I've done stints in customer and food service, retail, commissioned sales, administrative and clerical, management, security, a brief foray into construction, far more landscaping than I ever intended to... I've worked in a horse stable, rode a tank for a while with the Army in Germany, toured the Eastern U.S. with a world-ranked drum and bugle corps, and was a Trumpeteer at Medieval Times for a couple of years. I've interned at the state capitol and worked in warehouses, made pizza, coffee, burgers, and sandwiches, and sold candy and film at Epcot center (back before the days of ubiquitous smartphone cameras). I used to detail cars, rent out trucks, and lead a top-10 guild in World of Warcraft (thoroughly retired).
I've spent more years in school than anyone without a PhD should ever be proud of. I majored in Music, then Political Science, and completed a B.S. in Interdisciplinary Social Science. I plan to go back again, and utilize practically none of those years of study in a mostly unrelated field... One that recognized scientific geniuses have publicly called an extinction-level threat to humanity, other experts believe is completely impossible, and the ignorant usually can't even comprehend.
If you're still here, chances are we'd at least have an interesting conversation or two, so there's that.
