Well on my own i have been cutting lawns in the summer since like 8th grade. So i do that an small landscaping jobs. And then for like two years ive been doing other odd jobs. And just recently i started doing a little bit of HVAC work with my dad. He knows alot about all trades basically, so i have always been doing random side jobs with him for as long as i can remember lol. But right now we have alot more of that work because of the storm.

That's what I figured, my dad can build a house single handily and had a handy man business while I was a kid I worked with him and have learned allot so I was working on becoming a contractor before all this good news.

Rustoleum hammered brush on paint. Kinda wish I would have done black instead. Oh well, it needs some touch up already, and it's bound to get ****ed up soon enough. Next up: tie ins.

Thats cool. My dad was a mechanical contractor, which is like the same kinda thing. He gave up his business to join the police force when i came along. I always really liked doing stuff like that but cant decide if its something i want to do for the rest of my life.

Drove 70 miles with the battery light on, not sure if the alt is charging or not. Decided to park it for a few days any do some maintenance and drive my Toyota.

Well since we were talking about jobs i found this to be fitting. Oddly enough maybe 30 minutes after my last post i found out that i will FINALLY be starting doing HVAC work for my dads friend who owns his own business. Still doing everything else, but this is alot more steady and could very well lead somewhere. Im going tomorrow so he can show me around the current site and talk about what he wants me to do. Pretty excited! More jeep money!

I've never seen it written anywhere that once you start an occupation that's what you have to do for life .
We only get one shot at this thing we call life . Do what makes you happy and when that doesn't anymore fine what does and do that .
It makes you a lot easier to live with . And when it's all over , you can leave with a smile .

Very good advice, i appreciate it. I worded that the wrong way i think though. I do enjoy that type of work alot, however im unsure if i want to continue to do it as a job in the long run. I will always do hands on work of whatever type( its in my blood lol), but im just not sure if i will be happy HAVING to do it. And also i would like to stick to one trade professionally in the future. Which is why i am excited about my very recently acquired job.

You bet! And thank you. I also painted the speaker grills. Still not sure how i feel about it. I wanted to paint the bottom carpet black with the duplicolor vinyl/fabric which works awesome. I still may. And since the armrest and window cranks are a different color gray i may have to paint them down the road. It gets dirty fast too.
