    Default What is your job/career/major/goals/hobbies?

    What work are you currently being paid for and what work would you like to be paid to do? What are doing that doesn't pay, literally?

    Mine are:

    Job-Caregiver
    Major-Marketing-associates degree
    Hobbies-blogging, birding, just in general enjoying different sensory experiences and just being in nature, trying to learn more about nature, to get more active in the visual arts

    Thanks to anyone who replies.

    Thank you for the reply. All of those sound wonderful. What services do you offer as a freelancer? Besides trees, what other aspects of nature do you enjoy? What are you writing and creating? Thank you again for the reply.

    Nature, I like quite a bit beyond the trees. As far as services, it all really depends on the work.

    What about you? Marketing sounds cool, and and its always nice to meet another nature lover ^_^

    Thanks for the reply. A two-year-old is a full-time hobby, but they can be a lot of fun. How did you get into working with technology? Thank you again for the reply.

    I've always been into it, really. Growing up, I was good with our home computer. I was born in 1984, so having one before I was 5 was not so common as it is now. From a young age I knew I wanted to "work with computers", so right before I started my freshman year, I emailed one of the IT support teams on campus and I got a student worker/part time job there. I didn't actually know that much, but I enjoyed troubleshooting and they taught me other stuff I needed to know. I got my math/stats degree b/c it was the only stuff I was kind of good at and I wanted to finally graduate. Then I got a job being a java developer at a big retail company - they trained internally, so I learned all programming skills there. I didn't like that job, tbh, but I did it for 2.5 years. Then I was 1 of 2 desktop support people for a small pre-k - 12 school. And now I do support and implementation for a software company. It's an enterprise level application, so it does quite a lot of things for recreation centers, but it's all 1 actual application.

    I don't think that I'm particularly gifted in this area, but I like tech things and diving into new issues, scenarios, etc. Example - we needed to do some load testing for a client, so we found an app online and I rolled with it, recorded some scripts, ran tests, changed scripts, ran more tests and hopefully helped make the app better by reporting results back to our developers. That's not my thing in the long run, but we needed someone asap, so I dove in and got my feet wet, and got some of the job done. I like new things and tech is always evolving. I also REALLY like problem solving. I used to be in extracurricular art class in middle school and my teacher was one of my favorite people. She would say "everything has a solution" and I firmly believe that in technology, art or anything else you can think of. It really drives me to improve things, too. You don't like it? Change it. It's not fast enough? Change it. It's ugly? Change it.

    I've had a particularly hard time with my marriage the past couple of years and I keep looking for solutions that do not involve divorce, but I've tried so many things that I've run out of other solutions. So....I'll likely be knocking on that door soon. Everything has a solution. Everything.

    Yes, marketing is very interesting. I am having a lot of fun in school. Yes, nature lovers unite! I also have had fantasies about working in Forestry. I love all aspects of it, but I love the aesthetics the most. As far as what I am creating, I write personal essays and I am trying to get more into visual arts, learning more about I guess you could say design technology (photoshop/gimp). So what is your favorite tree?

    Wow, sounds like you really love working with technology. I am glad you have found work that gives you so much enjoyment. They say we usually enjoy doing the things we are good at and you didn't mention anything about being fired, so I am assuming you are pretty good with technology. The problem solving sounds exciting, so what would your dream tech job be? I am sorry to hear about your marriage. People problems are the hardest problems to solve. I love that saying, everything has a solution. Good luck.
