Right, i might not have been doing it for long. That is besides the point. 2 days is a long time 😛 I have been studying Landscaping for about 3 months now (plus another 6 months doing Horticulture). I have just picked up 2 days a week working from the Retail Nursery where i work on weekends. Yes they have a Landscaping company coming off the Nursery. Well anyhow, i just like the manual labour.
I used to work in IT. I was a support/ training/ hardware/installs guy. I used to travel heaps, i liked it. Then i got bored, and questioned why i was doing IT. I had studied IT for 3 years at College, and came out with a Diploma. I played “the game” for 2 years, then decided to move on. Now don’t get me wrong….i still love playing with PC’s and knowing all the latest shit that is happening (i.e. Flock, Web 2.0) I also love getting out into the outdoors and making stuff too. I like the feeling of having an end result. I guess the same can be said for anything (coding comes to mind). I have always liked making stuff, i got that from my Pa. He put something of his own on anything. Moses is a result of that, it has a 12v switch at the front to power a (non-existant) fan.
I also like the feeling of coming home completely grubby (dirty), tired, sore muscles and hungry. To me, that means that i have done something productive. It also helps that i get a kick ass tan, so i’ll be a bit browner the next time people see me. Just got to get the guts up to take the shirt off on-site, or at least wear the old WB (wife beater). I give myself a few more weeks, i dont want to get TOO much skin cancer!
What makes you happy, Champions?
