I've worked in a bunch of places over the years. In high school I worked at an amusement park in the food service department. Then I had the stereotypical job at McDonald's in college. Then I worked for several years in the local hospital's dietary department, doing everything from food delivery to making out special diet menus.

I had a job waiting for me once I got out of college in Gettysburg. Essentially it was an open-air living history museum type of deal. Think Colonial Williamsburg. But..the funding fell through, and I was left high and dry. Since at the time the waiting list to just *apply* to be a battlefield guide was five years, it was time to find something else if I liked having a roof over my head.

After a wee disagreement with the hospital, I worked in a Japanese restaurant owned by Koreans who served basically Chinese food. It was if nothing else an education. And an indication that I needed to get the heck out of food service.

So I got a job working at a nursery. I love plants, always have...I had a pretty good time there. But then I found out that I was pregnant, and so at the end of the season I had a new full time job: mommyhood.

In the interim I've worked for a local railroad museum doing archival work and artifact cataloguing, was part of a tourist steam railroad, and became the director for a living history group, which I still hold. I'm also on the board for a colonial era fife and drum corps. If that weren't enough, I'm also a professional reasearcher/writer specializing in the Civl War era in general and Pennsylvania in specific. In my off hours (whenever that is) I own and operate a small jewelry business mostly geared towards reenactors and Victorian enthusiasts.

I sleep somewhere in there, I swear.

I track people down on the 'Net. I work for Duke University, and spend my days tracking down the addresses for lost alumni, parents, house staff and friends, ostensibly so that Duke can stay in touch with them. I am responsible for keeping Duke's lost alumni rate the lowest in the country. I am also in school, and will finally get my AA degree in December (after 5 years of part-time school)!! Woo-hoo!!!! There are so many things I want to do, but I love doing research of any kind. So, I don't really know what I want to do next. If I could do what I dreamed, I would be an astronomer. I don't think that will happen. So, I guess I am sort of rudderless, right now - waiting to figure out what I am going to do next. Scary and exciting. As long as it can support my daughter and I.

Susie, I wear a lighter shade of blue. Years ago when I took Astronomy 101, our labs were in the Morehead Planetarium. Have you been there? They have wonderful programs for the public. Also, what is your degree in?

Hey Scotsman,

I was raised in Chapel Hill, so I am Tar Heel born, Tar Heel Bred.....
Duke pays the bills : )

I have been to Morehead Planetarium, but not in awhile. I love the Star of Bethlehem program at Christmas.

My degree will be a general, 2-year degree - basically for those who want to transfer to a 4-year college later on. I don't even want to think of that right now!! ohmy.gif (why, oh why did I choose Statistics and Zoology for my last semester?!)

I work as a helpdesk analyst for the United States Postal Service...that's how I got to know that funny guy Aaediwen that frequents these hallowed chambers! He actually got me interested in this site from the get-go...I haven't had internet for a while and I really missed the music. So I get to talk with Postal workers, help fix computers, and pretty much live life to its fullest!
(oh yeah, "gettin away", my wife's family is from Otisville, MI. Her father originally hails from Clio as well! It's a small world after all!


Haldur, I guess I missed this before I left town......I get through Otisville occasionally and if your wife's family was ever in the Clio Post Office in the last ohhhhh 23 years, I've probably met them. If you ever find yourself up this way stop by and say "Hi".

i am a lumberjack, or in better terms a plant healthcare technician, yes I had to go to college for that...LOL, but right now I am back in college striving to be a high school bio teacher. I also am a volunteer educator. I am a blacksmith by hobby, and I work in a shop where they bring school children in and explain what life was like in the 1800's. I teach kids what a blacksmith is, and I let them try their hand at it.

My wife is in school with me to be an art teacher.

That sounds interesting, actually. When I was younger, I wanted a career in forestry. I almost went to Paul Smith's College in New York. I ended up in Printing.

Currently I'm finally getting into my passion of cooking as a chef. Taking the formal approach through schooling and also just getting my foot in the door at a local restaurant as a prep cook. I plan on, so far, specializing in the bakery/pastry field since I look at it as: The last thing a guest has is dessert, so it should be the last thing to leave their mind and the top reason they leave with a pleased smile on their faces. biggrin.gif

Future plans also include certification through the American Culinary Federation although I must have 2 years experience as well as my schooling to take the Certified Chef test before I can move to C.C.P, etc.

I received my undergrad at SUNY ESF, the forestry college in Syracuse... I was on the "woodsmans team" and we used to constantly kick Paul Smith's butt in lumberjack competitions.
