I don't scare easy, when on solid ground - but I wouldn't last a day, there...

20 years in the Navy and the last 13 civillan years have been out here .Its all I know other than Music. It pays well and nice scenery plenty of really large fish swimming round the platform all the time .We are a floating spar we have 14 anchor Chains that go down 2600 feet to the sea floor and we just bobble like a cork on the surface.

Wow! Great diversity here...would love to be in an artistic field such as film making or graphic arts. My dream is to teach Yoga but...tough way to pay the bills. I'd rather be able to do that for free and live independently wealthy :D

As it is...my first and best job was a lifeguard at a private pool club. Lot's of waitressing jobs thrown in here and there (the best was at a disco in the 80's when the Dom, lines, and cash flowed freely!)

Long term work as a racehorse groom, then on to trainer and owner. (LOVED working with the horses, fabulous animals! The people - not so much)

Decided to ditch the agriculture career and learn the use a word processor. Got my foot in the door in technology because the manager of the QA dept. of a small start up software development company just HAD to see the person that was submitting the crazy resume above...he fell in love with my attitude and intellegence and hired me on the spot. Had a great big huge corner office and felt like 'the shit!'....then they went under, Ahahahah!!

Now my official title is 'Manager of Software Development' for a well known accounting firm....booooring! But....it pays the bills.

I'm a radiographer at a public hospital. My wife is a midwife, and she says that there is no joy like delivering a baby into the world. Yeah, well she doesn't know the joy of zapping babies with radiation. And everyone else. Zapping all day long. Zapping in the morning, zapping in the evening, zapping at supper time........

My motto is: less chatting, more zapping.

X-rays: they should be called "fun rays".

That's one thing I liked about when I used to work on the rigs, you only have to worry about being late for work once :lol:

The vet asked for a stool sample from our new puppy. Man, did that stink - I couldn't wait for them to finally take it from me. But who's lousy job is it to pick though that shit for analysis, every day?

My husband and I are “retired” but we run an internet-based business and administer a foundation from our home.

Some of my most interesting and rewarding “jobs” have been the volunteer and unpaid positions.

In between the volunteer and unpaid positions, paying jobs that I’ve had (in chronological order): babysitting, corporate intern positions, artist’s model, trust officer/analyst, teacher, research assistant, professor.

^oh MSG! I didn't know you had been a professor!

My jobs in order:

Babysitter, busboy, dishwasher, waitress, Wendy's employee, janitor, shipping/receiving clerk, seamstress, graphic artist/typsetter, leasing agent for a property management company, store clerk, photo manager of said store, apparel department head of said store, store clerk, manager of grocery store, checker of grocery store, teacher intern, writing consultant...

Geez! It sure took me a long time to find my niche, eh? (I'm 27, mind you...but I did hold many of those jobs at once)

Hi Mandy, I was but, you probably know from what you've seen at your state university, it's not what people imagine it to be. From what I know of you and the kind of student you are and how you seem to gravitate toward people, I imagine that you'll become a professor some day too. You probably are too busy to think of it now but one day you'll probably take the path that many of my friends and I did: getting a bit bored and restless with being in a K-12 classroom but still loving to teach and still loving your content area all while missing the intellectual stimulation of being a college student. Feel free to PM me any time if you want any more info. :)

My list of jobs looks sparse compared to yours but only because I didn't list all the different employers I had and tasks that I did. For example, when I was in high school, one of the corporate intern jobs I had required photocopying and hand collating manuals. After making all of the copies, I had to lay them out around a huge table in page order and then walk around the table picking each page up and keeping them in order until I had made a manual. Then I did it again....and again....hundreds and hundreds of pages....there were many, many boring jobs like that but I put them all under one heading.
