Nate's Career Test

Growing up, my parents always told us that they didn't care if we grew up to be garbage men, as long as we were the best garbage men we could be. In school, Nate took a career test. His results, in order of their fit were:
  1. Boxer
  2. Model
  3. Fashion Designer
  4. Garbage Man
  5. Hockey Player
  6. Big Time Wrestler
  7. Nuclear Physicist
  8. Football Agent
  9. Soccer Player
  10. Maid
Nate brought the instructions home and we were able to try it out. Maddie took the same test and ended up with the following:
  1. Venture Capitalist
  2. Film Director
  3. Documentary Producer
  4. Orchestra Conductor
  5. Music Video Producer
  6. Website Designer
  7. Art Appraiser
  8. Choreographer
  9. Investment Banker
