The Data Zone

I love data, numbers, stats, etc. Anything that contains numbers. Perhaps that is why I stayed working as a bookkeeper for almost seventeen years. Or it could have been the lovely friendships I developed with my co-workers.  🙂 Miss them lots.

If I could have my choice of a paying job it would be data entry. Note I put paying job! 🙂  Writing is my fun, creative, non-paying job. 🙂  Perhaps it will pay nicely someday. I do write some for pay but the assignments are few and nothing I could live off.

But it does help buy a few books! 🙂

My love for data began in my early twenties when I landed a temporary job inputting soil data for an agriculture company. Long numbers of data! I’m weird but it was fun. The co-workers and owners were awesome! The best ever Christmas party was by them out of all of my jobs thus far.

A dinner theatre! It was a Neil Simon’s play, Barefoot in The Park!

Loved it! The juicy steak for the meal was the icing on the cake!

It was sad when the temp job came to an end.

I almost changed my major in college from Pre-Architecture/Interior Design to Statistics. I like math, I just don’t love it enough to study it mainly. I got to have my art!

Have you always wanted your original career or job?

  1. I’ve wanted to be a teacher since I was 6 and a writer since I was 10. I started babysitting and then got a job at a preschool. At the age of 22, I’m still teaching (as well as the director of my church’s sunday school program) and even though the writing doesn’t pay (yet 😉 ), I’m still writing and getting closer to that dream each day.
    It’s a wonderful feeling to be living the dream. 🙂
