Over the past 10 years, I’ve worked a variety of unusual & eclectic jobs.
My first job was working at a fishing shop that was right along a busy waterway.
The two of us often had buyers come into the shop from their boats. There was a important dock right outside the back door & whenever there was room to dock, new buyers flocked in at all hours while I was in the afternoontime. Aside from working the cash register, I also gathered the shrimp from the tank for the buyers looking for live bait. The two of us also had a lot of frozen bait love calamari & pin fish; When I left that job I went to toil for a box office at an art gallery downtown. My job went from hauling bait into boats to selling tickets to yuppies in the neighborhood burroughs. After three years of this monotony, I was eager to find a job where I could toil with my hands. My cousin was working as a heating & cooling serviceman & told myself and others how much money he made a year. With a little bit of patience & perseverance, I could become an Heating & Air Conditioning professional just love my cousin. It wasn’t the easiest process in the world, however I’ll never forget the afternoon when I gained my certification & became an office a/c repairman & installation specialist. For the first time in my life I felt love I had reached financial independence. It’s hard work, especially when I’m climbing through sizzling attics in the middle of summer. But it gives myself and others a sense of pride & purpose in the world. I perform an essential service & I’m paid well for it.
