Ah, the endless possibilities

Okay, so now what do I do?

I'm young and jobless and have a tiny bit of cash. The lease on my apartment is now on a month-to-month basis, so I can leave whenever I please. I have no kids, no husband, no boyfriend even. Just a stupid cat. Who can be dealt with if necessary. I have a car payment and a student loan, but no real financial obligations besides those.

Should I get a regular engineering job? Or should I do something fun and exciting? What about joining the army, or the navy or something? I would get to see the world. Or should I move to the Caribbean and become a barmaid? Or move to California and become . . . an engineer still? Or a barmaid? Should I just take off across the country, washing dishes here and there to pay for my meals? Should I move to Japan? No, that sounds foolish. What about Australia? What about Amsterdam? Marijuana and prostitutes notwithstanding, Amsterdam is a wonderful city that I love to death. And my wallet and passport were stolen in Amsterdam, so you'd think that I'd hate it, but I don't! What kind of job could I get in Amsterdam? Don't say working in the Red Light District.

What outrageous dreams do YOU have? Can I steal them?

I've always wanted to be a lion tamer. Or tigers, whatever, as long as they're big cats. Or I could move to Florida and work with sea lions, I like sea lions as well.

Or how about a stewardess? Would I get to see the world as a stewardess, or just a lot of hotels? Someone suggested the Peace Corps, but I'm not sure that's my steez. Too much . . . do-goodery.

So what? What?

    So it wasn't until late 2013 that I learned how amazing Ursula K. Le Guin is, and how much I adore her. I have been slow in getting through her…
