Don't you mean TO the dark side? 

Architects/Designers:  Dream up some crazy ass idea that will never work.

Engineer:  Figure out how to make it work.
I cant even think of something witty to say to that because it is so true
LOL, you guys are cracking me up.  Well I am not an Engineer or Architect, I am trying to finish school to become an Engineer.  But I currently Design commercial buildings, Estimate them and than project manage them.  So basically I start them and follow through with them till the end.  I aslo have my own business designing residental homes, remodels, custom, whatever they want.  Architects IMHO are living in fantasy land.  I have seen some crazy $hit from these guys, just because you draw it does not mean you can build it.  I have been through that too many time to count.  But I enjoy looking at there stuff.

Corn detassler-Did this until my eyes swelled shut once on a test plot.  The company paid the med. bill.

Telemarketer-Did this for three years when the average was six months.  People thought it was stressful, I just thought it was cool to piss people off for $7.00 an hour.  Citibank was the biggest client.

Janitor(for a university and factory cookbook press)-The U. had the best benefits though the pay was horrid.

Para-educator-Worked with a BD/LD student who caused two other paras to resignwithin three months.  I worked with him for a year before I graduated.  People didn't talk to me for a month since they thought I'd leave-they were wrong.Cool

*graduation*

Teacher-this is my seventh year.   I'm now in my first year at a residential treatment school that serves female mental health client/students and chemical dependent  boys who are finishing their treatment program and earning graduation credits or their GED.  I love what I do.

For the last 7years I've been a professional Firefighter/Paramedic in a mid-sized (150,000) Texas city. Although at the beginning of last October I started working (on my days off from the FD) as a Sales Rep for a large telecom company. For the most part I sell Fiber optic solutions, and very high end connectivity to businesses. I met my manager at my local smoke lounge about a year and a half ago. We got to be good friends and last summer he convinced me to interview for the job. Well I nailed the interview and got the job, but am just not sure if I'm ready to give up being a Fireman. Becoming a firefighter at the city I work for is extremely difficult, usually 500 people take the entrance exam for 3-4 positions. So now I'm making more money than I've ever dreamed about, but working my ass off at two jobs. Oddly my manager has no problem with me working another job as long as I hit quota. The best part about the telecom job is most of the time my manager and I will work out of the smoke lounge instead of our offices.
