Last night my cousin’s wife sent me an email with the resume she was working on. First off…wow! Second….things have changed. The optician apprenticeship….if I am going to be honest…was only a way for me, in my mind…to secure a decent job out of state. When I opened that email this morning, I was blown away. She really has a way of wording things.
For example…I input all charges, post and balance money for one of our offices that happens to be out of state. Her spin on this was “managing financial account details and orders for multi state offices. ” That sounds so much more important than what I really do. I am not tossing away the idea that I could use these skills to secure a new job out of state until I find something better…but….if I am going to be completely honest? The job I want has nothing to do with the resume I have. I finally told the Optician today that I did not want to do the apprenticeship any longer. Not that any real training has been done as of yet….I have been flying by the seat of my pants when necessary.
Those six weeks I worked at that Renaissance Faire were an eye opener for me. Yes it was hard, especially with all of the days in a row but if I am going to be honest? The creative energy that I felt the whole time was worth it…and more. Creative living is my goal…
Somewhere in our hour and a half conversation….Scotland came up again. Scotland…and the mountains of Tennessee/ Kentucky….these are places I need to visit. I won’t manage the funds for Scotland this year but I may be able to pull off Tennessee….maybe? Especially since my cousin is there and I will have peeps to pick me up from the airport and let me crash on their couch.
I am not sure how to get from point A to point B as of yet…but at this point…I still need point A and will do my best job as I figure out the way to point B….Zia
