My latest job is a lab tech for a small biological/veternary medicine manufacturer. That got me through college where I found that a degree in history really is just as worthless as everyone says it is.

Gas station pump jockey, pizza delivery driver, video rental customer service, hollywood production assistant, sound engineers' assistant, assistant production manager for an orchestra, operations manager for a nasa education program, and bin filler in a warehouse (couldn't take that last one for too long)


right now I'm a full time flight student, and can't wait to start flying for a living (can you believe they'll pay us to do this!?)
