Biographer/historian of as many U.S. Presidents as I could. Lincoln and Washington have been done to death so maybe I'd start with the least understood or written-about Prez.

You think that being a biographer/historian would eventually take over your heart?

Well, I didn't fully understand your weakly-written question so I went with what I did.

Sorry.

Naturally I want to know what your career choice would be.

Have you even known someone who was nice and then they turn...and change into someone different?

I was thinking real estate agent...but that's not the only one...

That's easy. I am so self-loathing I could never be close to anyone. This is why I always want to end things just when they seem to be going well. There's no future in it for either of us :(

I can see you as a high-end realtor. One that produces high-quality Youtube marketing videos of multi million dollar estates.

I understand the 60s were about love and peace. Boy...do you have a lot of catching up to do.

People who think they "understand" an era should be sent back in time to see what actually went on.

It was still Eisenhower's America well into the 1960s... and Charles Manson effectively ended the decade of love and peace with the Tate/LaBianca murders.

I've changed my mind. I now want to be a writer of fiction.
I want to be an original... but I'm self-aware enough to know that this is an impossibility. I'm a master of trivia... not an original thinker (and this fact bothers me no end).

Ever see Amadeus?
Salieri knew quality when he heard it. That was his curse.

It's very odd that Amadeus was just the movie I was thinking about when I said that.

Salieri's best pose: look out from his balcony, listening to Mozart, with his hand cupping his head. How they did that movie was genius.

At one time I was interested in movies and the genius of scenes like that. I don't know what happened to me... nowadays I'm more into reruns of The Big Bang Theory and COPS.
As well, I bet you've read more books this week than I have this century.

For me it isn't the career that is changing me...it is the company I work for that is doing it.

My boss said I was to soft and needed to be more of an **** like him...I informed he I could be but that is a side he really doesn't want to see of me.

A company stems from their owner or CEO...if they, he or she are ****...generally the company will not be worth working for in the long run.

It is funny is our CEO and Senior VP the complete opposite. They are for the people and rather funny. It is the managers, supervisors, and team leaders that are ****.

A lot gets hidden from them.

Actually I do a lot of work for our Senior VP he is typically on site unless he makes a trip to corporate. He is blind to a lot of what goes on though.
