your dream job

this is going to sound silly, but I've always wanted to be a bartender

(it's silly because I don't drink)

how would I go about this? is there like a legitimate school or something

also I guess post whatever job you've always wanted, that niggling little thought in the back of your head, kind of like cusack's list from high fidelity(which is a great movie[oh man I need to remember and get it on dvd some day])

    There are bartending schools but it's not like you have to get a degree in mixed drinks to be a bartender

    When I was growing up I always wanted to be a rollercoaster designer because I was obsessed with them.. Then I realised how much maths / physics I'd have to do and stuck with making monstrosities with Rollercoaster Tycoon..

    ..Now I look at some of the neat stuff that comes out of Disney's design department and I wish I was an Imagineer.

    I guess six months after starting a job directly related to my degree I want to do something completley different..

    You memorize the basic measurements of liquids when mixing drinks (jiggers) and familizarize yourself with basic drinks. Then you buy a large compendium of esoteric drinks for that guy who always comes in and orders a drink only manufactured on Neptune, in a frat, on a dare, like that one time, and it's got like vermouth maybe dude shit I got so drunk that time.

    after making my fortune i think itd be pretty neat to buy some quiet basement bar or cafe

    like a chilled place for people to sit and hang out but without ever getting crowded

    most of the customers could be regulars

    and forget cocktails. the regulars drink only beers and whiskey on ice
    maybe keep a couple of bacardi breezers under the counter for when they bring along a friend or somethin

    Whippy there are a bunch of bartending schools and stuff, look around for one in your area

    but if you don't think, then uh... i dunno, a bartender who doesn't drink would be a kind of neat novelty. but dealing with drunks all the time is probably not a whole ton of fun. unless you're drunk. then it's great.

    i want to be a rock star

    well, metal star

    I watched a movie on like.. MaxAzN last night. 16th Century Japanese Warlords using guns that weren't invented until 200 years later. It was pretty rad.

    Anachronisms almost make me want to read "A Conneticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court." The title is too long though. That Twain.

    Radio DJ. The whole getting new music first and being involved in music in general appeals to me (and my lack of talent at anything musical).

    In reality I'll probably teach or do tech support.

    Alternatively, I wanted to be an airforce pilot, but the recruiter said "no" because I am left-handed.

    Hilariously enough, one of my high school teachers was an ex-Jaguar pilot and lef-handed. But by then it was too late.
