Usually when I tell people this, they say, "Well, what do you want to do???"
My reply to this is a depressing, "I have no idea."
That's usually followed by a, "Well, what are you good at? What do you like to do?"
To which, sadly, my reply is also, "I really don't know. I'm kind of going through a thing."
"Well, you went to college right? What is your degree in?"
"Do you want to teach? Write?"
This is where most people give up- and I don't blame them. I'm tempted to give up as well.
I really don't know what I want to do with my life. I don't have some great passion for a certain occupation or field, and I don't have some sort of calling that pulls me in any particular direction, which makes where I'm at in life difficult. I know I'll eventually figure it out, so I'm not worried. But everytime this conversation occurs, it's a crappy and constant reminder that I suck at figuring my life out.
I try to think of things that I like and think about what career path that would lead me down.
Unfortunately for me, it's not that simple.
What am I good at? A lot of really, awesome things. Things I never really considered making a career out of...
I have developed a list of jobs I would be/am really good at. If anyone is interested, please contact me immediately. I assure you I will exceed every expectation in any of these jobs. I am very reliable, have my own car, and take things very, very seriously.
Qualifications: I am really, really good at spending money. Like, superhero good. I have been spending money for as long as I can remember and am extremely experienced. I am very passionate about spending money, and therefore have dedicated a lot of time to learning how to spend it. (I'm the person that goes Christmas shopping and ends up spending hundreds on stuff for me...guilty.) I will spend the crap out of anything you give me. And I can do this very quickly and efficiently so you can go about the rest of your day, enjoy your meetings and rest assured that your money is being well spent. On really cool things.
Salary Requirements: All you have to do is give me a sum of money, and I will spend it. I don't even have to be shopping for myself, though that is much preferred.
Qualifications: I love food. So, so much. And I have an overly sensitive palette which makes me do weird things like recognize that there is a hint of nutmeg in the mashed potatoes or notice that a restaurant is using a different grade of meat than the previous night. I should probably be a food critic. Except I won't try anything weird. And I don't like seafood.
Salary Requirements: Lots of money for me to spend. Lots of free food.
Qualifications: You can always count on me to make an inappropriate comment. I am also good at being witty at times. If you pay me, I will follow you around and insert jokes, both appropriate and inappropriate, when I feel they are necessary. This will probably happen more than you are comfortable with.
Salary Requirements: This I'll do for free. Because I crack myself up. Donations are appreciated. But mostly, they're required.
Qualifications: I love kitties. They are really cute. But I am not allowed to get anymore because that would make me a crazy cat lady at 26. I am really good at picking out cute ones though. I can find them anywhere. So if you need a new kitty, I will find you a really cute one. You will then have to pry it from my hands.
Salary Requirements: 1 kitt--dang it :( I guess I'll settle for a lot of money and free food.
