I couldn’t answer

Standard

FRIEND ON THE PHONE: What’s your next move?

I filled the silence with a deep, drawn out “ummm” and followed it up with a full sigh.

I couldn’t answer the question. At that moment I felt like I was asked to choose a career and stick with it. Of course, that was not the intention of my friend, she was just being polite. She unknowingly held up a mirror with her question and I was reflecting all my insecurities.

“Uhh, well, I mean, you know, maybe, I can write and..”

Then, she felt like she had to help me out. You know you’re in trouble when a normal conversation turns into Whose Line is it Anyway?

“Screenwriting? No, not full-time, then PR? No, then, marketing. Oh, events. Maybe you should go out on your own. No, ok, maybe you should try it on a project basis…”

At this point I felt that I could have told her what I really want to do, but it is a difficult thing to explain and I had taken up too much of her time already. So, let me take up yours. I want to be a body hair stylist. No, not a waxer. I mean a designer, an artist. Work at a salon and design stars, happy faces, landing strips even do some body hair coloration. Talk about community service, this type of work promotes improved self-confidence and self-image.

Although I scoured through CareerBuilder and Monster for job postings in this category and came up empty, I did find other websites that will undoubtedly help me in my new career.
