Aspirations Based on Personality

Most of the following ideas require Get to Work, Dine Out, City Living, or LitteMsSam's More Buyable Venues and Venue Types as well as a few of her other mods!  For some of the produce products like the jam making see Icemunmun's creations.

I suggest using Cntrl+F to search by traits and aspirations and then copying and pasting the results into a document so you can look at the options together in one place and narrow them down.
