What are friends for, eh? Very Happy

My mother gave me some excellent advice some years ago... write a list on the left detailing all the things you're good at (even what you'd consider non-work things, like talking on the phone, window-shopping, etc), and then on the right, write out all the things you like doing. Just study it a little bit every day and before you know it, various ideas will be popping out at you.

If you think outside the box, as in working in a non-conventional manner, many more things are possible. I happen to like to graze through life rather than eating the same meal every day... more than one friend, more than one job, more than one hobby... it keeps me hopping and I like to hop.


You mother sounds like a smart woman and I think I might make me one of those lists.

I have tons of hobbies and things I enjoy doing, with crafts being my favorite.

I've been snooping around Ebay for some years now and I've thought about becoming an Ebay seller as well. I know my way (pretty much) around Ebay and I can see myself selling craft items.

Montana--

Check into home care for the elderly--this can pay very well and you can pick and choose your clients.


Oh goodness, that kind of work would drive me mad Shocked

Besides, as mom gets older, the more I need to care for her, so one is enough for this gal.

I always need to do something creative, which is probebly why I'm attracted to assembly work. I also need to do physical work because of my back. If I were to work at home selling on ebay or if I land a job where I can work at home doing something on my computer, I'd exercise periodically throughout the day just so I wouldn't have to deal with the back pain.

I can't work a sit down job outside the house because I'd live with constant pain. I need to move around a lot, so standing in the same spot all the time is even worse than sitting, so my options are limited.

Hey, my neighbour is selling his lobster boat, so maybe I could become a fisher woman Laughing

Let me tell you something, Montana; when a company, any company, has an employee meeting to assure them there will be no layoffs, there will be a layoff. If they tell them the company isn't going under, that means the layoff will be permanant.


Yeah, I learned that in this experience of mine.

Boy, it sure pisses me off when people mess with my life!

I've never been lied too by any company that I've worked for, so this was all new to me.

Ayup.

I'm sorry this happened, Montana. Good luck and good resume'ing.


Thanks jes. I'm a survivor and I'll be just fine ;-)

Have you thought of nude lawn mowing as a career? I'm sure you'd have more work than you can shake a stick at. And in the winter, you can snowplow.
