Pink Braids-DBC

Exactly who I'm s'posed to be... I don't know which clothes even fit me

So, I am taking this career planning course at Laney Community College to work out my next direction in life.

We've been taking personality assessments and looking at career databases and websites. And I am just as uncertain as the day I first walked into the class.

Part of it is that I'm a complicated person: I'm social, but relatively introverted (which is why working with online community suited me well, back in the day). I'm creative, but not enough of an entrepreneur to get ongoing work doing creative stuff (and I won't have anything to do with advertising or marketing - my brief foray into marketing work showed me that it really isn't for me.) Etc.

About the most appealing thing I've come up with so far is Library Science. (And I'd welcome comments or emails from those of you who are in this field... I know there are at least two of you out there who have me friended, so feel free to pipe up and offer your perspectives!) Or doing hair... I'm currently fascinated by hair, especially fake hair/extensions. The thing with that is that #1 I have old RSI in my wrists, so it might not be feasible for me, and #2 you have to work weekends to make any money.

So... if you have a job/career you enjoy, how did you find it?
