You'll make many choices in your life, many small ones and some momentous ones. Some few pivotal Choices that seem insignificant at the time. My freshman year in college I had work/study. Different areas of the campus had different jobs. Maintenance, security, library, computer labs, cafeteria, res life, etc. I procrastinate, so there were 2 job placement areas left to fill for me...

When I left school (which feels like it's centuries ago), we still had compulsory military service in Germany. However, you could choose at this time to do military service or alternatively do community service. Never being a big fan of the military, I chose the latter and got assigned to a retirement home where I spend the following 13 months as a care-giver for mostly bedridden seniors. It was tough, I grant, but it was also one of the best years of my whole life working there, because not only my colleagues where great but also the work with the elderly people was really fun. Hard, exhausting (physically and mentally) but on the other side very rewarding and satisfying. Not only did this experience change my view onto life and on what is really important, it also left me til today with deep respect and appreciation for people who do jobs like this for their whole life. I think everybody should at least spend a few month doing something similar after school or college, just to get real a little bit.

@missy @rambo @lyxzen Not a home work, but I liked the idea of it. A picture of you from every decade you've been alive. I'll start off with the 70's, just because I think the pic is cute, of me and my little sister. That was my brace to correct scoliosis, that I had to wear as a kid.

I've done this far too many times in life.

Does anyone out there (from a country other than America) want to do a coin exchange? Nothing expensive, just pull a coin from your country out of pocket change and mail one to each other? Let me know, but the coin should at least say the country of origin on it, so I know where it's from.

Sounds like a deal @nebula !  How shall we get it done?

Shoot me a PM with your info and I can get them sent out in the next day or so ☺ I have an overabundance of stamps so don't worry about postage or anything

This weeks homework is so easy, I'm not even tagging anyone in it. I don't stream shows at all. I will occasionally watch Big Bang Theory on tv. Sometimes I watch the History channel. I'll watch NFL games and tennis if they're on a channel we have.

@karnov I'm in New England, so it's the Patriots.  Unlike most of the fans today though, I've followed them since the 70's.

 Flutie's drop kick was pretty sweet.

@rambo @missy @lyxzen The best day of my life so far, would unquestionably be the day I finished pledging for my fraternity.

The feelings of accomplishment and relief were beyond anything that I had felt before, or since.

I'm not married and have never had kids, so the last 27 years of my life has been dedicated to my brotherhood, both at the chapter
