I ended up with Clergy:

You are a spiritual person and you are drawn to peace and simplicity in your life. You enjoy reading and writing, spending the bulk of your time in quiet contemplation of creation. The life of a clergy member is a relatively safe and lucrative pursuit in Medieval times and you hold great power in your community. You are drawn to helping and saving as many souls as you can in this life.

That makes some sense for me since I guess I do consider myself a strong spiritual person, always seeking, and obviously enjoy writing, which would have been a primary function of a clergyman, and I also enjoy foreign language study. Since they didn’t have computers back then or stock trading, I guess clergy would be a logical path for me at that time.

My life has been pretty simple. I grew up in Alabama and graduated from the University of Alabama with a Bachelor's in Advertising. I have spent about the last ten years in web development. In 1998, a friend of mine and I started a web design company we ran for three or four years before deciding to close it due to the demands of school. Since then, I stayed in the web working with various companies in Alabama. I worked for a brief period with Southern Progress, namely with Southern Living magazine and Health magazine, in their web departments. While there, I also wrote for Southern Living magazine, Health.com., and the company's internal newsletter. I write as much as I can. For the last five years, I have been working on my first novel. I am on the third revision now and hope to be finished with this draft by the end of the year. I also write short fiction, though not as frequently as I used to due to the time I spend on the novel. My goal is to have my novel published in the next three years. Other interests include: History (particularly medieval and ancient civlizations), Reading, Foreign Language (I currently speak Spanish but plan to learn as many as I can), Landscape Photography, the outdoors, sports (especially college football), and Travel.

  1. I ended up with Clergy too. I don’t go to church, but I do believe in learning, growing, and helping others. I’d probably be killed for arguing with the organized church or I’d have to travel from place to place before I could be killed.
