    Default Second Generation

    So, my oldest son will be applying tomorrow for a job as a screen printer. It's a job he has a 99% chance of getting as the owner is one of my best friends.

    I told him he could look at it two ways. He could look at it as just a "job" or as a potential career. He seems interested in possibly making a career of it. We'll see how he feels after 6 months of pulling a squeegee all day.

    I haven't printed anything in many moons. I got my start in the art world printing though. But, it's just nice to have him interested in a craft. And it helps it's something i know about and have so many resources that I can direct him towards.

    I mean I got a direct line to The Andy's for crying out loud.

    My oldest son will be celebrating 2 years of life tomorrow. He can't color in a space yet but he does draw a colored line in every area that counts.

    If anything your son won't be lazy sitting behind a computer all day. I say it's a good start whether he sticks with it or not. Congrats on spreading your influence.

    There is a 1% chance he and the owner will decide he's not right for the job. But, I doubt that will happen. Even if he shit his pants... he'd get the job.


    The downside and the reason I'm at all concerned about the whole thing is that he doesn't have a car or drive and the shop is a 20 mile bus ride back and forth. He isn't very fond of riding the bus. My guess is he'll find a girl to drive him. Until he saves enough to get a car of course.

    My wife was an architect. We will strongly advise our girls to pick another path if they want to study design. The theory is pretty cool, the practice is just plain terrible. Unless you like pushing paper all day.

    Engineers get paid far better than architects.
