Spatial Relations Aren't My Thing

"Anything you want to be, really. No, wait, maybe steer clear of engineering type jobs."

These were the words from my high school guidance counselor as she reviewed the aptitude test I had taken a few weeks earlier. She was right about the engineering thing. I remember how flummoxed I was by those unfolded box questions...really, who did know what shape they would make if they were folded on their creases? Not me.

Steve's high school aptitude test suggested Bus Driver as his #1 best-fitting job.

And now I find myself considering what the next step might be in my multi-layered panorama of a career. My current position is changing... compensation policies morphing... and after much thought and prayer, Steve and I have decided that it's time for me to move on. We're good with that decision, but the question remains: Move on to where?

Not engineering, apparently. Or box making.

at least Steve has bus driving to fall back on if CFC goes a bust.

I'm sure whatever you are led to it will be spectacular. Praying for a boxfree job.
