What do you do for a living? (Or Hobby)

  1. 4 months ago

    Going off the success of the selfie thread, I was thinking of starting a new thread focusing on what the players of CraftyMynes do for work or hobby.

    Feel free to post what you do, stories and pictures.

    I'll start!

    For the last 3 years I have been working as a marine mechanic/electrician/shipwright in the recreational sector. Before that I owned my own aerial photography business, and before that I did wine cellar and cabinet assembly work. This summer I just got hired as commercial marine electrician. I mainly work on commercial fishing vessels, however, I also do some tug boat and passenger vessel work.

    I do anything from changing light bulbs to rewiring entire boats and everything in-between. The main reason I was hired was for my computer skills. (Mainly linux/low level communications) I do quite a bit of installing fish net monitoring systems and other sensors/devices.

    The type of boats I work on are mostly commerical fishing vessels like these:

    But I also work on boats like this one:

    A lot of the time I'm working in a dirty hole like this:

    On shotty wiring like this:

    To turn it into somthing like this:

    Some of the other systems I work on can cost upwards of $100k dollars just for the base configuration.

    Inside this cabinet is about $50k and outside is another $50k of sensors.

    I look forward to hearing about what everyone does out side of minecraft either in their spare time or for a living.

  2. Since my laptop broke, I'm no longer able to play games such as Minecraft until I can get a new laptop, but my mom gave me her old chromebook until then so I've been writing stories. I've written 6 stories so far that are about 3-6 pages in length and I really enjoy the work that goes into it. Today I'm going to be working on a 7th story so hopefully I can get through it all. I also draw, one of the only reasons I have my school folders is because I carried notebook paper for scraps. Doodling out weird monsters or characters from my stories is a blast for me.

  3. I am in Rotc, i count this as a hobby because it's a class in school that does community service and a lot of time goes into it, specifically I'm in AFJROTC

  9. Welp I'm still in full time education (tho i am looking fir a job) studying maths, chemistry and biology with tbe hope of going to uni to study forensic investigations.

    Haven't really got any cool hobbies I'm basically eitber reading or playing video games....more game now a high key Tales of Symohonia addiction ha ....i need help.

  10. I'm im full time education too, studying languages, one of my greatest passions. I currently study sevem languages and can speak fluently at least five of them: English, Italian, Chinese, Spanish, Swedish, Hebrew and German... also Latin but I don't know if that counts, and that's what I do mainly in my school time.
    But when I'm not studying some strange ancient language and alphabet I have a few other hobbies and jobs.
    My other great passion is basketbal; I've been an All-Star (best 25 players I think) , all-italian player (minors National team... even if I didn't play a lot I usually played like 10/15 minutes, also we weren't as good as other countries so :P) I played for Armani Jeans olimpia Milano one year and before this summer I was 42nd in the top 50 players power ranking, currently playing in serie D for ASD Vismara at 15 years old my dream is to study abroad at UCLA/ University of Kentucky and make it to the NBA one day.
    I spend most of my free time in the gym and playing 1v1 with random opponents.
    I'm also a referee and when I'm not playing I'm refereeing a basketball match or video gaming.
    Sometimes in summer I work as a volonteer.
    So yea that's what I do

  11. I'm still in high school. I can draw decently, I've gotten a lot better since last time I showed anything on the forums. Besides that, for a career I've been leaning towards metallurgy and have been studying some chemistry. With that I've also taken an interest in knives, but mostly because of the chemistry of the steels and etc. I've also started to take basic steps into making knives and other bladed things. Other than that I can animate (pretty badly), Play the piano and swim competitively.
