The title of the post is pretty much self explanatory. State what you want your future job to be and why you want that.

Me: I would like to be a partner at a law firm, or hold a position in the government (preferably President, but probably letting ambition do a little too much talking). This is because from an early age, I have always had a keen interest in politics, and I have an argumentative nature. As for being a lawyer, I feel as if it would be an interesting challenge to make cases in the defense of a conflict, or be on the persecuting side.

Tenured professor at the University of Colorado, because I love living in Colorado, you got job security, make more than enough to live well, have high social status, plus I love teaching, and you get to do self-directed research at your own pace, on whatever topics you want.
If you'd like a vote on your debate, please send me a link. I'll do my best to offer a sufficient RFD in your favor.

Also: If you'd like to vote bomb a debate and need help crafting a sufficient RFD, let me know.

But it'll almost certainly never happen. I'm considering going to grad school but it's unlikely.

Honestly, I would mind being a professor at a university. Higher education has always been a goal of mine, and eventually, I would like to maybe enter the teaching profession (later in my career of course).

What you want and what you get are universes apart for the average person. I have had three careers in three completely different fields in my 50 years on this earth. The same will be true for the majority on this site. Your college major will most likely be irrelevant to what you do for a living. But go ahead and respond to the OP.
Beware of the people who are in your circle but are not in your corner.

And with the stroke of a pen people 18 to 21 who own a gun became criminals and public enemy #1 having committed no crime and having said nothing. Just like the Jews in Germany during WW2. Must be a weird feeling.

When I hear people crying and whining about their first world problems I think about the universe with everything in it and people in wheelchairs and all of their problems go away.

I'm interested in too many things. I feel like if I pursue one, than I'm letting the hundred other dreams die. Right now I feel drawn to being a lawyer. A pro bono lawyer that does whatever cases I feel like and lives out of a van.

A prostitute and part-time drug dealer.

So that's two future occupations.

And oh, I've long been interested in being a journalist or perhaps something involved in politics--that could just be a 'side' thing and something to fall back on if the sex and drug work become boring or don't work out as expected.

Oral is $80 extra BTW.
