I have a job in the computer security industry.
I own 5 acres outside of seattle
I am starting a permaculture food forest and currently grow all of my vegetables during the summer and some of them during winter and in a few years I will grow all of my fruit!
Yes I have a job in telecommunications. I am fairly passionate about my career - but it is not my 'life dream'. In ~10 years I hope to retire to S. Florida and grow my own fruit/vegs with my beautiful wife !!!
im a heavy machinery mover and professional photographer... have been for 8 years now. only 25, but i see myself doing this forever... im pretty much my own boss
I currently teach ballroom dancing part-time and have been very active in the Occupy Movement since October 7. Right now, I'm deciding whether or not to go back to college. I think we have the technology to grow tropical fruit trees almost anywhere in the world so I'd like to work on developing that technology so that it's more convenient to be a fruitarian. I think it's called biomimicry. Here's a youtube video on it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3QZp6smeSQA
For me, it's not so much about being passionate about a particular job, but about being passionate about helping to improve our society and culture. I believe we can make life much more wonderful for human beings and life on this planet by restructuring our values and institutions. So I would encourage people not to feel like they must conform to our current society's expectations, but rather, continue to follow their own curiosity and do whatever we find enjoyment in doing.
Lol Josh I could've copy your reply..

As far as passion goes, I wouldn't be doing the things I enjoy without it. I mean, who needs motivation when you're having fun AND working hard? ;)
