When i grow up

I think i want to be a carpenter.  This grad school stuff was just a hobby.

... it's irrelevant that i'm clumsy and lack patience when working with directions/tools/measurements.

Re: When i grow up

  • (aka, i don't want to write my thesis... and if this was just an idle adventure in academia, then i don't have to, right?)

  • The title of this post made me think of the PCD song Embarrassed

    I also sometimes think that I could be perfectly happy making cards or shopping (which I skipped work to do on Monday... Surprise) all day instead of grad school...

  • Sometimes I think about "when I grow up" and realize that I am 38 and should probably feel like a grown up by now! I don't though, even though I am responsible, have a job, own 2 cars and a home...
  • I feel like I should own my own contracting business sometime. I am really good at organizing things, meeting budgets, customer service, and deadlines. I really like the challenge of going into a male dominated industry too.

    i don't know the details of it, but a friend of mine did a construction management degree at UW. she said there were 4 girls in the graduating class, and all 4 of them had jobs lined up years before graduation....last i heard, some of the men were still job hunting in their field (grad in 2008).

  • Always makes me think of the Garbage song. Are the *** Cat Dolls music the whippersnappers are listening to these days?

     Stick with it CDMay, writing the thesis mean you're almost done!

     And no, no clue what I'd do when I grow up. I thought I knew, but not anymore! The massage therapist I see jokes that whenever I get bored programming I should go to massage school Stick out tongue.

    Hmm... Maybe I should go back to school. I already have a BA in business. I bet I wouldn't have to take many courses to catch up. Smile

  • I feel like I should be a lot farther along in my career, money, kids, etc. in my life than I am. I'm not unhappy with my life by any means but I wouldl like some things to change and some things to move a bit faster.

    So when I grow up I want to be a caterer and a proffessional couponer. Thanks Jenn for getting me on that kick! Lol!

    How do you feel about cats? I have two, and one of them feels the need to be in my lap or on my keyboard constantly... a professional petter may just keep her occupied! :)

     

    And to those who said they should feel more grown up by now... my 58 y/o mom still says "when I grow up"
