Tentmaking

I have been thinking a lot about career alternatives lately. (Have I shared that I hate my day job?)

I've gotten over the need to validate my personhood or intelligence by seeking work commensurate with my education. I no longer have a desire to climb any career ladders. I pretty much want to clock in, do a good day's work that produces a tangible work product and pays for my health insurance, clock out and go home. I do not want to have to be creative on the job; I have plenty of outlets for that elsewhere.

Perhaps I'll check into the local community college's offerings of fast, concentrated trainings for currently in-demand jobs.

As they say, if not now, then when?

Don't forget on-line classes.
