Job vs. career...you have to go to school a long time and work really hard to get a career going, whereas a job is fairly easy to come by but lacks stability. Work for the post office for a mundane job that pays good bucks? You will certainly have financial security but how will you feel at the beginning and end of the day? You need to find out what your strengths and weaknesses are during this down time and the forge ahead to develop them in a specific direction. It took me a long time to realize that "teaching" was the thing for me and it is still very difficult, time consuming and lots of hard work and extra hours without pay, but you really, really make a substantial difference! You also feel pretty good about yourself at the beginning and end of the day, in addition to having the perks of health benefits and job security. You obviously like dealing with people doing sales work, and it is just a natural jump in another direction to teach! Just a thought young man! Good luck in your quest. Don't see this as a defeat, see it as an opening for forging a future in a positive direction!!!!
