I’ve had many jobs over the years, but none ever felt 100% right. Not until I rediscovered writing and a friend encouraged me to publish my first finished book. The book was a trainwreck, but I’d like to think I’ve improved over the years. But… if I could no longer write, what would I do?
Probably go slowly insane.
Aside from that, I’m not really sure. I’d probably have to go back to college to do anything I’d actually enjoy. I always liked Phsycs, and at one point I told my mother that’s what I wanted to study in college. She kept pushing engineering at me, stating it would be an easier and more lucrative field than Physics. Well, I have some bad news for her. I really, really didn’t enjoy engineering. The professors were awesome, and I had good grades, but it just didn’t spark my interest all that much. Just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should.
Barring being a student for far longer than I’d like to become a physicist, I’d probably study graphics design. As aggravating as Photoshop can be, I like putting my teaser graphics together and the occasional book cover. I’m not sure I’d want to do that full-time, but it is something I enjoy.
In the past I’ve been an office manager, adminstrative assistant, stable assistant, Accreditation and Compliance Coordinator, Human Resources assistant, and a few other things.
If you could do any job in the world, what would you choose?
