#SMCSFBlogOff - My profession is...

One of my sde activities lately is to study young people, in an anthropological way.
No, I'm kidding, I don't do this (well, I mean...).

We always have trainees at work and some of my friends have kids who are groing old.
Just like we did.

Young people are all alike but all different!

Their reactions, way of seeing things, of imagining and conceiving their lives.

I know one who makes you wish to take him under your wing and help them go through life. It is the case for one of the youngsters I tutored some time ago. He is growing old. At the end of trainee period I felt like a mommy setting free her little birdy to face alone this wicked world. I still fell like mothering him.
Of course, if I ever do this I suppose he's going to put me back to my place. He is a gentle guy so I suppose he won't be harsh.
I'll try my best not to do this.

I had another trainee who always needed some orientation. I think she still does. She always shifting from one idea to another, from one profession to another. She was taking classes at two different universities which weren't complementary at all. They were quite opposite to each other.
Not that I do mind opposite studies, I've done myself, but not at the same time. I finished one then started another.
She is stil studying, I don't know where she is going to go. Maybe she will find a third profession and she will stick to it! Or not.

Change our minds is normal, specially in this world where you can learn and discover tons of things. I've studied geology, art, I've worked with IT, and now I'm at the business side. Who knows where I'll be in a few years! I don't. I kind of imagine, I have to work my way through it.

Do you know where you'll be in... 3-5 years time?

heje There will always be things to study if we're willing, and there's always someone who'll think we're "young". In 3-5 yrs I expect to get younger because of my love of life & gracefully older by accepting the life that comes age. Y tu? BB2U
