So, trying to rev up my inspiration for this next show I poked around some of the online career tests the other day.
This one wanted to know whether I enjoy solitary walks, and whether I prefer to experiment or follow traditional approaches. A few dozen questions later, it told me I should be either a Feng Shui consultant, veterinarian, sports photographer, or rock star.
I'll take rock star, thank you very much. ("News Anchor" was a ways down the list...)
I paid for another one, which was more concerned with telling me what kind of person I was, and then left me swimming in a huge pile of jobs that might match up. Too much work!
Then there was this free, rinky-dink one, which was perhaps the most fun of all. Change your favorite movie from "Billy Madison" to "Star Wars" and you magically transform from a teacher to a computer engineer!
Feng Shui it is.
