I'm a chef in the Philadelphia area. I majored in physics during college, but dropped out early in my senior year to work in a friend's restaurant. The pay is pretty low, but I don't regret the change.
I can't stand any kind of work that doesn't involve some sort of creation. I would never be a manager or a lawyer, because, at the end of their workdays, they don't have anything that they've actually made. At least I can say that I've made something that wasn't there before me.
Expect me to contribute heavily to game topics, since that's a side interest of mine.
