I would probably go to nursing school.  If not that something with computers not sure, maybe graphic designer, software designer…I just LOVE computers and wish I could do more with them.

I’m in marketing…blech. It’s purely a means to an end right now. I would love to, and plan to, get into event planning down the road. Maybe one day I can help some Bees out with their weddings! I also LOVE interior design so that would be great to do as well.

I’ve always dreamed of being involved in forensic science and/or investigations. But I’m horrible with math and mediocre with science so I’m not sure that would work out. 😉

Though I love my job, I sometimes fantasize about being in a more creative field.  I’d love to be an anthropologist or a craftsperson… but sometimes I just fantasize about being a barista and doing a job where I interact with people on a casual basis all day (and I don’t even drink coffee!).

I’m currently a law school admissions counselor: if you decide to go ahead with law school call me, Mr. Bee!

I would love to plan weddings or work on Capitol Hill again, but I still don’t know what I want to "bee" when I grow up!

  • Wedding: October 2007 - a beautiful church and hotel reception

I like my job, but if money were not an option, I would be in dance classes all day (ballet, jazz, hiphop & tap)  That would be my DREAM which is slowly sucking away as I get older and less limber!

Oh Mr. Bee- you do not want to go to law school. Why would you want to torture yourself for 3 years? (Semi-kidding)

I like law, but if I had to choose something else I would be a newspaper reporter because that was my first true passion, a librarian, or a teacher because I love kids and think I could get them to have fun and learn at the same time.

I love marketing and communications but often wish I was working in either fashion or publishing instead of software.

I work in Human Resources, but have come to realize with the job market as it is, I will probably need to accept whatever comes at me when I move.

If I had my way, I would either be in journalism or go to law school, so I guess we have similar dreams, Mr Bee!

Latte – I’m in HR too … I really thought it was what I was going to want to do, but it’s definitely not!  I would love to own and run a pre-school/day care program.  I am seriously considering going back to school within the next few years.

  • Wedding: September 2009 - Rancho Bernardo Inn

I love psychology and therapy, but I thought about wedding planning for a long time.  I’m getting to fulfill some of those dreams now, probably why I have way too many ideas.

I would be a party planner 🙂 I’ve always wanted to do it… you know I still might.

I want to work with dogs.  Not really sure what I would do exactly (groomer, trainer etc) but I’m working on it 🙂

I’m currently in law school… (oh Mr. Bee… are you absolutely sure you want to be here? )

But if I could do something different… I would go toward writing, photography, or teaching English or French. I guess I would want to do something more creative.
