those types of questions so much that I do it for free. I will turn
that into a career at some point. What do you love? Do you like
to write and like to eat out? Then maybe you should be a
restaurant critic. Think about your strengths and capitalize on them.
I love: running, playing soccer, reading for fun, friends, parties, dogs, cats, horses - any animal, learning about different people, meeting new people, learning new ideas and skills. My strengths are: outgoing, friendly, like everyone (almost) and (usually) most like me, good with animals, athletic, high energy, hard working (usually), not dumb, good with math and science (usually but not great), kind. My weakness (for balance): impatient, lose interest and stop paying attention, bored fast, niave (sp?) - I know, first I like everyone without "common sense" (my dad argues that I am too friendly to everyone without "using my head" and sometimes "softheaded"
), not brillant, good grades with hard work and attention but bad grades with less work and attention, now hating school, probably immature, sometimes lazy.
I don't know a career that uses the strengths. I could: meet new dogs while running and doing math in my head on the road to making new friends. No.
