I have my dream job, I am a Physiotherapist. I spend my days helping people who are injured or have a disability or illness achieve the best quality of life possible. The satisfaction I get from helping someone walk again or recover from surgery or even just be able to live an independent life is huge.

I used to work as a Paramedic which I loved, but years of dealing with trauma cases day after day started to severely affect my mental health, this combined with the difference an excellent Physio made to my life after a near fatal motorcycle accident prompted me to retrain and change my career path.

I've never had a "dream job", and often wondered... is that normal to not have a "dream job"? Are there more people like me who are like "meh, whatever, as long as it pays the bills"? -- I'm exaggerating a bit. I do have a list of criteria for a 'good job' vs a 'bad job', but there is a large variety of jobs that would fit into the 'good job' category.

A dream job is a job that sounds exciting to you and something you want to achieve. To me, "paying the bills" is like the extra part, it's a part that is of course needed but I wouldn't get a boring job with good money when I could look for/ achieve a great job with the same amount. Think about a job that excites you (or multiple) and put it in a list and I guess you could call those your dream jobs because those are the jobs you wish to have.

I want to be an Air Force Pilot, but I don't know if I can because my vision's at the point that I'd have to get surgery and if you get eye surgery that isn't under the air force's sanction, you would never be able to fly for the air force. My more reasonable option is to get into the Air Force Academy and be a biophysical/biochemical engineer because they help people a lot more than you'd think, and they don't have that many women in there.

We'd also provide an array of services like job skills training, parenting classes, a shelter for women & children, tutoring for school age kids, etc. I want to do this because it absolutely infuriates me that there are so many children - and adults - suffering for lack of affordable childcare, and so many people think they're just "lazy" and looking for a "hand-out." Having reliable, affordable childcare is literally a life changer for a lot of people. And so is having somewhere safe to go if you're in danger but have no money to support yourself.

If you're young enough, you'll probably be able to buy a trip into space for a reasonable fee so you don't need to be an astronaut, but I think you have little chance of seeing any planet besides maybe mars. Though I wouldn't count on space being "silent", you'll always be surrounded by machinery that's keeping you alive, even in a spaceship you'll hear fans and other sounds from your suit.
