I've signed up to be a door-to-door Census taker and have very mixed feelings. I really need $$ and am sort of desperate, but have turned my nose up at lots of other jobs. So why the Census? Even though the idea of knocking at doors and dealing with all sorts of people just about makes me nauseous, I really do believe in the importance of the Census. Once every 10 years - a count that is the basis of political and economic planning and distribution of funds. Pretty cool! So here I go...... I'm trying to see this as a research project, an opportunity to see into people's lives that I would not normally see. I'm also breaking out in hives and drinking too much. Thank god this is a short term position.
