I am about to give up my dream of working in the industry. I’ve been told that unemployment, unhappy employment and poorly compensated employment have become epidemics. Well, I am earning but not just in the manner and place I would have wanted. But I cannot endure in the current exercise of mindlessness which I have had to bear for the sake of survival. Nor can I wait longer for the right industry to have myself enslaved to. I can feel the whiteness invading the roots of my hair. I must act now or I will have a lot of regrets to mull over as I sit on my rocking chair, absently rubbing my tongue over toothless gums.
I’m thinking of shifting careers. Tell me, is web design and internet marketing really as horrific as I think it is or will I fit right in? There were a few subjects in high school that made my bowels harden and loosen in turns--- math, physics, entrepreneurship and computer programming. All required my teachers to close their eyes in pity so their pens could stray and let me pass. But at least I retained some measure of comprehension for the first three subjects. Computer programming however left me comatose and in limbo. From the first day of class to the last, I understood nothing. I wonder how I ever got a numerical grade when the equivalent of nothing is nothing. My teacher must have had her eyes shut really tight or she must have been related to David Blaine.
I’d like to suspect that it wasn’t really my fault. Am I really such an idiot or did I just have a skunk for a teacher? There’s only one way to find out. If I really am an idiot, my bowel movement will tell me so as soon as I read my first tutorial.
The question is where do I begin?
