Thank goodness it’s Thursday– we’re over the hump and weekend is right around the corner! As we trudge through the work week, I can’t help but be jealous by a few TV characters whose jobs seem like nothing but fun. Here are my picks for TV jobs I’d love:
Columnist – Carrie Bradshaw, “Sex and the City”
How do you get to the point where your sex life is so interesting that someone pays you to write about it? I want that life. A personal column is probably any blogger’s dream-come-true, and I am no exception. As a degree-holding writer, I would love this life. And Carrie apparently makes enough money for Manolos, so yeah; I’m down.
Director of Agency Operations – Joan Holloway, “Mad Men”
In a lot of ways, Joan’s role is what I aspire to in my career. She oversees day-to-day operations of the advertising agency, and is an almost omniscient presence. Joan is the keeper of information, the go-to problem solver. She works in an innovative industry, and her input is essential. As a partner in the firm, Joan has real decision making power. Plus, she always looks amazing doing it.
Psychic Detective – Shawn Spencer, “Psych”
The only thing I ever wanted to be growing up was a detective. I particularly like Sean’s brand of [fake] psychic detective, because he does the job without any of the police training and barely any governing authority. Sean pretty much does whatever he wants, and jumps in when a case presents itself thanks to his in with the Santa Monica Police Department. Not a bad gig!
Our jobs may not be this glamourous or easy, but at least tomorrow is Friday!
Whose TV profession would you choose?
