The best part about working for OP: Wealth of knowledge to learn and contribute
Something you don’t know about me: English is actually my second language as I came to America (Salinas, CA) from the Philippines when I was 8 years old

If I could have any job in the world (besides the one I have now), I would: Travel around the country and watch ball games (baseball, football and basketball) and summarize experience (blog) with respect to fans, tailgating, food and beverage, etc…

Have Something To Say ?

    Jessie, I would so love to have your dream job myself! Have made a fairly good start on the goal of visiting baseball parks, but haven’t done any blogging about it. I guess my ideal job would be just getting to go and NOT having to do anything else but enjoy the experience. Too much to ask for? 🙂

    I think Christy and I need a road trip starting next spring. Wouldn’t that just be the best “job” one could have!
