    Why Lawyer guys? Can you explain what's good about it?
    In comparison to Hitman and the Prime Minister of Poland ? Very little. One could argue "safety" but I never valued safety, stability and conformity.

    It's probably the fact that I'm studying law @ LSE and on the contrary to many opinions, I imagine this job to be a lot less difficult and demanding than some people credit it for.

    Unrealistic dream job: Architect, sadly I can't draw to save my life and I am not creative at all so I can't see it ever happening. I think i've just been watching too many episodes of Grand Designs.

    Childhood: Actress/Singer. This was before I realised I would be terrible.

    Unrealistic: A writer, novels or plays. That'd be perfect for me, but unfortunately we all know hard it is to get good pay from it.

    Thinking about academia - the only thing I really know I want to do is study History, so perhaps carrying on into a PhD, lecturing in it, doing research on it etc. would be my thing. But that kind of looks like a 'dream career' type thing atm, I hate to imagine how expensive and competitive that would be. Otherwise, no clue

    No I couldn't be doing with all that crouching up and down. When I was a kid I wanted to be the new Angus Fraser.

    Childhood dream job: Never really decided on one, it varied from being an actress to a vet to a writer (all I would NEVER consider now).

    Realistic dream job: Anything to do with social work- such as a counsellor, police detective, social worker, probation officer ect.

    Unrealistic dream job: A top psychiatrist.

    Unrealistic dream job: Water slide tester (yes, that is a real job) by day, porn start by night.
    This is supposed to be a really unpleasant job for both genders!!! The male actors don't get paid as much, there is pressure to perform, and apparently they end the day in quite a lot of pain down there. No thanks!!

    I really to understand the term 'Unrealistic' and why it is so commonly used.

    Nothing's 'Unrealistic', if you want it, go for it, work hard. Don't quit. If you quit You'll never know....
