It is lazy to only work 3 days a week, it just is. It has nothing to do with being "career oriented".

It doesn't even matter, you won't get the job you want. The real world will stop your from being such an unproductive dolt.
Stop being so negative, it's her life, her decision.

Well no, she won't even get what she wants. It isn't actually her decision, the real world will make the decision for her.

How about working in the leisure industry in some way? Perhaps working at an outward bounds centre or paintballing place etc.

I find it so funny when people tell other people they won't get it/won't do it. :rolleyes:

But whatever...

I think it's more fun to be a dreamer. I have always wanted to be an astronaut. I know the odds are slim to none but I'm going to go for it. One day, the harsh reality will probably hit me in that I don't have a chance but I'd rather be (overly) ambitious and risk failure and disappointment than live life assuming it's not possible or it's not worth the risk.

The fact is, it's only people like that who actually get in to those jobs. The people who are in 'the real world' mindset - no doubt the stereotype you might see in economics - will live perfectly average lives most of the time.

Sure, not every person aspiring to reach space will get there but they have a better chance than the guy who laughed at everybody who tried.

£15k with no health insurance or pension provision is going to ruin you in the coming century. Personally I would suggest you become a tradeswoman, or else have an arty job-hobby and marry a rich husband*.

*something men aren't allowed to do, by the way

How are you going to do this?

And no, most people who get good jobs they enjoy are realistic.

You want a step-by-step?
In short: finish studying physics degree, graduate entry medicine, armed forces doc, specialise in space medicine after service, apply to space agency as a mission specialist (doctor)

Actually I've read a few articles on this: one notable one was by a yale professor (I can't remember the name but I'll go search for it). If you have anything to back your claims then I'd love to see it. In the mean time, I'll keep trying to hunt it down. Just because you've rationalised your settling that doesn't mean you have to discourage everyone else :nah:

Was going to post something along the lines of 'the real world is hard yo, buck up', but unsurprisingly, after 7 pages, someone's already said it.

You sound like a painfully boring, uncreative, corporate drone. Enjoy the rat race.

I'm not going lie you're going to be hard pushed to find a job that fits all the criteria, especially the 3 day a week job that pays 20k, but how about hairdresser or makeup artist?

On the flipside, people who pursue their dreams with a lot of hard work, perseverance and dedication will get somewhere, even if it's not their absolute dream. And when they've got to that somewhere, they might actually decide 'yeah, I like it here, hell, I LOVE IT HERE!'. It's all about the effort man.

Absolutely. I was giving a worst-case to try and make my argument as fair as possible.

With no dis-respect to the OP, the only work that provides that kind of income and is realistic is working in the Adult entertainment or drug industries whilst meeting your specifications.
