What Do *You* Think I Should Do?

All of this down time has me thinking a lot about what I could / should do career-wise if my health straightens out, or even if it doesn't. It's weird... I was forced out of the loop before I was able to get a reasonable understanding of what different jobs entail and how much I would enjoy doing them. I was going to school with a plan for how to discover some of that, but as I say, I didn't get far enough to actually find it out.

I've been told I should do a lot of different things by people over the years. Singer, lawyer, programmer, writer, artist, minister, all sorts of stuff. It has me wondering, what do you think I should do ideally, or even not ideally if things don't change? I'm hoping a lot of people read this one and comment just for curiosity's sake if nothing else. So, read this and comment!

Heya Andy.

Well, you know. I don't know...but I say do what makes you happy. I remember you saying that you wanted to pursue theatre if health allowed. You could write, you have the ability. You could certainly follow journalism and be successful :) But whatever makes you happy.

You could try to go pro-blogger.

There is a phone-based customer service job out there that lets you work from home. I did that for a couple years, not really mentally stressful, challenging, or stimulating but paid the bills.

Your RPG worlds look really developed. You could write RPGS or do illustrations for D&D books.

CSS web design for MT or B2Evo sounds good. Get a whole portfolio of packages out there, offer the really high traffic ugly sites a snapshot of what they *COULD* look like. I think you're pretty adept at that looking at this site.

I heard about LiveOps through a Business weekly article about cutting edge entrepreneurs under 30, so there is a legit factor there.

Probably not what you're looking for but it does have the work from home aspect to its advantage.

I bookmarked LiveOps just in case. I think a job like this would kill me outright, but I'm not positive. Phone conversations are tough on me, particularly when there is pressure involved.

Any other takers?
