Whichever path you choose to do, be sure to use the talent you have
with words/ideas and spur-of-the-moment associations... a la this

Aw shucks, thanks Lamp, but I'm thinking it's not really a marketable skill.

Park Ranger. I like that idea. I would love to do that too, if I were younger and tougher.

I know you can hold your own against woodland creatures and your nose against nasty bathrooms. Nasty bathrooms can't be worse than nasty coworkers.

Ain't that the truth?

Sigh...I look around with different ideas, different programs available at schools...I'm completely and hopelessly lost.

If I thought it would really happen I'd ask Gawd for a sign...

Heh.

Tha's true, lamplighter. Not impossible, but heroically difficult.

This one time, at band camp (not really band camp, scout camp actually, but band camp sounds funnier) a nighttime trip to the kybo resulted in one of the scout's maglites being dropped into the pit.

Shit.

No, really. Shit.

Ironically, the light had tumbled as it dropped and landed vertically, shining straight up. You know how you're not supposed to shine a light directly in your eyes? That's true for all your eyes. Anyhow, this pit was pretty full, and the mound onto which it stuck was high, high enough to tempt us to fashion a rigid wire noose for an emergency extraction. One of the other dads got that shitty assignment, and the light was rescued.

Now I know it's not worth it.

I've asked the Uni for a sign before with the caveat that it be really freakin' obvious as I am a dark crayon and you know what? I've always gotten one (answer, that is) and you will, too. Just ask for it to be OBVIOUS as sometimes the Universe is too subtle for me.

Every time I ask for a sign someone runs into my car.

There's my sign: shut up and like it.

No....I respectfully disagree. I think there is another message there...
keep asking and if you get run into again, we'll have a serious pow wow about you becoming some sort of mechanic...

Tell me how weird either of these things sound:

Heavy equipment operator

Medical coding

I like both of them for you because you can kind of be in your own world with both those jobs. I'd imagine you'd have little interaction with people as a medical coder and those people are in need in this area. SCC has (or used to have) an AS in Medical Records.

I can actually see you being really good as a site manager for a general contractor. Telling the tile guys that being late is unacceptable, and they'll be finishing after dark without overtime pay, and having them tip their hats and meekly reply, "ma'am."
