I am hands-down (or maybe hands-moving) a physical worker. The last thing I desire is a job where I have to sit down all the time. Back when I worked I was a waitress because it was constant movement. My metabolism was never better!! Right now I'm taking the occasional job to clean houses and I LOVE IT.
Cleaning other houses is better than cleaning my own because I never have to see it get messed up. That's the worst part about cleaning my own is it's slow (sometimes rapid) decline into a messy pit. So, now I get to tidy up a different house, get a workout, and get paid to do it!!
The other plus is that it doesn't intrude too much on my daily life. My hubby has shown me the beauty of the non-traditional job. Give me the job of lumberjack or pig farmer or park ranger or road construction crew member!
I think that's another reason why being a barista would appeal to me. I'd be on my feet the whole time and I'd get free caffeine! BTW, if any of you have been reading since my giving up of caffeine...I fell FAR off the wagon. Once the snow started flying caffeinated drinks simply showed up in front of me. No way was I going to waste them!
Are you a physical laborer or a sitting worker?
