I am a carpenter/contractor.

My Mother is a classical musician. My Father a photographer, who for the better part of his life has been a carpeneter as well.

I sometimes wish I was in another field, especially since I learnt how to play the Piano at the tender age of 4. Sadly, I no longer play. :|

Nearing highschool graduation. Working in a fast food restaurant unfortuantely for the past 7 or so months, before that was doing temp work for a Funds company;( I have enough money now for university (I do not spend very much money) so it'll all be over soon...thankfully *rollseyes*

what do you mean by temp work?

Temporary. This means that you are called in when needed..though I basically went in everyday cause everyone else that applied was either rather...slow(some strange "actor" students etc.), or an immigrant. It was quite an easy job, just preparing envelopes to be sent out all around the country. I was 15 or so when I was doing that. Though it was very boring (10 dollars an hour though..which is good for University funds).

I work on the gardening and grounds crew of a college as well as doing my own work in the same field on the side for wealthy clients. I also have a small personal business drawing maps for magazines and books. It's a diverse income. ;)

My gal and I also have extensive vegetable gardens and a small orchard from which we eat--and this is basically a full-time job in and of itself. :P

I got into the field at 16, a few days after quitting high school. :D Mostly we concentrate on Floors, Stairs, and various other aspects of carpentry, all being manual labour of course . At 19 my brother and I started up our own business. Our whole workload is concentrated on private residential work, and even though we can hire people to do most of the work for us (and often do) we still do actual 'physical labour' on a daily basis.

It's tough work, after almost eight years of doing this, I am really starting to feel the effects (back, knees). :(

There are of course positives and negatives to every job, and this one is no exception. My biggest motivation for going to work every morning is that I can make more money than most University grads. :P The hours are always flexible, and I don't need to ask for permission when I want a day off or take a vacation. Most importantly, on a hot day like today I can always pop open a cold beer :guinness and not worry about a 'boss' giving me shit, believe me when I tell you, this is priceless ;) . This of course doesn't necessarily mean that I'm getting rich, but it sure beats working in a warehouse, driving a truck, or working at a fast food restaurant.

A grade 10 education doesn't give you many options. :)

I work in a technical field, but I am seeking a career shift to finance or accounting. I make 20% less working for a different company today than I did in the late 90's, very depressing. I've thought about taking some additional accounting classes and studying to take the CPA as accounting and finance are disciplines they don't seem quite so eager to ship overseas yet.

So far it's mostly nationalistic people that have bought them, because they can't get it form anyone else. They are handengraved and to be honest, everyone loves them (luck for me) ;)

I do "personally" glass too, for birthdays, marriages and so on...not only nationalistic.
Most popular though is the glass with the scull...and also other glass with, hmmm, swastikas, thors hammer etc...

I do logo's for clubs, parties etc too and many private customers, everyone like to have a glass with their unique picture/text.

I don't do portraits and landscapes though, take to much time ;)

A Revolution? Under current conditions a Revolution is not likely.

Nevermind, I bet you can make yourself useful elsewhere. :)

--------


What Army is this that will fight for White Nationalism?
A Revolution? Under current conditions a Revolution is not likely..No, a revolution is not likely at this time, however within our lifetimes Whites will become a minority in the main countries, America, U.K., Germany etc., and once that has happened it would take a miracle for us to avoid extinction. Therefore I think that we shall have to attempt a revolution before that happens, and we shall have to start and win a civil war. This will involve one part of the army in each country (us) fighting the other part (non-Whites and Commies).

P.S. People should bear in mind that as society breaks down, they and their families would be safe inside a military base while people are going nuts outside.

What do you draw? Is your avatar something you drew if so you've got real talent.

I don't only draw (though that is what i mainly do), I occassionally paint (which I royally suck at), sometimes try to do something constructive with clay, and more recently I've stolen a large boulder out of my neighbors yard and started to try to teach myself how to work stone. I'd like to be able to make my own collosal Rune Stones in the future. (The bastard must have weighed over two hundred pounds! And here I am trying to sneak it away in the middle of the night from across the boulevard!)

