Day 4, Dream career, 30 day blog challenge
Does such a thing As a dream job exist? Lots of you will say yes and you do it. A few of my friends are in their dream career. But having a dream and following a dream are too different things.
When I was a kid I had a lot of dreams I wanted to be a vet, marine biologist. I had a great science teacher and I find science and factS so fascinating. But I was good at art!
I love my job! If I could tweet it a bit it would be my dream job but I have other dreams….
I dream of being a travel writer, exploring and writing about food and experiences all over the world. I could easily spend a month in all the countries of Asia, embracing cultures, eating, seeing and absorbing.
My list of places to visit increases all the time. I am always enthused to visit a country and being European there really is no excuse not to travel to Europe more.
I don’t have a favourite country as I haven’t been to them all. I have always enjoyed writing. I used to make up stories all the time.
But being dyslexic even though it is only mildly, holds me back. I loved English at school. I had a great teacher, thank you Miss Dunlop, she was also my drama teacher. But I was a B Student. I never thought I was good enough to be a writer.
I was good at art at school I didn’t excel at much else, so I was never motivated to write.
It’s something that I love so much!
It would truely be a dream job!
I also dream of being an interior designer. I love interiors I used to say that Elle decoration was my bible and Habitat was my Church! Very uncouth I know. But that is how I felt.
That was until the world went Scandinavian interior mad and I got bored. Bored of seeing white boxes and pale greys on every page. I think the world is still a little Scandi mad! If you follow me on Instagram you will see that most of the accounts I follow are interiors.
I have an eclectic taste. I love colour and sentiment. I don’t think you should buy something because it’s on trend but because you love it. You home is like your wardrobe you should invest in it! You should care about each piece. There is nothing wrong with a few pieces that you bought and regret. Nor a few trend pieces to update your house but the landfill doesn’t need any more faux sheepskins that take a 100 years to biodegrade.
I abhor content creators who fill the dump with their mistakes. A house can eve live and change but you should not be flippant with it. Pieces of furniture should be something your love.
I probably would not make a great interior designer because I am too passionate about the craftmanship that goes into each piece.
I paint and draw and I dream of a time I actually have time to paint and progress my art but I don’t.
This is something I am good at and maybe after the wedding it need to be something that I actually focus on in my spare time. After all with how people shop now I could create a career from my own little house!
Or at least I don’t have time to draw and paint. I am planning on getting my MA in the future I just don’t know when that will be.
I would love for blogging to turn into a career. I know that there are many bloggers out their and I am definitely not niche enough to get a massive following but I have been doing this for a year now and get so excited with every single follower and like.
If this was my full time job then maybe I could incorporate my other dreams within it.
We will see!
