I'm really interested in History so want to do something with that. I'm not sure what though. I was thinking Curator, Archivist, or Historian maybe.

10 PM? F*ck that for a laugh!

Actually on a Monday that would be alright. Better than a 9 AM anyway.

Or did you mean to write 10 AM? Classes at 10 PM sounds rather strange now I come to think of it.

I COULD become a millionaire. An entrepeneur, a manager, something like that. I thought about it, and I realised that although it may be good money... it's not exciting. It isn't something that'd make me wanna jump out of bed every morning to go to my job.

Secondary school teacher would not be a bad choice. Dealing with kids who have brains. And when you're dealing with those who don't, they'll be gone in under an hour! Hahaha! Essentially, those two points are what makes it so appealing above primary school teaching. Also, secondary schools allows for interesting extra cirricular activities. Primary schools don't.

I clicked other, even though what I want to do links in with being an actor. Since it was lumped with DJ (????? where's the connection?????), I figured I'd not click it.
I want to, and WILL eventually work in the BBC. I will write stuff, hopefully with a friend I have yet to meet. I will then personally go through the whole process of turning into something tv-ise-able. That includes doing support stuff, acting, putting it together & editing, and pretty much everything. Which is where my chosen course at the RSAMD comes in. It does everything that supports the actors in a play, except music. Thus allowing me to understand when I'm writing, and do when it's happening all this support stuff.

Exciting. Makes me wanna jump out my bed in the morning to go to work!

So you're implying that primary school kids don't have brains? I think that's quite a shallow comment to make considering you were once at primary school yourself. And the 'gone in under an hour' thing can have it's drawbacks. You won't be able to build up as good a relationship with the children as you would working in a primary school.

Yes i am a student primary school teacher so don't diss the profession or i'll bite back. wink.gif

I've given both alot of thought. It isn't so much the fact that the secondary school kids will be gone in an hour each day, but that the primary kids will be around for a year, all day, every day. Also, it is alot more demanding doing primary school teaching. Done properly, there is a vast amount of stuff that a single teacher in a secondary school doesn't need to worry about. You have to teach kids everything, and you gotta manage them, and pretty much everything. It is good, but the appeals to secondary school is greater to me. Instead of just teaching kids, I can have more adult fun with them and more profound discussions with them. The stage they are in their lives appeals to me more, since they're learning to do things for themselves (e.g. taking subjects, and eventually choosing jobs).

Essentially, it isn't so much the lacking of the brains that my point was... just the fact that I can connect better with more mature brains. Instead of mostly dictating and teaching the kids, there is also more ample opportunity to let them tell you stuff... I hope you get what I mean.

I have more respect for a good primary school teacher, since what they do is more challenging.
