Contrary to popular belief I am in fact from this planet, Earth. While it may not seem that way some of the time. I have had regular jobs with normal people, except for working at Quassy when I was a teenager. Check it out, it’s a real place.
Everybody needs a resume, even me. Most of my “professional” experience comes from 20+ years working in digital printing. In that field I have learned desktop publishing, some camera work, some drafting skills, digital prepress, file conversion and network management. I have also worked with Dreamweaver and HTML, dabble in social media sites like Facebook and Twitter and manage my own blog (you wouldn’t be here if you didn’t already know that).
I am finished with the digital printing business. The last job I had was as a copy monkey at Staples and it literally drove me to drink and straight into rehab, twice from the same company. (Don’t ever work for Staples if you value yourself at all.)
My hobbies are basically thinking about science and math and computer programming. I read for fun rather than watch television but, when I do I like to watch Dr. Who (new and old doctors) as well as Criminal Minds type shows. I don’t know where anyone would find the time and the energy to go through all the trouble of being a mass murderer or serial killer. I really don’t care enough one way or the other to consider other people that much but, I still find the shows riveting for the psychological factor.
I waste a lot of time following the Boston Red Sox and playing ESPN Fantasy Baseball with some people I knew from years ago. My team is called the Quincy Quarks and I am in last place, again – I have been in last place for at least three years now but I have a new strategy and this is rebuilding year. When I’m not in school, in class, doing homework or as President of the Addiction Awareness Club, I volunteer most of my free time at A New Way. Trying to stay busy as well as useful is a full time job.
I’m not really looking for a job right now. Between unemployment, financial aid, research studies and the blood lab I make enough to get by while I’m in school. Eventually though I will have to get a “real job” and that is why I’m in school – to become a Physics teacher.
Some skills I left off my resume (it could seem intimidating):
- Obtain a position as Astrophysicist where I can make a positive contribution.
- Huge working experience with electromagnetism and thermodynamics
- In depth knowledge of nuclear physics, statistical mechanics
- Proficient with quantum mechanics
- Ability to interpret and visualize the distant astronomical phenomena which are complex
- Ability to formulate complex concepts into theories and mathematical formulae
- Ability to communicate with them effectively
