Re: The Bee Hive -- April 2022 Edition

I want to work....I have noticed a difference once my children left. I would like to work for somebody PT and have a little bit of fun! No boring banks. No hospitals they smell bad and not the happiest place.
Maybe, I'll write a book about boring times and what you should do to escape from your own imprisonment 🤣

Yes, I walked the dog down the street to meet the horses
but that wasn't enough. What to do....I am going to think on it!

@Brisky 

 

Are you up to reading poems that go on for 50 pages?

 

School has become awfully pricey.  When I first went to college, my tuition was $69 a quarter.  (We were on the quarter system while other universities were on a semester system.)

 

I could usually get all my books and supplies for under a hundred bucks.  Now you can't get one book for a hundred bucks.  My last degree?  Each class was $1500.  And that was considered a bargain.

 

Do you have a community college nearby?  Taking classes is fun -- especially when you don't have to worry about a degree.  Sometimes I get the urge to take a class in some subject that interests me.

 

I do have to take classes for work and, since COVID, there aren't the same opportunities.  I signed up for in-person seminars all the time.  Now everything's online.

 

Not the same.

 

How 'bout fly fishing?  Mountain climbing?  Long distance running? 

 

See, that's why I drink wine and watch old movies.

There are fun part-time jobs out there.  Any little tea shops in your area?  Okay, not fun for you, but there has to be something that would be up your alley.

 

I lost my high tech job after September 11 -- a lot of us did.  I knew moving here was risky because there were no jobs in NM.  In the back of my mind, I always thought: What would I do for work if I lost this job?

 

I applied for 82 jobs before I finally found one that paid less than half what I'd been making.  Way less.  But I'd finally decided that if I was going to work for peanuts, it had better be in a fun environment.  I applied for museum jobs, non-profits, colleges, arts organizations...  I was even considering going back to retail and working in a place like Petsmart just so I could be around dogs.

 

What sounds fun to you?

Definitely the art world. That is fun. I also have the GI bill portion on accident because the military messed up and put it in my name instead of my sons🙂
