i work at a call center doing tech support for apple. it makes me want to fucking murder myself.

I work at a tech support call center, too. It's kinda boring and I hate being inside all day, but I do spend an extraordinary amount of time screwin off. I draw and and look at stuff on the internet all day.  I research various topics from local and California History to outdoor survival to marine animals, all kinds of stuff about alcohol, musicians, I've read through the gamut of conspiracy theories and paranormal crap, I check out the funny news stories of the days and look at skateboard stuff all the time. I do get really sick of skate stuff though especially some of the negativity on message boards, but it gets boring reading new articles and wikipedia all the time and I need to read something with personality, that's why I come on here.

yeah, it's really not too bad when i think of how much non-work i actually do. but i think i've just reached the end of the line in terms of patience for dealing with the actual job. what do you do tech support for?

Routers, switches and networking crap. I just create the cases. I don't actually know anything.

how old are you, man? When i was 18-21 my homie had that gig, except he delivered chinese food, and we had a blast. Driving around, burning down, drinking, making dough on the side because the gas station was 24hrs and he had the overnight shift, skating the panted curb stops in the lot..... enjoy it while it's there!

I actually did hit another skater in the face with my shoe once at a demo doing a shoes fly off kickflip but he was cool with it.

Work at a skateshop.  Ten years deep and definitely over it.  I'm moving to Spain for six months and when I get back I'm going to try and do the merchant marines.  Hopefully it pans out and I enjoy it.  I need to do something with my life.

I like this thread.

I'm a junior in College studying Urban and Regional Studies and don't work right now. I just took a test for a census job though and did really well, so hopefully come spring I'll be doing door to door bullshit for 12 bucks an hour.

I don't even know my title anymore.  Something like Business Systems Analyst/Assistant Network Admin/eCommerce operator deal.

I don't get paid nearly enough, although the company (camera bags) and everyone working there is really cool.  Hopefully getting a raise soon.

I cook at a Portuguese restaurant. I pretty much make well done steak and eggs with rice and fries all day. It might as well be the only thing on the menu.

i run a skate shop out of my apartment and thats about it right now.
its weird because i have a college degree and i can get a nice corporate job that pays really well but i refuse to live the life of a drone.
i've been there, done that and i hated every minute of it.  so instead i stay poor and hungry but i have lots of time to skate and enjoy my life. 

i wish i could make enough with the shop but everyone knows skateboarding doesn't pay.  so now i'm looking to get an early morning gig but its been kind of hard to find.  something from 6am - 2pm so i can still do the shop when the kids get out of school.

Dude, learn something from Jason Crolley. Be an adult newspaper delivery guy, the ones that take the bundles and drop them off at places early in the morning.

Not too sure, call up a local newspaper company or look in their classifieds, they usually have postings there.
Jason Crolley is only the pinnacle of Winnipeg skateboarding, not the best style though.

I want to be my own boss.  In pure Popps dickride fashion, I've decided I need to start producing something as a hobby, and sell it for a nice profit.  I'm just not sure what... preferably it would be cheap and easy to make, and I could enjoy it myself.  What do people in a city need?  What would be worth me delivering/people coming to pick up?  I'm not talking about drugs either.  Hmmmmm.......

I was working at a drug, alcohol and suicide crisis line operator for two years. I just recently quit and got a CSR 1 on call position at a community center to fill in the downtime when I can't skate and while I wait to see if I am accepted into Graduate School.

currently unemployed but have a degree in horticulture and I am looking for jobs as landscape designer, golf course assistant superintendent, plant health care specialist, or City parks worker. I likes to work outside in the summer.

I used to work at a screen printing shop, it was a great job but didnt pay much. It was located a near a college and the owner was this old stoner guy and we would just blaze all day, watch the girls walk by, and print all kinds of crazy t-shirts and other things. I suggest opening a screen printing shop to all the artists out there with no direction.
Sorry, sometimes I get overly defensive on that point.

i just got a new job in austin at a large financial company doing desktop UI development in WPF. going to be a fun project. WPF is a really fun technology and my main focus while job hunting so i was stoked to get something in that area. the environment is very google ish; serious about work but casual about everything else. and the buidling i'm going to be working in is really nice which will be a welcome change from the shit pile i work in now.

I'm a substitute teacher that works with special needs/handicapped children. Its a cool job, can be stressful as hell somedays but its rewarding. The kids are hell raisers at time but they're awesome. On some weekends I work as a short order cook for the concession stand at an indoor soccer center. I'm like Raekwon in that kitching, straight Chef'n it. All that while attempting to get my full time teaching degree and also move up from being a sub to being full time Teacher's Assistant like I was. Good pay and great benefits, plus being paid for snow days and school breaks while the rest of the world works is so so damn sweet.
