I am really interested in learning about new careers. These are all careers that I would never actually want to do myself, but ones that I am interested in for the sake of being interested. I feel like you can learn a lot about the world simply by talking to other people and listening to the things they are passionate about.
For example, I have recently been talking to a bunch of podiatrists after discovering that I have several problems with my feet. I have made friends with the staff at the best podiatry clinic Cheltenham has, and they are more than happy to accommodate my interests. I do pay them, of course, as I am technically a customer of theirs, but I also do my best to pick their brains during every appointment I go to.
Recently, I was talking to my podiatrist about a number of foot conditions that people can be born with from birth. Many of them can be easily managed, but are also sometimes quite difficult to walk on if you don’t get them seen to as a child.
I heard a story from one client who bought these orthotics arch support insoles. Cheltenham podiatrists were stumped as to why this child was limping around, since his feet seemed to be completely normal from an external standpoint. Several internal scans revealed that his foot bones had grown wrong and that he was struggling to walk because one of the bones was sticking into the other. Gross stuff. I didn’t really want to hear more about podiatry after that. Still, I think it’s important to learn all you can about feet, since we usually use them every day and we should take proper care of them to ensure they can take us where we need to go as efficiently as possible. I wonder what career I’m going to learn about next! There are so many options to choose from.
