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."

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

It's understandable why so many people are afraid of the dark.

There is no clear sight ahead, no telling who might be around, not to mention being even more attuned to every sound you hear in your periphery.

There's simply no telling what may happen to you when you're out alone in the dark.

Unfortunately, nothing can stop the same things from happening to you in broad daylight.

Indeed, the most terrifying things many people ever experienced happened when the sun was shining high.

While people try their best to be pleasant, sometimes we are so wrapped up in our own worlds that we don't realize some of our behaviors or actions aren't appreciated by everyone.

Things like talking on the phone in a public place or listening to music without headphones have become so normal that people don't always realize others may be irritated by this behavior.

Perhaps one reason horror films are so popular is that people know they are watching a work of fiction.

As soon as they leave the theatre or turn off the TV, they are out of the terrifying world they've been a part of for two hours but got the rush of adrenaline they need, similar to riding a roller coaster or thrill ride.

For this reason, no movie, TV show, or book, no matter how scary they are, can never equal being scared in real life.

As finding yourself, or worse your family, in a dangerous and/or life-threatening situation is an experience so terrifying, it genuinely defies description.

One of the hardest things in the world is being able to afford life's necessities. We all work and make money (or have parents that do), but having money and being able to afford what you need are two different things.

I'm not just talking about the latest gadgets, either.

Not having a fancy knife set or the newest Apple Watch won't destroy your life.

I'm talking about the things so vital to our survival that they should be cheap, but are actually near impossible to afford.

Redditors know this to be true and are ready to share what some of those vital things are.
