My rant- Okay I had bought Apollo (Betta) about a month ago and he was only mine for about 2 days then my mom fell in love with him and now she's really into fish. At first I thought this would be really cool but Grr I feed them all in the morning usually 2 pellets and 2 pellets at night. But my mom insisted that her betta needed more and of course I told her that no,He would get bloated then. So of course she didn't listen to me and Apollo is now severly bloated! And of course the person she blames is me! This is the first betta she's ever had and now she pretty much thinks she knows it all! -_- She won't admit the fact that she CAN be wrong sometimes. Grr this is just really upsetting me! Sorry about the long rant.

Alex- I just want you to know my mom is the same way. Ugh.

Rant: I need to figure out what to do with rest of my life. I can't continue living in my bf's parents attic rest of my life.
Anyone have any career ideas for me? Preferably something outdoors. I would be homicidal if I had a desk job. Haha!

I really want to be a train conductor, but I'm pretty sure they're sexist and want a big burly man. :( I then looked at Park Ranger, but the outlook on those jobs in the future are not well as volunteer work takes over paid jobs.
So my brain currently looks like this (-------). I have no idea at all. I would go to college if need be, but it needs to be something I know would be good and that there is a high enough demand that I would be able to get the job after I rack up those student loans. lol!

I've seen female train conductors that work on the Metra line in Chicago.

What about going to trade school and becoming an electrician, or something? I have friends that make good money working for big electric service companies, and they get to be outside a lot, hahaha. Besides, trade school isn't like college--it's shorter and there's less BS.

There is a big, horribly ugly, black and white orb spider that makes a web between my car and my neighbor's car. It's been over two weeks and he re-spins that web every night despite the fact that I pull out and break it every morning. My husband won't even get in on that side now because he's run into the web twice and it snaps in your face like a rubberband (I also ran into it once). I have to pull out, break the web and then my husband will come get in the car. This morning when I came back from dropping hubby off, the spider was sitting on my neighbors side mirror, staring at me. I ran in the house! When will he stop!?!?

Saylor- I know of one or two too, but they've been in the field for years now. I think it might be because I have no experience that will help them at all.
The electrician idea is ok, but not quiet what I'm looking for. :)
And no to being a cop. Only if I was on the K9 Unit would I consider it, and to do so you need to be in the field already for a minimum of two years.

On the other note: I completley forgot I have to be at work today 2 hours earlier than normal. I should have not complained about my hours, now I gotta figure out how to get everything I need to done in the next 2 hours.
