From the time that we were first able to talk, we’ve been asked what we want to be when we grow up. While being astronauts and princesses seemed like the ideal choices as kids, we’ve since then opened our eyes to thousands of more realistic, but just as exciting, possibilities. Below is a list of jobs that lets your inner child shine.
Disney Pixar Animator
With Disney being the heart of so many childhood memories, this would be the perfect job for any cartoon/movie buff. Animators spend their time in a studio creating different scenes and figures that make up every second of movement and dialogue in the movies we see on-screen.
This is a lengthy process that requires you to spend a lot of time behind a computer screen, but there isn’t anything like being the one who brings children’s idols to life with your imagination and creativity.
Water Slide Tester
This career is for the thrill seeker that has a love for adrenaline. These testers spend their days traveling around the world, reliving family vacations filled with memories rushing down extravagant water slides in the warm sun. While this seems like all fun and games, there is an actual purpose behind all the fun: to make sure the slides are safe, stable, and just the right amount of splash for the thousands of families and friends who ride after.
Professional Lego Builder
As children, we can all most likely say that we’ve spent a fair amount of our time in our bedrooms building and stacking Legos as high as our arms could reach. For some, this childhood passion never went away and they made it into a career. These mini-architects get to spend their days creating life life-like objects, people, buildings, and so much more until they can’t feel their fingers!
As for the need of these creations, some are used as centerpieces for large parties or even attractions at big events.
Becoming an adult doesn’t me you have to stop having fun and doing the things that you love. Find a career that you love doing everyday, even if that means you might accidentally step on a Lego on occasion.
