Not everybody wants to be stuck inside a stuffy building babysitting a rickety desk in an overcrowded office filled with loud, grouchy people who have little, if anything, in common other than the need to earn a living doing something, whatever that is.
Seems that people in that environment can begin, endure, and retire from just such a workplace without ever figuring out what they really want to be doing in life. They never discover their own unique gifts and talents and never find real joy or fulfillment on the job, even though the paychecks do come around regularly.
Other people, the ones who know what their gifts and talents are and want to work with them instead of merely hanging around to collect a check, often go to trade schools to hone their skills to turn those natural gifts and talents into satisfying careers.
People who enter trade schools are usually pretty creative individuals. People who like to work with their hands to create things. This type of person isn't content using his or her hands to merely shuffle a stack of boring papers from one side of a desk to the other side and then calling it a day.
Instead, the kind of people who attend trade schools would rather leave work at the end of a busy day knowing there's something new in the world as a result of their creative labors.
Trade schools can be culinary schools. Or fashion design. Or carpentry. Or furniture making or landscape design or welding.
At the end of the day, graduates of trade schools won't leave behind a re-shuffled stack of unread paperwork. Instead, they'll leave behind a meal for a homeless shelter, or clothes for victims of disaster, or a home, or a comfy bed to sleep in, or a garden of healthy and delicious vegetables, or a decorative wrought-iron fence that welcomes somebody home.
It's really nice to know that there are all those people willing to spend their time inside those stale buildings behind the flimsy desks commingling with all those unhappy coworkers. But it's even nicer to know that all those graduates from trade schools bring finer things into our lives and make life a little more pleasant to look at, live in, and enjoy.
