so the last few days im pretty sure i've heard the word 'career' more times than in the last few months. i dont know, it just still seems like a foreign concept to me. everyone's like, yeah this is a good job to build a career on. career? what? seriously, do i have to start thinking in those terms now? because i really dont want to. even in high school you here this stuff, it's good for your career in the future. ok...and? no one ever really stops to tell you that if you think about it for more than two seconds a career ultimately means doing the same thing for the rest of your life. in that case i think my career should be not having a career because unless it's either rockstar or super eccentric professor im not sure thats a word i want associated with my goings on. i have a job, it gives me something to do and new stuff to learn. i do not have a career. i never really put much thought in to it. people would always ask what i wanted to be and my answer has pretty much always been *shrug* whatever keeps me happy. cause really, pay rent, buy food, buy beer you're pretty much good to go. hide in a suitcase on the way to portugal and you're totally set.
i have a picture i took when i was in high school when the alberta teachers went on strike. the catholic board never waslked out so i still had class. the picture is from the day i decided to skip school and go with my mom to the big ATA rally at the Legislature. it's this dude with a big placard that says "What is the future worth?" i know the initial point of it, but really, why not ask that question in a more general sense? it's a good question i think.
