I hope this will help some of you...

I just started a new community, aboutmyjob, where I invite all of you to post your thoughts about your current or past jobs. I'm hoping my community will help young people to answer that very difficult question "What do I want to be?".

Please check out the description via the link above. If you want to post, there's no need to join the community, you can do so right away.

Jobs [20 Nov 2003|03:00am]

[ mood | listless ]

So I'm coming up on graduating college and I'm beginning to think about a "career". Or perhaps a job is a better word for it. I don't know what I want to do, though. I'm getting the degree I am mainly because I know it's very flexible and has many various applications. The problem, I guess, is that all the possible applications of it (computer engineering) means that I really have no idea what kind of job I want to start looking for. I know there are car companies around here that employ computer engineers for the integrated circuits in the cars. I really tend to enjoy programming, but then only when I find it something interesting and challenging. I'm not sure how much I would enjoy working on it day in and day out. I find myself thinking I'd do better in a job that involves dealing with people and interaction like that. My gf is working at a Gateway store selling computers. I've heard retail is absolute ass and that the hours and such are bitchy, yet at the same time it kinda appeals to me. It sounds like fun to be able to deal with people. Gah, another question. Who decides what the worth or respectability of a job is? I was talking to my mom about some of this over lunch, and she seemed to think that going to work in a place like a Gateway store after getting a degree would be a bad thing. As long as I'm happy and have a steady income I'm pleased with, what's the difference? Why is it somehow "unworthy" of me to have a job doing something I think I'd enjoy with my degree? Who's to say going to work in some boring lab working on something that'll prolly never amount to anything is better than helping a family pick out the computer that's right for them?

in search of.. truth.. [14 Nov 2003|04:10am]

[ mood | worried ]

Ok, the house is rather unsettled over some things.. actually one main area.. and I am not sure how I feel about it.

Mary feels.. that she is in her early 40's with 2 young children, ages 5 and 8, not a model face or figure.. she has a 'womans' figure.. as in.. well.. plump *winks*.. and a womans face.. and is not exactly wealthy..

So.. she feels.. perhaps she should 'settle'.. for companionship rather than true real love..

I do not think she should..

put in cut to not be so long in friends listCollapse )

"If God had a name, what would it be? And would you call it to his face? I you were faced with him in all his gorly, what would you ask him if you had just one question?"

I have been doing a lot of observing here lately... everyone seems to be searching for somethingCollapse )

*winces thinking perhaps I did make a mistake* [25 Oct 2003|06:25pm]

OK, I recently made an lj entry in my lj about something that happened at a lawyers office..

and I got a few responses in aim (well one in yahoomess).. and wondered.. umm.. did I make a mistake? SOOOOO

You guys.. gimme what I am searching for.. the answer to what I should have done.

See.. I was told a few things

1. You should have told the woman off for being rude and not putting her child in her lap

(well, if I knew this person and all.. I may have spoken up.. and said SOMETHING.. but she was a total stranger and.. well.. blah.. I cowarded out? I don't know.. just awkard)

2. I should have insisted the man take my seat even though he said in that stern elderly tone that made me feel like he was scolding me.. 'No thank you, it isn't polite for the man to sit while a woman stands, however if this lil man would like to sit on his mommys lap, I wouldnt mind sitting in the chair'.. (blah.. I never know how to handle the elderly? Perhaps cuz I was taught you always respect your elders and mind them! **you all know what I mean**)

3. One person said I should have asked the lil one if he wanted to sit in MY lap.. since the mother didnt want to hold him.. (but.. umm.. in todays day and age.. most people get furious if you touch their child without permission.. it was someone elses child! *speaking as a stranger.. if it was a friends child I prolly would have offered to hold him*)

anyways.. now *I* feel a tad bit.. guilty.. and soo.. in case I ever run into something similar to this again..

answers anyone? and.. is it acceptable to offer to hold another persons child if said person is a total stranger?

Maybe I am just lost on the ways of today.. parents dont seem the same as they were in my day.. but then again, I bet that the parents who raised my generation said the SAME thing of us when we parented our young kids..

If I was wrong in something, tell me.. I can handle it.. and hopefully handle it better next time.. though if you dont mind.. I dont wanna have a next time *wah wah wah*

I feel so lost. What's the point of all this? Why am I going through all this shit? Is there some end reason to jump through all this shit or should I just do what I want to? I keep finding myself asking if I wouldn't be better off quitting trying to get this whole "education" thing that doesn't seem to be helping all that much anyway and instead get out and get a job and learn through that.

Abuse [04 Sep 2003|04:27pm]

You all ever search deep inside your own hearts.. to see what you accept and tolerate? If we see an animal being abused.. not beaten perhaps.. but in horrid conditions.. would we say.. woah, this is wrong..and do something.. or keep walking?

I read this today, it made me think.. and brought tears to my eyesCollapse )
