Right On the Money!

Your Career Type: Artistic

You are expressive, original, and independent.
Your talents lie in your artistic abilities: creative writing, drama, crafts, music, or art.

You would make an excellent:

Actor - Art Teacher - Book Editor
Clothes Designer - Comedian - Composer
Dancer - DJ - Graphic Designer
Illustrator - Musician - Sculptor

The worst career options for your are conventional careers, like bank teller or secretary.

I took this little test and the results are above. I am an artist and art professor, so I would say it was accurate in my case. The worst career options for me are a bank teller and a secretary. No kidding! You definitely would not want ME to be taking your money at the bank. Lord knows, I have a hard encough time just taking care of my own finances. I would much rather be making stuff.

I have to admit that I was a secretary once - for three weeks. It was pure hell and I did not even want to get out of bed in the mornings, and I lived for the lunch break. After three weeks, I decided I would rather starve than make my income this way. My spirit was dying by the day. It was a time in my life when I really needed the job and the money, but I could not live my life this way. One day, after my lunch break, I went to the owner of the little company and said, "I want to turn in my resignation." It was one of the smartest moves I have ever made, when I acknowledged that I did not have what it takes to be a secretary. It was a living nightmare for me. I can't see myself doing any kind of job that requires standardization and doing the same thing every day. I thrive on change and changing and changes.

Thank God, I am doing the work I was created to do. But to think, I could have spent the rest of my life in a job I hated. I refused to do that. I just wonder how many people are doing a job every day that they actually hate. I think there are a lot of them out there. I say, follow your bliss and do what you love.

I love your blog. It's so colorful and interesting to look at even if you don't feel like reading. Thanks for the comment. Winter is coming. Also i took the career quiz and came up with artistic too although I mostly focus on fiber arts - quilting, knitting, spinning...I'm a very tactile person.
