    OT: What jobs NOT in tech industry so you can write music?

    Ok, soooo...i am SICK of technobableheads, the associated liberal arts ignorance, and want another day job.

    What jobs are out there that will:
    • Give a comfortable living
    • A quiet country life
    • Plenty of time for writing music and gardening
    • Time for tea in the afternoon
    • No stress

    You could be one of those house sitters . . . you go across the country taking care of people's pets and homes for free . . . in return, they let you live in their house while they are gone!

    Hey, it worked for some people I know!!

    My grandparents own a small buisness and they have a great life out here in the country. The only thing is they don't have quite as much free time you mention.

    There's also the option of working at a stupermarket in the country and then you'll have plenty of free time!

    For some reason, a lot of my immigrant great grandparents and great great grandparents would open up their own shops . . . too bad I wasn't born when they died to get some of their profits . . .

    er ...... thats my life actually.Except the comfortable living part. I make my living solely from music(If you can call it a living).Bits of teaching,writing,producing CD's,small publishing deal in Japan, gigging,occasional sessions for some local TV writers.
    I have spent the last 6 out of 8 winters in Brasil or Costa Rica.Apart from the cost of the flight,it costs the same to live there as it does in the dark cold power-hungry British Winter.Sometimes accomadation is a hammock tied to a tree on a beach,but for me that is the best hotel you could ever stay in.
    If you can handle the total lack of security,more or less penury,and never being sure what you are doing from 1 day to the next,....I recomend it.
    regards
    ps my wife does the gardening,I smell the flowers and eat the potatoes.....

    I love gardening . . . as long as I get to sit back watching some else do the dirty work, and all I have to do is look at the pretty flowers.
