Most: Really anything to do with the criminal justice field. Cop, Special Agent, Victims Advocate, etc. - it is something I've always wanted to do. Also, a coach for softball.

Least: Truck driver, definitely! I love riding for long period of times, but no thank you to driving for long hours!

Most: If I could make a good living doing something with dogs that'd be great.

Least: Janitor or housekeeper. I hate cleaning.

Whoa if this was an option then not working would be for me! I'd probably volunteer though.

Most: Well there is a job through my god-brother's work called "Bison Research Technician." Since I'm still in college, I'm trying to work my way into what is very much a niche field (although I'm not exclusively attracted to buffalo haha), so anything that is related to field research with wildlife would have me over the moon.

Least: I had a desk job in a neuropsychiatry ward last year. The research was incredible and interesting, but data entry for eight hours a day sometimes literally brought me to tears. ADHD and cubicles is just a terrible combination!

My job is perfect and I love that not everybody can or wants to do it. Each day, family, situation & funeral is unique. Could have a four hour day or a fourteen hour day. Could be outside at a cemetery, parking processions, in the prep room, doing printing on the computer, cleaning, washing cars, setting and taking down the same 100 chairs, directing a service at church, getting up at 2am and going to the house, answering phone at 4am, meeting all sorts of families, planting flowers, etc. I love it all. It really gives one a different outlook on life.
Just a thought/joke- I'm sure in your profession you share dark humor of your own...Interesting you don't want to be in life or death situations but once the client kicks it, it's okay. Mortuary science is something I did consider at one time. Unfortunately like law enforcement I got older and had to narrow my options some. But I admire you pursuing a career that is perfect for you!

Most: Anything that is active/helps people. My list involves Military, Cop, Park Ranger, Athletic Trainer, and Physical Education teacher.

Least: Sitting still jobs, I would go mentally insane. Truck Driving sounds horrible to me, as does desk work like being a secretary.
The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant.

Lol at the truck driver comments. I used to always think it seemed cool - you're on your own doing your truck driver thing, checking out the sights. And then last week I drove for 7 hours straight and decided... never mind, that job would suck. I don't mind long drives but OMG your butt starts to hurt and there's nothing you can do about it!

I kind of had an in for a sales rep job..was seriously contemplating it until the guy said it was two weeks of travel a month. There is absolutely no way you can do that with pets, unless you have a dedicated SO. I think I would hate that...I like traveling here and there but I couldn't be away that much.

Actually, I'm happy to say that the job I most want is the natural extension of the one I already have- I want to be an attending psychiatrist at an academic medical center serving a varied and underserved population. i think I can be doing that in a couple of years-so things are pretty good.

Least wanted, Hmmmm....well, i think it was Saturday night Live some years ago that suggested that assistant crack wh*ore was the worst job ever. But I would closely follow that up with a retail or food service job done on concrete floors. Ugh.

Thanks Baxter'smybaby. You're the Best.
