What did you do before becoming a truck driver?

I graduated high school June 1997... from there, I've worked in nearly every industry available to someone without a college education. From fast food to agricultural to the medical field, construction and factories to call centers... of all the jobs I've had, I hated the call centers the most, but I'm fairly good at sales and tech support so that's what I mostly did. I haven't been able to hold a job for a full 2 years... ever! My best friend pointed out that I should drive for a living since I love being on the road. She meant taxi or courier but that got me thinking. I researched otr and I've never felt excited about working since I got my very first job at 16. I've started driving at school today... I haven't been this excited and happy, and a little scared, about anything since I was pregnant with my, now 12 year old, daughter. I talked to my family and close friends, every one is completely supportive and my daughter is looking forward to next summer when she can go with me on the road during summer vacation... I love being alone in my personal truck on a highway or interstate, with or without tunes... There is some interest from local companies and I've submitted my application to those companies... I'm very excited to start a career that I look forward to doing for the next 40 years
