Wishing I Had a Dream Career

Monica: Uh-huh, but I’m sure you can handle this. I mean, I have won awards for my organizational skills, but, uh, I’m sure you’ll do fine.
Phoebe: You won awards?
Monica: Mm-mh. I printed them out on my computer.

Match has found his calling. Even though academy is tough I can see he’s enjoying what he’s learning. He comes home with stories of something new he’s learned about the laws and he’s got that spark of enthusiasm in his eye. I wish I had that type of enthusiasm for my job. It’s no secret that I’m not happy with my career. I never picked it for myself; I fell into my IT job like so many people do, so it makes sense that I’m less than thrilled with it.

I’ve been doing some research online and trying to figure out what job would be good for me based on my personality type. I’ve toyed with the idea of teaching but I don’t know that it’s my dream. I love staying organized and I’m ridiculously prepared for things. I wrote my wedding thank you cards the minute we received gifts. I had them all sent out just days after the wedding. I’m pretty much Monica on Friends. So what job would best suit me? Do people hire professional organizers? I suppose I could try my hand at event planning because I’m organized but I don’t know if I could deal with bridezillas.

If anyone has any tips out there for figuring out what my true calling would be based on my personality, I would absolutely love to hear them. 🙂
