What do you do?

I did a search for this to see if it was already done, which it prolly was, but there was like 12 pages of stuff to go thru and I really didn't have time.

So, what do you do for a living?

I work as a Peri Operative Tech (OR Grunt, LOL ) and am starting out as a financial advisor.

Do now? Or what led me to where I am? That's a neater question, I think.

Me. Trained/educated as school teacher/sociologist/writer. In the past I worked as an identifications tech for the F.B.I. in Washington, D.C. Property management officer for a trio of apartment complexes in suburban Maryland. In-home daycare provider. Civilian employee acting as a department secretary for a navy installation.

Designed and sewn wedding gowns. Merry Maids office manager/supervisor. Computer company collections manager.

Currently own and operate an interior design business and write a syndicated column for U.S. newspapers.

Other than those jobs, nothing of any note. Just tryin' to make a livin' and not be bored.

Oh, best job of all... wife and mother. Been doing that for nearly 38 years.

Well, since you wanted to go there:

Greasy spoon local chicken place (Chicken Coupe), Edwards/Stop and Shop, IHOP, Burger King (almost every single one in Monmouth County over the course of 3 years, scattered within and during the next few jobs), Toys R Us overnight, Kmart (two days worked, paid for three. Hey, I ain't complaining), Pep Boys, TGI Fridays, Path Mark deli, Barnes and Noble, Sears, Bayshore Community Hospital (2 1/2 years) and with CitiGroup (technically) about 4 years, but only recently realized, as with my past, I'm the only one who can do for me, no one else will, nor with they help me get where I need to be.

That's a few too many jobs for a 22 year old and it's weird going back and seeing the same kids I worked with 3-4-5 years ago working in the same place, not doing much with their life but struggling to afford a child they weren't ready for. I made a promise to my GF because she want's to have a child before she hits 30 (she's 26 as of September), that this will be my year.

My goals are to be making 3 times what I am now, being able to get us a place, getting myself a new truck and help her get back into school to change her career, by the end of the year. Oh and also to put a ring on her finger, on her 27th birthday.

Somebody posted a link where you take a test to see if you are a male or female. We listed all this stuff there. Our lives are entwined in the recipe post we make and the laughter that we share. NOYB (none of your business!)

I run a courier service with 18 employees and over 20 vehicles. In my spare time I play in my woodshop or work on my house.

Cool thread.

I herd cats and beat my head against a brick wall all day. (Well, that's what it feels like. I'm a 4th grade teacher).