Sadly, I can't say the drawing is mine. I tried finding where I got it from... but I couldn't. If you saw the original, un-resized drawing, I doubt you'd think it's as good because there's a lot of squiggly lines and you can tell it's just a quick sketch. But I like the mood it gives off. If i can get my camera working, and the pictures uploaded, I could show off the half-portrait picture I drew, along with my 18x24" Mountain Drawing that took me forever-and-a-day to complete. I'll try to do that sometime over the next couple days.

EDIT: DOH! Forgot to answer your question. I draw numberous things, but it usually boils down to Dark Age and Medieval things (fight scenes, concepts of how people and armor might look in a certain position.) When I do draw fight scenes or the such, they usually have some Romantic (not in the love sense) undertone; such as the reason of the first column of men charging into a practical wall of spears, or like the drawing I'm currently working on where a Valkyrie is standing over the dying body of a warrior who has his hand outstretched towards her. Otherwise I just try to people (ok, women usually... but not in that way!) and make it so they they look actually real and believable - That's what got me so interested in Physical Anthropology in the first place. When I'm not doing that... I try to do some occassional landscapes. Mountains, usually.

Being skilled in Oil Painting is something really hard to accomplish. Half of it is just having Natural talent and feel for the canvas. I've tried it a few times in Art class but could only come up with Mediocre works.

You know not all Rocks can be chazeled and made into artwork. Only the softer rocks work. Marble is the best. It would be nice to get a chance and see some of your works. How do you sell your works by the way? I knew someone who has been quite successful selling their artwork on eBay.

I like to draw myself. I've been fond of doodling since I was a kid. Here's a few sketchs. The first two are mine the rest are my friends but I think they are really good examples of how realistic a sketch can be. Tell me what you think.

I've gotten some pointers from a brother of one of my father's friends who used to (still does?) work at a Quarry. Obviously I'm not getting hardcore artistic knowledge, but basic things like how to handle a hammer and chisel, and sheer off a smooth surface.

About your drawings, I really like them and I think they're really good, your friend is really quite good also, especially if you did them straight from your head. (I recognize the Night Elf Warden from TFT. Looks like it should belong in the strategy guide or something.) That's what I've been trying to get really good at lately, drawing stuff from my head. I don't always get it just right or the way I want it. However if you give my a picture to work from and I can produce something I can really be proud of (but at the same time, that depresses me because I'd like to be that good without a picture.)

Keep working on it. I still need something to look at to come up with something really good. But lately I have been getting better at drawing stuff entirely from my head. The more you sketch the better you become at it.

I used to work out of a warehouse for a store in my town, loading and unloading tables, chairs, tv's, washers, dryers, beds, freezers, fridges, dressers ect ect. It was a shitty job moving heavy stuff for a light paycheck. Right now I am a total loser with no job LOL!!! But then again its winter here, -40 weather, I pay my rent here with my folks now chopping firewood and keeping the house warm in the winter, not to mention saving money on the ellectric heating bill, that makes up for living here I think.

Work ? What's that ? I've been retired for 19 years. So, am I bored ? NO WAY! Am I idle ? NO WAY ! I taught at the college/university level for 32 years, 29 of them at the same school. What I can't understand today is How did I find time to go over to the University five days a week and teach ?

Aside from trying to maintain and improve a 92-year-old house, I have enough hobbies and activities to keep me busy for at least three lifetimes. In no day do I ever succeed in doing everything I had intended to.

I do not miss teaching. Today's students aren't as serious about their studies as those I had back in the 1950's and 1960's. The whole atmosphere in the university is very different from what it was then. I can only describe it as anti-intellectual. This I could accept, grudgingly, in the students, but when I find it in the FACULTY, that's too much.

I was "burnt out" three years before I retired. I went through the motions and tried to do my best , but I was painfully aware that what I was doing was NOT what my best had been. The enthusiasm and the satisfaction were gone.

One of my colleagues was wondering whether to retire or continue for a few more years. I told him, "Sam, when it's time to retire, you'll know it." He 'phoned a me a few months later and said just three words: "I know it."

