Don’t jump on me because of the wording.
All I mean is that I find a satisfaction in doing physical stuff. Law, in particular, is so abstract it feels meaningless.
I like the immediacy of lifting a weight, doing a pushup, or whatever.
but drafting a contract, bah…
I would love to just do more of a hardcore job, maybe I just want to be like big ronnie…
I don’t think it has to do with being manly or what not. You probably just don’t enjoy working in the abstract. I’m very much the same. I worked in advertising for years as a media planner/buyer. There isn’t much more abstract than buying space and time. I really hated it. It was always a big 911 emergency over stupid crappola. I was good at it but didn’t feel good about pimping shit that people don’t need.
Now I work in construction as an estimator. I love how concrete it all is. I measure blueprints, give a price and decide on material quantities, types and installations. You can see a physical thing that was built. It’s so manly I think I grew a dick.
If I could do it again, I’d be a cop though.[/quote]
Yeah you would make a good cop. I can totally see that.
I have the nerdist job in the world. I do IT work for the company I work for. So in down time it gives me lots of time for research and reading on training. I also have lots of energy and pent up frustration that gets loose in the gym when I leave work. I like my job and I am good at it.
I could give a fuck less if anyone thinks its T-man enough for anyone else. I have had training partners that are construction workers that can’t keep up with me in the gym. So really there is no such thing as a T-man job. Just STFU and lift your weight and get big. Quit cryen if you don’t like your job and get new one.
