I might have to change my handle

I have been working on a plan, secretly. That plan was to change jobs within the school district that I work at the present time to a job where I could maintain my benefits, yet start working on a master's degree. I have applied for various positions and those positions, if I got any of them, would be the first sit-down, office type jobs ever for me. No more grunting around. It is a weird thought for me to be dressed nicely at work and not smelling of sweat and other random job related odors. It will be nice to not come home each night with the pain associated from working physical jobs all of my life. It will be nice to start the second phase of my higher education. I am afraid though of becoming civilized, not being able to move around and be outside, and having to watch my weight. It will be for the better, though.

If this happens, will you all still be my friends?

That all depends. Are you going to become a loan officer and try to reposses my car?

Claire said...

Ooooh, good luck!

I only wish it were possible for you to escape a life of working in general. Then you could hire me on as your "assistant," wherein I would really be more of a bartender.

I really hope it works out!

And as long as you don't turn all hoity-toity on me, I will still be your friend.

Once upon a time, I had one a them thar office jobs and if you have one, you sure need friends,so count me in. If you become a student though,well,I'll do my best but school makes me break out in hives and clever students make me break out in low self esteem.

I love secret plans. I'd hoped it would have a revolving bookcase, a ring full of poison, and a long lost letter beneath the davenport. But this is good, too.

I'll still be your friend even if you get that weird male pear shaped body and have a front butt. How's that for love?!

NYD~ I'd rather just be a repo man. I'd think I'd feel less dirty.

Claire~ Thanks!

Jay~ That idea of yours sounds so much like "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas". Very gonzo, my friend.

O-Girl~ Hoity toity would be something that I'd really have to work at becoming.

Karyn~ You'd follow me to the ends of the earth if there was Nutella involved.

Julie~ I could always incorporate a few of those things into my repertoire. Thanks for the ideas!

Meggypoo~ That is dedication.
