Tunes: Through With You - Maroon 5
Mood: Intrigued, Tired, Achey.
I'm trying to determine my career. I'd like to be either a Chef or a Mortician.
Pretty weird variaty, eh?
And no, I'm not Hannibal Lecter. And yes, I just realized how creepy this is after thinking about that.
OH SNAP IT'S KATIE'S QUOTE OF THE WEEK.
" *Randomly throws pencil on table. Bounces* Lorry."
"What? Did you just say 'lorry'?"
"I said sorry."
Sorry, that was a bit random, but I forgot. And now that the school year is in full swing and I have five classes with Katie, we'll be sure to get alot of awesome quotes, people!
But back to my insane (future) career choices.
Let's look at the pros and cons.
SONG: NIGHT SURGEON - REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA
You talk to almost no one.
You get medical experience.
The dead can't complain.
It's a chance to get involved in the police force -- helping out with homicides and such.
It's something you have to think about -- you have to carefully figure out the cause of death.
Weird hours for weird people!
You don't have to be social at all.
You have to be weird for this job.
You're an importan asset to society.
You'll always be in demand -- I mean, everyone dies.
Knowing about death to a point where it seems so natural, it's not scary.
Ability to deal well with grief.
You can dance around in the morgue and the dead won't tell.
Dealing with stiffs all day.(*rimshot*)
Rigor Mortis in males. (a.k.a. dealing with stiffies all day. *rimshot*)
Probably being looked at weirdly, if people know your occupation.
Awkward conversations with people.
You have to be emotionally stable for the job.
Hmmm. Well, the pros outweigh the cons, but that last one may have me out of the running. Let's see about chef.
SONG: THE BAKER - THE AQUABATS
Working with food.
It's an artsy job.
Baking is fun.
It's a theraputic activity.
You always have to taste test!
You don't have to be emotionally stable.
You can dance around in the kitchen and the food won't tell.
Requires skill and focus.
Playing with a color palate to get frosting and fondant colors right.
Making a rainbow-colored cake.
Bringing smiles to peoples faces with wonderful baked goodies and foods.
Awesome chef's coat thingy.
Oh, the complaints!
It's probably not going to be in that high of demand.
Difficulty of being accepted into a culinary arts school.
Establishing a resteraunt.
Getting the methods right.
Hmm. The pros also outweigh the cons. Well, I have six+ years to decide!
