It wasnt easy telling people I am studying MSc Applied Psychology. Now I shudder to think of the reaction to my latest career choice. And while I could "defend" my choice of psychology by saying its my passion. I am absolutely confused on how I could explain my current choice. OK there are worse choices like becoming a manual scavenger or an the doctor who has to do the autopsy or homemaker. But still...
Aaah you are wondering what could be worse? The reason I am keeping it a suspense, is the fear that once you would read it, you would utter an aargh and stop visiting my blog.
No its not politics. Its sob, sob worse. Can you think of a person you would consider a pest? Hmmm thankfully I am not into MLM or marketing credit cards or personal loans.
Well atleast now I know what I should do when I dont want to socialise with someone. Just mention my career.
OK OK I will cut short the suspense. Its uh hmmm Insurance Advisor. And I will be in Chennai till 19th April.
Now on why I want to become an Insurance Advisor, well, I am convinced it has some connection with being a Leo. If it had been phrased Insurance Agent, I would have NEVER gone near it. But Advisor seems sooooooooo much better.
And now for the clarifications :
Just because I have choose to become an Insurance Advisor DOESN'T MEAN
1.I will blog about it in Wise Donkey. I love it when I google Gayathri Eswar and get hits of various Wise Donkey blogposts. And I am capable of compartmentalising different spheres of my life to an extent. And I realise that if I keep writing about Insurance I am not going to have readers and its boring to blog when one has no one to read it. I prefer my Aarghs and Do U Knows and my relationship posts when it comes to blogging.
2.If anyone ever decides to talk with me for 5 minutes, I will spend the entire 5 minutes talking about Insurance. Now perhaps I should print it on my TShirt or the Dupatta.
3.I have ruled out becoming a Psychologist. Just because I havent given the exams this year, doesnt mean, I dont care about Psychology. I have all the time in the world for everything, hmmm I think.
4.I will use my messagebot or other email ids I have collected till now for my blog to talk about iinsurance. I cant extend the same promise for forwards. Anything to fight forwards and group emails as far as I am concerned. Though I dont want to become a spammer
5.I will talk about insurance in the blog meets (Assuming that I will be ever invited to one)
6.I wont appreciate gestures of goodwill from fellow bloggers (You dont have to take out policies through me, asking me to send an email about it would be enough)
7.I will fast or protest outside any person's home, just because they have declined to take out a policy through after evincing interest initially.
8.I have a contagious disease and its unsafe to talk with me
9.I had planned this career. Like everything else, this too is an accident.
10.My decision hasnt been affected by people asking me what I do now or worse the fear of getting a smirk when I call some VJ or DJ. After all saying you are a blogger or homemaker doesnt have the same effect as saying you are an Insurance Advisor.
11.I cant make a positive difference. Anywhere, anytime, a positive difference however small, has always been my goal. And if I dont achieve the targets, as long as I dont become someone I dont want to, I would be happy.
12.I will be a lousy Insurance Advisor. I might have the donkey in my name, but dont forget the wise too :D
