There are millions of people who identify with their job. This is super common when you meet people with low self esteem and they immediately have to tell you they are in a job profession. “Hi, I’m ___ I’m an attorney.” No one cares. Are you going to sue me? Or did you just have to brag about your knowledge of the law? Nope, yep, and still no one cares. Guess what, when you ARE an attorney, the rest of the attorneys don’t care. You have to find some other way to impress. I worked at the Colorado Bar Association for a couple of years and dealt with all of them. When you know more than they do, they stop trying to impress you. The funny thing is, even when an attorney is not employed by an actual firm or has an actual client, they still tell you they are an attorney.
So my last posting was basically telling you that the world still doesn’t know what they want to be when they grow up and get that degree. It really is a huge fail on the education system at a very young age. From day one children should be preparing on how to make money and make a living, other than living rent free in their parents basement. True story, … I had a friend who wanted to be a …. ready? A nurse. I was shocked and asked why. Oh she thought it would be fun. Damn girl, you ain’t seen fun until you are cleaning up shit and bed pans of your sick and dying patients. Fun? Damn, that is a one sick sense of humor. Me — fun would be more of an amusement park, a nightclub, a concert venue, sporting events arena … not a hospital. So I gave a very brief detailed account of what a day in the hospital looks like for a nurse, and then gave the detailed account of what happens when you get home, empty your pockets and collapse into a chair of exhaustion. Yeah, my mom is/was a nurse and as a kid you see things way differently. Mom didn’t say work was fun. She usually got on the phone and complained to whomever at how shitty work was. And then there was the no name stories of people who are dying, and their families. When you think you found your dream job or dream company, go online to glassdoors.com and find out what past employees say/think about that company. Find out how much those jobs REALLY pay before you commit to a career. And before you ever take a class, talk to someone doing it and spend a day with him/her (if you can).
My friend did not go into nursing and instead went into computer science and now makes a very healthy salary.
You can’t turn on any media without seeing the death of the Queen and all the royals. Now they have to say “God save the KING”, as the Queen was saved for 96 years. Since I live in the United States of America, it doesn’t really affect me.
