There are more of us then you think!  ;D It isn't something I usually divulge though, I get a lot of blank stares followed by excuses to walk away.  It isn't all that bad... you draw intersecting circles for all the sciences and the stuff I do falls into the little tiny area where they all intersect.

Yikes! That wasn't long after punch cards ruled the day!!   ;) I can't really talk, I was playing with a computer not long after, although I left the programming to my brother for years. He is still better at it, but then again he also used to be one of the many computer oriented people in silicon valley.

She actually misses the classroom terribly, but at this point my father and I just want her to stick with the admin. stuff.  She's taught for 30+ years and it's time for her to get ready for retirement, so this is better... of course, she missed "her kids."  How cute is that?!

Last week, I finished my dissertation, and it (http://www.unc.edu/~echoate/dissertation.pdf) should have more details.  Basically, the (nematic) liquid crystal part means that a substance is made of a bunch of rod-shaped molecules (disolved in something like water) that have no positional ordering and so they are free to flow like a liquid.  However, these molecules do have an orientational ordering where they're roughly all pointing in the same direction as their neighbos.  You can control this orientation with a magnetic field.  This is how a liquid-crystal display works; orient them in one direction and light passes through, but orient them in a different direction and light can't pass through.  Instead of a magnetic field, however, I study the properties of flows of these liquid crystals.  That's the rheology part, the study of flowing things, the measurement and prediction of viscosity, and stuff like that.

Unfortunately, college writing teachers have been in the news for all the wrong reasons this week.  Do you think there will be efforts to turn writing classes into a systematic tool to identify potentially "troubled" students?

Writing teachers at all levels have been identifying troubled students for years.  Getting something done about it is the messy part. Man, could I tell you stories about young people in my writing classes.  If I think about it, I get depressed.  Countless times I have sat down with mental health professionals and brought my concerns over this one or that one to their attention.  Since it was only words on paper at that point,  no action could be taken. There are 5 or more names that stick in my mind, names that I feel will be a tragic headline or obit.  God help us all.

Thanks.  Actually, my defense was back on Good Friday.  Last week I got the margins, linespacing, etc., finished and turned in all the proper forms.  It's really nice to be done, but it was sort of anticlimactic.  A couple of months ago, I had this firm date April 13, 4:00 pm EDT, when everything's got to be done.  But then as I started marking the days off on the calendar, I realized, oh, I've got to defend a week before that.  And then I've got to get my dissertation to my committee a week before that.  Thus, about three weeks before the deadline, I looked up and said, hm, I'm basically all done.  That's odd.

When I finished graduate school I didn't know what to do with myself.  In school, I was so busy reading and writing that I forgot what a hobby was. I didn't read a book for strict pleasure the entire two years I was in school. I sat down on my couch and thought, "What is it that people do with their time?" It was scary to have a little freedom, but then I realized I finally had time to read The Lord of the Rings and I felt better.

yoikes -- i can't imagine having to evaluate my students' mental and emotional states on that kind of level based on what they write for me... i would hope colleges would understand that it's going to take a lot more than scrutinizing student writing to find the kids with real issues -- one piece (or even a series) of dark and violent and disturbed writing does not a psycho-killer make.

thanks for that link.  i was wondering if he'd show up to comment on this issue at all -- or any number of other professional horror/gore/fright writers.

what this whole situation shows us is how nigh impossible it is to do anything about a college student in these matters -- systems aren't in place that allow key people to talk to one another about this (cops -- local and campus; parents; teachers; RAs; school and other mental health personnel), and we cannot force an "adult" to go to counseling or take any other action if we think something is wrong.

i certainly don't want any one of those groups of people to have the ability individually to get a student committed, and i have issues with the idea of some huge database on everyone, noting each of their potentially "unsettling" moments -- but as a community, i wish there were more options for working with/for students like cho.

for instance, there's all this debate about whether or not cho's record of mental issues should have disqualified him from being able to obtaining a gun.  there's a discrepancy between how the state views his record, and how the feds do, and how each might have handled his wanting top buy guns -- and it sounds like there's no communication between the two levels.

I do data entry. I get stuff from random companies I have no stake in and input their data into our database. I'm really not sure why but I don't really care. As long as I keep my health insurance and a steady check, I'm kosher as christmas.

I just graduated in June, and I'm already working at the school. I actually have Chris's former job, I'm the technical coordinator for the film school. It's resume-speak for checking equipment out for student productions and maintaining things as they get weathered/broken. It's actually a pretty good setup. Steady pay, I get to moonlight as a projectionist and on other paying productions in the area, and I still get to see most all of the people I hung out with during school. It's only for the next year or so before I move on to greener pastures, but it's nice to have something uncomplicated right now.

I have started a new job yesterday - I'm actually teaching English. Well, it would be more accurate to say that I supervise a group of people who are learning English with a computer program. I do conversation practice with each one of the participants every day, and I also have to set them tests. It is so weird to speak English for eight hours a day all of a sudden. Something I am really grateful for is that they are all adults, and genuinely want to improve their English.

Formerly crime scene technician, formerly technical writer/software trainer, formerly PhD grad student in history.  Oh yeah, and formerly phone sex operator...helped pay the bills in grad school.  I called it "fantasy consultant" on my taxes that year.

But "job"?  Jobs are for people who get paid.

Having known a couple of people that use to test games, it didn't sound like a good career.  Badly paid and treated, mostly contract work and had high turn over.  I know ERP probably is tedious, I do a lot of testing of the sales tools when ever we roll out new functions or change process.

I got laid off this morning.

