I have been working with computers since the age of 5. My father was an electronics engineer and most of my skills are thanks to his lessons.
I am one of those people that work all day in front of a computer, come home and then spend what's left of the day working in front of a computer. And LOVE every second of it!
There is a time of my life where I spent allot of time in Home and Automative industry. That was mostly because my father was convinced that computers have no more future (boy is he still f**ing wrong!) I spent horrific hours construction houses and apartments, obtaining building and wiring certifications and playing Mr Landlord. The construction market crashed and we moved onto cars. Rebuilding classics and repairing minor accidents.
I took pride in what I did and learnt allot from that experience -Not just in knowledge but self discipline. I did not enjoy it as much as IT though, so I left...
Today I am a Certified Microsoft Profession and a self motivated Electronics Engineer. I still take pride in everything I do and when I build something - I make it last more than a 100 years, just like all the houses I built.
I love my job as a .NET Software Developer and I love the fact that Microsoft is kicking ass with its .NET architecture (Web, Electronics engineering and even Linux! (mono))
My father still believes computers have no future - Even though I am part of building the future of computers right around him.
