I'm a musician and recording artist. I was a sculpture assistant for about 5 years before making the move into full on musicianship. It is the most rewarding job in the world although it is hard to make a huge amount of money unless you sell your soul.

I wouldn't say lorry drivers are lowly.. A study I saw years ago (can't remember where) stated people who do driving jobs, are some of the most intelligent people..
Some of the reasons for this was the brain has been trained for memory, (remembering roads, especially which roads trucks can use etc) recognition, (because drivers usually use landmarks to memorize different routes) also their brains are always alert and active (as opposed to a mind numbing office job) there were many more which I can't remember just now, I'll add them if I do.
(there was something about a-z reading aswell, but with modern technology, such as sat nav's i don't think that really applies these days)

Carpenter of twenty five years and an x- Scuba Diving Instructor. I enjoy them both, however neither one seems to be too recession proof these days so work is slow

I forgot to mention that my significant other makes a living by teaching people to fly, and bend reality. While he's asleep, I mean. Somethimes one's job is not one's "mission"

I am the general manager for a satellite installation company. I got into satellites when I was 19 and never quit. Now I am a office jockey. At least it pays enough so my wife can stay home with the kids and I can frequent ats.
