Update from a year ago:

Finished my teacher certification program, passed my exams, and landed my first-ever full time job teaching high school geometry in a Title I (high-poverty) school district in WNY. My commute will be roughly an hour and a half (pushing 2 hours or more once the snow comes), but the technology initiatives, academic programs, and student population should make the long drive completely worth it.

Here's something I bet none of you have done-I just got installed as a sexton. (I mostly I shovel snow and clean the rectory windows.)

What is a sexton?

it's somebody a Anglican priest appoints to take care of the church and the rectory. Traditionally they also took care of the graveyard and the corpses that went into it but since we don't have a graveyard I mostly do stuff like vacuum and shovel and lay ice melt and wash windows etc.

Well done using 'graveyard' correctly (and not 'cemetery'). :clap:

I too have had a job change. I am now the HR Dir for a large waterpark, and I love it. The bad news is it interferes with umpiring (and running the site) as I generally work 6, 12 hr days.

Surprised I never posted here...

I'm a Data Analyst for a world-leading foodservice and support services company. More specifically, I work in the sector dealing with employee break rooms and focus primarily on those that are offered for free to the employee. You've never heard of us, but you've probably been served by us.

My nose is buried in Excel, Power BI, and various coding software all day. Been doing it for a year now and love it. A lot of my work is based around innovative changes, whether technical (new programs and reports) or physical (new products and experiences), so I spend a lot of time scoping out those ideas rather than answering questions from bosses.

Before that, I was a Performance Analyst for an asset consulting firm for a few years. Prior to that, I worked in Surveillance at casinos for over 10 years.
