I realized I never posted about my ideal career, even though that’s a pretty hot item right now in my life.
I’m a very analytical person. I like to get to the bottom of things, I like to fact- check, and I just like to know why things are the way they are. Luckily, I completed a study where I have learned how to do exactly this. My ideal career would therefore be in the data- analysis field. The type of data I want to analyse doesn’t really matter to be that much, although I would ideally prefer performing analysis on data from a sector that I understand. I have been brushing up on my analysis skills lately, and I just know that I would be good at doing that. And that’s important to me, I need to be good at what I do.
My ideal job would also be one that would allow me to have a flexible schedule. Even though I love riding the train, love observing people while doing that and love quietly reading on the train while drinking coffee etc, working from home gives you the freedom to do other things while working. Like exercising at home, or doing some light housekeeping. Just those little things that you can do to break the monotony of sitting behind a desk, that would have a direct positive impact on my life. I feel I would be a lot more productive this way.
I would like to be intellectually stimulated by my work. I don’t want to just “do” things. No. I want to help think about how we’re going to “do”, and where we want to end when we’re doing what we’re doing. I’m not afraid of difficult tasks. I would love to be the one that’s able to complete those.
And of course my ideal career is one that pays well! I’m not going to lie..lol. Who doesn’t want a fat pay check! It’s not the most important thing, that would be me wanting to be good at what I do. But getting paid so that I can live a comfortable life is also important.
Now that’s my main career. I would ultimately either start working for myself while doing data analysis, or transform my other hobby, genealogy and history into either my main career, or a very profitable side hustle.
And now, off to make it happen!

I can resonate with everything you have said! My field of study also requires me to be analytical and to be observant. I am about to graduate next year and also find myself in the same predicament as you! Hope everything has worked out and that you’re either in your dream job or one step closer

I just read my post again, and I must say that about 95% has come to fruition. It wasn’t easy! But it happened. A couple of months after writing this post I landed a job within my field of study, just 2 or 3 weeks before I was going to give up and move back to my home country. It didn’t pay that well at first, but I just pushed through and made sure to give 110% percent. That hard work paid off, and I have been promoted, and make enough now to live comfortably and save. Also, I’m allowed to do my own thing at my own pace (also listed in the post). It really has worked out! I hope things work out for you, too!
