I am somewhat computer savvy.. One of the odd things I do is help people I know with networking and some computer issues (I'm good with computer, but I'm not schooled much with programing..). The problem in that field is school. I have some sort of issue when it comes to learning about
that type of stuff. I don't do well in a class like setting, most of what I've learned is self taught. I just can't seem to focus when it comes to that type of stuff... I'm in a business major right now, which I hate but it's a walk in the park for me. I'm able to stay focused and get my work done... I did some engineering classes when I first started attending college and I realized I just can't do the mathematical type of work involved in any technical field. I honestly think I have some type of add or something, I always had a hard time staying focused in school. I'm doing some psychology right now, and I LOVE it.... I'm thinking very much about
going into clinical psychology! Everyone tells me I should go into computer work, and I just can't seem to make them understand that I can't seem to do the technical schooling needed.
I am in the process of starting a business (with my wife), we are trying to
open a pet store but everything seems to keep clogging up the cogs. We have the building, and are demoing the inside, but we are running into issue after issue. We both have always wanted this, and we both actually attended vocational school a few years back for animal science. We are both huge animal lovers.. These are someof the reasons for our passion:VIEW IMAGEVIEW IMAGEVIEW IMAGE
These do help to relive some stress and helps me to relax a bit:VIEW IMAGEVIEW IMAGEVIEW IMAGEVIEW IMAGEVIEW IMAGEVIEW IMAGE
I know the pictures are really all that relevant, but they (well the subjects of the pictures) are what often inspire me to keep going, and push through the pain to keep going and get our business started. The demo work really play heck on my back.
My mother keeps telling me I should apply for disability, I just can't do it. First off, I have yet to get a true good dx. Second, I'm not going to stop doing the physical labor I do such as the demo of our building. I think if they found out about
stuff like that they'd be like "huh... doesn't look like you have back problems to me"... It's not that I don't have pain, I'm just stubborn and a glutton for the punishment of my actions!!!
I have done a lot of factory work in the past, and I think that contributed to some of my problems... Not to be racist, but a 6' person working on a machine that was built in Japan, for a Japanese person doesn't play so well on an already stressed back. I also owned my own cleaning business, and one of my accounts was cleaning the Outback Stakehouse in my area, ever tried moving a 600lb grill on a floor with zero traction due to grease!!!???! The kitchen of that place has more grease and oil in it than my crappy oilleaking jeep!! Let me just say I'm glad I don't eat meat (I could NEVER eat at that place!!!). I'm sure that didn't help my back much. I did that job for 8 months straight with no days off : ( . Just thought I'd give some what I DID to go with what I do and want to do. Also I just felt like rambling.
