Zac is a fourth year Kinesiology student at Trent University. He is a member of the Trent University’s Varsity Men’s rugby team.
I asked Zac what his opinion of occupation was.
“it’s your job”
You go to school for 4 years or even more to work toward your future job. One that you are excited for and have put a lot of time and effort into it. Something you have worked so hard for. An occupation is what you get at the end of your schooling, a job. Even right now I have an occupation working for my dad who’s a contractor in the summer.
After reading the Hito Steyerl Text, Zac’s opinion changed.
“it is a state”
I guess occupation doesn’t just mean a job. Like the author stated its more then a job it is a state. Like when you study that occupy s your day, or going to the gym or going to practice. They all occupy your time. I guess being a student athlete I have an occupation to go to practice, games, and do my school work. I have a lot more occupations then i thought I did.
