Dream Jobs (October 2014)

This month's "Life in Middle Earth" introduced you to Jake Stephens, a lifelong Lord of the Rings fanatic who landed his dream job: creating landscapes for the Hobbit movies. What's your dream job? Camel groomer? Bubble gum taster? Bullet train conductor?

Sujay, I think "virologist" is spelled without bold.

I would like to be a writer (novels and screenplays, not magazines) and work on movies and stage shows. Tech, not acting. The plan is to tech a show/movie, write for a while, then do another show/movie and so on. Stories take over our lives and I work with that. I am in favor of the oxford comma, thank you very much.

My dream job is to be a marine biologist photographer, where I would drive around in my Yellow Submarine on the bottom of the ocean and take awesome photographs of marine life and sell them in a gallery for $10,000,000,000,000

Probably one of the people that does the voices for animated Disney movies. I can do pretty much any voice or accent you request. I also love to sing and act, so a Broadway actress wouldn't be too bad either....

I want to be a teacher when I grow up.

I want to be a kindergarden or 4th grade teacher.

I want to be an artist. Not just the painting kind, but like mosaics, recycled soda cans, sewing, paper cutting, melting wine glasses, and making supercool sculptures with found objects.
