[John Vanderslice] said, “If you think the Internet is making us lonelier, then you were never lonely before 1995.” That’s fucking deep, right? You know what you no longer have to do? Sit in your room with nothing. There is someone, even if it’s just some dude arguing about Alien Vs. Predator, right?

pygmy-of-triviality replied to your post “I keep coming back to work that helps people… work that does something…”

well, that’s not a bad idea at all. What kind of thing do you think you’d be interested in doing? And clichéd as it may sound, helping others really does help you yourself, and its more worthy than making profits for a company, you know?

I keep wondering about helping families who’ve been affected by benefit cuts, or in some way helping vulnerable people in the recession. Or generic social worker training. But I’ve got no experience in any of these areas, so obviously I’d have to get some… but I do wonder if it’s just another silly idea of mine. Like the time I was gonna be an embroiderer or a freelance editor. I mean, the other job I keep looking at is visual merchandiser. The two are hardly connected. I just worry I’m doing that thing again where I get into a shit headspace and try and march off in some ludicrous direction and attempt to turn my life upside down.

That’s not a silly idea, and its worth looking into. Maybe check out Citizens advice Bureau, see what you need to work for them? Sometimes these places just need someone willing to do the work, and qualifications come second. Sometimes you need to turn your life upside down and just go for it, if it helps, and it can. The best jobs I’ve ever had have been radical departures from what I ever did before (I went from graphic design to being a bloody forester for gods sake!:D), and they where challenging and really quite fulfilling.  Silly ideas are fine, honestly. If you stick to the sensible ones, you’ll never know what you can or want to do.

Filed under I worked as a VM for a short while. It was a good job and I worked with good people just to let you know how uncconected my jobs have been. :D