Aside from some health problems, retirement has been the happiest years of my life. I recommend it VERY highly. :D

Yes, sure, it is not a favourable workplace if you have to act differently than you are. A good friend of mine worked at Subway's during a holiday and was like "And at one point the Turk that beat up one of my mates came in. I would have loved to spit on his sandwich, but I had to go like 'Oh, sir, what would you like to have', hated it."

Then again, if she is working at a genuine local store then that is indeed something worth of support. Yes, customers are a big problem, but it is always good to support the local economy, be they normal groceries, or honestly run pubs: We have two here, directly beside each other - the pub is owned, run and served by a patriotic Brit; the only other person serving a student as part-time, and that only since about amonth; and the shop is made up out of 4 indigenous workers, and the sign in the window says "local and proud of it". Seriously, got to support it as much as you can, as long as it still exists. ;)

Any store that employs teenagers from the neighborhood to do work in them instead of illegal immigrants makes me so happy. I will go out of my way to go to their store instead of others, because it really shows that they are putting their bottom line behind ensuring that deserving teenagers get a fair shake at entering the job market. I know of two delis that do this and a liquor store, and I would heartily recommend them if I have to. For what it is worth, it is their selling point.

And yes, love to retire at 55. :D

Maybe to Spain or even further into Europe, possibly even in the east depending on property value.

There's a TV show we watch sometimes about people buying houses abroad, what would buy you a very humble 2 bedroom terraced in the UK would buy you a very impressive possibly 4 bedroom detached house in France and other places.

I think I could get used to a gentler climate and get into self-sufficiency more. :D

I'm old enough to get a job while I'm at school, but I don't see the point. $7 an hour isn't worth the effort. I'd prefer good marks. Plus, I can do "chores" on the internet and get $50 an hour. :D Much better.

I'm a grad student right now, and recently had to quit work since my school schedule this semester doesn't leave me any spare time in the 9-5 time period at which normal business is conducted, so essentially all of my money comes from loans&scholarships in excess of tuition. I'm an accountant by trade, I do the odd project during the school term and work temp jobs during breaks from school.

When I was in undergrad, I worked in food services during the school year, retail over Christmas&spring breaks, and in a factory during summer breaks, all of which I am glad to have behind me-although working brain dead jobs did allow me considerable time to get lost in my own thoughts.

It's an ice cream shop that also sells fast food. Think McDonalds but the desert menu is expanded to be the main part of the business and the food part is shrunk to the role of McDonalds desert menu.

I'm a security guard and have gotten to try a few different things. Working in a shopping quarter, locking, unlocking, checking what has caused an alarm to go off, make rounds in the shops. Also to work with making rounds at offices &c, closing and opening subway stations, helping groceries close &c.

And yesterday I got to follow a money transporting van, go ahead of them to the ATM's they were about to put money into, check that nothing looked strange and then radio them in.

It's not a job I want to have forever, but it's a more than okay job at this time of my life that I've just finished studying and military conscription service and am about to move out.

Only the fact that I work almost exclusively at night is kind of tough. I am not good at turning the days around to normal time when I'm not working.

I'm a logger these days. I get to go hang out in the woods all day and mess with chainsaws and heavy equipment. Our little operation is pretty simple and goes something like.. one fellow cuts the trees down and then cuts the limbs and top off of it, another fellow drags them to the yard with a skidder, and then I look at the trees and decide based on what kind of tree it is, what it's diameter is, how straight it is, if it has any knots, if it's rotten, all kinds of things, what kind of a log to cut it into. Then I stack them up into sometimes big dangerous piles with a good ole' knuckle boom and when I have enough I load a truck.

This picture ain't of me but that is what I do...

Home stayed mother doing unpaid work, I think its one of the work which was undervalued by many people. Its a choice that made by individuals according to their needs. They should be valued for doing the house work from morning to evening. But I heard from a friend from state, saying homemakers are the most undervalued work in America, but I don't know if this is true, but I think its very hard work only certain people can do it, without being selfish. Thumbs up to all the mothers at the althing

Also, there are lots of slacker, trust-fund babies throughout the western world who've never done an ounce of labor in their lives. I know a few of this ilk. Insufferable, they are. ;)

Who me? :D My mother gives some of her trust fund money to me, but she always worked, even when I was growing up.

