So you might have noticed that I have been MIA for the past couple days.
I have been planning a nerf gun battle for the past two weeks for my boyfriend’s 23rd birthday party, and it’s sort of been consuming my life.
Not to mention that I’m trying to get my school figured out, and that I have an actual job I am required to attend- I’ve been too busy or simply unable to make contact with a computer.
But I will talk more about the Nerf battle in my next post.
Today I wanted to talk about possible professions of a meandering college student.
For those of you who know me, you’ll know that I have often talked about not knowing what direction my life is going.
If you don’t know me, I am guessing the general directionless writing of my blog is probably a dead give away of my life planning skills.
I am a bit hopeless.
Anyway, when I was studying in Germany about two years ago, I was still thinking about what I could possibly do in the future with my obscure/useless skill set.
The following is a collection of those professions, with some updates and/or modifications:
-High school reunion conversations might actually be interesting.
