As a young kid,I raked neighbors lawns for cash.But that's probadly it.I guess I was a lazy bastard!But I had plenty of early teen jobs.I worked in a donut shop(Honeydew),dog kennel,video store(Blockbuster),and three supermarkets.I also worked security when I left highschool.My two favorites out of the aforementioned jobs would have to be the dog kennel and the security job.But both eventually wore me down!The security job was good because I did absolutely nothing,and had a lot of time to read and such.But the night shift(11-7)drove me crazy!The dog kennel was also good for a while because I simply love dogs.But after about two years of constant barking I had enough.The ear plugs they gave me didn't work.Around holidays it was usually me and one other person with about four or five hundred dogs.Im now working in the mortgage biz.

I had an afternoon paper delivery route - 60 houses or so - that I did from 7 or 8 to 13, I believe.

At 14, I worked Saturdays at an herb/gift shop for four years and off-and-on later.

At 16, my first *get a W-2* job, I worked as a dishwasher and bus boy at the Holiday Inn Terrace Restaurant.

At 17, I worked at a 4-screen movie theater downtown.

The Summer prior to my freshman year of high school I worked at a food booth in Old Indiana Fun and Water Park.

After one year of college when I decided not to immediately return, I got a job at Fujicolor Processing doing quality inspections, hanging and loading rolls of film in a darkroom, notching negatives, and printing paper rolls from them.

But seriously, I was doing a lot of different stuff, from working in a medical office to promoting parties, to doing some charity work at centers for disabled.
I have done tons of different jobs and not all of them were for money.

First job: working in my mom & step-dad's restaurant as a child. I peeled shrimp, pounded veal and chicken into cutlets, basic prep stuff. i earned .25 a day at first but was getting .75 a day when i stopped working. talk about child labor laws! lol!

i babysat and worked for an ice cream shop on the beach when i was still young (working for cash). i always gave people way too much ice cream. lol! i also had a tendency to give all my friends free ice cream. :o

i was a hostess at a dinner theater as my first "real" job when i was a freshman in highschool. then i got a job cleaning banks (just vacuuming and dusting/cleaning counters). finally, i worked as a waitress for about 3 years (sophmore - senior year).
my last job before going off to college was working for a travel agency, not as a travel agent, but as a book keeper and receptionist.

in college i was a waitress and a nanny until i finally got a job in my field during graduate school.

currently i am a self employed pyschological consultant to school districts. They look for my expertise and advice when they have students with various "issues". i basically come in and "diagnose" the problems and give them recommendations as to the best way to address the issues so the student can be as successful as possible (academically, socially, emotionally, behavirally). i also do trainings for teachers. so, yeah..kinda a businesswoman. ;) :p


are you not taking classes anymore?

I've never really done any jobs to get paid, my mom's boyfriend gets me to build things a lot though. Like we fix up the house and the yard. The hardest thing I've ever had to do was to help him build a pretty big shed when I was around 13 years old. The boards were heavy so it took my bro and I (he was around 7) kind of a long time to transport them. Then we finally had to cut them into a good size and I had to do all this stuff... It really sucked up my energy.

My friend I hit puberty by the time I posted that first pic. But like I said at the time, it was a real bad picture of me. It made me look really young. My looks havent changed much in the past year, so for instance that picture there <<< is basically what I looked like when I was being told I look 12 etc. Photo's can be misleading. :)

Feisty I finished my years of college. The only thing ahead of me now is University, which is all dependent. I have my A-levels now... and im just living it up. But I need to get a job and sort myself out quickly from this point. :)
