- Air Hostess
I love travelling in planes. I don’t know why. And I envied the air-hostesses who would get paid to be pretty and travel in aeroplanes and visit new places. A lot of people still tell me I’d be good as an air-hostess……
This is preposterous considering how I cannot speak and have no idea how to act and how self-conscious I am about myself. Oh, and I used to think there’d be elections for becoming an actor/ress and you had to advertise and have campaigns and stop working after a certain age. I was a weird kid with an overactive imagination. (Still am.)
- Librarian/Book Shop owner
Sitting in a place surrounded by books? Which book nerd would not fantasize about that?
- A Baby-sitter, but for cats
I still wouldn’t say no if someone pays me to look after their cats.
I’ll still consider this, but guess the field is too saturated
6. Human Rights Lawyer
Two words: Amal Alamuddin
A feasible option had it not been for my social and verbal awkwardness and a tendency to forget words whenever I open my mouth.
9. Child Psychologist
This was actually a mature idea, before I realized that half the time I had no idea how I felt and I had to tolerate the smirks and stupid statements (“Guess what I’m thinking about right now. Read my mind. Oh come on, you’re a psychologist, you should know all this”) Also I can’t relate to kids. I find them annoying. Also this is out of question now since Psychology isn’t one of my subjects.
10. Forensic Researcher
Too much of watching crime solving TV shows. Also, darling, working in chemistry? May I remind you of your marks in high school?
I like History. I like Geography.
12. Foreign Diplomat
Ooohh. Sounds amazing. But the civil services exam is difficult to crack. And even tougher to get into the top 2% considered for foreign relations. And the IFS exam is even difficult to crack. And you’ll have to work in India for the first few years. And getting into bureaucracy?
This is still a pretty good option. I’m good at languages.
14. Image Consultant
don’t even ask. I thought it meant validating people and nothing rocket-science about that.
This has always been hovering on my sub-conscience. I mean, I’m good at writing, I keep up with current affairs, I have an opinion on every matter imaginable. So I could roll with it. Grateful for going to college in a time when mass media is considered cool and the stigma associated with a ‘media professional’ has lessened. Just hope I don’t wildly change my career track over the next 3 years.
