Former jobs

Tell about your job (Or one you've had)



Hmmm... the hardest job is being a mom. But as it isn't paid (not in money), most people don't consider it a job.

It's ridiculous that our government wants mothers to get a job and then complain they're not available enough for schools and to watch the kids.

But eh...I was about to blog about a job I had.

But which one shall I blog about?
I've had so many jobs, that I can't even mention them all.

I've been a telephonist at the largest company of our country.
I was the youngest. In the evenings my dad came to collect me.

Or shall I blog about being a typist for that stubborn writer?

Or about being the youngest staffmember at the university?
Teaching methods and statistics to young people who were about the same age.
I loved the job.
But being the youngest member of staff I was almost the most vulnerable one.
They kicked me out when they had to safe money...
I would have kept my job if the other young member of staff wouldn't have been married and didn't have a child. His accident (the kid), was his luck.

If they'd ask me next minute I would be back within 5!

The most creative job I had was being a balletdancer.
I was paid for what I loved most.
I've enjoyed each and every bit of it.
Once in a while I still make a choreography.

Ballet was a true creative outlet.
It also gave a feeling of balance to my life.
Being a scientist was just a part of "me".
I still miss it every day.

Especially now I'm suffering the aftereffects: the back- and bone-aches
many former balletdancers have to deal with.

But in my mind and memory I still feel the same light, dancing, fairy object that worked hours of sweat to bring the public a view into a world of dreams.

  2. It must have been wonderful to be able to work at something like ballet. Shame that all the things we love seem to be bad for us.
