I don’t really have an occupation anymore besides watching grandkids once in a while.
I have done a lot of jobs in the past. Built houses when I got out of school working for a contractor for about 3 years. Worked for a tool and die shop as the maintenance man for 4 years till they went out of business. Drove tow truck and dispatched for 14 years. Electrician for IBEW for 11 years. Lots of side jobs like roofs, kitchens, baths, floors. I worked for a detective agency as an investigator and court officer for a few years mostly on weekends serving papers or watching, following cheaters.
I tell my wife that I am a doctor induced drug addict now. An alcoholic nicotine addicted day trader. I retired at the age of 50.
I have had arthritis since I was a child but only diagnosed three years ago.
After two years of try this try that I am now pain free and can move my hands with ease and no pain. Thanks to the drugs.
I don’t consider day trading an occupation since I do it when I want or if something changes in the world to open an opportunity. I might not trade for a week or month then trade everyday for a week or more.
Day trading to me is now and then, here and there, when you want, if you need to be there, as much as you want, too much stress, not enough stress, Great rewards, great losses, every day is different. I would not recommend day trading to anyone but I love the excitement.
My favorite job of all though is the watching GRANDKIDS.
