Times like this I realise my voice just isn't up to it. Eight days after the death cold began, I am still coughing and spluttering and struggling to read a whole story to the kids. So easy to damage your voice... Pretty sure I already have.
My principal is lining up an appointment with an EQ staffing officer for me tomorrow - so I can talk about going permanent if I want to. Not sure I want to. She's happy to keep me on contracts.
So what will my next career involve? Not sure I can do that much but teach. And teaching is lucrative and easy and fun. Working for a church would be heaps harder. Children's minister. Now, there's a bad job. Admin, admin, admin, admin, admin, child safe, blue cards, FORMS. Nope.
Full time christian song writer. No. I'd be driven to madness. (And I'm not good enough.)
Here's an idea. I'd like a job as an ideas person. You come to me with a situation - something not working quite right, you need a new approach, a new employee, new model for business, a new employer, a new church - and I'll come up with an idea to make things better. I'll describe the outcome you want in some detail and tell you what to do to get there. I like doing this. I'd like doing it even more if there was money attached. Anyone want to employ me?
