What the hell am I going to do with my life..??

Write! I don't just mean your journal, which you do need to write in more, but just write. You're too talented a writer to run around chasing Melbourne's criminal element. Now that we have that figured out, can you tell me what to do with my life?

Go to school.. me one year down on my Digital and Photographic Imaging Bsc and 2 years to go. The first year went quickly and I'm currently working much harder back in IT to earn some dosh through the summer. Havent got a clue what I'm gonna do after I've finished it though!

Oh, I agree with John. You must write. But then, that might take all the fun out of it if you did it for a job. And maybe you'd NEVER get around to your journal. And then I would be sorry I mentioned it.

How about being someone else's personal trainer?? You have the "training" for it...

Maybe mine, God knows I need one. But I am warning you, if you yell at me, I will cry!

You probably hoped you'd get some enlightnening feedback here, huh???

Oh well, Lyra

Why don't you try designing your own brand of sports/leisure wear. You could decide exactly what constitutes a medium size garment and not one which would only fit an anorexic wasp. Just a thought!

well obviously you're going to give up meat, and possibly you're going to give up watching the practice. and with the time saved by not watching the tv you'll be able to peel all those veggies you'll need to eat to feel satisfied. if you give up meat, will you substitute timtams? timtams with mashed potato and gravy. timtams with salad. the culinary delights awaiting you are legion.

For God's sake DO NOT do nursing - unless of course you want your body clock screwed while you spend your working day wiping someone's shitty bum and dripping drool. Then of course there is the complete social isolation when you work the dreaded graveyard shifts. If I were you I would continue with your writing as long you promise to continue to keep us updated on the wild and wacky world of Immy.

I think legal secretary or paralegal are both good jobs, but the main drawback is that everything you've heard about lawyers being complete bastards is 100% true. It's the main drawback to any law-related job (including, in fact, being a lawyer) -- you have to work with lawyers.

Not only are they money grubbing and mean, they're also boring as all get out. But it does help to have interesting paralegals around the office, so I'm sure you'd be in great demand.
