More Britons dream about becoming an author than any other job, according to a new survey.
A YouGov poll has found that almost 10% of Britons aspire to being an author, followed by sports personality, pilot, astronaut and event organiser on the list of most coveted jobs.
More women than men yearn to write, while those aged between 35 and 50, and those over 50 were most likely to dream about getting published. The under-35s were most keen on becoming a sports personality.
First of all...event organizer? Honestly? Sure, that's honorable work, but I had no idea people considered it such a glam job. And I'm assuming that by "sports personality," the Brits mean a popular professional (read: rich) athlete and not one of those play-by-play guys on TV.
Apparently, young British men dream of being Beckham, and middle-aged British women dream of being J.K. Rowling. Are we really surprised?
That "event organiser" thing, though.... That one's got me wondering.
