    I'm still unemployed and will continue being so until I finish my college degree five years from now. I'm not considering Hubpages because I don't get money off of it yet (nor do I actively try to). I'm also not considering my freelance work as a translator because it's really light weight in my routine. It barely feels like working and it doesn't legally count like it where I live. If you wanna know, though, I started translating stuff online in August 2010, when I was 16 years old (lying about my age, then -.-' )

    I was fourteen, and I was a paperboy. Bicycle, bag, throwing the rolled up papers, the crash of the storm door as the hurled object hits the sheet metal!

    I had 1/2 days my senior year in High School and graduated early in January. By March of that same year, I had my first job at 18. It was working at a chain grocery store. I worked in the video department, which also handled express lane cashier duties (right across from the liquor department), lottery ticket sales, and we developed photos.

    Like Druid, I started at 14 with a bicycle, bags and a paper route.

    Graduated to farm labor as soon as I could drive out of town, followed by a plethora of odd jobs during the college years.  Gas station attendant, tire store, computer programmer, fighting forest fires, surveying, janitor, short order cook, construction labor - all kinds of odd things.

    First "real" job at 22, after college, that lasted 22 years.
