I'm planning on becoming a writer and maybe having something to do with film or graphic design, and I would also like to study psychology and have something to do with that!

Jennie  (msdiamondeye) | 14 comments I would love to be a writer or a psychologist. I was also thinking architecture but not anymore. Now i'm thinking about something with languanges. Languange teacher or literature teacher.

@Jordyn haha I can't write poetry, but I do love reading it! And there's definitely a pattern going on here to do with our dream jobs.

Connie (faeriewings) | 86 comments Well a Shadowhunter, duh~
Or a warrior princess. That'd be cool.

Somewhat more realistically, I want to publish a book, but that's about all I've decided about what I want from my adult life xD

Oh, not nosy at all! I love talking about writing :)
Err, I mostly write (young adult) fantasy. It's all terrible and unoriginal and cliche, but I'm working on it xD

How about you, if you don't mind my asking?


message 21: by Jessica (new)

Jessica Folded Between the Pages of Books (jessilovesbooks) Riya, not boring at all! My sister has a degree in math and makes a lot more money than me! She's an actuary and loves it.

I'm planning on being a professor of political science. Super close now. I'm finishing up my PhD right now and I'll be applying for jobs in a couple months. eek!

Oh, cool! I mostly write contemporary young adult or new adult (well, I don't write new adult, but I have some projects that can be classified as new adult), since I'm not creative enough to think of a solid fantasy world or elements or anything. I like writing really gritty stuff and characters who are horribly flawed, but I still have to master that. But, yeah. I'm currently working on starting this queer romance idea I had which may go up on Wattpad around late 2014 or early 2015, depending on my free time.

That's awesome :) I've tried to write contemporary before, but it comes off as very unrealistic. My life is too boring for me to have a good idea of what a character's life would be like, I guess :P
Good luck with your story! I'd love to read it. I follow a few stories on Wattpad, but I've never had the courage to put anything of my own up, haha.

That is why contemporary can sometimes be harder to write - because it has to be realistic and the characters have to act appropriately :) I usually don't take situations directly from my life, but think of something inspired by them. To be honest, I'm really bad at thinking of an actual plot (everything I think of either sounds too pretentious or like it's already been done), but I'm good at deciding on what I want it to feel like. (Also, I love making playlists inspired by my stories; it helps me channel the theme of them easier)
Hopefully the idea turns into something! And I don't go on Wattpad very often, but I do read some stories occasionally. If I end up putting something up, I'll have to advertise somewhat since I'm not very popular on there lol

FangirlNina (spocktapus210) | 742 comments My dream job is being a Broadway or West End actress even though I'm an awful singer...


message 26: by Janessa (new)

Janessa Theatre design, so anything involving set design, lighting design, or costume design. I also want to direct as well.


message 27: by Sara (new)

Sara (saralawl) | 72 comments I either want to go into psychiatry or law (international law, to be precise). I'd also like to go into film, like writing scripts or whatever, but those two seem like more attainable goals. Who knows what the future will bring though.


message 28: by Ron (new)

Ron Scheer | 60 comments I'm 42, I'm supposed to be already be all growed up! but we all have dream jobs right?

Mine would be the person who gets to hand out those huge checks to the winners of lotteries, or the person the large companies hire to give out their big prizes, like cars, and trips, and such.

Tayma  | 214 comments I want to be something I'll enjoy. Well... Every once in a while I change my mind about this. Once I wanted to be an astronaut, a vet, a lawyer, an actress, a psychologist....and the list goes on. But since I was a child I wanted to be a writer and I just started writing a book tho I prefer writing poetry. And right now I don't really know what I want to work but I have an interest in languages. :)))
