Of Nancy Binay and Dream Jobs

After the fast but rather disappointing turnout of 2013 election results, a lot of jokes and memes have gone viral in the world of social networking sites. And the most prevalent are Nancy Binay's.  And of course, following the memes, Nancy Binay wasn't able to get away with name verbing. Remember "i-Dawn Zulueta mo ako", or "na-Janine Tugonon si ganito"? this time, we have
Upon seeing this, I just remembered- I have big dreams, jobs to be exact, that I would love to achieve but just like Nancy Binay, I also lack experience. The difference is, I don't have to spend a single taxpayer's cent.

But I won't talk about the elections, or Binay's win and her lack of background and experience, or how I think she'll screw up in the incoming years. I've had enough of that. There's nothing more I can do but to pray and hope for the best. Today, I'll talk about my dream jobs. Jobs I know I have the heart for but never had the real hands-on experience.

 Here goes (in no particular order):

Dream Job #1: Be part of Disney Pixar Studios
For what position? I don't know. I just want to be part of the team. I know little to nothing on animation or filmmaking, or whatever's behind the scene of every Pixar film. But hey, I can learn. I was a BS-Nursing graduate and I ended up being a web designer and have also coded/developed a lot of websites. Point is, I can learn. And yes, I can dream on.
Can I?

Dream Job #2: Sports Unlimited Host or something like that
Dyan Castillejo's Job. Yeah, I've always wanted her job. Athletic and adventurous as she is, that's just me. Hosting won't be a problem, as I've done a thousand of reporting in front of our class before. I got a lot of training eh? Hahaha. But really, who wouldn't love this job? Traveling and venturing on new and adrenaline-pumping activities? Not to mention they pay you while doing it. I'd kill a fly with my bare hands to get the spot.
Shameless confession you don't really need to know but I'll tell you anyway: I have auditioned to be part of a late night travel show Trip na Trip. Spent the whole week trying to send my email application (with video), but it gets bounced all the time. Not for me. hahaha

Dream Job #3: Wildlife Biologist
I am not just a dog person. Ever since I was born I already have a soft spot for animals. I always get fascinated with them. I think they're even smarter and have more heart than most people. I've always wanted to understand them. I love animals.

This is why I am so thankful mom bought me those big books of animals when I was a kid. This is why I watch Animal Planet and NatGeo whenever I have the chance (note: I grew up without a cable tv and I'd kill for the remote). This is why I never get sick of watching animal documentaries and small clips in Youtube even though I've watched them a gazillion times. This is why I always perk up whenever we visit the zoo or an animal sanctuary. This is why I would like to get a chance to be in the place of Tippi Degre, the real life Mowgli, even just for a day.

If money is not an issue (a dire need at that), I may have become a zookeeper here or maybe a vet.

These are the jobs that I have no formal study or training whatsoever. Jobs that I want, triggered only by passion. Realistic albeit almost close to impossible for me to attain. I do have realistic and attainable goals in life, but daydreaming once in a while wouldn't be so bad, right?

We all have dreams. We all want something, we're just uncertain because we know we lack experience and confidence. But we can always dream, and try, and fail, and try again. (Just don't do it at the expense of the public and the taxes they're paying. Just don't.)

I love my current job and I'm very happy with it right now. But if one of my dream jobs gets delivered right at my feet, there's no doubt that I'll grab it whatever the odds may be. Who knows? Maybe I'll be lucky. Looking into the bright side, maybe I have a Nancy Binay to thank. ;)

How about you? What is your dream job? I know you have one. :)

  7. I can definitely relate with #1. I'm one of the guys who imagine something they want to draw and it's great but when my hands go to work, it ends up looking like a 3 year old used his feet to draw.

    A Billionaire Cowboy Astronaut - yeah, that's probably a job I could work with. Saddle up horses by day, pick up martian rocks at night. :D

    1. It doesn't matter how our drawings will look like. We just need more practice. And I'd go with the Billionaire and Astronaut ;)
