LOL, when I first read that last sentence I thought you meant Ronduth was your dad, the train driver.

I'm currently an 18 year old, stay-at-home high school graduate living in Chelsea Michigan. I enlisted into the air force and leave for Boot on December 30th of this year. After basic i'll start training to be an Unmanned Aerospace System Sensor Operator, AKA Drone Recon. Once I receive my level 5 certification, I'll be able to learn to pilot the drones.

I work at the world's greatest toy store. I love my job, my coworkers, and what I do (I do everything in this store).

 

I also get to play with toys, like every day!

I am a District Network and IT Administrator for a handful of Charter Schools. I handle all computer and networking for 3 separate charter schools, all under the same management company. I started working for one school back in 2011, and since then the management company has opened two other schools, and I've taken them under my wing. I manage a small team of 2 assistants as well, so that helps me a good bit with the work load (as much as I love unboxing hundreds of computers at a time, i'll leave that to the twerps...)

 

I love every part of my job. I'm my own boss, I get to manage a team, I get to purchase and play with new toys, I choose my own hours, and because I work at schools, any vacation days the kids have off -  I have off, which means I get mandatory 5-6 weeks off of work due to school vacations, plus a week of bad weather/snow days, and 2 weeks of vacation of my choice. On top of that, I still get 5 personal/sick days. You really can't beat that.

On top of that working with kids really helped me work on my professionalism (comical, I know) and team building skills. Being in this field keeps me on my toes with the newest technology which is awesome. And when I see something cool I want to try out, I just have the schools buy it :)

I don't know where I want to end up. I definitely want to expand my knowledge, so I don't see myself staying in the education IT world forever. I'd love to work at google or quicken loans or one of those amazing office spaces. Some place I can be myself and just have fun with what I do. 

 

Here is my most recent big job at the last school. Pretty proud of this one.

Yup. The first picture was what the server room looked like when I took the new job. That's how the last IT guy left it. He worked there for 2 years....

This is pretty typical stuff @Fusion3Gz 

 

A lot of network/sysadmins that are "older" (and I'm not being mean here, it's just the trend), tend to put less effort into network management and wiring than they should. Todays networks are much more robust and thus the effort and time is being taken to organize these systems and make sure their uptake is easier. There is a subreddit for this very purpose you should check out. Some great revamps as well as new work over there @ Cable Porn

Lol, fake ID's are actually hard to come by now these days. (At least from what I know)
Also with the way girls put out up here there is no need for me to go to a strip club lol
