4685: the number of days (not including today) that I have been in the financial services industry (calculated on my new HP 12c calculator, which you'll be hearing more about in the near future).
This is it. Today I hang up the ties, white shirts, and black dress shoes, and move into a new phase in my life--a new career.
Thanks to all who submitted guesses. I can only say that I'm sorry that my real answer will probably disappoint you.
I will be going into commercial real-estate appraisal. Some friends of ours are in the business, and they have asked me to join them. To do it, I will be taking approximately 180 classroom hours in the next 16 months, as well as completing several thousand hours of practical appraisal work.
The job is 12 miles from my house (vs. the 30ish I'm traveling currently), which opens up the possibility to have meals with my family. I will also have some scheduling flexibility, which I hope will translate into some Bible conference attendance (once I complete all the necessary work).
God has been incredibly gracious, as He always is, in leading us down this path. One day I will sit down and give a full accounting of His continuous faithfulness throughout my entire career.
But for now I'll be content to say thanks to Him, and ask (as you see fit) that you might remember my family and me in your prayers.
The first of my classes starts on Monday, and I'm assuming that I will be out of commission until they are over, which will be in about two weeks. In the meantime, if you just gotta have your fix, thanks to the magic of the Blogosphere, you will be able to see some of my work on BugBlog, and at Centuri0n's place as well.
