    I want something in science

    or music or art or theatre. To be fair ANYTHING is better than my current job even walmart. I'd love to own a bakery someday too.

    I would love to get paid

    for doing arts and crafts! I do not want to work at an arts and crafts store and all. I guess it would be better than nothing though.
