I'm a Medical Assistant. I work for orthopaedic surgeons in a Sports Medicine specific office. We take care of the local minor league hockey team (go Lynx!) as well as most of the schools in the area as well as your every day patient.
THAT is what my dream job is!! I'm too chicken to be a nurse, but, an MA is what I have wanted to do for so long!!!

I am a paralegal at a large firm. I usually work on complex litigation, i.e. a cure for insomnia. Seriously, I do learn alot of interesting useless facts.

I knew someone would take the time to look it up.
When duplicate threads like this start they should be merged (IMO). Maybe the OP of the locked thread searched to see if one was already going months ago, maybe they didn't, but search is so erratic that merging similar threads might help narrow down the searches.

Or not

Degree in Studio Art: Sculpture

Jeweler (well Assistant Jeweler/Watch Repairman) by trade.

I also make and sell small sculptures and art jewelry on the side.

I worked at Radioshack for a few years so I still putter in little electronic things, circuitbending and the like.

I'm pretty much a lazy bum. I taught for about 15 1/2 years but have been out of work since June 2007. I have a few things in the works (a book, jewelry making, sewing, selling on ebay) but depression has left me sitting and doing nothing (including most housework) for over a year. I am getting a little better though and am getting started on everything. I am actually a perky, very brain-active person, so it is frustrating to have all these ideas and then just sit, unable to get started. The doctor has started me on B vitamins, and I am working on changing our diet, exercising, etc. We bought a lot of things on our vacation to sell on ebay, and things for jewelry making (I lucked into a gallon-sized bag of various sized pretty shells that just happened to have holes for jewelry making already in them. They forgot to add them before we paid, so they threw them in free!), plus about 45 yards of fabric (to add to the tons I already had, so I have got to get busy.

So, thinking positively (which is the only way I know), I am a writer, jewelry maker, seamstress, and ebay entrepreneur.
