i like my job.
but there are these moments and days when it sucks bigtime ...
like when i have a new student that has a label of autism ... but so clearly has just been abused over her shortshort lifetime and is now in her 4th foster home. or when i have loads of paperwork to complete ... but no time to complete it in. or when a co-worker asks me for the million-th time to come and see a kid in her room ... but i'm not allowed to without parental permission ... like i've said a thousand times! or how about when i get spit on ... multiple times over the course of a day ... on the side of my head (ugh ... bleach anyone?).
or when ...
i can stop there ... i think you get the point.
so ... i've come to the point in my life where i am always keeping an eye out for possible occupations that just might interest me ...
the sidewalk snowplow-person ...
(and because i have at least one reader in an area of the world that doesn't require this occupation ... definition ... the person that moves the accumulated snow off of the sidewalk to allow pedestrians to utilize the sidewalk for walking purposes. you are so welcome.)
pro: instant satisfaction on a job well done ... just turn around and look behind you.
con: seasonal employment.
pro: peace and quiet.
con: too quiet.
pro: seasonal employment!! spring - summer - AND autumn off!
con: potential bank account issues.
pro: the chance to catch up on listening to the radio or books on tape or talk radio.
con: that would get old quick. maybe.
pro: time alone.
con: time alone ... without a computer at my fingertips.
ok ... fine. i'll stick with this damn job a wee bit longer. at least i'm not lonely. or broke.
anyone have any ideas for other occupations that might suit me well?? feel free to leave suggestions in the comments.
