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.

"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."

"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!"

"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.

"Goodbye" signs in various language seen at Disneyland's "it's a small world" attraction

All languages have certain words that roll so beautifully off the tongue.

It's no wonder why listening to vocal arias from operas and oratorios–which are typically in languages other than English–can be such a satisfying experience.

Examples coming to mind that are pleasant to the ear include, "Un Bel Di Vedremo" from the Italian opera Madame Butterfly and "Au fond du temple saint"–a duet from the French opera, Les pêcheurs de perles.

Movies are one of the greatest things in the world. I honestly believe that. And I think a lot of people will agree.

However, when talking about movies, a lot of people aren't thinking about documentaries.

Documentaries are movies about the real world, where the cameras capture candid moments, experts are consulted on the subject matter, and the end result is the viewers always learn something new.

My favorite is the documentary series Wild Wild Country, which never ceases to entertain me, no matter how many times I rewatch it. I’m not the only one who loves them, of course.

My best friend found her whole worldview had changed after she saw Blackfish for the first time. My brother pulled up his entire GPA after doing a report on Jon Cartwright’s Lighting Up the World, and of course, no health class was complete without a viewing of Supersize Me.

Redditors love documentaries too and were ready to share their favorites.

You should.
