How does this work?

I am hoping that someone can explain this to me. Since I am currently looking for a career in a new field, I have noticed how difficult such a change can be. In accounting as well as several other fields, one of the primary requirements is previous experience. Education is great, but having it seems to be only the first hurdle. Appearantly, there are quite a few industries in which you can only get a job if you already had that job to start with. Take florists, for example. I have NEVER seen a florist position offered that did not require previous experience as a florist. I fail to see how you get this experience if no one will hire you until you already have it!

It's like all the places that now won't hire you unless you already have a job, which means that you probably aren't really looking for a change of pace (especially in this rocky economy). Seriously, where has the common sense gone to??

A fantastic question!

"In the dream where you show up to school naked, why do you never go swimming?"

My first response is that my school did not have a pool, and diving into the cafeteria spaghetti Au natural just seems a bit unsanitary. But then I really began to think about this question.

Obviously, this kind of dream has something to do with insecurity, and in a place where you can become exposed in front of people that know you. Otherwise, you might just be at the park, or Disney World, or anywhere. Not in front of your classmates. Now, I can't speak for anyone else, but when I had this dream, it was always at lunch. So I used to wonder why I (or no one else, for that matter) would notice I was not properly attired for the first four hours I was there. That is the aspect that would always confuse me. Not a single person would realize that I was missing vital protection from a draft until I went to get my lunch money out of my pockets. Does this mean that if you believe you are wearing clothes, you can sit next to your friends in the buff and they would never know? That's the real question, and one I would love for someone other than me to answer!

Deja Vu

It is time, once again, to delve into the world of randomosity. The question that I have been given is:

"You can punch a hole in an apple using a straw. How do you think that makes your milkshake feel?"

Well, my first thought is relieved. I mean, when was the last time it ever got a break from the straw, unless you count the Frosty's from Wendy's, since they like to serve them with spoons. Then I figured maybe it would be impressed with my manly strength. So I tried it. then I tried it many more times. As it turns out, either I buy really cheap straws, or this assumption requires that you are someone who is given their name by the National Weather Service during hurricane season. Either way, the final score was: Apple - 14, me - 0.

I think my milkshake is laughing at me...

On a side note for those of you particularly confused by the subject of this tirade, this question reminded me of a home networking commercial, where the announcer explains the benefits of having various items being able to talk to each other. The girls response? "My shower has seen me naked. I wonder what it's telling the toaster..."
