BLOGTOBER | My Dream Job

Hi everyone!!  This is my first day linking up for the Blogtober Challenge over at Helene In Between and I am super excited to meet a ton of new bloggers and learn some new things about bloggers that I've followed for quite a while.  Basically they give you a topic for every day of the month in October and you link up and visit everyone's blogs to check out what they said.  Today's blog prompt is: What was your Dream Job when you were little/ What is it now?



When I was little I wanted to do so many different things...  I swear it changed every single year!  Until I found my love for drawing.  Then I decided that one day I was going to work for Disney and I would help create all of their movies that I loved so much.  I filled sketchpad after sketchpad with Disney princesses, dragons, castles, etc.  I still find myself doodling princesses as I'm trying to come up with a new painting idea...


Nowadays, even tho the little kid in me still has those Disney dreams, I am a little more grounded.  Just a little bit.  I would love to be able to open a cute little art/craft shop and sell my art and have different classes.  I've even had actual dreams about it!  I'm sitting in my shop surrounded by fun crafty things, showing a bunch of people how to start a scrapbook.  Doesn't that sound amazing?!?!  haha maybe not?

But until any of those amazing dreams come true I would be perfectly content as an administrative office assistant in a health or university setting.  To some people it sounds a little boring I guess. But I'm super OCD and loved creating charts for inventory, decorating bulletin boards, etc.  Heck even a part of me actually enjoyed folding the patient bills and stuffing them in envelopes. haha!  I'm a weirdo like that!

How about you?  What is/was your dream?

  2. When I was a kid I wanted to be the cell painters that painted all of the pictures for Disney--then everything went digital and that dream went out the window! I still think it would be amazing to work for Disney--I hope one day you get to--your artwork is beautiful!

    You know what Julie, to open you own cute little art/shop and have different art classes sounds like a brilliant idea. That way you could do something that you love & get paid at the same time. Keeping my fingers crossed for you, that at some point it's becoming reality!

    xo,

  10. WOAH GIRL! You should totally still try to work for Disney. Such an awesome company. I would definitely support a shop! I think it's everyone's dream to work for themselves.

  13. Ok, I still think you should be at least passively pursuing being a Disney artist! I'm sure there are hundreds if not thousands of jobs for those everyday. You sketches and paintings are AMAZING and I think you could totally do it. I think your art studio/classes would also be great! Just doing something with art, something that you love and are passionate about would make every morning exciting because it meant you were able to go to work instead of just HAVING to go. These are great dream jobs :)
