Off topic – Career Path
My brother has been out of work for four months now and I can start to see him loosing hope. Although he has had offers for full time work he wants something that's part time. I've been there and it sucks.
I guess he is at a cross roads... does he find a job or head to school and try something new? Personally I've had this battle a couple times but it always comes down to.. "what do I want?"
We are both young.. I'm 22 and he's 19. We are smart, good looking but not wealthy so I would have to support myself while going to school. Sometimes you hear people say "I could do anything.." really I think this applies to me and my brother. I honestly know that we have limitless potential to do anything. The world is our oyster.
Here are some of my career paths I've been thinking about becoming an evil man #2, a layer, a physician, or maybe a biochemist.
Evil man #2 – You know when you watch a movie and you see the main evil dude who runs everything and he always has a man #2 doing the dirty work. I think I'd like to be this guy. Like in "Clear and Present Danger" where the main drug lord had his second in command as Felix. I'd like to be this guy. Basically I want someone to contact me and train me as an apprentice. Where else would you get this type of training? Do they have a course some place for "evil man #2" training? Really, I'm serious!
Layer – I love to argue. Even if I agree with something you're saying I'll probably twist it into something where I'm write and you're wrong. I know I could go far as a layer. But I can see down the road where I have a rape / abuse / molester case and I'm either the defense or prosecution attorney and I'm unable to get justice. Maybe I get the guy off.. Maybe I can't nail him but I know he did it. This is where I would probably take justice into my own hands.. And I can see where people would. This is why I don't think I can do it and stay out of trouble.
Physician – I think I'd be good but it takes major $$$ and time.
Biochemist – This stuff really interests me but it takes major $$$ and time. The reason I like this field is that you finish school and get a job at a major drug / research company. You pretty much have an unlimited budget for research and you devote your life to this. This seems like a really neat thing. And I'd like to do it.
What are your career plans and how can I become evil man #2?
