I wanted to be a doctor, but I didn't have the patients.


How droll.

If I could do anything? Venture Capital, Pro Baseball or Football Player, Senator or President, etc.

Realistic option that I really wanted to do? Management Consulting. But I didn't go to an Ivy so my chances are ridiculously marginalized.

Upside to all this? I'm not going to law school hahaha.

I always wanted to be a lawyer... until I grew up and realized i'd love to work with autistic children.
So I guess non-profit stuff in that area? who knows.

Those new space tourism companies that will be popping up in the next 20 years will need some good, passionate in-house counsels.

Space law is also going to be real too with all the space junk floating around endangering other orbital objects and things on the ground.

How about just suing for being born? Intentional infliction of emotional distress?


Post-natal depression defense again? Pshaw.

My dream in life is to work for E! I either want to be a writer for the Soup, or be Kristin who writes a column about tv. I've always had a larger than normal love for television, and I would love my job to relate to it.

Hey! Being an excel jockey is glamorous. :D


I'm sorry sir, you need a PhD in Economics for that position.



Actually an MBA in HR can be more than enough if you know what you're doing (FTR, my wife does and makes a very good living thanks to it).

Big band singer (unfortunately pretty much extinct nowadays anyway), or a chef (a surprisingly expensive investment as well).

I was one of those kids who was told I belonged in a courtroom from the time I was in 2nd grade. At one point I wanted to be a PE teacher/volleyball coach but then I realized that really I was just gay and liked sports a whole hell of a lot. Cliche, I know. From then on it's been all about being a lawyer in some capacity or another. Boring right? Sometimes I have delusional day dreams that I will make enough money to start my own business that combines a couple of my obsessions: cupcakes, bikes, paninis, gelato, and coffee. I guess I will see how this turns out...

That doesn't actually require a whole lot of money. We could get this up and running in law school :)

Clearly we should be friends! Where are you planning to go? My top choices are cupcakes and bikes. Haha sometimes TLS is an excellent distraction from hw.