I've had a pretty amazing life since meeting Carrie.  It's been nothing but good luck and great times.  Sooner or later something was gonna kick me in the ass.

I think Carrie is my good luck charm, because it's only two weeks later and I've got another job (my last job search took 6 months).  A guy I worked for at a previous gig is now the CIO of this big direct marketing company.  He's already hired three other guys from the old place, and when he found out I was looking he offered me a job.  So I met with them all this morning and overall it seems like a good situation.  The job is Data Processor, but it does involve some programming which is what I've been doing for the past 15 years.  So it's a little bit of a pay cut for me but there may be some room for growth.  At any rate, I think the job is a good match for my skills and my work style.  And it's really nice to work with people you already know you can get along with.

I work as a pastor among the homeless and mentally ill.  And I write.  Not for anyone in particular, mind you, but I do post blogs.  A lot.  And I run and live in a community house.  And I organize meals, and stuff.  You get the idea.

But "job"?  Jobs are for people who get paid.

So about four years ago I became manager of a three acre property on which our homeless church and three other churches meet.  I just quit that job.  Now I'm working half time, seeing if I can actually make a little bit of money writing, instead of just doing it all for free.  I have my doubts.

Will you still be in charge of the gardens? Or, will you work there on occasion? You're very good at it. :)

I've learned to love the gardens, but really it's my co-pastor Jeff who's really good at them.

i run a sales operations team for Asia Pacific, basically, forecast sales revenue, sales reporting, sales training on sales tools, and sales compensation.  i do a lot of shit involving sales other than actually doing sales.

Just saw this old thread so thought I would look back. Soon after this, I moved out of management to represent the region on a few major business transformation projects for Asia. That sort of removed me from a role, so I moved to UK to do that same as their schedule was 1 year later. Then about 9 months of unemployment.

Then back to managing a Sales & Marketing Operations team for APJ (Asia Pacific minus China) in a different company in a different market. Similar to early roll but in a much different field.

I'm pretty sure this was a Cecil the Lion joke.

I've moved from paralegal student to paralegal. Thus far my noble ambitious of helping poor people with my skills is not in effect. I'm still on the side of the relatively little guy in that we frequently are suing huge corporate builders, but our clients are associations of people who often own quite nice homes, which makes them on the upper half at least. It is more lucrative to get me economically stabilized a bit after a spell of underemployment and gets me experience so the move to more public service type work could still come.

I got laid off this morning.

I've had a pretty amazing life since meeting Carrie.  It's been nothing but good luck and great times.  Sooner or later something was gonna kick me in the ass.

I think Carrie is my good luck charm, because it's only two weeks later and I've got another job (my last job search took 6 months).  A guy I worked for at a previous gig is now the CIO of this big direct marketing company.  He's already hired three other guys from the old place, and when he found out I was looking he offered me a job.  So I met with them all this morning and overall it seems like a good situation.  The job is Data Processor, but it does involve some programming which is what I've been doing for the past 15 years.  So it's a little bit of a pay cut for me but there may be some room for growth.  At any rate, I think the job is a good match for my skills and my work style.  And it's really nice to work with people you already know you can get along with.

Hah, it's funny to look back at this post. That job was absolutely horrible, total shitshow. I was there six months and now I'm a programmer at the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (not coincidentally, working with two of the other people from the old job who followed the CIO to the marketing company and then bailed). Been here nearly three years now and you couldn't drag me away. I'd always wanted to work in government, with the benefits, job security, and a feeling that I'm contributing something to society. It's not a perfect job (everything you hear about government inefficiency is true) but I'm super comfortable here. This is the job I intend to retire on.

Glad you're loving the new(ish) job, Martin!

Benefits and job security are completely foreign to me. I just wrapped a new Netflix docu-series called JAILBIRDS. It turned out really well. Won't be streaming until next summer. About to start another Netflix doc called DIAGNOSIS, based on the New York Times column. I hear the office is intense, but it's with some people I really enjoy working with.

A lot has happened in the last three years.  I un-quit.  Then I got forced out of the city I worked for 20 years.  Then I was threatened by the city of Portland this year.  Advocating for the homeless can be fun.

I am a month and a half away from moving to Eugene, Oregon, where I am pastoring a small but very community-active church there.  I am still serving houseless folks, but in a much more quiet way.  I'm biding my time.

Sandy, the property I was working on got sold and the new church tore all the gardens up, including all the fruit and memorial trees we planted.

It's so great that people are doing things they love, even if it isn't exactly perfect.  I'm especially overjoyed for Martin.

Got a new job near the end of October working as an advisor for career/technical degrees at a two year college. It's a nice change of pace from the old job which was becoming insufferable in that last year with lots of arguments with my boss about the ethics of certain situations and managing tons of people without getting recognized or paid as a supervisor.

That’s great news, Sam!

Sandy, the property I was working on got sold and the new church tore all the gardens up, including all the fruit and memorial trees we planted.

I’m sad about their decision to do so. It was a wonderful use of the space and provided a sense of accomplishment for those who worked in the gardens, let alone good nutrition!

Keep us posted on your new projects, please.

Well, I resigned from the job above and have my exit interview tomorrow for a plethora of reasons I'd rather not get into.

As for the future, I'm studying for the COMPTIA A+ Certification and am looking into other certs to pick up in the future as I've always liked working with computers and I think it's time for a career change where I can actually make a decent living.

Feel pretty good about this change. The job felt like a final sign that education is not the place for me right now. Maybe down the line I could land a gig teaching, but right now I'm ready for something new.

Sounds like a positive move then, Sam.