I worked a bit when I was in Scotland, yeah, for about one hour a week for a very sympathetic employer...

I once did an afternoon of retail for a dressmaker, I invigilated a gallery full of conceptual art, washed dishes for a few weeks when I was 14. I have not really worked, but I am not uneducated and not poor (not very rich either). I liked my jobs, although I screwed them all up and I do not have the type of ambition that most people have, and there is a reason for that...

You can live a good life without working. In the UK they give people who are autistic benefits worth about 800 pounds a month, and that is what I am doing. All I have to do is see the doctor once every two years and he signs me off for another two years. I probably could work and I am trained to do something, but since I have no social ambition and an inability to plan for the future, it never quite happens for me and it is too much pressure for me to manage my accounts etc. It has been a strain on relationships, as I go out to play every day, or just stay in and read or even sleep and people find that irritating when they are going to work, even if I cook for them and help them out all the time.

I was think about training as a plumber, er... for about five minutes... :D It is a shame in a way because part of me wants to be "just like everyone else" and do a job that I enjoy, but it just is not possible as I always run into problems and misunderstandings, so I have given up entertaining thoughts of working. It is just a fantasy for me. I am unemployable. I was self-employed under a very benevolent employer for a while, but it was not worth it.

I was thinking about proof-reading for a while. I do not want to do the job which I am trained to do because it can be so draining and the money is not enough and I want all my time to be for me. Selfish? Yes, but, for me, other people are nearly always more effort than reward.

So what do I do? I make daily routines which I program in a very anally retentive way into my telephone so that I can just float about without really thinking about what to do. I try to go to one or two yoga classes a day. I eat at different restaurants. I have put together a weekly routine making Thursday my day of rest and relaxation, and Wednesday my day of fasting. Friday afternoons I will be doing life drawing classes. Leaving Sat, Sun, Mon, Tues for maybe doing some painting...

...and I am thinking of taking part in a silly medical trial to do with diabetes to raise some extra money for a holiday somewhere temperate, maybe the Canary Islands again or perhaps one of those dreadful 'yoga holidays'. :D

I would love to meet someone who would like to share all this with me but they all too busy with their jobs and their careers and their social ambitions to want to hang around with a 'slacker' like me and I just irritate people with my anal routines and talent for appalling gaffes. (I was banned from a friends house for calling round at the same time everyday and causing family rows!)

My personal needs are always greater than their social needs, and that is how I like it.

I am sympathetic towards people who do not want to work in Britain, because in this society, the capitalists fleece you with money-lending and the socialists tax you. They are all thieves. It is morally wrong and no-one really wants to be part of that system unless they are rich and moneyed or being part of the machine which implements it. Self-employed tax-dodgers are probably going the right way.

So, no, I do not work, but have a lot of spare time which I can give to the right person or people.

Perhaps I would like to be a house husband for a young lady in a similar situation to myself. :D



I would like to add that I am well travelled and that I have done a whole host of interesting things with my spare time, like stuff for theatre, including taking a production up to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2002. It is hard to stop oneself from descending into atrophy, but I have managed it, although I do consider myself to have now retired and I often spend days (and sometimes house parties) in my dressing gown.

And People will nick anything.

The plus side of the job is I decide when I have breaks and basically what I do and I get left to get on with it in the main, it can be interesting at times but it can also be pretty boring, just walking around watching people.

When I was a student I worked in a variety to part time jobs, so I could afford to pay for tuition fees and food (I didn't always manage to pay for food, as I put my fees first =( ended up very hungry one semester). I did labouring, childcare, data entry, mathematics tutoring, and worked in a library. The reason I appreciate working in an office now is because I spent a fair bit of time working outside in the heat of the summer or cold of the winter being paid only minimum wage.
