"Despite the ongoing misrepresentations, isolationists have never suggested that American citizens should refrain from cultural and commercial intercourse with foreign peoples. Unrestricted trade and travel are two of our most cherished rights.

This is where I spend 40 hours M-F each week, to date. Kevin, Jonathon and
Marc are a few of my co-workers. Kevin is the digital video and 3-D guy. Marc and Jonathon are both becoming invaluable in web graphics and web page creation. I am classified as a multimedia specialist for Multimedia Services, part of Distance Learning and Multimedia Services ...yada,yada,yada ...

I also work part time as a retail sales associate about 20 hours a week. I abuse myself nights/weekends for a $10.75/hour wage, which allows me to buy medical insurance. The dreaded OPS (Other Personnel Services) Multimedia position offers no benefits/time-off. This of course, leaves me very little leisure time. After 3 years of doing this, however, I wouldn't know what to do with leisure time anyway, except sleep.|
