I’m linking up at the writing workshop with MamaKat today. Every Tuesday she offers several writing prompts in preparation for Thursday’s link up. This week’s prompts are below. I chose to write on what new career I would chose if I had to chose one.
1. Write a list of your top Spring must-haves.
2. Something your kids said that made you laugh.
3. If you had to choose a new career for yourself, what would you choose?
4. Write a blog post inspired by the word: incomplete.
5. Tell the story of a mistake made in the kitchen.
6. Write about your favorite childhood pet.
I have actually thought about what different careers I would enjoy for a long time. It amuses me.
Every time I go to the cosmetology school for a hair cut I think it would be a fun career. Except for the chemicals. As sick as I was for as long as I was and as hard as I’ve tried to get healthy and as much money as we’ve spent, I don’t think I could bring myself to pursue this career choice unless I could find a school that taught natural alternative to perming and coloring.
Real estate? Yes! I think showing people homes would be a blast! I’m not sure I would like the tedious paperwork part of the job but helping people find a home would make it worthwhile.
Working as a barista at a coffee shop? Yep! Coffee and people is there anything else to say?
And since we’re talking about careers, I’ll share a couple of my child hood far fetched dreams because what child ever hasn’t dreamed so big and crazy about a future that is so unattainable for most?
One was an ice skater. Every 4 years when we’d watch the Olympics and I’d be mesmerized by skaters like Dorothy Hamill and Scott Hamilton. This dream wasn’t even on the radar. I have to date only been on ice a dozen ish times. Alas, I never lived the life of an all star ice skater, but I did get a taste of that dream on the dance floor. In my early adult life, I taught ballroom dancing at the Fred Astaire studio where telemarketers in the back room offered their unsuspecting callers 3 lessons and a dance party if they could answer 3 trivia questions correctly. That job was probably my most favorite job ever; except for the selling aspect. I was pretty terrible. Eventually I became the receptionist where I could still dance but didn’t have to sell lessons. This was before the days of camcorders, Facebook and Instagram. The trophies went to the thrift store many years ago and the few photos I had are long gone. So there are no pictures to share.
Someday you may see my name on Realtor.com or find me behind a counter serving up Almond Joy Latte’s and banana bread but for now, I’ll continue being a loving wife and mother.
What about you? If you could chose a new career what would it be?
