    I drank enough and talked about beer in my life.....I figured I might as well get paid for it.

    Sadly found a "job" worked hard and now I'm earning good scratch but in a field I'd never even considered and don't claim to enjoy

    Wanted my own business. Went to law school. Did like 8 jobs in 10 years, and finally caved and opened my own office. 10 years later, I don't think I could work for anyone else again. Lot of dickheads in the law too.

    Love of cooking kept me in the biz for 35 years.
    I miss it too. Being an Executive Chef is not all it's cracked up to be. Mainly menu design, inventory control, cost control, paperwork, yadda yadda. Oh, and babysitting 20 adults who've made the unfortunate mistake of thinking that they can live on $14 an hour. And they're pissed!
    Fortunately I work in a corporate setting, so the hours rock. M-F 6-3, no nights or weekends ever!

    High school job became college job which fit with my degree to get into something related. Had some fun, good success, but now wish I followed a passion. I wish I could go back to school and start over, but I have to pay the bills.
    Might as well have a drink...

    Being a SXM HSS listener I'm a glutton for punishment, and like to take my frustration out on others. So fuck you.

    The most fun subjects in school for me for some reason pointed at an excellent career.

    When I got out of prison I needed to make a decision. I got lucky.
    Now I get to live in NYC.
    Work as much as I want.
    I get to travel the world.
    Be on TV.
    Make old fags think that their "hair" looks like a rock stars should.

    i was a contract specialist in the air force. when i got out, i figured i'd do something else because it was not fun, not funny.

    10 years later i'm selling pot and coke and playing poker with a new guy. it turns out that his wife was a civilian contract person for the national guard and they needed to hire someone with federal experience. i was wondering what to do with the rest of my life and a couple months later i was hired. oddly enough, this time i liked it.
    i liked selling pot more though. :nocheer:
