After I'm done with my court mandated "alcohol awareness" classes, I really want to get me some new education. So far I'm deciding between being certified as a bartender, a food service sanitation expert or an auto mechanic. I've favoring the latter; I really miss working with my hands, and although I won't be allowed to drive a car for some time, I think fixing them would suit me well.
Fuck getting an MBA; I don't lack ambition, but I am ambivalent towards the business world (again, ironic since I subscribe to BusinessWeek and always read the business section of any newspaper first). I don't regret my existing bachelors degree in Film/Video production, but I almost wish I went and got trained as plumber, or something union oriented.
Le sigh. One thing is for sure, I don't want to be a fucking Bar Back for much longer. The hours suck, I lack any health benefits, and my back is always in pain. I want more out life than this. That being said, I am glad I have at least this shitty job...going in tonight! But this isn't sustainable. Then again, neither is being tied to a desk job.
