I work in healthcare data reporting, but I studied film, literature and art and I've been trying to get some form of creative career off the ground for the past 15 years. I've done client work, put out a couple of apps, tried selling prints, and then more recently this led to me recreating Real Ghostbusters frames in 4K. I just can't seem to break into it as a profession and time has kinda run out for me as I am officially "too old". Bummer.
Currently endeavoring to teach myself Unity so I can do 2D game development as a one-man band.
Worked as a security guard for 15 years before that (6yr as a supervisor). Also moonlit as a bouncer at a friends bar for a few years off and on while working security and then full time for a couple years after I quit security also helping out in the kitchen and tending bar ontop of working the door and "supervising" other bouncers lol (cant escape it!). No more Security work for me!
Did and still do some construction and landscaping work on the side, fun stuff!
I used my downtime at work to write my first book.
Now that I'm in upper management, my days are filled with interruptions, meetings, and politics.
I've been trying for *months* to finish the last two chapters of my third book.
There’s a sad thought I’ll leave you with. At some point in time everyone comes inside from playing outside for the last time & didn’t realize it. Same with Toys. One day we played with our toys for the last time & didn’t even realize it. Kinda sad. Everytime I see a kid nowadays I wanna grab them & say “cherish these times! One day they’ll be gone and you can never get it back”. Remember when adults use to tell you that & you didn’t really listen? Life was carefree and wondrous.
