Hello there Bay Area worker bees... care to help a girl trying to reinvent herself (yet again)? I need to find my niche here, but I feel a little lost sometimes. If I pour my heart out, can you share your local insights with me & maybe point me in some good new directions? I thank you profusely in advance for your help. There is much, much...
I may be opening up too much here, but nothing ventured nothing gained, right? Here goes...
I'm very much a native Southern Californian (my family came there in 1909, it's not my fault). I needed a change, so I jumped at the chance when I was recruited up here for work. It hasn't been as easy of a transition as I'd expected though. It almost feels like I need to learn entirely new social/professional skills because of the differences in culture. Also, unfortunately I've learned that some people here are almost hostile upon discovering I moved from Los Angeles. (My mechanic actually said to me: "We won't hold that agains
I do need everyone's honest opinion.
I'm afraid I might be a 'spoiled brat', a 'high maintenance girl' or something of the sort. I really don't want to be!
I don't usually like to talk about myself, but I suppose I would have to in order for someone to honestly and truthfully answer the question. Please keep in mind that i'm saying this in all modesty, Im not trying to hurt anyone's feelings!!
I'm 16 and live in what I concider to be a well-to-do area. My aprent's home is on a hill with a gate at the top of the driveway. Our home is 4,500 square feet, however I have a room with a closet, no personal bathroom or anyhting. We do have a pool, but it's a bit more nesicary because there is no public one, and it's nice to invite friends and family over for backward barbecues during the summer. I personally thinkt eh house is very nice, but we did pay for it, and my parents just sold our other house to pay for the mortgage. We purchaced it from j rockcliff realtors, it's not like it was
My dream job with the US foreign service fell through. So should I stick with my enjoyable, decent paying but completely dead end job, go to law school or.. figure out a third option?
For the State department, I passed the written test, passed my mandarin phone interview, but didn't get invited to the oral interview. Maybe my essays weren't so great, maybe my work history is flakey, maybe it was budget cuts, whatever the reason, it's not happening, at least this year. I will likely re-apply but that could mean years before I'd be able to start, if I ever get hired at all.
In the meantime, I need to make some decisions about my medium-term future. Currently, I teach LSAT preparation classes for people who want to go to law school. I actually enjoy this job quite a bit and the pay is pretty good, I make around $45k working 20-30 hour weeks about 9 months a year. I also have a deal right now where I travel around for work, so for those 9 months I get use of a company ca
What should I give my grandad for Christmas?
The annual quandary of what to give my grandad for Christmas has arrived. He's 81 and can't really see. My mother gave my brother her one idea: a talking watch. But, as she said, he doesn't need two talking watches. He lives in Yorkshire, but will be visiting us in the US for Christmas, so his presents have to be able to fit in his suitcase (and not weigh much).
I suppose our great fear is that he'll sort of give up on living because many of the things he likes to do have become difficult as his vision has gotten worse. Part of me wants to come up with some amazing present that will make him more excited about life, but what that is, I have no idea.
He used to read a lot (lots of mysteries and thrillers--Dick Francis, Clive Cussler, Inspector Morse, Tom Clancy, John Grisham, etc.) and still does, but at a much slower pace. (A year ago, he could read large print without additional magnification, but he can't get larg
