Career Plans

“So, what will you be doing when the job finishes in 2009”

“Oh! I’m getting married”

Yes I even shocked myself with this statement, apparently I have started to view getting married as a career choice and he is not even rich. To be fair I have always lacked ambition, my boss even told me that during one of my performance reviews. I am one of life’s plodders who wakes up one day and realises that at 33 I still have no idea what I want to be when I grow up. I always swore I wouldn’t end up like my dad who never knew what he wanted to do with his life so stayed in the army for 24 years only to bumble around in jobs he hated for the last 20 years since he left, he wears his air of disappointment well but will tell anyone who cares to ask that what he really wanted to be was a PE teacher, hardly glamorous but apparently the chance to be one escaped him.

So come end of 2009 I am really hoping someone just offers me a new job, a bit like how I got this one and then off I can plod again.

P.S Picture is my Mum and stepdad who got married nearly two years ago incidentally she gave up work about then but in her defence she had worked nearly 70 hours a week for the last 30 years so I guess she had an excuse.
