Title: The Longed-for Occupation Personality: Chiy Chiy
We are broadcasting [this program] with the topic “longing” today. Yes. When we talk about longed-for occupations, there are many from the old days. When I looked it up before, when it comes to the longed-for occupations for children, wasn’t it something like a cake shop owner or a pastry chef? Yeah, or something like a florist, or of course if they’re a boy, something like an athlete? Yeah, those kinds of things are listed*1 . They wanted to become something like an entertainer, or a police officer. They wanted to become something like a nurse, or a childcare…a nursery school teacher*2. They wanted to become something like a doctor or a scholar, or a scientist. Hey, I think there were various kinds, weren’t there? Yeah then, now what kind of things are popular I wonder? I wondered what kinds of occupations or longed-for occupations there are. So I’ve briefly looked it up.

Notes: Japanese Grammar and Vocabulary

1. 「ズラーっと」 is a Japanese onomatopoeia which indicates several or many things listed in a row. You can see some images via this result of Google image search.

2. With this phrase, 「いくさん、いくさんになりたい」, she wanted to say 「いくさん」, but she made a mistake and corrected herself.
