    I'm an accounting clerk and bookkeeper by trade. I've been on disability for a year now. It's strange not to work as I have worked all my adult life. I don't know what the future will be but I don't have to worry about it because I have a close relationship with God. About the only thing productive I've been able to do is knit or crochet. The Pastor at the church I attend gave us permission to gather to knit and crochet together. Perhaps this is the direction God wants me to go in. It gives me a purpose.

    I don't have a job path or a career yet, but I'm hoping to get a degree in social and behavioral science. I don't want to be a social worker or work with anybody right now (that might change, who knows).. but I hope to find some other type of job connected with it. Some sort of research about people and why they are the way they are. Whatever job I have, I want to be in the background or work alone. Like I said though, I'm only 20 and a degree is far away so my views might change.

    Not currently doing much work at the moment. I usually work part time at a min. wage job that I may or may not hate... and work part time as a screen/voice actress.

    Eventually I may be able to go back to school to finish my cert. for audio engineering and film production.

    I work as a deputy manager in a shop.

    I did enjoy it except now my manager does no work so I do it all and get no credit for it.

    I also hate having to talk to customers most of the time.

    I would kill for a mon-fri office job

    My last on-the-books job was as a stock person/foodserver in a health food store. I worked about ten years in contracting/housepainting after that but was too slow because my OCD made me constantly and compulsively organize/clean/adjust the tools I was working with.

    As a boy I idolized Charles Schultz (Peanuts comic strip creator) and wanted to be a commercial artist until reality set in in college and I had to admit to myself I did not have my mother's artistic talent.

    I am mechanically inclined so maybe one day I'll be pushing the most bitchin' shopping cart on the street.

    I'm an Electrician. Recently started my apprenticeship. Still waiting for work, but it will start soon :)

    Before this I worked at a hospital as part of their helpdesk, but I worked offsite in a cramped cubicle transferring trouble tickets to the real technicians that fixed things. Little stress, but highly boring.

    Currently I'm a network technician for an MMO company, and I'll be getting a career change in 2 months when I graduate from massage school to become an LMT.

    Getting tired of the stress with IT jobs and wanting to create my own hours and schedule and help people live better in the process. Hope it all works out for me and doesn't become a bust, or I'll be spending more time on here again.
