Is it time to think outside the box?
Have you ever dreamed of a job that didn't fit society's mainstream idea of an acceptable way to make a living? Have you ever wanted to open up your own fish bait store? A second hand sink store? A soup kitchen-laundry mat combo? Maybe you want to act in commercials, fly into fishing lodges in remote locations and deliver singing telegrams or write a book about all the different species of slugs in the Pacific Northwest!
Take this time of unemployment to explore what you truly want. Consider your values, your talents, your dreams and those activities where time passes before you while you, completely unaware, emerse yourself in a bath of slug categorizing or soup recipes. Love what you do. That is what is most important. The money WILL follow. And take this time to speak with a college counselor. It is free, it is valuable and it may set you on a course toward your dream, guilt free. If nothing else, you might see something you would have never imagined!
