Vintage Flight Attendant Uniform by Pradagirl
When I was little, I wanted to be a dolphin trainer at Sea World. I also wanted to be a stunt woman, a professional ice cream taster, a circus clown and during a six-year stretch in Elementary school, I wanted to act in the sitcom Full House (OMG, I know.) I had an agent, took acting lessons and even had a role in a pilot for a television series (which was never picked up). Unfortunately (?), Full House got canceled when I was in the seventh grade and by the time I hit puberty, the idea of throwing pies at people for a living sort of lost it’s appeal.
But as for that strong urge to find a fun, exciting career with a little glam factor? Well, that never left me.
Which is why, I suppose, that I’m now having such a tough time finding a job. Sure, the unemployment rate is high and the competition is fierce, but there are still jobs to be had.
Jobs like secretary, for example (ew). Research assistant (double ew). Or Egg doner (OMG, no).
They’re just all jobs that I’d never want to have. I mean, how could anyone ever expect me to go from teaching tourists the electric slide in a cruise ship disco to itemizing orders for a company that manufactures plastic bags? It’s just not possible…I’ve been spoiled by one two many fun jobs to ever work in a job that wasn’t. Even teaching English in Japan, which was the hardest job I’v had to date, was never boring.
So in an effort to do everything humanly possible to not turn into THAT guy, I’ve decided to drive to Salt Lake City, Utah for a job interview. I can’t tell you what the job is just yet, but if you’ve been following me on Facebook or Twitter, you’ll probably have some idea. Let me just say though, that this job will take me to new heights and will hopefully allow for some opportunities to really spread my wings and soar.
I don’t really know how to make that any more plane.
More details to follow…Promise! : )
