I would've liked to have been on the other side, just to see if they enjoyed it as much as me.

Joined the forces. Or archaeology Indy Jones style. Or what I do now but joining earlier in life which would give more future opportunities. But I'm happy enough.

A selective archaeologist who only investigated interesting British neolithic and early bronze age stuff, I doubt such a role exists so as a compromise I'd like to have been Wiltshire county archaeologist.
In reply to Trangia: Vet. I had a crack at becoming a pilot in the RAF - I passed the aptitude tests but failed the interview because they said I had an inadequate vocabulary and no sense of humour.

In reply to Trangia: Gainfully Unemployed - unfortunately, short of winning the lottery (which i don't play) that's not going to happen.

I'm in the position of seeking a job inline with my academic training for later this year; ideally something with an analytical or process chem basis... with the longterm aim of being in a position to move into the oil-services sector.

If you had your time again dream jobs would remain as far away for most as they did this time.

Gamekeeper/estate manager.
I had the chance to go to agricultural college when I left school, but turned it down as back when I was 16, I thought higher wages lead to higher happiness in life. How wrong I was.

I'd like to build little assault courses for squirrels and also try to make a living from my cruelty free fur business, my main problem at the moment is stopping the mink attacking the coat wearer and teaching my fox fur hat to sit still.

I should have chosen Physics or Medicine over Biology, much better job academic job market due to non-academic alternatives.

Oh well, back to writing applications....

Did one shift working as a cameraman for one of those 'television x' type channels and never went back. The seediest, nastiest thing I've ever done.

I watched a lot of Quincy in my youth.


Train Driver.
I watched a lot of Casey Jones in my youth.

As a nurse I was happiest rummaging around in absolutely filthy sloughy smelly wounds, and re-dressing them. Alas, no longer.
and at least now I DO sometimes get to drive steam trains!
