Doing something that would help others.

Hopefully, I'll become a psychologist.

Ski Lift Operator.

I plan on doing this 10 to 15 hours a week to keep myself occupied after I win the MegaLotto.

Sheltered workshop might have an opening. If you can get your foot in the door, put in a good word for me. What an awesome job that would be.

I think I'd like to paint little dots on substructure. I'm odd like that.

It's not all it's cracked up to be. Being shown off to the gin club ladies at the country club and prancing around in tight things while she takes photos. I feel cheap and used.

This would be a PITA, but a lot of fun if successful. I was thinking the same thing...Baton Rouge connection?

No spooge mopping in the T&A club you work at now?

If I really (all jokes aside) could pick my job, I would coach or train athletes. Even a personal trainer would be nice. My wife thinks this as well.

Of course she says I would make a good drill instructor too.

In keeping with that thought, there's a few others I'd like to paint dots on ...

1. Loving husband (and possibly father).
2. Tenured professor of organic chemistry at a high quality liberal arts college.

If those two happen, my wife (and possibly children) is happy, and some of my students remember my class as a study in conceptualizing problems and honing problem solving skills--dealing with the vagaries of real world problems, addressing qualitative and quantitative issues, dissecting observations and formulating predictions, balancing strategic and tactical considerations--I'll be a happy man.

yeah all jokes aside I would build a monster music studio
and jam forever... in-between riding bikes and jetting between
USA cities, Ibiza, and Amsterdam.

for a paying job, it would be installing and controlling light shows
for whatever the baddest huge techno club that is hot at the moment.
I am good like that. I am a freaking human octopus on light controllers,
and great with packs, relays, servos, lift systems, design, and
mood.
