Sorry, forgot that we had a birthday party to go to yesterday.

So, now for the next step you can all help each other. The more people join, the better this works.

When you look at your list of 10, are there certain things that are the different professions have in common? If you take Michelle's for instance, most professions involve being creative, being in control, freedom and exploring. I'm sure we can come up with more. What you do is think of professions that are more realistic but that do include these things. If you can't think of anything, you could ask help from for instance the people who work at employement agencies. They usually know quite a lot about different kind of professions.

1. Photographer(I am one)
2. Teacher
3. neuroscientist
4. Artist
5. Seamstress/designer
6. Graphic Designer
7. Tour Guide
8. Craft Store Owner
9. Bakery Owner
10. Queen of the world...lol...just wanted to throw that in ...but Airline stewardess

For Michelle I would think of a job as a teaching assistant in the creative classes and assisting elderly/sick/demented people filling their day with activities like knitting, sewing and reading.
