Hey Huggies, check out adding Reiki to your massage techniques. A type of energy balancing, it's very beneficial and I know a few folks who are doing both quite successfully.

I'm in between jobs and don't want to talk about the start-up biz I'm starting for fear of jinxing it. I let you know when it's up and running!!

Right now I'm a line cook, but prior to this job my previous positions have been:

Busser/Food Runner, Jalapeno's Mexican Restaurant
Busser/Host, Kelsey's Steak House
Janitorial, Wismarq Corp.
Lawn Mowing/Landscaping, A+J Lawn Services
Sales and Deliveryman/ Manufacturing, Home City Ice
Kitchen Help, IU Food Courts
Resident Assistant, Indiana University
Deli Professional (lmao at THAT title), Marsh Inc.

Thats my entire work history I think, ages 15-22. I think I've only been unemployed for about 6 months of that time. I have no problem getting jobs just to keep the cash coming in, what I'm worried about is starting an actual career this fall. People only seem to want to hire me when I have 2-3 experience!

I spent most of my life in and around the military .... done everything from repair electronics on B-52s on the flight line in North Dakota to office work in remote locations, to office work in the Pentagon and other Virginia places and Hawaii. Also did office work for the entomology dept of the Bishop Museum (cockroaches, anyone?) and worked for a vet for a year in Florida. Since I live in and with the military, I did whatever work was available. And yes, I learned the hard way that a love for cooking didn't mean I could be a chef (I sweat way, way too much).

Warning to everyone... do not make Pook angry whatever you do!!

My occupations:
previously I worked as a...

staff artist at a silk screening joint
score keeper at a US Navy softball league
fitness instructor at a Nautilus Centre
assistant manager at a so called "health food" joint
shop clerk at Borders

I no longer work outside home, I just do some odd jobs to help out my partner Cris/his clients at home on our puter, though I wish I could do a bit more and I am constantly learning something new so I can be more useful, I am perfectly happy with what I am doing

I work at a self storage that sits on 11 acres of buildings, standard and climate control and parking. I also lease out UHAUL equipment. Parking 26' trucks has been interesting, to say the least. Especially the 5 speed diesels. LOL
