The only thing I enjoyed doing was photography but that was only acceptable as a hobby, not as a career choice. My father wanted me to be a doctor, like him. But I didn’t think I had the ability to succeed at that. I probably wanted to be an artist but that wouldn’t have been acceptable. So I dropped out of school, ran away and got married. And now, after an accidental but highly successful career as a librarian, I’m sort of an artist. Since I don’t have to make any money doing it, I can and do dabble in all sorts of artistic endeavors just for my own pleasure. Now what in the world am I going to do with all these beads, photographs, paintings, mosaics, wood carvings, fabric arts, and so on that I’ve done and plan to do ????????

Becoming one out of the two ain’t bad. 😉 Lorena March 20, 2012 at 10:31 am 8 years ago Reply I guess this is why I’m self-employed… I always just wanted to be happy. Joe Haldeman March 21, 2012 at 8:26 am 8 years ago Reply I guess that’s also part of the reason I’ve stuck with free-lance writing, Lore. Not so much “wants to be happy” as “wants not to be fucked with.” Unca Joe nakhira March 21, 2012 at 10:12 pm 8 years ago Reply Lawyer. I could equivocate with the best of ’em, and my neighborhood had more than a few. Either that, or Indian chief (seriously!). tammy March 23, 2012 at 12:25 pm 8 years ago Reply Social worker. Now, I’m all like ‘I don’t wanna hear your problems!’ Bahahahahahaha Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
