Do any of these jobs appeal to you?
Right now, I'm a peer mentor at the County Behavioral Health Department. It's only part-time, but I love what I'm doing. I may just consider going into mental health, but am not sure what. But the one job still isn't a lot. I'm not sure what else to do on the side though. I've worked so many years in retail abut am not sure I want to go back there. And when I was fired from a restaurant job in 2001, I vowed never to work in the food business again. And so far that has been true. There is one bar I've gone to regularly for the karaoke, but haven't been going to lately. Since I can't have alcohol, I'm not sure working for a bar is appropriate for me 🙂
Since I work in the morning to afternoon, graveyard shifts are out. Before I was hired on as mentor and after I had completed my training classes, I briefly worked the graveyard shift at a candy factory through temp agency. It was only for a while and I then went back to working swing shift, which I had been doing off and an. I have not worked at the factory for nearly a year now.
I've often felt as an introvert, that my career choices are limited. Some people have disagreed with this, however. Ia hate the stereotype that says introverts should only do work from home, a phrase that has triggered my anxiety.
I've never wanted to be a teacher and have not been much of a leader, but now I wonder if I should start a group for writing, since none can be currently found in my town and I hate the idea of driving 50 miles to the nearest ones. I've posted on a Facebook page we have for happenings in our town, asking if anyone is interested in starting such a group, but have gotten no response.
What would you do?
BTW, my memoir writing class finished on Wednesday night and the instructor will be offering an advanced memoir writing class in the fall, working on a longer piece with the goal of getting published.
