Currently a middle school drama teacher...
I wouldn't think middle schoolers would need to be taught drama - they are so full of it.

I have been a ham radio operator since I was 16. Although I believe I am doing the work I was born to do, with hobbies such as ham radio and astronomy, I wonder whether I should have been an engineer. My father was a physician, and at the end of his career, he said that he should have been an engineer.

I've always enjoyed science and nature and delving into the mysteries of the universe. Loved reading popular science books by Isaac Asimov.
Chaoscosmos, I have always loved Asimov's writing, in particular, his Foundation Trilogy (one of the scifi classics). I also have loved Arthur C. Clarke and got to meet him in college (to this day, a real thrill for me to have gotten to do that).

So I used my GI bill, moved to Austin and got a degree in Geology. It has a lot of the same "feel" that astronomy does, being so intimately involved with deep time and evolutionary origins. I spent many years working on Yucca Mountain in Nevada, investigating the place for nuclear waste storage. It would have been interesting seeing some of the spent fuel rods from my old submarine making their way down into the tunnels. Since then I've investigated energy storage in Iowa, aquifer geometry in Death Valley, and currently I'm working on establishing a new gold mine near Eureka, NV. I doubt that I'd be much good doing anything else. But I like what I do, so I'm fine with it.

I spend my days coming up with things for players to hit with virtual swords and spells.

...what I really want is... always clear nights and needing no sleep so I can enjoy the days too!
