Changing majors

My friend Jen posted the results of an interesting quiz in her blog. I decided to take it myself, and my results weren’t a lot different than hers.

You scored as Journalism. You are an aspiring journalist, and you should major in journalism! Like me, you are passionate about writing and expressing yourself, and you want the world to understand your beliefs through writing.

Funny thing, though…I guess I’d assume any blogger would score high in the journalism area. After all, don’t we have a passion for writing and telling a story? I know there are technical blogs out there, so the numbers might be skewed a bit in my thinking, but what do you think?

I can tell you that taking the quiz really did help me hone in on what my passions are. Howie and I have recently been talking about my getting a part time job. Having worked from home since 2000, I’ve become fond of an unstructured schedule and have no desire to go back into routine office work. What I would like to do is be with people. I don’t want to manage people, just work with them.

I’d love for my job to let me be creative. I would like a job which does not involve an in-basket requiring daily attention and remnants awaiting the next day. I would like to do my job and leave it behind when I exit my employer’s door each day. I would like to use computers, but not be doing repetitive stuff on them all day. I get a real charge out of interacting with people, especially teaching them things. Photography, maybe?

Sometimes, I think retail might be what I’d enjoy. A place like Hobby Lobby, for instance, would give me the opportunity to talk with customers and help them in their own creative pursuits. The stores also close at 8:00pm daily and are closed Sundays. I could live with that.

I’m just afraid I’d enjoy the employee discount too much and spend my paychecks there on art and scrapbooking supplies! Heh.

What I’d need the money for is paying off some debts, helping my folks out, and doing some improvements around our house and yard. I’d also like to be able to take some of the financial burden off of Howie’s shoulders.

One thought on “Changing majors

  1. The down side of you getting a job is that once you start bringing home a payckeck, it will be hard for you to ever stop again. As long as you’re happy this will be okay, but I sure do miss being at home!
