Chester Gregory III
Something in the non-profit realm

Eventually I want to be churning butter, sheering sheep, spinning wool, harvesting crops and hosting huge harvest/music festivals in a barn-turned-stage. So I guess performing will always be a part of the plan. I'm serious.
I have no idea!
Sarah Uriarte Berry
Wouldn't it be cool to be a professional tennis player? Of course you'd have to be amazing at tennis for that to happen. I guess I need a more realistic Plan B.
I would liked to have been a painter.
Anything having to do with food and drink.
I would want to run a vintage shop that sold things that feel like my Nana.

Doctor. Possibly surgery of some kind, possibly pediatrics, maybe psychiatry. But I think you have to be crazier than me to be a shrink.

I guess I could be happy owning a ranch somewhere with lots of horses. I love them, and I love to ride them.
Outside the arts - I'd go back to school to become a nurse. It's a tough profession, but I'm so proud of my sister. I think I could do it. I couldn't have years ago... but now, I think I could.
I would want a job where I got paid to make random YouTube videos with my friends. That exists, right?
I am so jealous of and fascinated by any writer on a great TV show.
Incidentally, I think this sounds like a great USA television series. Anybody? Who can I meet with about this? She conserves wildlife on week days, fights international crime on week nights and flies to Vegas for the weekend. It's a hit.
