railroad

All those songs about trains...

I work for the largest railroad around,
supervising traffic through the rail yard.

It's interesting that when I rode the train,
we'd sometimes just get in a van or bus
and ride from point A to point B.

We call it Dead-Heading...
everyone gets a kick out of me because
I just jam on The Dead the whole way!

... not a bad way to make a day's pay!

day job

i work for a blood bank here in alabama. it's a very meaningful job.i guess i had necer really thought about giving blood really saving lives, but it really is true. i see it everyday.i recently lost my mother on 01/01/07 (brain cancer), so it feels really good to be able to give back so someone can have more time with their loved one.

career vs job(s)

tj crowley

have been in the addiction(s) frield now 19yrs...lived in nyc (astoria queens) deciding to return to college (dropped out '71 'lehman college' c u n y bronx) to find something to help in getting out of nyc with a trade. hunter college (communication's) lead to john jay university (family dynamics, addiction's). trained at graice square hosp (nyc) and interned at regent hosp (nyc). bought land on a mountian (poconos, n.e.Pa.) and secured position in addiction frield working initiall in county jails putting together intervention/prevention programs. 3rd child arrived ("how'd that happen?") and offered position in n.w.NJ working in a long term (10 - 14 months) in-patient treatment (alina lodge) and have been here now 8 years.

for relaxation/fun (besides hanging w/ my now 9yo son) i do a radio broadcast from east stroudsburg university (where i entered to complete BS/BA -psychology/sociology/theology - that i dropped out from in '71) which highlights the sounds and vibes of the 60's/70's with a splash of the 50's and todays sounds. the show airs fried-days 6pm - midnite (e.s.t.) locally 90.3fm (w e s s ) and on the web www.esu.edu/wess. have beenb doing the grateful dead hour for 10+ years and the show has been voted best broadcast for 11+years. move over 'for-profit radio' .. college (the real fm) radio is bringing the sounds to the people.

I am an artist

I do site specific installations directly inspired by the space and yup you guessed it The Grateful Dead. I was actually lucky enough to get Dennis Mcnally to visit one of my shows in NYC. It was a thrill.

Most boring job in the world perhaps?

I work in a small town movie store where I do nothing but sit, play videogames, and watch movies.

Teacher

I teach 5th and 6th grade in San Diego, California. I have been doing this for 5 years now and it is always a challenge and is usually fun. Those kids keep me on my toes. As for the previous post from WalplolechinaCat, don't ever be ashamed of your faith. There is nothing wrong with faith:)
