Learn a Tradeskill

In response to If I Had a Hammer.

If you could learn a trade — say carpentry, electrical work, roofing, landscaping, plumbing, flooring, drywall — you name it — what skill(s) would you love to have in your back pocket?

I would love to be a gardener.  Being locked up in an office all day is not natural, but it sure does pay the bills.  If money or good benefits weren’t an issue – I would switch to an outdoor, physically active job in a heart beat.  Jobs I’ve considered in the past include gardening or landscaping (but I only like the planting & planning part).

Here’s a good fantasy job for me – alchemist.  I play fantasy games and alchemy is a popular crafting aspect of many games.  It would be interesting to roam the land for fresh supplies and craft a variety of potions.

Fantasy doesn’t pay the bills or provide good benefits though.

Guess I’ll stick with my office job after all!  At least my cube city is not as bad as this!!!
