I suppose I should start with my own introduction. My name is Adrian, I'm 22 years old and I work as a tax accountant. Slowly and surely I am dying of boredom here as I'm coming up on my 2 year mark. If I could choose my career with the assumption of success I would want to be a streamer (I love video games) or a software engineer (I love the ability to make websites, I have my own, but it's rather unsophisticated and juvenile). Now that I finished, it is your turn!

I talk to idiots that usually make more money than i do and seem to have issues with being able to send a fucking email after 25 years on the job.
I don't know if that was supposed to be funny or not but it made me laugh.


Oh, I guess I should say what I do. I am a Civil Engineer who works in the Transportation field.

You work in IT too? LOL!

I'm in IT. Kind of fell into it after starting out in construction management and getting bored.

I'm more on the infrastructure end of things. Not a programmer or applications specialist. Jack of all trades, master of none. Everything from basic help desk duties to managing the set up the infrastructure for whole sites. In my job my construction management experience comes into play as a project management role for these types of projects.

Every day is different. I look after 8 or so locations in my region. Both of those points are good fits for me even if it is crazy at times.

Yea, I was trying to be droll.

Yea, we have around 100k emps to support. Been stuck in it for 8.5 years with no option to advance, it sucks.

Same for me, though I'm in traffic for a major civil firm. I did intern for a commuter railroad's engineering department during college, so I know some railroad stuff as well.

Hardware (Electrical) engineer. I write datasheets and make sure all our customers have their engineering questions answered in writing. Been doing this for ~5 years.

When they ask me the same question over and over again, I kindly smile and say to them, please RTFM.

I have a newfound love for those who write datasheets and instruction manuals.

That’s really cool, I thought about being an engineer, but I hated school and didn’t want to go for more than 4 years.

Wow, so what are some main ailments you treat? I’ve never come across someone with your career!

The career that pays the bills is as a Senior Applications Developer for a large engineering and manufacturing company. What my job consists of is managing and planning software projects and the company data, to be used internally/externally via various web portals. The websites I work with net the company over 1 billion annually.


No real clue why, but once or twice a month I will work at my local quick-lube as a trainer and pit master. Maybe it's a need to get my hands dirty, or to share my knowledge. Or is it the free oil changes I just don't know. I had spent over 10 years in the industry at high volume corporate locations in the past and have done over 200,000 oil changes.


I am a volunteer at a local fire department as a firefighter, EMT, and specialized rescue. Been doing this for about 20 years now.


I also work with the National Weather Service as a storm-spotter. I've followed storms from Arizona into Wisconsin. Even got a picture looking straight up into a funnel cloud.


In my free time I um um really don't do too much

Currently I'm a stay at home dad but hopefully starting next year sometime I can open a shop of some sort to do custom automotive lighting. As soon as I get my retrofit done, I'll start getting out to some meet and greets with some established custom shop owners and get my name out there.

So, wheres the Prius?
No Prius and I'm not a vegetarian either:wink2: I do try to buy humanely raised though. For me it's about helping people feel better, not being super "hippy"and I love driving my M6. Western medicine doesn't have a lot of options for chronic issues and what I do helps.

Pretty much any issue you can think of can benefit but pain is generally 80% of what I treat. Back pain, headaches and injuries all respond well. Acupuncture is increasingly being used for fertility issues as well. I also help people with sleep, stress anxiety, etc.

Does your line of work also see patients with allergies? How does the treatment compare to traditional allergy shots?
