I am so looking forward to some much needed time off from teaching. This year has created some unusual stress in my professional life which has since spilled over into my personal life. I am seriously weighing possibilities for my next career move.
I have been watching way too much Entourage in the past few months. Every time I watch an episode, the lifestyle just seems more and more attainable to me. I could just drop everything. Pick up my stuff. Move to Hollywood. Find a role in a movie... or make a friend who already has one, and the rest is history. Soon enough I will be living in mansions, flying private jets to various exotic destinations, and doing it all with a few close, emotionally and psychologically bruised friends.
This one doesn't seem like the safest line of work, but I could probably get away with killing the people determined to create stress in my life. I hear the money is pretty good as well.
Inherit a Load of Money
This does not really seem like a career path at second glance, but it seems to fulfill the needs for which a career provides. This would probably take a lot of research and definitely some creative liberties on my behalf to make this work. I think treasure hunting might fall in the same category actually.
I don't really care which one I go pro in. Whichever will take me. I have uncapped athletic potential and I'm just waiting for my break. I could see myself as a third-string QB on a struggling NFL team. I can call in plays from the sideline, and wear a ball cap instead of a helmet. Put me in, Coach!
I'm not thinking I would get rich doing this, but how much fun would this be? Herding cattle, riding horses, repairing barbwire fences, branding various livestock, wearing a cowboy hat, telling my wife she isn't cooking, cleaning, and taking care of the house properly are all things I can do.
The only reason I thought of this is because most people tell me I'm a space cadet. Kind of one of those self-fulfilling prophecy-type deals.
I have a garage big enough to cram in about 40-50 of the little ones.
These were just what I thought of off the top of my head. I'm sure there are plenty of great opportunities out there for an educated individual like myself. I just have to keep my nose to the grindstone... or get really really extremely lucky.
