I worked doing set construction for a college theater. We built platforms, put up walls, painted, hung doors, stripped wires, changed plugs, did lighting, put down flooring, etc. It was awesome and a great learning experience.
Learning new skills everyday.
I liked being able to work with my hands and seeing results of my work. As well as getting a work out at work.
I always enjoyed getting in a full day of work, but it was never something I planned to stick with forever.
