It’s strange but I often do not think of myself as a “professional.” (And ew, no–not that kind of professional.) Imagine my surprise when I was asked to participate in career day at my rez’s school. (Reservation for any non-native readers.) I think I know what to say but mostly I just do not want to come off as lame. Dorky I could deal with, that is part of my charm. I’m making my brochure now, it is so awesome I bet the kiddies will sleep with it under their pillows and dream sweet Speech Pathologistic dreams. Ha. Yeah right.
I think back to my career days in high school and I remember thinking, “As if I want to do that….You only make how much money?….BORING!” So you see where some of my worries come from.
Why did I agree to do this again?
