okay my mom at least agrees I can't live with them because there would be no jobs except minimum wage and that wouldn't be any different than now. but she insists I have a plan. I mean, I don't know what to tell her other than:

I DON'T KNOW

I was in my late 20's before I settled on a career and (to my parents dismay) had no official plan before that. The half-as*ed ideas and dreams I had did not even come close to what I ended up doing so... It's not always wise. Things change. Parents know this, but seem to forget it.



Right now I want to be Galadriel when I grow up.

I think that might be interesting but I can't find out how anyone would get a job doing that. I mean I would imagine it would require some knowledge in science, but these days you don't really need previous knowledge of anything to do anything. (which is what I've been saying since I was five...they just gonna train ya anyway!)

I guess it would depend on exactly what you want to do. If you want to go out in the field and study crime scenes and also study in the lab that would fall under forensic anthropology. 2 schools close to home offer that. Now if you want to do more specialized things, I am not so sure. Here the SBI sends a mobile crime scene lab or they send things to them. You could find out more about that, though.

** And I do know other departments have their own morgues and I assume smaller labs. It's worth checking into.

Mmm I just got asked to freelance copywrite for a website. How do I set rates?? I've never freelanced before.

The project consists of about 5 pages and each page will have a few paragraphs of content each.

Do I charge per page?

They would then submit hours and we would discuss if they were going over the estimate and why and sometimes extend the budget accordingly. Some freelancers just liked to do a contract based on a fixed fee with parameters around what is in and out of scope for the project, estimates for how many rounds of feedback/revisions, etc.

Typical digital copywriter rates where I live are $50-$125 an hour depending on their experience and the subject matter. For example, medical websites or technical websites that demand a more specialized skillset would rate higher. I do live in an area that tends to have a higher cost of living so depending on where you live you might want to scale back hourlys accordingly.

I haven't got the slightest idea how to change people, but I still keep a long list of prospective candidates just in case I should ever figure it out.

as you might have guessed from something i posted earlier this week, the world figure skating championships are taking place in the arena across the street from my office. here are some "skating stories"...

there are only 6 medium-sized hotels in downtown London, with another one about half-way to the major highway that goes between Toronto and Detroit and maybe another half dozen near that highway. outside my office building are shuttle stops going to Stratford, about an hour away, where a large Shakespearean festival is held ever summer, Ingersoll, about 30 minutes east, and Woodstock about 45 minutes east.

when i left the office tonight, i walked down the middle of the closed streets on my way to the liquor store to get some red wine for the next few days.

Holy Canadiana Batman!

even though our liquor control board (LCBO) is currently running a California wines promotion, you'd never know it from the store near my office. all the displays are Canadian wines from the Lake Erie north shore and Niagara, Canadian whiskies (including a distillery on-site ready to engrave bottles for you personally), cases and cases of ice wine (which the Japanese visitors snap up by the case at an average cost of (*gulp*) $750 Cdn each, and maple syrup liqueur!

on the south side of the arena, in a large plaza, are gigantic tv screens displaying the skating going on inside.

i walked up to the plaza to watch some of the men's short program which started just before i left the office.

as i stood there, i felt a gentle tap on my shoulder and turned around expecting to see someone i knew.

instead, i found myself face to face with 3 young women wearing jackets with Japanese flags on them. they all bowed and, feeling awkward, i gave a slight bow, too. then one of them said in English that they all thought my hair was so beautiful in the sunlight.



i replied with the only words i know in Japanese: Domo Arigatou Gozaimasu. and i bowed to them, to many giggles. they said goodbye and went back to the building while i stood there grinning like an idiot.

isn't that the sweetest thing?

so, i keep going to the store a few minutes later and while i'm stopped at the lights, this couple from Italy ask me if i know anything about the two Italian restaurants across the street. fortunately, i've been to one and it's REALLY good! it's also cheaper than the one right next door. even better is that i remembered how to say that in Italian "meno caro" because they gave me a confused look when i said less expensive in English. i hope they liked Abruzzi because - OMG - the food is amazing there!

anyway... the Canadians are in 2nd place after the pair short program and our Patrick Chan is in 1st after the men's short program - which had so many skaters in the field - it's taken FIVE hours to complete!

I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.
