Other Job Possibilities

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I'm going to talk about work.  Some more. 

Just like any other working human being, there are days I like my job and feel fulfilled as I run out the door.  Other days, not so much, and I run out the door even faster.

Anytime I try to think about what else I would want or could possibly do - I am clueless.  Truly, clueless.  Honestly, I think I get stuck because there are many wonderful things about my job/where I work that keep me from looking outside of my window-less cubicle walls.

My undergraduate degree is in Marketing, and my master's degree is in Engineering & Technology Management, the latter of which is tied pretty specifically to where I currently work, but not exclusively.  Now, almost six years out of undergrad, I feel like I'm so far removed from Marketing that my only option would be going back to an entry level sales position and work my hind end up the ladder.  No, thanks.

When I really sit down to think about what other job possibilities might be, this is what comes to mind - in varying degrees of seriousness:

- Grab my childhood joke books and becoming a comedienne

- Start asking strangers if I can take their family pictures and build a portfolio for a photography business

- Pen a series of children's books

- Become a voice-over actor

- Create new names for crayon colors, Baskin Robbins ice cream flavors, and Girl Scout Cookies 

- Run an in-home daycare  

- Open and operate an indoor learning/play facility

- Write witty greeting cards for Hallmark

- Become a children's fashion consultant and teach parents the keys to making their child/children look homeless in public

Yeah.  Maybe I should just stay right where I am.

Take Luck,
