I was interested in starting a thread like this - just curious to know what everyone does when they're not collecting. It's neat to see such a wide range of jobs and studies that are somehow linked by an interest in Star Wars toys.
I'm a pharmacist. Yup, professional drug dealer. You want some good stuff, come to me.
I will have been doing this for 3 years as of May this year. I'm currently working in an Extra Foods, which is a member company of the Loblaws/Westfair corporation in Canada. My job is usually slower than what most pharmacists endure because we are a quieter store. There are 3 pharmacies in my town of 5000, and 2 of them are located within 1/2 a block of the only medical clinic in town. On the other hand, we are located on the outskirts of town, so most people use the other pharmacies simply out of convenience.
The pay is good and my hours are flexible. These are the 2 main reasons for me doing this job because I only work 24 hours a week and spend the rest of my time at home with my 3 year old daughter. She is my reason for being!
Do I like my work? Not really, a lot of people still have the mentality that a pharmacy is no different than a fast food joint, but I better digress. However, it pays the bills and my manager is flexible with switching hours.
It took me 8 years of schooling to get here, 4 years of my B.Sc. studies in Biochemistry and then another 4 to complete my B.S.P. My original plan was to use my Biochemistry degree to work in the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) forensics lab, but they've been downsizing the last few years. So I realized that my first degree wasn't going to get what I wanted, and decided that Pharmacy what be an adequate way to use some of my education. And here I am.
Would anyone else like to enlighten us? (But without rambling on nearly as long as I did
