Life at Work

So it turns out my older sister is a whiz at finding job opportunities online. I did not know this. I wonder what else she's good at?

She e-mailed me a bunch of possibilities last night. I haven't gotten around to sending out resumes to all of them yet, but I was intrigued enough at the online job posting site that was requesting people to send in resumes to work for them that I tweaked my resume and sent it in. I mean, so far they haven't matched me with any potentially great jobs, but if I knew the system from the inside out . . .

Meanwhile, my folks come home from vacation in a couple of days. Threat level at yellow, soon to be orange.

My older brother called this morning to suggest there's a real need for quality pre-schools out there.

Huh? Am I suppose to open one?

Aside from the fact one needs a degree, and possibly an advanced degree, and possibly in early childhood education, one also needs money, space, and a high tolerance for screaming.

I've never known my brother to be completely delusional, but perhaps he's suffered a recent trauma I don't know about. I changed the subject quickly, and refrained from suggesting he seek professional help.

Really, the best people at a time like this are the people who believe that you'll find something, but who don't try to send you in any particular direction. They're the comforting ones. They're the ones you can rely on to support whatever bizarre ideas you come up with.

Not "opening a pre-school" bizarre, but "maybe I'll work for that online job bank instead of just answering their ads" bizarre.

It's really not such a bad idea.
