I am a full time stay at home Dad.. Best job in the world. 

Mad respect to you, too often (including in my own life) I hear nothing other than stories of dads just being uncaring utter d******ds. It always cheers me up to meet a dad who actually cares for their kids :)

**Story told in the key of ".gif"**

I started off in my family business, but quit and actually joined the military to avoid life as a mortician.

Perhaps not the greatest choice.

The military found something fun for me to so...

After that, and STILL not wanting to hang around creepy things - I went back to school (Business Management/Organizational Development)

I then began herding the cats.

I work for a company that makes petfood. My job is to "develop talent"..... and "mentor the unwilling"

I'm close to early-retirement now, and it can't happen fast enough. A lot of Real Life People are just evil...

Joined the military straight out of school, got assigned to some R&D section, doing "weapon analysis", on results from test firing assorted naval ordinance at ship sized chunks of basalt off the coast of Scotland, then I left the military after the Falklands war and went into IT Operations, mostly on "mini computers" the size of Italian cars, then PC Support...

Now I'm retired on health grounds...

This! I wish more guys spent time with their kids, and didn't work away and not be there. Kids don't care about money, they care about time with you. So nice to see a Dad who is with them

I vividly remember camping with my parents as a kid, all of the cool new places we went. I don't remember where a single nick nack came from... Aside from the blown glass animals, those became a yearly tradition when we started camping up near Booth Bay Harbor in Maine..

That pic makes me want to renew the struggle!

I'd just want to struggle with the instructor.

I'm employed by Red Cross, but I also do indie game dev as a hobby with a small group of people (no officially released games though).

I used to work in audit services. Now I'm a writer and mess around making stuff out of leather and textiles. I painted for a while but SL robs me of time I could use to paint. 

So my audit skills help me manage my inventory......a never ending challenge......and my arty side drives my creativity here. ?

So did I, and I didn't realise the mistake until you mentioned it.

I own a business, work with Habitat For Humanity and also run a co-op for small business owners. My RL is very busy and SL is my escape from all the crap I have to deal with in RL.

Office Director; HR, payroll, billing and accounts payable/receivable for an architectural firm.

I have ridiculously long days with a heinous commute back and forth to NYC. Good thing I like my job and the people I work with.
