Future Careers

I’ve been thinking a lot about it myself but Findlay is at the stage just now where they are talking about careers at school an awful lot. They are setting up a bank for his class to run and the way they are talking about it all it would seem as though they are expecting it to be real work experience rather than an introduction to earning and saving money. On the plus side it has actually got them talking a bit more about ‘what they want to be when they grow up’. It’s the next step from wanting to be an astronaut or a fireman I suppose.

In Findlay’s case he’s went straight to the ‘I want the job with the most money’ and then very quickly realised that he might not get that straight away. I’ve been listening to a lot of Scroobius Pip recently and I don’t think he has a track that hasn’t managed to get me thinking. The most recent one on repeat has been The Struggle which contain the following lyrics.

People underestimate the value of dreaming,
That which you aspire to provides a roof, a ceiling;
In particular the dreams there’s no way of achieving,
Like, “I wanna be Brad Pitt,” or something equally fleeting.

When we got talking about what he’d like to be I found it really hard not to shoot down his ideas as either unobtainable or very hard to do. The thing is though without that ability to dream and maybe take a leap for something way out there you never look up. You never aspire to anything other than what is right in front of you. As Mr Pip says those thoughts and dreams give you structure and something to look forward to.

We swiftly moved on to other jobs that he might like and he settled on being a professional gamer as his friend says you can earn anything up to £200 per week and as many free games and consoles as you could fit in your house or sell!

I did burst his bubble on that one a little. I explained that when you add it up it isn’t that much money but I did explain earning cash by winning competitions and the idea behind sponsorship for free stuff. He hasn’t gave up on the idea yet but he thinks he’ll either need to move to the US or to Asia if he wants to make any money. I did offer up games journalist as a possible different side of things as he was more interested in the free games than the money if truth be told.

With all this in mind Nairn really surprised me this evening. He wandered into the kitchen and declared that the ‘best and most important toy he’s going to have when he grows up is his imagination’. I think we made a good one there.

    It is good to never underestimate the power of imagination and dreaming, for some of the powerful minds of this world emerged just because of something small they imagined or dreamed of. Especially young people who are looking for jobs in the current era where jobs are hard to find, it is good that they try to pursue their dreams rather than looking for jobs that may end up to be not paying so well.

    It is important not to let the salt water dry on the phone because it will leave salt deposits behind that will cause the phone not to work.
    Now you can have money to spare for that Samsung Galaxy phone or any of those those T-Mobile G1 Android Cell
    Phones, Verizon cell phones or Sprint cell phones
    you want. There are many types of occupations whereby employers need to obtain addresses and personal information of
    individuals for one reason or another.

    Just grab a can opener and open those packs with ease.
    Wouldn’t it be nice if there were some short cuts to experiencing
    more blessings in a marriage. Well before you let your friends borrow your special items, take a picture of them holding the
    item so you can remember later on.

    ‘ After graduating from college, Einstein still did not locate a
    job related to his field, physics. This ensures that
    an online site cannot have an article on Wikipedia simply because
    it is the largest of the kind. Your family will be the last you to definitely know or believe
    that you’ve got a crucial award, that your particular
    clients are successful or that you have been helping
    a huge number of people.
