Well I am a grounds supervisor for a nonprofit low income housing company. Been doing this for 6 years now

I have sent a few apps out for a 2nd job, the best one I hope I get to be a bar tender at a higher end sports bar that my friend works at as a chef.

I also do dry wall jobs under the table for my friends business

And have been doing tons of under the table auto body repair jobs through another friend's shop.

And once in a great wile, I sleep

All of this in hopes of owning my own home and getting married and being in debt as little as possible

Well I started with JET databases and VBA programming (was pretty good too). Now I am the DBA (practically SA) of three MS SQL 2000 servers. (1 dual 650, a quad 2.8 and an eight processor 3.2 collectively about 3 TB of HDD and around 10-12 GB of ram. We get two more soon too, they will be quad processor ( but each will be dual core 64 bit). We do alot of ASP.NET and OLAP cube reporting, as well as good ole reporting services. Starting to learn some C# myself, but honestly prefer being server admin.

Well damn, I probably met you before then. I've given you some business. I used to work for Kelly Ford in Melbourne until February. Since then I had a stint with a Pontiac/GMC dealership and now I work on Dodges and that's where the money is at for this moment in time.

lol, true, I was an assistant store manager of Winn-Dixie, but my store closed and they had no openings at other stores, so I had to step down, but I kept the same pay! But its hard to get respect when you say "Im a dairy manager at winn-dixie". People just kinda chuckle. But like you said, its a good job in management.
