    I plan on working for a Canadian company in technology for 10 years where I will be well respected and liked by everyone that I work with. Then that company will sell me off to another lesser company where I have to start from the bottom and get treated like crap.



    Oh wait.......That actually happened.

    porn....

    Now, I'm not necessarily saying as an actor in it. then again, I'm also not necessarily saying as a job either ....

    Actually though I've been chasing a 2nd degree in paleontology for a while now. Every time I get close something happens and it's yanked away from me. This last time I got out to another province to go to classes and half way through the year I was informed that the professor who ran the program actually had died a couple years ago and they hadn't updated their program guides yet

    That sounds like a great plan.

    Let's hope the future of the auto industry agrees with you, since Toyota has been laying off workers (and in Japan, since Toyota provided housing, it means your home) for the first time in company history. I'm sure Honda has done the same, but only Toyota was in the news for it.

    Not to be "that guy" but I went to art school and about 90 percent of the people I graduated with, never landed an art job. And that was 12 years ago. With today's economy people are gonna be damn lucky getting jobs that they went to school for you. But I give you props for having a dream, and don't let me stop you from trying to achieve it. When i was a youngin' I always wanted to drive big rigs.

    You forgot to include get elected President.

    My post graduate school plans is going to consist of teaching elementary/JRHS/HS. Something I swore that I'd never do, but now I need a long break and some time in a real job before getting my PHD.

    I absolutely detest school after being in it for so long.

    In six weeks or so, I'm heading back to the Army full time as a PA. Sixteen years of that and I'll be eligible for a pension around the age of 44.

    Then, I dunno. May just do agency work half the year, may do more international medicine. Lots of football watching and Transformers collecting for sure, though.

    After I get my Bachelors in Criminal Justice with a minor in Theater arts, I plan on starting out as a cop for a few years and then transitioning to CSI.

    Oh yeah, and if I do get a chance to act professionally, I'm jumping ship.

    After I get out of this school in December, I'm going to (hopefully) move to Las Vegas and get a job as an auto tech at a dealership. Then I'm going to get a house as soon as I can and start doing auto upholstery as a side job out of my garage. Then, once I get my name out in that business, I'll quit working at the dealership and do upholstery full time and flip cars to make some extra cash.

    I'm heading to Australia in May for law school, after that I intend to do a Masters in law, and then practice law, hopefully making enough to take a few months off every few years to do cycling, hiking, and backpacking trips.

    Seems a bit vague. You should make your plans more defined and solid.

    I'm just finishing off my double major in English literature and theater studies, then I'm going to spend the rest of my life trying to sell my movie scripts to production companies while waiting tables part time.

    I am aiming to get a Master's in Literature.
    After watching a friend lose her mind a few times and still has 3 years left on her Ph.D, i doubt that will be something i want.

    I want to teach at college level and have time for visits to Canada to see friends.

    I knew there was a reason I liked you. You're awesome.

    But I do want to go to college and work on a major in something along the lines of dentistry or orthodontics.

    I'm working on my Master's in Library and Information Science. When I graduate (assuming that I will) I expect that I will continue to be a miserable failure. It will be awesome.
