Tell me the story of your first job. You must make up the entire story. None of that crazy true stuff that bores everyone. Make up a story about your first job. Ready? Go.

The truth can sometimes be more exciting than telling a storry. But, I could tell you the truth, and you wouldn't know, because you don't know me...

I know you're intelligent, have vision and mobility issues, have extraordinary common sense and you're married to a good man nearing retirement. You are complimentary toward most people but don't really care for them in general. You have years and experience under your belt and you'll call a spade, a spade.

My first job as a teacher in a certain college was so unforgettable for I met someone in the campus. I can't forget the guy he's an Architect now. He came to my faculty office just to instantly propose marriage . I was so shocked by the way. He was stalking on me without my conscious knowledge. He's tall 5'10, curly hair, chinito, handsome. That time he was 5th year in BS Architecture . Because I was shocked I told him, No. He was serious in his intention. He kept on inviting me to their house to meet his parents but I refused, until he graduated and never saw him again for years. I saw his name a Board Passser. I was a new teacher that time wanting to explore only to realize, I rejected gold. He visited me 4 years ago and said he married another for I don't like him, but the fact is I realized late I liked him too. It's destiny

So, I was in charge of a body. I had to take care of it, carrying it to places, waiting for boss to decide when it's time to let it peacefully rot and disappear. It was fine until it got heavier and started developing weird things, pimples and hairs in the wrong places , but boss has told me to keep on going. I've had this job for years. Now I'm making this body respond to a discussion on myLot. Wait, this might actually be true.

I have seen the works that you've posted and I think you're creative and you'll find some success in time. Your problem is selling your design for a million dollars gave you unrealistic expectations for future pieces

@MommyOfEli2013 Are there Flea Markets near you where you could put out your pieces? You could donate a piece or two to businesses that see a lot of traffic. They may display them, getting you some free exposure. A bar or restaurant? A library?

My first job.... I was not crazy. I was hyper smart. The only thing I looked forward to was eating the nice meal at lunch time. It seems ages ago. I sat in mud neatly washing the plastic milk packets of their stink and fat. Then a v cut at the bottom. place some coconut barks to block and not block add mud mixed with fertilizers, place it aside...make 50 such packets, then go to koleus plants, look for axillary growth, pluck them, go back to the 50 packets, plant them, pour a little water, finish it with all 50. Now wash your face and hands, go to nice shade - eat the delicious lunch. Wait for the nursery owner, he will tell story. At the end of the day, he will give some money. Give it to the poor. That is Khar kamai ..I loved the job.

Sasquatch teamed up with Paul Bunyan. The two followed me as I shoveled gravel under park picnic benches. They said I wasn't good enough or strong enough to be part of the Youth Conservation Corps cause I was a puny girl. I threw GORP at them, keeping the M and Ms for myself and making sure to pelt them with years old raisins.

From what I understand, Bunyan teamed up with Sasquatch for the Corps but Bunyan used Sasquatch very often for hygenic paper. Sasquatch finally ended the partnership and disappeared into the woods and lives a life of recluse. Bunyan was calling it a day and gathered all the raisins to bring home to his Babe. Shoveling "gravel" comes pretty easy for both of us lol. You really did well with your story

My first job was the internships I did when I graduated as a Middle Technician in Executive Secretary, I was assigned to a department store but Home Depot style that are things or furniture for home on credit. I was 18 years old I connected to the internet 18 years ago without knowing that employees could not because the internet at that time was business and costly. I paid the bill I owed and left there. What is my fault that they did not leave their computers with a password hahaha.

I would imagine that a small shop can get really busy at times and there are not enough employees to handle it. You did well in graduating University. Do you have a path that you've chosen as a career?
