At least, those jobs would be related to activities I enjoy doing
in my spare time these days.
OTOH, I'm not sure it would be a good idea, because every time I
tried to "go professional" with one of my hobbies, it was the end of
it, kind of...
I studied electrical engineering/electronics, mainly because I had
been doing this as a hobby for many years before (in quite a geeky
fashion actually, ever since I had been a little girl — much to the
bewilderment of my environment...). But then I somehow suddenly lost
all interest — even before having finished my degree. And I
haven't touched the field ever since.
- So I studied psychology (something I'd always been interested in), and even worked in the field
(i.e. scientific research) for some time. But then I got more interested in
doing programming full time — which I already had been doing
quite a lot to get my psych. experiments carried out, data evaluated,
reports written, etc.
- So I switched again, and became a programmer/software engineer
— which is what I'm doing for over a decade now. Still
doing it (in part because there is Perl), but who knows... (yes, I still do like hacking in my spare time, too, but it's no longer the same thrill it once was).
