I grew up during the Decade of Harry. I was on vacation in Denver when the last book was released- I went to the closest Walmart and sat in line until Midnight when it was released.
I have a necklace of an owl carrying a bit of mail in its talons, undoubtedly Hedwig. Perhaps it's Pigwidgeon carrying Ron's Howler.
I went to Potted Potter to see the entire series acted out in 90 minutes.
It's my greatest desire to go to Harry Potter World.
I have a crush on Cedric Diggory. duh.
I'm 27 years old. And I'm a Muggle.
I'm a Muggle in the wizarding sense, in that I have no wizarding powers and I went to a normal high school sans robes, wands, and spying kitties. I'm also a Muggle in the Muggle sense, in that I have no skills to speak of.
I'm at an impasse in my life. It's time to move on from my current job. The issue I'm encountering is that, though I desire a new career, I have no skills to aid in this transition. I can hardly be defined as qualified to do the job I have now. I've been in this field since I graduated college and now I fear I'm stuck.
I don't take kindly to feeling stuck.
What would I like to do instead? I DONT KNOW. I haven't the slightest clue what it is that I'm supposed to do instead. I love to cook, but I can't cook well enough to be a chef. I love to paint, but my skills are at a hobbyist level and not worth any amount of money. I love to travel, but travel costs money and doesn't supply it. And so I feel stuck.
What jobs are there for people like me? At what job can a Muggle thrive?
