They don't tell you that you need money to fund the dream.

Nothing is free, not even our imagination.

So what jobs would we take if money didn't matter?

The list is endless.


RedditorJust_Replacement3989 wanted to hear about what jobs we dream of if anything was possible.

They asked:

"If money wasn't an issue, what would be your profession?"

I'd be so many things. I'd actually have to time to find out what I was capable of doing.

Loop Drumming GIFGiphy

"Drummer in a crappy band."

"Is there room for a second drummer in your crappy band? I'll even settle for being like the guy in Slipknot who just hits a keg with a bat."

Good Times

"I would want to be a florist."

"I worked at an indoor farm that mainly sold edible flowers. My favorite part was making edible flower arrangements for fancy restaurants. They would just order their flowers and I could arrange them however I wanted. Good times."

KickBallFever

"I worked as a florist for 4 years, to this day it’s my favorite job I’ve ever had. I wish it paid the bills!"

A Language Field

"Field linguist, studying, documenting, and preserving endangered languages. That’s why I spent years getting my PhD in linguistics. Unfortunately, there’s not really any jobs in field linguistics outside of academia, which is incredibly competitive, and there’s limited grant money, to boot. But I’d love to work with interested communities and speakers, and be able to say, hey no need to worry about where you’re getting the money for that."

From Below

"Underwater archaeology."

"If you haven’t heard it already, highly recommend listening to the Nat Geo Overheard podcast episode 'Scuba Diving in a Pyramid' as well as 'Cave of the Jaguar God.'"

friendlyMissAnthrope

"Checkout the David Gibbins books. He's a legit underwater archeologist, and the books are very much Indiana Jones meets MacGyver adventures. Lots of fun."

The Beauty of It All

Bob Ross Art GIFGiphy

"I'd be an art guy. Not make art but be the dude who finances artists, opens a local gallery, gives money towards fostering local theatre and film talent. Basically try to turn the area in which I live into a creative hub."

Ungreat

"Wonderful quote on the wall of Seattle’s Museum of Museums 'There is no version of a great city with a declining artist population.'"

Loving art full time is not cheap.

For Me

"Cottage dweller and personal chef for myself."

rivka_whitedemon

"This is my dream too. Been doing as much research as I can to make it a reality. I learned food preservation, gardening, woodworking and basket weaving, I already hunt and fish, I can make soap, cheese and bread, beer and mead. I just need to learn how to build a cabin now."

FAME

"Writer/Director."

-StruckByLightning-

"I have/had several friends that do/did that. I have a buddy that was a writer on News Radio. I have a friend that runs Bloomberg in Bulgaria."

"He also has several director credits for B movies you've definitely heard of. I have another friend who produces a huge show in NYC. Bottom line- They are absolute workaholics. Like 7 days a week, no time off. Yes they make tons of money, but missed most of their kid's childhood travelling and working. Not for me, I'm not a workaholic at all."

The Dream

"Stay at home dad, so I can spend more time with my son."

Prestigious_Lock1659

"That is the dream. To have everyone home at the same time goofing around. I look forward to the weekends, the three of us chill out in bed in the morning watching either toy story or minions. It’s great."

Prestigious_Lock1659

"That’s like my dream. Hoping I make less money than who I’m put with."

Knowledge Thirst

"Permanent Student. I want to learn how to do everything!"

Bunney26

"Yes this is it for me. Being able to study and not worry about the actual result, but have it structured etc. - the dream. I’d still try, I just wouldn’t stress that a less good mark will impact my career or opportunities. I’d not feel the need to be competitive. I’d just cruise in and out and have a good time!"

Dungeons And Dragons Pathfinder GIF by SeesoGiphy

"Hosting and teaching Dungeons and Dragons games. Would be nice to have the ability to learn all the books cover-to-cover and use that info 4+ days a week as a job."

Melissa-Crown

I just want money. I'll do anything. That is all.

We'd be lying if we said we haven't all made a poor decision in our lives. Whether it's letting a questionable ex back into our lives or pairing that shirt with those jeans, we all have a cringey memory to look back on.

But most of us don't have memories of inventing something terrible, let alone one of the worst inventions ever.

Children believe what their parents tell them about the world to be true because they don't know any better.

That doesn't mean they have to like what they are told. But a good child listens and will act accordingly to be in their parents' good graces.

But sometimes, adults abuse their power and say whatever it takes to get a desired response from a young one–even if what they're saying may not be entirely true.

No two people have the same threshold for pain.

Some people don't even notice pricking their fingers, while others might equate doing so to being fully amputated.

No matter one's threshold, however, being in pain, big or small, is never a good feeling.

Particularly if it's the sort of pain that aspirin or ibuprofen can't take care of.

Some pain is so horrific that those suffering from it genuinely can't imagine going through anything worse.

We've all done things we aren't proud of.

Be it saying something behind someone's back, a prank that went a little too far, or a heated exchange with a friend or family member, everyone has crossed the line at one point or another.

Thankfully, more often than not, these mistakes can be salvaged with an apology and a little contrition.

Unless you've done something that goes well beyond a simple "I'm sorry."

We’re talking about actions that can only be described as "f*cked up."
