I Guess I'm a Little Confused

Careers I have seriously considered, am still considering, or have pursued:

  1. Early Childhood Education Teacher
  2. College History, English, or Theology Professor
  3. Artist
  4. Graphic Designer
  5. One of those people who sets up the window displays at Barnes and Noble
  6. Editor
  7. Singer/Songwriter
  8. Recording Artist
  9. Just plain writer
  10. Tattoo Artist
  11. Owner of a Flower Shop
  12. Chef
  13. Race Car Driver
  14. Stunt Car Driver
  15. Climb Everest (OK, it's not really a career, but I've always wanted to do it)
  16. Mountaineering Expedition Leader?
  17. Interior Designer
  18. Stay at Home Mom
  19. Model
  20. Astronomer
  21. Cosmetologist
  22. Massage Therapist
  23. Psychologist
  24. Missionary (to someplace in Asia/South America)
  25. Clothing Designer
  26. Any job at Google (I'm always trying to figure out if there's a way to make this happen because it would be SO GROOVY to work at Google.)
  27. Fitness Trainer
  28. Bartender

Lack of direction, much? I have no idea what I want to do. Number 18 is the only one I'm entirely sure about.

Here are a few jobs that I don't think I would be good at:

  1. Electrician
  2. Mathematician (I have troubles with simple addition)
  3. Professional Speaker (Why is this different than recording artist? I'd rather eat worms than speak in front of a large group of people, but I'm completely comfortable singing in front of them. WHY?)
  4. Politician of any kind (I have too much integrity for politics, which is to say, I have some integrity, which is too much for politics)
  5. Lawyer (see previous)
  6. Linebacker
  7. VJ
  8. DJ
  9. Matchmaker
  10. Watchmaker
  11. Bird Watcher
  12. Bob Ross
  13. Mob Boss
  14. That dude from MTV- what's his name? The guy from jackass, and he has his own show now. You know who I'm talking about.
  15. Advice Columnist
  16. Exotic Dancer (I can barely stand in heels- how could I dance in them? Answer: awkwardly.)
  17. Your Company's Computer Guy
  18. Bouncer
  19. Accountant
  20. Receptionist (.......)

You forgot assassin. Did you take the Myers-BRiggs test? This will make your path very clear. Seriously.

RachelRenae said...

Yeah, I've taken it. It suggests about half the stuff on my "seriously considered or pursued list". Doesn't narrow it down much!

You could be a party planner/party-in-a-box type thing. That would allow you to work with little kids, you could use your singing talents, supply the catering (thinking chef here), etc... just a thought.

Or... you could work for Scholastic and do book fairs at school libraries. That way you could work with kids and set up book displays. Plus, you wouldn't have to mess with lesson plans and sending kids to the office!

Melissa said...

one more idea for the party planner... you could do face painting... that kinda ties in the art/cosmetology thing.

Hay I love the lists.....I finally crossed off cross-country running champion, international footballer and spy off my mine. (I'm holding onto movie director for at least another year)

Thank you for e-mailing the photos, you looked beautiful and the dress was so incredible.

Where are you at?

RachelRenae said...

I'm still here! I'm alive!! I'm just overwhelmed right now.

ThomG said...

Try being on a roadtrip with your father. Now that's overwhelming!

Just make sure to choose a profession which can't be "outsourced" to Mexico or China.

I love how you say that you wouldn't make a good matchmaker when you keep insisting that Micheal and I are meant for each other

RachelRenae said...

Michael and you ARE meant for each other!! My point is that it's so OBVIOUS that even I can see it! Silly Amy.
