I am still going to school, or college.. Whatever.. tounge.gif

I study for animal caretaker but I don't learn jack sh*t at my school. It was a big mistake.. I am not sure what to do next and what my job should be.

What job do you have, and how did you get it? Do you like it, and does it pay well?


I'm kind of no good for every kind of job.. When I was younger I thought I would go for being an actor.. But that is just impossible, lol. And recently I came up with these job options that I might like which are Photographer, Journalist, Chef or Police officer.

Most of these are tough. It seems like all fun and good paying jobs are impossible to get. I'm probably only good for cleaning. sad.gif

Does it pay well? I did a ICT education but it was so boring most of the times and complicated..

I don't know. Maybe I should do that again sometime and go for it fully, no matter how sh*t it sometimes can be. But I want it to pay well too. tounge.gif

And you can do things more from home, right?

I see.. Is it hard? As in, do you sometimes rage because something won't work the way it has to? I had that a lot. My sites would never appear the way I wanted it to.

All those codes and sh*t drove me insane.

A sexton is a church, congregation, or synagogue officer charged with the maintenance of its buildings and/or the surrounding graveyard. In smaller places of worship, this office is often combined with that of verger. In larger buildings, such as cathedrals, a team of sextons may be employed.

Getting promoted to night shift supervisor first week of September, I might miss GTA V midnight release but atleast I get a $3/hr raise.

I work in a trucking depot, mostly dealing with groceries. I hope to be one of their city drivers, 20/hr for 4, 10 hour days and if you want to work a fifth day you get close to 40/hr.

I'm also an entrepreneur sly.gif

Currently between jobs but searching for work as a legal secretary/paralegal. Failing that I think I'll just do internship work for a year or work in a bar. All in a bid to fund my vices degree, starting 2014.

I also moonlight as a gambler, although that's really just a fancy way of saying that I often lose money on skybet -- I am up £700 this week though, and long may that continue.

I cut lawns when I'm not at school. Good job though, can't beat $10 an hour for basic labor when the minimum wage is like $7.25 or something

Fluffer, it's a hard job, which has it's ups and downs, the work can be easy going as long as you spread the load, but sometimes it can have stiff competition so you just have to swallow your pride and shake it all off and become the cream of the crop.

Currently hauling frozen for a company driving their Kenworth T2000 & 53' trailer. Pays the bills to go to university. Looking to do database administration or something similar once I graduate (computer science degree). If that's a no-go, I might try for the provincial or even federal police force here in Canada.

Used to be the liquor department manager at the local supermarket, then got put as a grocery supervisor, then I moved into the storeroom where I was the storeman for a year - unloading/loading trucks, sorting out deliveries etc. That was all back in New Zealand, me and a few mates have moved over to Australia for abit where now I am a fulltime Duty Manager at one of the supermarkets here, making $24 an hour. Which is pretty damn good for what I do.

Did pipe-fitting for awhile and the larger pipe jobs locally went down so I went back into business for myself building custom motorcycles and repair. If it weren't for having a kid, I'd stay with the pipe-fitting, I just can't travel for months at a time and leave the little dude. Welding has always been my passion and any type of metal fabrication. So doing what I do now is fun at times but sucks major ass when it comes to the mechanical aspects.. enough to make me pull the 3 hairs I have left on my head out.

I hired the son of a friend and he's actually a damn good helper, he stays two steps ahead of me most of the time, handing me tools I need before I even ask, so that's a big plus. More orders and work are piling up but with the rainy weather the last few weeks and months.. really puts a dent in it though, not too many people riding right now.

I find people looking for buildings. This is my job now. I drive out to the desert and sit in an office at a veneered desk and talk into a phone. In front of me is a giant monitor filled with a grid of warehouses located in a desert county, along with names and phone numbers. I call the place, try to find out if the person is interested in moving. If they are, I get money.

Maybe a lot of money. A piece of the deal. Warehouses are typically leased for periods of ten years so a lot of money changes hands if one of these things come through. But before that happens I have to punch in a lot of phone numbers off this white grid. I am in an ill fitting suit; behind me men walk around and chatter in other ill fitting suits. Their shoes are newer than mine but we pretty much look the same. Talk into the phone and try to make money come out. Outside my window are mountains. An apartment complex. Trees tossing in the desert wind, occasionally a bird. No one gets naked in the apartment windows, ever. Still, I keep a vigilant watch.

They warned me that people might be hostile on the phone but they never are. I know how to talk to people. I come off as an ordinary human being, not some jerkoff trying to sell them something. Fundamentally I donít give a sh*t whether they give me their confidential lease information. My job is not a representation of my humanity, and if I lost it tomorrow I would shrug. They can sense this, that their reaction to me brings me no joy or pain whatsoever. It makes them want to give me their confidential lease information.

Basically I talk into a phone and look at a computer filled with numbers and try to make money come out. Itís nothing; there is nothing to it. Trying to get a ball bearing company to move three blocks and save two cents a square foot. My boss is a nice man. He discusses golf. There is free bottled water and power bars. Parking is never an issue.

Itís nothing, and thatís just the way I motherf*cking like it.
