I think it would be cool to get an extended version of the "Introduce Yourself" thread going, to learn a little more about each other, but on a more "non-Husker" basis. You never know how much you might have in common with someone else, or even when we might be able to help each other out with our various areas of expertise. Networking is a powerful thing. :cheers

 

I'll get one started, and others please feel free to start some other topics in this forum you think would be interesting to learn about your fellow Huskerboard Nmates. Or if you have suggestions for other questions to add to this list, post em up and I'll add em.

 

*Feel free to answer as many or few as you would like.

I live in China (Changsha). Born & raised in Lincoln, college in Oregon and will return to my favorite place of all once I get my wife's green card.....South Dakota (clean, sparse, endless huge lakes and no state income tax).

 

I'm an electronic technician and am now teaching English in China for the last two years. Worst job ever was being a bench technician as it's boring beyond belief after a short while. Field service work is a lot more fun as it's much more varied and independent.

 

The BigRedMachine is my biggest hobby/addiction. It's sooooo wild and random that it's just terrific to watch.

 

ps.....for what it's worth, guys.....if you're tired of fat, obnoxious & spoiled women....oh boy, push the envelop past the USA border and you're in for the treat of your life. No sh*t.

Out of Staters:

Where do you currently live? Auckland, New Zealand

Where have you lived the longest? Probably Lincoln. I don't count my hometown. Had no choice but to grow up in Hebron.

Where has been your favorite place to live/visit? Live? London and Denver...Visit? Riga, Latvia and Berlin

Where is your ideal place to live? On a jet...taking me to every corner of the earth.

 

Work:

What is your current occupation? Going through mountains of immigration paperwork to get my work visa.

What has been your best job ever? Bartender...and Nebraska State Penitentiary. Tough job at times, but worked with some great people.

Worst job? Kawasaki through a temp agency in college. Built shipping crates for the jet skis. They made me go fetch my own wood behind the building out of a huge, unorganized pile that was surrounded by wasps, and most of it was rotted or splintered too badly to use. And they wondered why it was taking me so long to meet quota. Got stung and walked out after 3 days.

Dream job? Travel writer. Or Right Wing for the Colorado Avalanche. DJ in Ibiza. Or if I ever become terminally ill, a NASA space mission where there's no option of returning to earth.

 

Hobbies:

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? Studying maps, travel, online poker, music production with Ableton Pro on the Macbook, sports, saltwater fishing, spending time with the wife, reading about Geography, History, and my guilty pleasure...Janet Evanovich books

Strangest/most interesting hobby, skill or personal anecdote? I love the Andy Griffith Show (but only with Barney) even though it's way before my time, and I once had a 3-person study group in a Sociology class with Bobby Newcombe and Lisa Reitsma. I think we did ok on our project, but I don't remember us studying much.
