Plus my wife works me like a dog when I'm at home, LOL

Yeah, but don't all wives do that?!   :P  Comes with the territory the second you say "I do."   ;D

Kind of an ultimatum around our house:  "If you want to buy another $100 worth of Star Wars toys, you better be doing A, B, and C for me to make up for it!!!"   :-X   ;)

Today's my 5-year anniversary here at my auditing gig!  Can't believe I've been here that long!

Maybe some of the newer JD'ers could chime on in here as well!  So, whatchya'll do out there in the "real world", eh...?

I'm a first year law student.  I haven't decided what kind of law I'm going to specialize in yet.  I'm leaning to sports and/or entertainment law.  I wasn't smart enough to pick a useful major in undergrad, so I pretty much had to go to grad school

In addition, I work as a clerk/courier for a local law firm.  Its a pretty easy job.  For the most part I just make copies and delivery papers to court.  Boring, but its good experience

I'm a writer.  Struggling artist.  Starving artist.   ;D

I've had a couple almost deals fall through on me in the last year.  It's very discouraging but this is what I was put here to do, so I just have to keep on keeping on.

I'm an organ grinder.  I bought a little monkey, went out to the country, and fed him some gingerbread.  I had to retire from being a pipe layer.

Carpentry pays most of the bills.Working in a bar covers the slack remaining from my insatiable lust for the plastic men I grew up with and am currently growing less enamored of.As can be evidenced in the pic thread I also do prosthetic makeups and I am an artist .I draw sculpt and paint in the fine art vein not this modern crap.
attempting to complete my vintage collection .Available for sculpting and painting.cantina monsters and droids a favorite project.

I am a support tech for a wireless company.  I used to drive around in a truck testing the network, which I loved, sortof like the Candian version of the Verizon guy. "Can you hear me now eh?".

Now I sit at a desk in our NOC (Network Operations Center) which I hate.  Mainly because I am not in the field, it is a LOT more stressful, no extra money, office politics sucks, and people blame me for stuff that isn't my fault.. all day long!

Other than that its a good company with kick ass benifits, which is a major reason I put up with all the crap.  Having 2 little kids would be expensive if I had to pay for all those prescriptions, dental work etc. etc.!

I'm an Art Director in the adult publishing industry, though I also work as a freelance Graphic Designer/Illustrator. I'm looking to move into (mainstream) package design very soon. I started working at this company about 3 years ago (straight out of college) just for the health insurance while I looked for a mainstream job. However, in this economy it seems lucky just to have a job.

 I am an Editor/Technical Writer. I think that's about the only thing one can do with a degree in Medieval literature.
I am a kind of paranoiac in reverse. I suspect people of plotting to make me happy.

My wife and I run a daycare that has 9 kids aged 1-4. It's a tough gig but very rewarding. Though it can be kind of sad to know we often witness the babies first steps before the parents do.
