I am 28, I have been working part time jobs since I was 13.  In that time I have had almost 30 part time jobs and one full time career job: high school history teacher. 
I am now a stay at home dad and decorator/twister and have never been happier!

I am a customer rep for Verizon wireless, wo when you're angry about your service chances of me being the one you call to yell at are fairly significant. I do that on third shift,  on second shift I deliver pizzas on the local army base. I'm also a reservist in the united states army, oh, and I go to school 3 days a week.... I tend to work at least one party a month twisting and doing magic. It's a pretty vicious cycle, but cash is king.... There's only one thing better than money.










That's more money:)

I'm an eighth grade student and a speller (I have participated in the National Spelling Bee twice already and am coming back for my 3rd year in June).
Before balloon art, I was a bored ten-year-old.

Don't worry, I won't.  Grin Each year we have to fill a profile out, and each year the first thing that I put in is that my favorite hobby is balloon twisting.

I was a high school business/computer teacher, then a stay at home mom who taught part time at the local university- now I'm a stay at home mom that does weird things to ballons - according to my 7 year old.

I have been a receptionist, and now I'm going back to work for a company that does merchandising 'resets' at grocery stores.  We do cosmetic resets, frozen food resets and pet food resets.  It's a cool job with flexible hours.  The pay is decent and I really like the team I work with.  I'm leaving the receptionist job because it's just not a good fit. 

I always tease and tell people that when I twist balloons I become addicted to that instant feedback and praise.  No one has ever said "WOW!  I love the way you transfer calls!  And the way you file those documents is crazy- I've never seen anyone do it like that before!"  I think it gets my point across and people see how much I really do love my job.  And hopefully I make them a little jealous.

very good point Looney - the instant feed back is highly addictive - you never get that kind of feed back in any other job - well not instant anyway - My full time job gives me plenty of positive feedback and that's one of the reasons I love it - but it's not usually instant like it is with balloons
