Dream Job


The League has spoken - If money was not a concern and you could choose any career path, what would be your ultimate dream job?

I've missed that last few LoEBs and my apologies for that. I was really looking forward to the “What if…? — Write an alternate turn of events for a pop culture storyline” and "Post a photo of a shelf of items that displays your love for pop culture" assignments.  Unfortunately, life got in the way for the former and most of my display items are still boxed up* for the latter.  But this weeks assignment is simple enough and I've got time.

When I was kid, my dad and I watched a lot of SciFi and Fantasy movies and show. Doctor Who, Ray Harryhausen films and, of course, Star Trek. I remember one day my dad showed my a bunch of photos of a new space ship, called a Space Shuttle orbiter, named the Enterprise and the actors from Star Trek were also in the picture.  I was fascinated.  Then SciFi and space travel seemed to be everywhere. There was Star Wars, Buck Rogers, Moonraker, etc.  That's when I decided what I wanted to be when I grow up...

An Astronaut!

I started focusing on my science and math classes (that's what the teacher told me all astronauts need).  I would buy every model of every spacecraft every built. I learned about all the space programs and all the astronauts involved.  I even ordered the info kit for Space Camp and tried saving my money to go.  Unfortunately, things happened. I didn't get to be an astronaut, but I still like my job.  But in answer to the League assignment, yeah, if money was not a problem, I would want to be an astronaut.

Or a Jedi. I'm good either way.

Looks like I'm not the only one that wanted to be an astronaut.

And some folks are already working their Dream Job.


* I moved into a bigger home about a year ago.  Yeah, most of my "non-essential" in still packed away.
