If you could chose to be successful in any career — what would it be, and why?
i think i just wrote the most strange and wicked poem that i have ever written
see 4 your self its the Wishes 4 U poem
why wicked? i aint a mother and got no child (nor do i wish to be one or have one)
I just read your "Racism Beat It...Now!" The line, "differences make us strong" is beautiful. It is so simple, yet so true. Thank you for sharing yourself.
thanks hon, mmm one line he?
guess i should try writting one liners then?
Madame at a Lesbian Chicken Ranch!! I think you can figure out why!!!
What happens at the Chicky Ranch....stays at the Chicky Ranch!!
Private shareholders meeting in the Madame's office.....
Can I come hold the shareholders?
I really like working in a "mom & pop" motorcycle shop! I like small businesses, and I love motorcycles, so as long as my partner keeps it real with me (communication), I'm good where I'm at!
Years ago, I had a Kawasaki 2 stroke, triple. I bought it used, and rode it for quite awhile. That bike was cherry - custom paint and chrome. The guy who bought it from me shipped it to Japan. That thing was a bullet.... it was a classic bike, every guy who saw it - wanted it. It had never been laid down.
I've always been attracted to fast cars, and fast bikes. I had to stop riding for my own safety - I could get kinda crazy. Never wore a helmet - and I enjoyed riding Mulholland Drive ( I'm sure you know where I'm talking about) like a total speed freak. It's surprising I'm still alive...
I'm glad that you enjoy what you do Fastgurrrl.... not everyone can say that. You're a lucky woman.
Mulholland Drive...HELLLLLL YES!
I studied development and what I'd really like to be doing is making a difference in the humanitarian sector somewhere--perhaps working on children's issues. My measure of success has more to do with how many lives I change and less to do with revenue; however, at present, I am buried in student loan debt, so some sort of financial success that would get me out of that so that I can afford to be making very little money in the long-term would be appreciated.
I can totally see measuring "success" in how we touch someone's life - especially children. I wish that factor was impressed on us more when we're growing up. It seems as though the term "success" is somehow correlated with financial gain, when actually nothing could be further from the truth...
I bet you'll do awesome things with your passion....
Now if only I could figure out a way to pay off my insane amount of student loans in order to get started on all that....
My sister has worked with autistic children for a good portion of her teaching career. She really relies on the volunteers that work with her.... she's told me that without the help of recent grads, she couldn't do her job. It's a win-win for everyone involved.
I remember when she graduated from UCLA with her degree in psychology, she never thought she would end up as in debt as she was. It took along time for her to pay it off.... but, the positive thing is that she's changed so many lives with her dedication. We were just talked about this very subject recently, and she told me that she couldn't imagine NOT giving herself to her students the way she has...
She would have made more money as a psychologist and paid her debt off sooner, but she found her heart instead.
That seems like a fair trade.
I do when I can, but the problem is, I didn't have the credit for the loans in the first place, so many of them are in my mother's name (she's still dealing with the long-term effects of breast cancer treatment) and/or co-signed by my grandfather (who is 78 and dealing with heart issues). I hate that they're stressed out because of me, so I spend most of my time looking for job opportunities. I never thought I'd say this, and I certainly wouldn't be where I am today (and where I feel I belong) if I hadn't gone to university right away, but I find myself wishing I'd waited on school....
Too late for that now, but what do I do? Go back to the States where I could probably find more work (even if it was unrelated to my field) but would almost definitely be miserable or stay here and continue to put off paying back loans? I certainly couldn't move to one of the cities where most work in developing countries takes place. That's about as expensive as staying in Paris. So, I'd probably end up back in Tennessee waiting tables. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but I know I would be miserable. There's no easy answer, but I've got a feeling that something will work out before too much longer....
Your Mother and Grandfather are wonderful people for supporting you like they have. They must have been inspired by your abilities. So often, family support is imperative when we continue our higher education.
You know, I'm curious.... in France do they have any programs for recent grads to work in their chosen fields in smaller towns, or in under-served communities as a way of paying off some student debts? I know here in the States, medical students can give of their time in communities where medical services are needed, and have their student loans reduced or even eliminated. It's almost like 'volunteering' but, you do get compensated.
Maybe you should check it out..... there may be some similar programs there.
Actually, I attended an American university here, so my loans are American. If I'd gone to a French school (that is, if I'd felt my French was up to par when I finished high school) I wouldn't really have student loans. It's typically cheap (sometimes free) to attend French universities. But instead I picked a school that (I didn't know at the time) is one of the most expensive universities in the world, period. Smart.

