    I was just reading some posts and I started to wonder what every poster does for a living. Myself, I am currently un-employed, but most recently worked in a factory as QC/assembler/machine operator. What do you do for a living and what would you LIKE to do for a living?

    well im a full time student (high school), and hold a part time job at CVS as a cashier/stock worker. I average about 14 hours a week, and at $7.50 and hour im earning more than most 16 year olds that are holding jobs that don't get payed under the table...

    As for what i'd like to be, it is a very real possibility that i will be a lawyer or something in the field of law. I'm extremely interested in debate, politics, and essentially everything surrounding that field.:)

    I re-do numbers on tax returns ... what I would like to have done earlier on was work in the advertising area or be part of broadcast network personnel who decide what new shows make it for an upcoming season.

    I'm currently in grad school, the degree which will result in my receiving a secondary teaching license in English. I did the business world for twenty years and hated every minute of it.

    My wife is being offered a job that will double her salary, but have her travelling quite a bit. She's thrilled to have been recruited like she was! We're all thrilled about the increase in income!

    I'm a uni student/waiter. Although, if all went well, I'll just be a waiter for a while, then back to being a uni student but I won't be a smelly undergrad anymore.

    Woo!

    Yay for male babysitters! I did quite a bit of sitting when I was a teen. Babysat the original bee girl, and the drummer for Blind Melon! Their parents are my godparents.

    Student in high school

    translation: I do almost no work, get 100s on english tests I don't study for, and live at home. My mom lets me use her credit card to go buy food at the Wal-Mart Market so I can buy all the tofu I need. YUM. I can also sleep for 10+ hours, starting at 6 PM with no repercussions.

    Life is sweet right now.

    I expect to have a kicked butt this time next year. Freshman year of College and all. :eek:

    Forensic Scientist. My specialties are in the areas of controlled substances, drug labs, gunshot residue, fire debris, and soon to be explosive materials.

    Oh, I also collect evidence from crime scenes. I hate to be woken up in the middle of the night....

    I do a variety of things. Most of my time (obviously) is spent on repairing computers at some medical clinics. When those seem to be acting normally, I either design webpages, edit video, design collages, or have to figure out how to do something we've never done before.

    I've been fixing their computers for about 6 months now, and I really don't think that I will be able to keep doing it for very long because I'll just go insane, especially after I have switched to mac. I really wish that I could get all of the clinics to dump their Dell's and just get some Mac Mini's, but that's not going to happen because:

    1) Their computers would not need to be fixed and our business would suffer.
    2) They have some medical records program that only runs on windows.

    Sigh....

    Oh, I'm also a student studying graphic design.
