Wishful Wednesday: Job

"I wish..." I got paid $1 million a year to ____!
(job or career)

Well, I wish I got paid a million per year for my current job. I consider myself very lucky because I work in the industry I'd dreamed of since I was about 17. I always wanted to be a public relations professional, and while my current position is a little different than I envisioned for myself, I enjoy it a lot and think it suits me well.

But since I get to wish it, I suppose in fantasyland I'd get paid $1 million a year to be a part-time event coordinator. Organizing events is probably my favorite part of PR - I love being organized, checking big things off my to-do list, and always knowing the answer to "where does this go?" It's a great feeling to be at a community festival that you coordinated, with nothing to do but stand around because you were so prepared that everything's going perfectly! In my career I've planned festivals and celebrations for public agencies... I like those and think weddings would be a blast too.

With the rest of my time (since I'd be a part-time event coordinator), I'd be a mom. I love thinking about the day when James and I have kids, and all the fun things we'll do with them. Take them on picnics, play soccer, read books and go to the pumpkin patch... I want to have plenty of time to do these things, and being paid a million bucks to do it would just be icing on the cake, don't you think?
