Writer's Block: If I had a hammer

As a child, did you feel like you were you expected to pursue a certain type of career? How did this make you feel? Did you wind up choosing a different profession or path?

Oh yeah.   I was "encouraged" to be either a hairdresser/cosmetologist or a nurse.

Nurse b/c of the "job security" and we all know what has happened to that in the last couple of decades, right?

So first I was a mechanic, then various unskilled jobs, then a factory where I got OJT to run certain very specific machines that don't translate well to other manufacturing plants...finally got my license as a massage therapist after two separate schools (y'all know the story on the first one, right?), and currently taking calls in a call center.


And there'll likely be another career change or two if I'm to believe the "statistics".

Adopt one today!  Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!
