yeap

EDIT
The question is what are you trying to determine?

Can there be long hours? Yes, but then there are times when your in a holding pattern and the workload is light.

How is the pay? Outside of a few other jobs and even in this economy show me another place I can make $180k, year with no stress or trying to run my own business.

What else you want to know?

I ask this because I'm planning on starting college next year (I say that every year) and haven't really figured out what I want to do in the long run as a career. Kind of bummed about since I'm 19 and need to make a decision.

That's a philosophical - mental health question.

Do you work for a company who sees potential in you? are you happy with your life choices? What personality type are you? Are you a listener or a talker? Do you messure your success by the faults of others. Are people inherently good or bad?

Good attitude attracts good aptitude. (Just made that up)

I thought I was the only one who felt Camaros look like cat fish lol. Looks like I'm not alone.

@ bratas

If I were to get into IT, what OS? Windows, Linux, or a bit of both? What do you work with?

for OS - IOS and Junos are the primary ones I work with. OS's as far as servers and workstations. Well the major ones are XP Win7 which is on my local workstation, I haven't touched Servers in about 12 years, that is Systems Engineering not Network/Security Engineering.

Yes. I love my job.

What I don't like is time going by too quick. I've already been at this job for 5 months now
