Well I always wanted to do something with science/ math, and right now I have a degree in GIS, and I work for the government updating the TIGER/BAS system (google maps, yahoo maps etc.). I want to eventually study Theoritical Physics, as a hobby probably, and in all likelyness I will get another degree in Petroleum Engineering (what I am looking into now, money is great).

Law School Profesors dont work in the summer...unless they teach a summer course which most do not.

They also make more then enough money to survive and have most likely made their share of money already in the private sector

i know it might sound lame but growing up i always wanted to be a hotel manager in orlando or a warm place like that. but right now i wanna be an indie film actor and with the filming going on right now in michigan, it can damn well be possible, the hard part would be making a living in that tho.

To each their own...but law school profesors that decide to write do a great deal of research and craft notes etc. for journals...

the legal theories that they come up with influence judicial decisions and the law that runs this country...but I guess that's not "real"?

Realistically I would really love to act or do some kind of modeling. Not like runway modeling but just ads like the ones in magazines and sh*t. I still might try to do them both at some point

edit: also Zoology, that's what i was gonna go into when i started college but I'm not good enough at math/science to make it through that program

I wanna run a fish taco stand in San Diego...by the beach. That'd be so rad.

I'd call it, "Supernova."

It's named after an Oasis song.

"Champagne Supernova."

It's a pretty catchy name that I think people would remember or think, "damn. that's a badass name. Anybody with a badass name like that must have some badass fish tacos. Let's go there."

oh hell yea. I remember in like 2nd or 3rd grade I would draw comics of myself as a superhero that i made up and one day my teacher saw them and thought it was the most creative ish ever so she COMPLETELY throws me to the wolves and asks me to explain my superhero to the class on the spot. Most awkward moment of my 8 year life
