This month marks my 13 and a half year mark for being in the Air Force.  I started out enlisted as a RADAR/Electronic Warfare specialist and worked my way up to the rank of Staff Sgt.

I finished my degree and went to OTS in 2002 with a change in jobs to Space and Missile Officer.  I'm in the 3rd year of my 4 year missile tour and hoping to do some work with satellites next, hopefully with the GPS constellation.  I'm currently a 1st Lt and next month I'll be promoted to Captain.

I thought I should update this since I do have a new assignment and I'm currently in training to be an operator and crew commander for operating the GPS constellation.

For all of you with a Garmin...you're welcome.   :D

I am a mental health counselor, working my way to open my own practice. In addition to my regular full time counseling gig, I counsel part time in a private psychiatrist office.

Well, next year I'll still be teaching, but a different assignment.  I decided I had had enough of the stress of teaching a state mandated tested subject...US History.  I love US History, but I'm tired of the test stress.  So next year I'll drop down form 8th grade to 7th grade and teach Texas History.  No state tests and the kids don't yet have a chip of their shoulder.  BTW, it's also the Gifted/Talented and Honors kids so I'm really excited I won't have to spend so much time babysitting and can actually teach.

I work in market research to evaluate impact of pricing changes, distribution, advertising, trade promotions, new items, etc.  Pretty cool to see what goes on behind the scenes before someone buys a cup of yogurt.   ;)

That's excellent news!  Congratulations!  That's no easy accomplishment, especially with a full time job, two kiddos, and the U/C archives to maintain...........

Bumping up this old relic...

I currently work full time at a retail store as a peon(for one of the shittiest companies I have ever seen), despite the fact that I have a bachelor's degree. In addition to that, I also go to film school full time and work part time at the film school. with school I'm constantly working on my own projects and helping out other students with theirs. I haven't had a Saturday off since the beginning of August. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays are all 14 hour days for me. And on top of all of that I've been trying to plan my wedding. I've been doing all of this since August. Several times within the past month my work has basically told me that my schedule is no longer going to work with them and that I'd either need to go part time, drop out of school, or that I wouldn't be able to work there anymore. They have been giving me about the worst possible schedule that they can. Anything less than full time there and my girlfriend and I can't pay rent/bills. I've been working at this company for two and a half years.

I've been looking for other work for a while now, but because I'm now in school all day Mondays and Wednesdays and really need an additional day off for filming/mental sanity during the week most regular companies won't hire me. Fun.  :-X >:(

I work in the IT computer support field and have been doing that for over twelve years. I've been with my current company for four years next month. I'm also a part time photographer and full time dad.
