So if there was no way you could be doing what you are actually doing/studying right now, what would you be doing instead?

I'd either be a cook or an English teacher.

EDIT: Be serious, people. We all know you'd drop your profession of doing whatever right now to be a rock star, but what is a career you would have actually actively pursued if you current career had, for some reason, not worked out?

Well, I do love learning about the galaxy and nebulas and all that, so whatever you call those people working at NASA. Though I imagine it's not at all what I expect.

But if we're not being as literal, I'd be a rock-star as well.

ASTRONOMER! That's the word I'm thinking of.

If I wasn't so caught up with my very serious part-time waitressing career, I would find a different piece of shit job to get by.

Here's a very serious, and (relatively) easy to follow tip: Learn to program. It opens door regardless of any other negative factors you have. If you know how to work with code, you've automatically opened a thousand doors, doing just that.

My part time job as a programmer is a piece of cake, I get to choose my own hours, and if I ever can't come to work, big deal, I make up for it by doing the work faster, or shifting the hours to other times. Seriously, learn to program. It makes everything easier.

As of right now I'm going into something with computers. The thing I'd absolutely love to do is music producing, but the more realistic alternative option would be some form of psychology.

I know absolutely nothing about programming. I wouldn't even know how to start. But that sounds awesome.

I can guarantee you that no matter what you do, learning to program, and learning the logical way of thinking needed to program, will be a great asset.

That being said, any Dummies book about any language will be adequate in teaching the basics of programming. The language literally doesn't matter. I personally would recommend a Visual Basic book, since you're a complete beginner. That will allow you to easily get a basic understanding of programming. It will also take you probably about a half year to really understand everything through and through, but it will greatly benefit you.

I don't really have a profession but I'm studying sound engineering. And if I don't get to the next school I'll change to either instrument building or music teaching.
If I hadn't gotten into the first sound engineering school though, I would be working with computers.

My history professor has an undergraduate degree computer science, but went to graduate school for history. He's worked for Microsoft and writes books on Visual Basic.

Really weird coincidence.

currently going into the film industry (starting as a Production Assistant...hoping to be a producer one day)

If I wasn't going to do this, then I'd probably be a surgeon. Who knows? Maybe if this film stuff doesn't pan out by the time I'm like 30, I may end up doing med school.

I'm currently an IP lawyer. I often think about what the next step would be - whether it should be law or not. Truth is, I've been doing law for around 8 years and that's exactly a third of my life. I've always wanted to go in-house working as a lawyer for a major record company and get to the next level that I didn't know I had but I sometimes also wish to do something completely different for a change like being a Counsellor or doctor. I love helping people.

i work at mcdonalds.
i dont mind it, its not bad, but long shifts suck, and the pay is cruel. i want to be studying astrophysics and i wish i had better guitar chops.

I like the idea of trading stocks. If I had the capital I'd like to give that a go.

Also teaching or working in a nuclear power plant.
Something about turning mass into energy everyday is kinda cool.

I dunno, maybe a carpenter or locksmith. Maybe work in IT services. I'd do whatever shitty job I need to get by, and settle for the least shitty of my limited options.

Would be nice to have a job which doesn't require overtime and produces something tangible.

Study politics at the moment. I wish I had been more interested in science or something more solid as a teenager, then I might have taken a proper degree with career prospects. That said, there's nothing other than politics and IR that interests me (and even that is a very loose usage of "interest"), so I don't think I would change career assuming I find one.
#38
If I couldn't study Biology I'd probably be doing something related to the English language or teaching.

I think being a math/finance major would have been the best use of my skills though. I used to be amazing at math but I'm not anymore because I haven't done it for 3 years (not including statistics)

Well, at this point I'm not pursuing any one particular career, but I see these as being all of my main options (though some are less likely than others):

-something in radio
-live audio for television
-doing audio for porn
-doing tranny porn
-pick pedal steel guitar
-pick bluegrass banjo
-be an "activist"
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.
