with the job format, they only give you one catagory to choose
from. Yes I have worked as an artist and was highly successful as I
fell into a job producing art for a multi national corporation.
friends would introduce me as an artist and my response was "well I
play an artist on tv.... "
I actually have a double major in Bio and Geo with science and
nature being my first true loves. But I come from a highly
intelligent and creative family full of talent, so the art was
always something I did in private.
I remember the first year I made a tonne of money as an artist and
getting very upset that he was putting "artist" on my tax forms....
"I'm not an artist! I'm a science major!"
He looked at me and then at my papers.... "well, these papers and
the 80 grand you made with art say something else...."
I also have various diplomas and certifications. some notable ones
are I'm a massage practitioner, trained as a Wilderness Emergency
Med Tech, have been a first aid instructor for 20+ years, Taught
rock climbing for 8 years, and have the first 2 years of my cga

something new every day, I am there bright eyed and bushy tailed.
(rereading this, that is a very odd expression but quite common and
like it better than with bells on... keep seeing a court jester in
my head with that one. I would rather be a squirrel going after
that proverbial nut. ;)
presently I am starting a new roll at work which will give me a
raise and more responsibility but give me time to do other projects
such as flip houses and attempt to get an e publishing company off
