Career Choices

So, I currently work for a nonprofit. I won’t be doing this particular job forever, and lately I’ve been thinking about what my career options are. I’ve come up with a few:

Ok, I don’t know why I thought dance was an option. Hmm, I’m kind of handy.

I did not think that one through. Next!

I have a thing about pulses…I don’t know.

I don’t see a  downside here.

What’s your dream job?


  1. You definitely don't want to be a ballerina, haven't you see Black Swan? Something about dancing on your tip toes makes you go coocoo bananas. I love that your image of a plumber is Mario. Well done. I'd like to be a professional...well, crap, I don't know, maybe that's why I'm stuck bouncing from menial job to menial job.

  2. Gia, Gia, Gia. You've simply got to think these things through. You think zombie sluts are bad? What about all those creepy princess stalkers that come out of the woodwork when your father holds a contest to marry you off? Do you really want to be giving a frog some tongue in the hopes of getting a prince?

  3. I'd like to humbly suggest to your princess-ness that you need to dream bigger. Princesses are a dime a dozen, but Queens are rare and magical-- and don't necessarily have to dress in frumpy clothes. In fact, you could be the first stylish Queen of the century and rule the world because of it. It'd be fun.

  4. The Disney Movie- The Princess Protection Program-- comes to mind. Though, I'm not sure why. Because princess?

  5. Hahahaha! I love your illustrations Gia. My dream job? School librarian. What? September through June I'd be at work. July and August I'd be at the beach!! I would have said teacher but I don't think I'd survive the little darlings.

  6. Sleeping Beauty: That's my dream job. I guess I'll need an IV and a catheter, though. You never hear about that part in fairy tales.


    1. but she can sing like birds and has lips red as the rose... that's gotta count for something.

  7. I'm living my dream job. I just wish someone would have told me that my dream job doesn't actually make much money. So does writer count as "non-profit"? I haven't made any profit at all yet. (hyuck hyuck)

    Also, doctor sounds like a fun job until you realize you have to fish through people's gross insides. It's almost like a plumber, minus the plunger.

  8. Princess is definitely the perfect career for you, just sayin'

  9. My dream jib is to just go around punching people who are stupid in the junk... And also napping on a beach.

    I might be drunk right now. Please don't judge me.

    I also want to kill zombies for a living.



  10. I have the same thing with being a doctor. My mum used to say, "why don't you study medicine?" Erm, I literally can't take my own pulse without throwing up. It makes me feel all shivery and disgusted.

    My dream job is to be a dinosaur bone hunter (real job title, totally not making it up).
