50 years in transportation, and I loved every minute of it. Were I to change, I would've become an architect

My work location was the whole world.

For one thing I worked on the Scatter Radio in Vietnam.

Another thing was the Hanford Reservation in Washington.

In my previous life (pre-retirement), I was a teacher. No, I wouldn't have changed my career--just might have started earlier. I loved teaching--until the politics became overwhelming.

Now, I take classes--dance classes, music appreciation and the like. Completely enjoy them. I love retirement--drink coffee, and money shows up. Magic!

While I have had a fantastic career in transportation, and would have enjoyed a career in Architecture, I think in today's political environment I would have thoroughly enjoyed a career as a Professor of Political Science.I do so love to good debate.

Retired now after over 40 years Nursing.

It’s what wanted to do since I was a small girl.

But if I had to choose a second career it would be Forensics.

I stick framed houses, cutting and building roofs, cutting stairs and layout were my favorite things.
Now, if I was starting as an apprentice I would pick furniture and cabinet building, custom work. The only thing that would deter me is if it was non-union, which it would likely be - non-union. Some cabinet shops are union shops.
