Satisfaction

You can call me biased if you want, because God knows Im racist and overly opinionated as it is. But I firmly believe there is no better feeling than to have an occupation, career or even just a hobby that requires physical exertion. Its a major grind while your doing it, and theres been many times when I've just wanted to walka way from it. If you can attack it with a steel resolve though, I dont think there is a better feeling to be taken from anything out there. To see something youve put your brain, heart, and back into to accomplish take shape and be finished, just gives me such a feeling of pride.


I have tons of respect for people who work desk and office jobs. If for no other reason than I couldnt do it. But I just finished working a very physically and mentally taxing 50 hour week, not to mention the 5 hours I'll be putting in tomorrow. And Im exhausted, kinda grumpy, and sore. And I wouldnt trade it for anything.


You have no idea how much better beer tastes after youve been working in the sun for 10 hours and your so thirsty youd drink a rabid dogs piss. Sitting down isnt a requirement but a blessing. Throwing jokes around with co-workers gets even funnier when theres no asshole boss telling you to shut the fuck up and get back to work... even if that asshole boss is me.


I wont get into more detail than that. But I send and open invitation to anyone who doesnt currently work a construction or trade related job to come to work for one day with me and work beside me. And if at the end of that day you can look me in the eye and tell me you feel no sense of achievement, then Ill concede maybe Im wrong.


Ill end this with some pictures of just a couple of the sites I have helped put together in the last couple years. I plan on taking pictures from now until I stop working of all my sites. And so:
