c) Something dressy—you like to look your best!

Mostly A's: A blogger! You're on top of all the happenings on The Internets. You're pretty social, and you'd be great at a job where you get to do exactly what you're already doing: surfing the web when you're bored and sharing all your wacky opinions with your pals. You are a guru, and the internet needs you.

Mostly B's: A librarian! You enjoy reading so much, you'll make a career out of it. You love organization and would be perfectly happy to spend the rest of your days ordering and re-ordering all of your best friends: books.

Mostly C's: An actuary! People thinks it's a bit weird and morbid, but you love to think about the possible negative outcomes of every possible situation. It's...calming. After all, it's fun to predict the future! You're a math whiz, and even though you're a bit quirky, you're rather put-together when you want to be.

Mostly D's: A veterinarian! You have a heart for animals...even the weird (or deranged) ones. You can't help wondering what's going on in their peanut-sized brains, and you'd love to make it your life's work to study them. At least then you'd have an excuse for bringing all those stray cats home.

Mostly E's: The local creep! Technically, this isn't a job. But you're weird! (And not in the good, unique-individual type of way). Your strange and unsettling hobbies make you the perfect replacement for that guy who wanders around the neighborhood humming to himself and grinning creepily. We're not sure what he does, but we guess you'll find out.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
