I have this vague misconception about my ideal job. It's not a specific occupation nor even a specfic genre. I just know I want to be in control of my own future. I want to, essentially, become my own boss and make my own choices. I know what's required for good customer service and what's required to make money rather than losing it. I can be frugal or generous whichever the situation calls for. I know how to dress up and present myself and I know when to kick back and relax with coworkers. I can make people who hate one another work together and I can make any task fun for anyone just by how it's presented.
Perhaps my plan of going into teaching isn't too far off from what I want in my life. But, to be honest, one of the main reasons I chose education over art or animation or writing or one of the many paths I've pursued...
I want the paid vacation time. I want my summers free to spend time with my imaginary future-family.
Yes, it's true that I love working with kids because the older sister in me is still there. And, yes, it's true that I love reading and writing and inspiring that same love in others. But I think teaching will be ideal for my other future plans as well.
