I would definitely be a meteorologist. I love keeping track of the weather and would love storm chasing.

Best thing to do in Nebraska if you only had one day?
I would visit the world famous Omaha Zoo and grab lunch in the Benson area of Omaha. I would follow that up with a free massage in a $6000 massage chair in Nebraska Furniture Mart.  Then, I would explore Old Market in downtown Omaha in the evening and end the day with ice cream from Ted & Wally's.

Boating at Fremont Lakes with my classmates.
