Under Surveillance

About A Girl

Once upon a time, I was in a video store with my then boyfriend trying to pick out a movie to watch. I picked up John Carpenter's Vampires, and proceeded to tell the boy about the coolest scene in the movie, where a guy uses his hot-from-being-fired gun to cauterize a wound he received. Said boyfriend looks at me, shakes his head, and says, "You're not like other girls, Betty."

Good For Nothing

Friday, March 09, 2007

I took a skills assesment quiz because I've had enough of jobs and am ready to look for a career. As I went through my top 10 job matches, and found reasonable objections to each prospective career, I realized, wow, I'm not good at anything relevant. Or maybe I'm just lazy and good at making excuses. But seriously, some of these job suggestions were completely off-the-wall.

Actress? That'd be fantastic, but please let me know how I'm to keep my family fed while I'm waiting to be discovered here in Indiana. Dancer? Considering I have no classical dance training, I can only think of one kind of dancing where I would make money and, uh, that ain't happening. Courier service driver? What? Is that even a real answer?

You know it's pretty sad when the skills assesment quiz basically tells you that you're not good at anything. Looks like I'm destined to be a penniless-artist-wanderer-beachcomber type. Maybe I should just go get a degree in philosophy. Or communications.
