I have had just about every job imaginable and currently am a part-time independent, self-employed Pet-Sitter. I may go professional, but my Elementary Education Degree w/ a minor in Library Media is in my grasp. I want to get the degree before I make up my mind!! I love animals with a passion, but also feel I have alot to offer children.

No, really.

I work for a major insurance company on their technical helpdesk. I am a second level contact for the sales agents, and office personnel. That works out to roughly 8000 peolpe country wide, many of which have no computer experience whatsoever. So, I stress for a living .

I'm a registered nurse (RN) but I don't work in a hospital. I work with people who are injured on the job or in auto accidents; my official title is Field Case Manager. I travel to patient's homes to meet with them and discuss their injury and treatment, I also meet with them at their doctor appointments to discuss how they're progressing (or not) and find out what sort of treatment (therapy, surgery, medications) is needed to get them recovered so that they can (safely) return to work. I am sort of an intermediary between the patient, their employer and the worker's compensation insurance company.

Translation: I meet a lot of people, 99% nice 1% not; I travel A LOT (about 2 hrs in all directions radius); I write a LOT of reports and am buried in paperwork when not behind the wheel! When I am not on the road, I do work from my home, which is a wonderful thing, except when the kitties try to help me type reports!

I'm almost 26 and I am a Pharmacy Technician. I've been working in the Pharmacy field for 5 years and absolutely love it. BUT...due to the lack of pay I receive, I am changing my career. I will start my training to become an Assistant Manager for WalMart in September. Once I am a Asst. Manager for a couple of years, I have the option to become a Store Manager and can keep moving up the Ladder!

nunny, here's a quote from Mary Anne (hissy) about scrimshaw:

Scrimshaw evolved from the whaling days when the ships were out for such a long period of time and the sailors got bored. Someone took a whale's tooth and scratched a design on it, then put ink over the design, wiped it off, and there was the first scrimmed piece. You basically take your material and with a small tool called a scrimmer (looks like a pencil except the tip is a needle, or these days, a carbide point) You draw your design on the material. Then you take ink and apply the ink over the design, take a cloth and wipe it off and the ink goes down and stays in the grooves of the scratches.

I got into it, when a client asked Mike if he knew anyone who could scrim the handle of his knife. The knife was bone, and the man wanted a grizzly bear. Mike told him I could do it! :P It took a few attempts on other material, but I have always liked to draw and so I did a small head of a grizzly and got paid for it. So I was on my way.
Hope that helps!
