I kind of just fell into this type of work.
Throughout my 20's I was a professional musician, I love it but got really tired of truly being a starving musician. :(
I would think a degree in Engineering Physics (I'm guessing that's Mechanical Engineering) would do well in Denver, if not look around Orange County, CA, there are all kinds of tech firms around here.

Yeah I can only imagine.... :|


Between the usual "summer slump" from mid-May through September and the fact that everyone seems to be worried about their financial future, let's just say that this is not the time anyone wants to consider opening a retail outlet. At least, not if they don't want to be stressed constantly and pulling their hair out by the roots!

Glad to hear it, Seasiren! As much as I'd thought that most Realtors would be in more of a bind these days, those I've come in contact with recently have been saying that they're still faring well despite the goofy home market situation.
