I grew up with a dad who is a Legal Drama addict.
After watching Kramer vs. Kramer, I was too.
During our daily walk and talk in the nature, we dreamed about how cool it would be to fight for someone’s right while wearing a slick suit.
Yes, we. Somewhere deep down I felt that dad had still so many dreams he never got the chance to achieve.
Currently I am binge watching Netflix’ Suits.
And again, I regret not becoming a lawyer.
How cool would it be to wear a sophisticated trench coat over that nice dress to work.
Quickly get coffee and lunch on the bagel stand around the corner.
Looking outside the window on the 50th floor, over the New York skyline, when I need inspiration.
And drink something strong after a long day, AT THE FREAKING OFFICE!
Even the excitement of law school while watching Legally Blonde!
I’ve always been a fan of psychological drama’s as well.
While watching Netflix’ Gypsy, I dreamed away in a world where I would by a therapist.
I’d have my practice at home. One with a wooden desk, I’d have one million books and one of those comfy sofa’s.
I’d be able to make my coffee fresh and it would taste goooood.
After watching one episode of ER, I considered becoming a nurse.
Imagine that, working alone side a George Clooney – look a like as a doctor.
I’m melting, aren’t you? 😉
Back to reality. To Sunday evening.
I’m preparing for work.
Making my own lunch box containing rice crackers. “YUM” .
I will prepare a fresh cup of coffee in the morning which I always intend to drink while driving, but never end up doing it. By the time I reach work, it’s cold. Darn it.
When I need inspiration, I look outside, at the parking lot.
I am playing a game of “which car belongs to which colleague?”.
If I look straight forward, I can see the door of the men’s room. Hurray me.
I guess all those movies and series have inspired me, but never pushed me.
I ended following dad’s career choice and studied electrical engineering.
I’ve been called intelligent and smart for making that decision, but I still secretly dream of a job like in the movies 😉
How about you?
Have movies/series influenced your career choice?
Have you ever made a career switch because of something you saw on TV?
