What's your "dream job"?

A photo of theboydetective theboydetective
I'm sure that many of us have already given up on our "dreams" and are entering university with more realistic goals in mind. I'm also sure many of us are still pursuing our dreams.
So, which are you doing? Perhaps a compromise between the two? Dream-pursuing on the side? What is/was your dream, and how is what you're headed towards right now related to it?

Dream: DVM + MD (aka veterinarian and doctor)

Pursuing: DVM, specialist in small animal, soft tissue surgery

I've wanted to be a vet since I was 8 but in recent years (since starting undergrad), I wish I could be an MD as well.

Dream: Own and run a small critically acclaimed restaurant in California with a garden out back that supplies the majority of the produce and write a cookbook based on it.
Actuality: The food industry is cruel and unrelenting, I couldn't handle the sacrifice it takes to make it big. Well I could, but I don't want to. Instead, I plan to study science (which I also like) and pursue pharmacy or med school or something, and make the big cash to cook, travel and dine out on my free time. And maybe, in some insane world, when I'm older, open a restaurant on the side.

Dream: Know I had a lasting impact on someone's life.

Actuality: I'm in Con.Ed to become a teacher. I'm looking to work in a school with a principal who is willing to put up with the administrative headache of letting me be innovative. That is easier said than done, but if done then I hope to live my dream in the next few years :).

Dream: Teaching and research in psychology and/or philosophy at a big-name university.

Actual: Clinical psychology, hopefully with children or soldiers (as a civilian psychologist) or somewhere else interesting.

I'm only a little (exceptionally) worried about keeping a 3.7 GPA. It's only 80% but UofT is supposedly hard. That said, I am genuinely passionate about learning. I just need to find the social structures to stay focused and encouraged (yay, I'm already engaging in psychological counselling.. e.g counselling myself, so ahead of the game :bball:).
