Construction, Mechanics, Architectural Drafting, Car Sales, School Counseling, Choreographing, Landscaping, Advertising/Promotions, Beatmaking, Chef/Baking, Art Directing, Financial Advising, Mail Carrying, Graphic Designing, Writing, Radio Disc Jockeying, Sculpting, Sketching, Travel Agents, Screenwriting, Barbers, English/Art Teaching, Carpentry, Surfing, Baseball Playing, Firefighting, and Private Investigating. Some of the above I would’ve liked to done myself or see a partner do.
The ones that don’t appeal as much to me are usually quite risky or travel a lot or may be a bit unsanitary or slightly annoy me or are overall just workaholics. So preferably no doctors, nurses, historians, travel guides, truck drivers, video game developers, janitors, miners, models, cruise captains, park rangers, pharmacists, psychiatrists, photographers, musicians, actors, social media influencers, professional gamers, bankers, lawyers, cops, butchers, politicians, military men, athletes (with the exception of the coach), pilots, flight attendants, garbage men, astronauts, zoologists, scientists, astrologists, therapists, vets, farmers, and accountants. Of course, I’m thankful for anyoe having a job in general and sometimes I’m even thankful for what they do for others, but that doesn't mean I’d want to date someone with that profession.
Most Helpful Opinions
I'm definitely a workahaulic in both art and science, but to me that feels like play, not work.
Apealing careers are:
Game and software lead developer/game director.
Video game historian.
Toy and custom collectable maker.
Wildlife reference book writer and artist.
Music composer for instrumental pieces.
Genetic engineer who brings back extinct wildlife or creates custom pets.
Exotic wildlife veterinarian.
Exotic wildlife breeder.
Park ranger for areas containing megafauna.
Electronic device repairman.
Electronic device parts manufacturer.
Head chef at a family owned restaurant.
My dream job doesn't exist yet though, it would be what Dr. Wu does in Jurassic Park, only without making stupid choices that cause the park to be overrun.
Why would you want to be a workaholic at all?
There isn't a why, I simply enjoy creating things, practicing and improving skills, and having lots of stuff to do and things to experience. I'm also an adrenaline junky, and I also view good art in high variety levels as a sort of feel good drug, so I'm compelled to always make more art.
Relaxing stresses me out, I'd rather be making stuff, learning stuff, honing a talent, or playing a game.
When I'm relaxing and doing nothing, I just feel a sense of deprivation, like I'm being starved of enjoyment. The right kind of work is my playtime.
I only consider it to be a “workaholic” if a person does it for money and ignores spending quality time with others to do it. So yours sounds more like a longterm hobby/interest
It's hobbies to earn money with, but I'd do them money or not.
As far spending quality time with others, those hobbies are what I consider to be quality time, so anyone I'm friends with or date/marry would be doing them as well, or they aren't the right people for me.
As far as it not being a workahaulic, well when you are up at 3am with a spur of the moment idea, and you gotta finish it before sleeping, I think that counts.
