What have I been doing since high school?

The subject of high school reunions came up and it set me to pondering, what have I been doing since high school?

Hmm. I've been a waiter and a bartender for about three years, gone to college (and waited and bartended to pay for that) for three years in London and then what. Ah, I became a stockbroker, a job which I didn't like and was bad at. Then I set up a telemarketing company with some friends. That lasted about 5 years and died in a recession then I went to work in Russia. After that California. I've been a metals trader, distributor of newspapers, owned a deli, and am now a freelance writer.

That's quite a lot to fit into just under three decades, no?