Oh, yes yes. I consider myself a philosopher before human. Sry.

Need I say more?

Don't worry, Grace. If it ever came to it, I'm very sure you could out run me.
Director. Of quality gay and lesbian films of course.
I agree. It would be awfully nice to work at the Crash Pad. Or, alternatively, I'd like to be an orgasmic birthing instructor. Or, or, or... I'm sorry this is oh so exciting... Showrunner of a show that undoes the pain that season 6 of the L word caused. Or a really good stripper. Or a professor. Perhaps a professor who strips sometimes?
"Bitch, what you don't know about me is that I can just about fit in the Grand fucking Canyon. Did you know that I always wanted to be a dancer in Vegas?" Silent Bob
Maybe you could teach college courses on stripping. With demonstrations, of course.
"Crash Pad"? That wasn't really the direction I was thinking. Although a certain VP blogger and I kicked around the idea of doing lesbian porn. I was thinking more along the lines of legitimate narrative features.
"Crash Pad" isn't exactly what comes to mind when I think of a "quality" production. But, I know everyone's taste in entertainment is different. I suppose there is so little authentic lesbian porn, that some women would naturally gravitate towards it.
IMO, It's just kinda cheeezzzzzey - kinda like old '70's porn. When I'm not cringing, mostly I giggle.
LB, I'm drinking beers with Minnie, Rusty, Julia and CT and we want to know where to find the quality lesbian porn.
Let me know if you find any!! LMAO
Enjoy a chilled brew on me......
I'm working on it. I like to think of myself as the love child of Ang Lee & Shine Louise Houston sometimes.
The girls want access to your personal stash. Post it to redtube.com and send us a link.
I'll get right on that. LMAO
Is that the communist version of you tube?
Oh, I don't think so.....
you seem quite familiar with it.
Yes I do, don't I ..........
* I feel more comfortable 'incognito' when I discuss this subject *
I'd want to direct legitimate narrative features too with LOTS of fisting. I would like to remake Children of Men with an orgasmic birth in the final act. I can also think of good uses for the innumerable farm animals I'd have at my disposal. I went to Disneyland last weekend and the dancing geese in "New Orleans" gave me some grand ideas.
That combination scares me.....
Hahaha! Go for it!
A writer. Wait. I've done that. Hmmm. A writer who actually makes money. Yeah, that's it.
Still searching for the right brainy quote.
I'll drink to that, Minns! Although, I don't care too much about making a buttload of money. I'd settle for just being able to live comfortably and tell wonderful stories. That's challenge enough as a writer.
Makes a real impression during Lesbian/BiSexual Speed Dating.
Very cool ! I thought lezzie / bi speed dating was a joke. But it's not. Holy shit, I bet it's hilarious. Could you do it Tae?
I think I'm too shy......
he N2T , wondering now do lesbians as on the clip/vid said about first dates, talk about past sexual partners etc and if so do they do that on speed dating to but then just list names and numbers /poses to safe time?
I don't do the whole past lover thing. Though I do mention my daugher, and if they know her intimately, we're done.
Beyond that, I really don't care.
the fact that it ain't your style in fact shows real style
you classy chick
Have you ever been in a speed dating for true? because i have my first one this saturday and i'm a little nervous
Look into their eyes, eyes don't lie.....
At least, that's what I've heard.
(is it just me, or does that winky emoticon look like a pirate?)
see, cuz choice is something for ALL THE HUMANS!
I still want to know who the sadist torturing Theon in the dungeon...
