What I Want to Be When I Grow Up


My sweet blogging friend, Annie, tagged me for this meme last week.

If you had the opportunity to do a 1-year internship in a company or field completely unrelated to your current career or specialty,
what would be your top 5 choices?

#1. Book or Magazine Editor
I was one of the few people who liked diagramming sentences in 7th grade English, and I have a minor in English because I took so many literature and writing classes in college just for fun. There is little like the written word to move people. I'd love to be a part of that.

#2. Cosmetics Marketer
For lack of an official term, I'd love to be that person who names things like lipstick, nail polish and the newest eyeshadow. How cool would it be to sit in a room all day and say things like, "Cherry Pie?". No. "Watermelon Ice?" No. "Red Corvette?" Perfect.

#3. Fashion Designer for a Movie
I love all things behind-the-scenes, and I've always been fascinated with the ins and outs of fashion design, especially for a large project like a TV series or movie.

#4. Forensic Psychiatrist
Don't hold it against me, but I'm fascinated with characters like Hannibal Lecter (Silence of the Lambs). Anything that even borders on a psychological thriller has my vote, even if it means fava beans with a nice Chianti.

#5. Cowgirl
Quite honestly, I'm not sure what it entails, but I like the wardrobe. Give me a pair of 501s, a hat, some boots and turn me loose on the ranch and let me see what it's all about.


Vader's Mom :

I love, love, love your list. Red Corvette...I'd buy it! :) You need to come visit me and we'll go to the Cowgirl Hall of Fame. It's a beautiful place to visit.

Amber Kay :

Riding a horse all day in a super cute outfit?!?! Now that's my kind of job!

justabeachkat :

I'm with you on the forensics, cosmetics and cowgirl!

Fun list.


Sonya :

Love your list! The cowgirl is my favorite! Who doesn't want to be a cowgirl! I'm such a sports geek that most of my answers were in that field!

Lori :

Cool list - well thought out.

The forensics job for me - NO way!

Very fun to read!

Jamie :

Love the list...you would make a great cowgirl! YEE HAW!!!

Have a great weekend! ;)

Drama Mama :

I got an English minor also because I had taken so many English classes- I would be an editor or makeup namer also- I don't really like to get hot so the cowgirl thing is out for me- but I would like to wear some cute boots and jeans! Love your blog!

Leah in Iowa :

Wow - what a broad spectrum! =) You crack me up. Actually, it's making me think about what MY answers would be. Maybe I'll start jotting things down and consider myself tagged.....

Carrie :

What a cute list!
Hope you have a great weekend!
God bless :)

Susan :

What a GREAT and fun list! I alwasy thought I wanted to be a cowgirl!

I nominated you for another award...come on over and pick it up when you get a chance.

Leah in Iowa :

Just wanted you to know I stopped by your hubby's blog today. Never noticed him under your "Great Places" before now. But he is funny. FUNNY!! =)

Annie :

Love your list Jill, it's as unique as you are :o)

Susan :

I got a big kick out of your #5 - because you like the outfit!!!!

Stacy at Exceedingly Mundane :

Oh, this is great! I was tagged by 2 other bloggers and I posted mine today. Let me tell you, mine PALES in comparison to yours. I was feeling very uninspired when I was trying to come up with 5 things. I should have stopped off over here and uh hum, "borrowed" a couple of yours :)

Judi :

Fabulous list!
