other than the obvious ones, some of them work beautifully and some of them do not. all the performance ones, like musician, actor, and comedian all sound like a lot of fun. (although, i *would* be the worst comedian ever, specifically because i'm not very funny.)
all those medical type things, though...optician, dental assistant, dental tech, pharmacist...what? i have no interest in doing anything medical. it all squicks me out.
and picture framer? upholsterer? that high? those jobs just sound so boring.
the only jobs on this list i've ever seriously considered were the lawyer-type jobs. in the past i considered being a physicist, and before that a politician, but i've very steadily renounced both of those paths, and have no desire to follow them anymore. of course, i've batted around the idea of being a musician and being an actor, but never in any serious sense...those are just things i find fun, but know i'm not good enough at for them to be anything more than hobbies, extremely fun ways to spend my spare time.
