If any of you are university/college age people, or even beyond, do you know what you'll be doing as a job in the future? Cos I certainly don't! And I pretty much felt like the only one growing up, surrounded by kids with concrete job aspirations. Of course now I realise that most of the people around me only have a vague idea of the job they want, if that. And maybe I'm putting too much emphasis on career - I know its not the most important thing in the world. But I do think being happy is important.
So, blow it, if it all goes wrong here are my outrageous bank-busting back up options ;)
(also read: dream plans)
1. Village Pub
It is a fact of life that I have watched too much Corrie over the years, but this means that I am slightly obsessed with the idea of running a pub and living above it. The pub could be anywhere doesn't have to be a village, in fact in a slightly unhinged/romanticised way I wouldnt mind a slightly scummy street corner pub! But being the softie I am for a village green, pretty church and slow pace of life, this would pretty much be my dream job!
2. Vintage Boutique
I'm sure the current (last 2/3 years?) fad for vintage clothing will fade soon (and as an avid vintage fan hopefully this means the pricing will go back to normal!) but I hope there is always a market for good quality vintage. But I'm no snob; repro or vintage inspired modern pieces have just as much of a place and sometimes are even more perfect! I'd love to offer some kind of personable, glamorous service a la Lucy In Disguise haha (side note: have you seen their website? now that is a website)
3. Tea Room
Maybe I could even combine this with the one above, and have a cute lil tea room in the corner of a vintage boutique? (The mothership would love that haha). I remember being introduced to tea rooms on our many family holidays to Scotland as a child, being given sweet meringues with cream! As a grown up with a mild to moderate tea obsession I can now seriously appreciate a good pot of English Breakfast tea and a toasted teacake.
Anybody else have secret dream jobs? Or not so secret in my case!! haha
This was a bit of a cop out post. I'm going to write something good soon *pinkypromise*
I have a few exciting days ahead, but I must stop procrastinating and battle through this uni coursework first! Good luck anyone with exams!!
