I'm a graphic designer with my BFA from Michigan State who is now a kitchen designer for Home Depot. It blows working for a "big box" company, but it's a cool gig. Need to get into a smaller company though, more money and freedoms there. Either that or back into graphics which is why I moved out here.

Two pieces, including one titled: "Traverse/Wolfpack Hustle" will be on view next month at LACC.
Now that I think about it, I spent a lot of time at my last job on this site too. But that's not the reason I am not working there now.

I just went by to check it out.

It's a giant warehouse.
Fence is down, doors are open. Easy to get in.
Of course that means others have already been there.
All the walls inside/out are covered with graffiti.
I saw four hobos in there. They seemed quite enegetic.
Two of them were stripping the pipes off for the scrap metal.
They were not aggressive or territorial.

There were paddles on the floor from the recent rain.
It's worth a look but it's definitely more edgy/urban than romantic.

@ meandmybluebike....

you can call the vietnamese line and play dumb (oh sorry oopps) they will transfer you, you'll get through.
1.800.547.2058
-or-

If you hear "thank you for calling the edd"-hang up

If you hear "welcome to the edd" ...to short cut the menu it is 1.2.1.1.7

It usually takes about 15 tries, but you will get through. You just have to dedicate a half hour of speed dialing.

Good LUCK !!!!!

@Lizard Queen:

THANK YOU! IT WORKED!
it worked the very first time, but a recording in vietnamese plays first. i pressed one during the recording so i don't know if that immediately got me through, or it just automatically transfers to an operator.

Thank you very much. now i can get some new underwear and a bar of soap.

I love my job.

I'm and editor/writer covering the US and Latin America for the wind energy industry's main trade magazine (Windpower Monthly). The company is based in Denmark and I work remotely from home here on the West side. Plus side to that is no commute, and mostly on my schedule, but I miss office life sometimes. Also nice is the 6 weeks paid vacation, per mandated by Denmark law.

But the best part is that I found something using my skills/training (journalism) in a field that's very interesting, on the up and up, and does well while doing well. Clean energy has become big business and wind is the most efficient, most successful of them all. It's a very exciting time to be in this field.

Free is the best flavor, the best word, the best idea. I get nothing for free at work. no water cooler, no coffee, nothing. I file half the day, and other half I spend on Midnight Ridazz.com. Well, I sorta have free time. I guess that's something for free. But, I'm still confined to the office, which is a giant converted warehouse with endless rows of cubicles. It's like the Matrix where Neo works. Just identical, cookie cutter cubicles filled with boring, mindless automatons. I am glad that I'm employed and compensated well with good benefits. Like anything in life, it's what you make of it, and how you choose to look at things. God, I'm bored, even with my iPod playing nine hours a day. I can't wait for the weekend. Is it 4:20 yet? I finish work at 4:30.

I work as a consultant for an environmental non-profit (Conservation International). I spend most of the day working on computer models to predict the effects of climate change on biodiversity. So I guess that makes me some kind of scientist. Since most of the people I work with are in Santa Barbara, I'll usually spend a couple days each week up there. It would be a sucky commute if I was driving, but fortunately, I can just ride down to Union Station, throw my bike on the train and go. Suckas on the freeway got no idea, I tell ya. When I'm in LA, I work from home, which I have become convinced is a great way to slowly drive yourself nuts. But I still prefer that to living in Santa Barbara. That place is pretty, but (to me, at least) it's unbelievably boring.

For the summer, I'm technically working for UCSB (health insurance = yes!), but doing pretty much the same thing as ever. In a previous life, I worked (indirectly) for NASA. It wasn't really for me, but my signature is now on Mars, my illegible scrawl immortalized in some microscopic etching alongside a thousand others. That's gotta be worth something.
