to want to live out in a podunk town. I can be that prof, if it means finding my husband a cool teaching job in one of those small towns that's always trying to hire him, and buying a great big house for cheap.

I have the same career fantasy of bringing scholarly subjects alive to "the people," so I've had the public historian idea that you've had, plus I like the idea of being a documentary filmmaker. The fact that I have no idea how to use a camera has never stood in the way of this latter fantasy.

I also have a strange fantasy career of going to work for an Episcopal diocese and getting their vocations/ordination program in order. I have many, many ideas on the subject, and I'm pretty organized, and I'm smart, and I'm sure I could do a much better job than most of the folks who are paid to do this job. However, I'm not very patient at working with folks whom I don't think of as smart (which I think of as a real character weakness on my part), so I think I shouldn't pursue this project.
