What's the mix here?

I have been on many a forum and it's easy to see what people do and who they are. So I was just wondering what's the demographic here.

Stay at home moms?
Working guys?
Working women?
Stay at home dads?
Single parent and working?
Single and working?

That's all I can come up with. Maybe there's more. So, if I may ask, what are you?

I'm a college student who is eternally frustrated by the kitchenlessness of her dorm room. LOL.

I'm studying psychology and though I love cooking, I don't think I could ever make it my job. It would somehow become less enjoyable due to the stress of having to do it rather than simply wanting to. That said, I might take a class or two at the Culinary Institute for fun. :)

Well, Calli, we're long-time empty nesters. Had 5 children who are now "big people," some with their own families.

I'm still working...couple jobs. Interior design and writing. Been at it for many, many years. Also worked as a newspaper copy editor for many years, too. Don't think I want to retire because I really enjoy what I do.

I'm a mother of 2 boys mostly grown (18 & 23), worked 25 years as a registered nurse in pediatrics ( hospital, schools, doctor's office) but am now back in school learning American Sign Language interpreting. I am slowly getting back to creative cooking now that I only cook for hubby and me.

I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!
