I don't normally do surveys, but I thought it might help some get to know me better. :D
1. ONE OF YOUR SCARS, HOW DID YOU GET IT?
On my knee, I was around 8 years old, playing a game during recess, slid towards the pole, problem is the pole was in the ground with cement holding it in
place and the top of the cement was sticking out a bit.
2. WHAT IS ON THE WALLS IN YOUR ROOM?
Nothing actually. got a mirror on the dresser if that counts.
3. WHAT JOBS HAVE YOU HAD?
Worked in a computer department at a Government facility as part of a high school class thing.
Worked retail at Canadain Tire for a while. I learned that sort of job was pretty boring and time seemed to drag on. But the Christmas season was fun.
Worked at the front desk of a hotel night shift. This was the most boring job I have had. The only thing to do was watch basic cable and the only thing on at night was star trek deep space nine. That got boring really really fast.
Worked at a computer programming company, at first doing data entry and program testing. The testing was pretty fun at first. Then some programming but I didnt like that most of the time. During this time I realized my interest for photography again.
I then worked for a professional photographer as his assistant doing weddings. This was my favourite job up to this point. I actually looked forward to going to work.
Then I worked at a portrait studio. This was pretty good most of the time. :) I got to meet some cool people.
And now I have my own photography business. :D
