Think of all the good books you get to read
As well as all the bad ones you'd be forced to read.
Of course, maybe you could make those less bad, or better even.
Heh, my idealistic dream job would be a screenwriter, I even have an idea for a tv show, movies, (my dream fantasy was to write true to the book scripts for the entire tolkien legendarium, epic tv mini-series style) and also make computer games (or write their stories and design and pay others to make them). As well as pen a few novels. Sigh, I know, high hopes. I'm even going to school for an associate of arts diploma in creative writing and a film arts screenwriting diploma, but I'm unsure if this is wise because, well, the careerability of such diplomas seems really low.
