fucking in a brothel ... led to arrest (is my guess) .

Meanwhile, I've been a research assistant (molecular genetics, biochemistry, biophysics, neuroscience, behavioral genetics, social sciences), a child care worker, a writer/editor, an art gallery assistant, a programmer (in a research lab), a psychologist, a therapist, a case manager, a supervisor, and a shelter attendant. I don't consider it a continual career reboot so much as a mad trajectory. I quit a PhD program and got two master's degrees in the process. If it made financial sense to do something new (educationally speaking) every decade or so, I'd probably consider it. I'm happy as a social worker and there are many different jobs I could do and populations I could work with, which is why I think it works for me as a profession. I also really enjoy working with the homeless, so I hope to stick with this for a while as well. If I could do it all over again, I'd consider engineering or computer science, but I'd probably be terribly bored, which I never am now.

I was a high school English teacher for five years and quit after I just couldn't take writing and administering another goddamned standardized test to keep up with No Child Left Behind. I worked as an assistant manager for a university bookstore (dealing mainly with professors and their fucking whining) ordering the course materials and whatnot. My favorite part of that job was the manual labor--helping the delivery guys unload their trucks in the loading dock and then bringing in the books and putting them on the shelves. I guess it was that I didn't have to deal with people much that made me like that aspect of it so much. Anyway, my boss was a bit of a cunt and I couldn't stand to be there anymore. So, I looked at my options and went back to teaching this year. There were a lot of reasons I came back and the belief that NCLB wouldn't be the only thing the schools cared about was part of that.

Now, it looks as though I'm getting laid off (I'll know for sure by March 15) and I'll be forced to do another career reboot myself. The problem is that I really don't know what I want to do (other than be a late night janitor, but there's not enough money in that), but I know that I have to earn enough to pay rent--though the wife wants to own a home and all and I do, too. Fuck, things are pretty complicated in the flocat household right now. So, I guess I can give you fuck all advice, really.

there is no part of me that mistakes advertising for art. have i ever posted any of my corporate design work here? no. i post art here from time to time, since i do illustration work on a freelance basis, and of course, have my personal art


"meaning" and "worth" are pretty subjective.

to be fair though, i do very little advertising work. the majority of the work i do is in branding. people pay a lot of money to portray their company in the best possible way. to some, that's worth plenty.

"Branding" is pure and simple advertising, nothing more.

You know that advertising used to be called by it's proper name of propaganda, right?

It seems I have to learn the proper terms. What I want is to piss off car owners. So yes.

if you want to group it into a category, PR is probably more accurate

I was the chief hydrologist for one of Texas' largest engineering firms for 13 years. I quit to straighten out my wife's business' finances and then decided that I really wanted to make money doing photography. Although I really wanted to do nude photography, it turns out that people will pay to have you go to their parties and take photos.
