Today as I sat with my grade level team, doing our curriculum mapping, one of the teachers mentioned that she used to be a children's toys reviewer for Amazon. The company would send her crates of toys and she would watch her children play with them and write reviews. Apparently she got paid about a hundred and fifty dollars for each review!! what a great way to give your kids new toys (even for a short period. They usually lose interest in them in a couple of weeks time anyway!) and make money over the summer!
Hmmm. . . What would I want to be?
I used to want to be a radio news reader. I guess a small part of me still does. Although I dont know many people who listen to news on the radio anymore. I took two courses on Reading for Radio as part of my post graduate study and I loved it!
A baker! I do it when I have the time, but should I have to quit my teaching job for some reason, then I would have to depend on my baking for additional income.
A restaurant reviewer! A good friend has just begun doing this and I love what I see on his blog. You get invited to some of the poshest, nicest restaurants to eat their food, and all you do in return is write about them. (Sorry Div, I know its not that simple, but I would just like to think so)
Photo journalist! I think its a cool job. except I have none of the skills it requires. :(
Modest Fashion Designer. I emphasize on the word 'modest' because there is a real dearth of fashion designers that make fashionable yet modest clothes. I know many Christians who think fashion is evil and hence dress frumpily. I think it is possible to live frugally and still wear nice clothes.
Run a Bed and Breakfast Oh how I would love that! What an unhurried life! I love meeting people, chatting, cooking, napping in the afternoons. . .sigh! But my mom tells me I am not a very good hostess, because I spend more time chatting that I do serving the guests. So that's off the list.
I could just continue being the wife, mother and teacher that I am !
I am so thankful for my job!
