I sit at my desk nearing the end of my day.  This is the time of day I really wish my job provided inspiration to me.  I think of things I am passionate about: singing, dancing, reading, food, exercising, theatre, movies, animals, preventing animal cruelty, etc.  and wonder how I can tie my interests into a fulfilling career.  I am college educated.  I have several years in the workforce, because I worked full time and went to college full time.  Where is my place in the work force.  At this point in my life I find that I am more confused than ever.  I see my husband persuing a career that interests him.  He is passionate about computers and the IT field in general.  Once he completes his certifications he will be in career heaven.  I guess it’s a little bit of jealousy on my part.  Where will my career voyage take me?

This post was inspired by a post on Back in Skinny Jeans.


I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up. July 19, 2008

Certainly not an Inventory Control Manager.  The job itself is not overly difficult.  It’s just no fun.  I mean I can sit for hours and do nothing.  Or I can sort through endless spreadsheets of numbers look at their usage, discount them, and put them on clearance.  I can also do warehouse transfers, create purchase orders, or expedite old purchase orders.  Yeah… I sound so intelligent, so important, so… who gives a flying fuck.  I’m really only holding on through the summer.  I must have a job!  Scott is still in school until October.  I am our only source of income.  And I don’t make a whole hell of a lot!  We’re poor.  Broke.  We have nothing left to use.  No savings, 401ks, not much equity in the house.  I mean our house is a tiny little thing and the market blows big time.

So here is my existence.  My job is neither fulfilling nor does it suit me.  I MUST work because my husband does not.  I have no money, therefore any career change would mean only for a significant pay increase.  Job security is also important, because at least one of us should work-right?  Over the next few months I’ll be researching the types of jobs that interest me.  And how I can get them…  Because now it’s my turn.  Scotty is pursuing his dream job.  I need to know what is mine.

Another one of my everyone else is doing it questions…. To Flickr or not to Flickr. That is the question. Right now I upload to Photobucket, but I am not sure if I should do the ol’ switcherooo. I haven’t uploaded any recent photos. You can be my friend on MySpace if you would like to see some photos. Still contemplating the change…
