Looking For Work

Well, I’ve finally realized that I have to have a job. The photography market has almost completely stopped, at least for me, and I need to eat. Although I will keep my Etsy and RedBubble shops open, my focus must turn in another direction for now.

Here are some of the jobs I wish I could have:
1. Stand up comic – however, I am not very funny except for the occasional pun (and hopefully this blog post!)
2. Singing duets with Barry Manilow – hmm, he seems to be doing OK by himself and Vegas is very far away.
3. Fashion designer – well, I didn’t study it when I was in my teens; probably too late to break into that business 40 years later, eh? I did design some pretty cool things for my paper dolls however … wonder where those got to?
4. Mystery writer – trouble is, the mystery is so good I can never figure out what it is!
5. Book reviewer – alas, my reading is very slow; by the time I finish the book I’m sure even the 5th grade students would have read and reviewed it for the school paper.
6. Fashion model – being vertically challenged puts the damper on this one!

So, I guess I will have to look for something more mundane and ordinary and in the field where I have worked most of my adult life – computers/technology/whatever you want to call it now. If you need a techie, or know of someone that does, please send them my way. Unless I land one of the positions listed above, I’m available for work!

Peace, Judi

Why would it be too late? If you have the stuff and want to create fashion you should just go for it! Of course that, book writing, book reviewing & fashion model are all things you can do in your off time from the mundane job you didn't say runway model, just fashion so why not?

Sadly on the Barry Manilow tour...guess I kind of have to burst your bubble there. Pretty sure that one might be the Harvard University of your dream jobs. You can keep trying to achieve this but may be disappointed lol

Since you've taken it all so seriously, I guess I might as well forget the comic stuff, too, huh? ;-)

Hope you find exactly what you're looking for. Possibly a computer/techie job for Barry Manilow...

Just noticed (in your profile) that you're a fan of the Inspector Lynley series. Me too. Just read the latest...loved it.

Charmaine - that is too funny, I'll have to check it out ;-)
I love all mysteries, the Lynley series is a favorite. I have not yet read the latest, but will look for it at the library next time I'm down there; thanks for the recommendation. Looks like the new PBS series will start in a week or so, can't wait.

good luck with your job hunt!! maybe you can find a techie job at a photography related place - liek a photography magazine company!

ppd - sounds like a great idea! even the local camera shop might be worth a try.
Peace, Judi
