Politics for me...

My camera is very shiny, and I am excessively excited about the zoom. There's a limit to how many photos I can take of my own possessions, though.

Career matcher meme from miss_s_b

1. Go to http://www.careercruising.com/.
2. Put in Username: nycareers, Password: landmark.
3. Take their "Career Matchmaker" questions.
4. Post the top ten results

If I don't tell it my qualifications, I get:

Power Plant Operator
Technical Writer
Lobbyist
Special Effects Technician
Film Processor
Criminologist
Office Machine Repairer
Costume Designer
Stationary Engineer
Disc Jockey


Which is interesting. I think I got excited and put "very much like" for a few questions about learning to work machines, which explains the power plant thing. But technical writer, SFX, criminologist, that's all pretty cool. I'm slightly intrigued by stationary engineer - it sounds restful, at least.

When I tell it I went to uni, I get:

Technical Writer
Special Effects Technician
Lobbyist
Criminologist
Costume Designer
Disc Jockey
Critic
Casting Director
Political Aide
Public Policy Analyst


Which, heh. I did think of going into politics or the civil service somehow at one point, though mainly from lack of other ideas. Activist comes in at 13 and Writer at 14, so yay for that.
I remember doing these questionnaires at school, where you had to answer like, dislike, strongly dislike etc to various questions and they told you what your idea career was. They seem to have improved since then, since at that point it recommended I should be a music teacher. Which was interesting, considering I have very little musical talent, can't play any instruments, and knew very early on that whatever I wanted to do, it was NOT teach. Because I heard all the horror stories from my mum. I can't remember what else it recommended for me...I think there were several varieties of teaching, and probably, like, secretary or something.

Was the narrator of Rocky Horror a criminologist? Maybe I want to be that.

I have also had a long-lasting dislike of the concept of teaching. I keep thinking to myself it would be an easier than some jobs I've done, it definitely pays more, and I could maybe teach languages or music, which I really enjoy. But there is the all-important question: Do I ACTUALLY want to teach or am I just viewing it as the only escape route from the shitty jobs I seem to end up doing and not considering all the options? Thing is, I think the older you get the more difficult it is to find options that will appeal to you. So I'm a bit pessimistic, I guess you could say. But people don't HAVE infinite money to spend on improving themselves and getting the career that is ideal for them...which is why so many of us end up saying we hate our jobs. :D

Criminologist...Yes, I think the RH guy was one, but only the guy in the film. I can't remember what, but it's a differently-named profession for the stage show.

Yeah, re-training gets to be a bugger eventually, and an expensive one :( I think you'd probably be good at teaching, though it is really stressful - more the paperwork and the bureaucracy than the kids, which is saying something!

Must go and see Rocky Horror again - just to find out, obviously :D
