Oh I love the water, too!
Greatly enjoy it, as a matter of fact.
As a patron.

As a lifeguard, the shit you have to put up with is unreal; it's an incredibly stressful job, you have to keep up to date on dozens of certifications, you have to read literally thousands of rules and regulations and you're expected to have perfect memory of all of them, and even in the most ideal of situations a lifeguard can still have things go poorly for them when there are conflicting rules/regulations (what the hell do you do when one rule says to do one thing but a different rule says to do something else?) or they make even the slightest of slip-ups.

Keep in mind also that lifeguards get minimum wage. Mind you, Washington minimal wage in my case (so, basically $12/hour right now), but still minimal wage, and because we're part-time (we're required to work less than 40 hours/week), we don't qualify for benefits. And honestly, the job is immensely taxing with stress levels through the roof; even were you allowed to work 40 hours a week, you'd have to be insane to actually want to. :P

Fatigue, burnout, stress, low pay, high maintenance rate, a million expectations often even conflicting ones, there's a reason lifeguards have a very high turnover rate and is mostly a job filled by people who need to get a job on their resume; it's not a job which is something you can love, in of itself, to be honest.

That having been said, the main reason I'm a lifeguard is because being a lifeguard gives me a sense of giving to the community; I feel like I am getting paid to contribute to the community and make it a better place, by doing what amounts to a paid community service. It may not be much of a contribution, but it's giving something, something which I have the skillsets to give, and yet making some semblance of a living while doing so.

Not many jobs offer me that, and in that sense, I enjoy my work, because I believe in it. Ask me what my job is like outside of work and I'll say it's good; ask me what my job is like while I'm working, and I'll tell you why it's a living hell. :P

I work in a gas station ._.

My passion is writing and the job I think would fit my particular skill set the best is probably some type of psychology field

Sno-isle, by any chance?
I'm not quite sure what you're referring to. Multiple things go by the name Sno-isle referring to education; it's possible one of them was involved in mine?

But, if you mean a school by that name, no, my school was Sky Valley Education Center (back when it was actually a good school; it really was the best of both worlds of homeschooling and public schooling back then). I'm one of the few who remembers its Snohomish location, with the barn. (Though the majority of my education was in the Monroe location in...what's it called? Business district? The location within walking distance of Monroe's YMCA. Where I am now employed. :P)

There was a school by that name with a DigiPen program, yeah. It serviced the Snohomish and Island counties. If you'd gone to it there would've been a decent chance we were classmates, or at least knew some of the same people.

Fun fact, that's actually my brother's job! He's a programmer, got a Masters degree in it even. Makes enough money to be entirely self-sufficient with zero debt.

@Shoshin: I'm curious, do you have any read on what I do?

I'd guess you do something involving writing, but not a lawyer. Maybe journalism. Maybe.


Primarily, I'm a programmer, but my other major was game design, which was a lot of writing, so you're not too far off.

Dam, my first instinct when you asked was programmer but I remembered thinking you wrote like someone who wrote professionally so it felt at odds lol

Probably the problem solving element of the game if I had to guess

In spite of going to different schools, wouldn't surprise me if we knew some of the same people, anyway. :P

I don’t think so. I’d like to see ALL of them get released, particularly scum chat.

I would really like to know why scum specifically targeted me and Saj for redirecting action.
