I work at a salmon hatchery. It's seasonal right now, so I have December through most of March off work. That would be great if I made more while I was working. It may turn into a year-round thing soon, but I'm also looking at more lucrative gigs in the major local industry, crude oil transport.

What I hate about it most is being fairly poor (though that would be helped greatly if it was year-round), and that it's often so physical that I don't have any energy after work to go do anything fun. What I love about it is that it's largely project oriented, has both outdoor and laboratory components, is much more interesting than an office job, and I work with mostly really good people. Also, being able to go out at lunch and sit by the bay and watch sea lions, otters, eagles, bears, and so on is pretty darn cool.
