career paths

The funk is dissipating. Thanks for your kind comments, especially kate5kiwis "i think it's a good thing to listen to our body and have a day-or-two retreat at the beginning of our monthly cycle. good for you having a wee nap, i usually do on day one or two." Wise words to keep in mind for next month!!!

Last night, big sis came home with an interesting homework. They had to go on this online site and answer a multitude of questions which would then direct them to a list of careers that would suit them. Each career had a job description, salary range, "interviews" with people in that field. Her top five were criminologist, music teacher, elementary/high school teacher, web designer and actress. Nothing really stood out much. Guess her interests are quite diverse right now and she really has no clue what to go into. What a great tool though to get these 12-13 year olds to start thinking about what they want to do with the rest of their lives. What a daunting task too. Some people just "know" early on where they are headed and can clearly see the path ahead of them. How admirable. Hubby was like that, knew what he wanted to be from a real early age, 6-7 years old. Yet so many others don't know or change their mind. Who knows where life will bring you. Happiness in what you do is key though at the end of it all.

So for fun, I did the test too. And guess what? My previous job came in as number 2!! Right after illustrator and before taxidermist, architectural technician, pharmacist and interior designer. But no where in that list of careers do they have "mom" ;)

Ha, no mom? But that is the most rewarding and difficult job of all! Anyway, what is the link? I'm interested to try it myself!

Glad you are feeling better today. You should post the link to that site (if it's a public site). I did one of those tests years ago and it kept telling me I should be a mechanic. I almost went to school for that, until my cousin talked me out of it. I never did settle on one career, but have had many so far and will probobly have many more in the future. I seem to just go with the flow.

Was book bum on the list? I think that would be my ideal job. Sit and read.

Miranda did that a while back too and I think acting and writing came out on top.
