Last week at school CJ took a survey to see what types of careers he would be best suited for.

He was quite excited to find that his career recommendations included things such as;

Computer hardware designer
CJ is our resident computer expert. He can figure out anything with my computer. Except how to get my Photoshop back. But then again, we've had that version of Photoshop longer than we've had CJ.

Artificial intelligence specialist
When CJ was younger, he had plans of building a robot that would clean his room for him. And instead of cleaning his room, he wanted to sit in his messy room and think about his magical room cleaning robot, and when we told him to get up and clean his room, he would say that we were just keeping him from inventing his robot that would clean his room for him.
I think he was just trying to get out of cleaning his room.

He has always loved mixing baking soda and vinegar together.
Diet coke and Mentos interest him too.

Roller coaster designer
What kid wouldn't want to do this? Someday I should post the picture of CJ riding the little roller coaster at Legoland. The look of sheer terror on his face is really quite sad.............and a little amusing.

Acoustical engineer
See the video I posted yesterday. CJ did all of the vocals and beat boxing himself.
No, I don't get the video either. What can I say, he's 13.

Mechanical engineer
Electrical engineer
When he was younger, he liked to take apart small appliances and use the parts to make different "inventions" Fortunately his grandpa kept him supplied with old cassette tape players and radios for his projects.

Computer animator
We have some computer animation software on my computer and he is teaching himself animation.

This one has me a bit baffled. However, if he could design a perfume that would counteract the aroma of flatulence, I would be incredibly grateful.
One of our kids (who will not be named) is extremely gassy.

While I think that CJ would be highly qualified for any of these career paths, today he took a quiz that makes me think of a different profession that he would be highly qualified for.

"What profession is that?" you might ask.

Kindergarten teacher


You might also be thinking that it's a bit of a stretch to go from Computer hardware designer or Biochemist to a kindergarten teacher, however if you look at the results of the quiz, you will understand why.

I'm SO proud!!

I think.

Seriously, I only scored 20. Aaron scored 25 and he's only eight.

Go ahead and take the quiz and leave your score in the comments.

You are too funny! I took this quiz many moons ago, and I can't remember how many I could take.

And just keep reminding him that he'd better stay in line, or else he will get to visit me on a non-Halloween related visit.

Um, I don't think I'm violent enough. I could only take on 15. But as a teacher I think I could handle maybe 30. Killing them with kindness, that's my method.

I'm surprised, I used to be a pre-k teacher! LOL

Annette Lyon said...

I have no desire to take on kindergarteners. My own is PLENTY.

Jillene said...

My score was 18 and I am mean--go figure!!

Laura said...

I can take 23, which is just about right for my son's class. And, with the exception of the teacher, he could be making some money, which could bode well for you when he gets to put you in a home!

21. I am a little afraid of myself that that is my answer :)

MommyJ said...

Only 18 for me... perhaps I need more practical experience. I totally think CJ should be a perfumer. That's hilarious...

Maraiya said...

I could only take 25. Seriously. What's up with that? I think the greatest deficit for me is not being willing to pile drive them into the ground. Although maybe I should rethink that with 25 angry 5yos swarming me.

thing: look - I got a real word in the verification thing.

I volunteered in the kindergarten class all last year. I can handle exactly one. my own!

Only 18. Hmmm....I thought it would be more than that.
