The Different Careers

Nowadays, there are many different careers that one can choose. For example, if you like sharing your knowledge with others, you can become a(n) (1_______). This job is not easy, but at least you will get summer vacation like all the students do. If you do not like that one, you can become a(n) (2__________). This career is excellent for those who have a good sense of authority, since you will have to make sure people abide by the law. If someone breaks the law, you can arrest him/her. But if what you want is to help people, why not become a(n) (3_________)? That way, when people get sick, you can help them feel better. If you do not like this profession, you can become a(n) (4_______). That career requires knowing medicine, but you would only work on people’s dental health. If you like medicine, but you do not want to cure people, you can also help animals, you can become a(n)а (5_________). Another good job if you want to help people is that of a(n) (6_________). But this is a dangerous job, since you would have to be very close to fire all the time, trying to put them out. If you want to work in something safer, there are many other options. Would you like to go to the moon? Maybe you can work as a(n) (7________). Or maybe you can work as a(n) (8_____), delivering mail. If that still does not suit you, you can also consider working as a(n) (9_______). It may be boring to serve food to people, but at least you will be doing it on a plane. That way, you would be able to travel more. The last option I can tell you about is an interesting job in which you must fix pipes. If you do not mind doing that, you can become a(n) (10________). I hope you have found a career that you like. If not, keep looking. You will find one that is just perfect for you!

Appendix 2

The Logical Song (Supertramp)

When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful,

A miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical.

And all the birds in the trees, well they'd be singing so happily,

Joyfully, playfully watching me.

But then they send me away to teach me how to be sensible,

Logical, responsible, practical.

And they showed me a world where I could be so dependable,

Clinical, intellectual, cynical.

There are times when all the world's asleep,

the questions run too deep

for such a simple man.

Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned

I know it sounds absurd

But please tell me who I am.

Now watch what you say or they'll be calling you a radical,

liberal, fanatical, criminal.

Won't you sign up your name, we'd like to feel you're acceptable,

Respectable, presentable, a vegetable!

At night, when all the world's asleep,

The questions run so deep

For such a simple man.

Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned

I know it sounds absurd

But please tell me who I am.
