Tagged, Part 2

Venting HR Guy tagged me so I guess I will try to come up with another six facts about myself. Don't count on them being too interesting.
  1. In a world of dog and cat people, I am definitely a dog person.
  2. If I didn't work in HR and didn't despise people in general, I would be an interior decorator.
  3. I love hockey but I don't get to see it very much where I live. This is difficult considering I grew up watching one of the original six teams. I am still a huge fan of this team. Any guesses on the city?
  4. I am addicted to TIVO.
  5. If I was 10 years younger, I would go to law school.
  6. I frequently (and usually secretly) disagree with a lot of HR bloggers regarding the advice they give.

We definitely share #31 What did people do before TiVo?

What's the deal with #6? Why disagree secretly? I say be open about it. I bet most HR Bloggers would enjoy a well stated opposing opinion.

I do share my viewpoints..sometimes. Most of the time, I believe the answer given is oversimplified. In my experience, that isn't effective.

"If you were 10 years younger"?

With all due respect, Pink, that's a cop-out. You're twice as smart and three times as business savvy as half the folks getting into law school these days.

What does '10 years' have to do with anything?

Thanks for the compliments. What I meant was that 10 years ago I didn't have any children. It's not fair to them for me to be consumed by working. For me, my main commitment has to be them and law school would not allow that. Additionally, money is a factor. My education has been costly and is an investment. Law school would be a large expense and would also result in a major loss of income for me for at least three years. I don't think that makes financial sense.

Ah, that makes sense. I can totally relate to putting ones children first.

I've always secretly held on to this dream that when my children are all grown up, they'll give me three years living allowance and pay my law school tuition as a sign of their gratitude. :-)
