My God, I'm surprised there are so many students. I thought everyone here had a linguistics degree.

I voted "Grade school student", but I only have 1 day of school left, and hopefully next year I'll be going to university. (I'm planning on taking a Linguistics course, but I don't know if I'll major in it.)

I'm studying something completely different from linguistics. It's just a hobby for me.

Me too, I want to become a (medical) doctor as I mentioned it in the old forum.

@Talib: what are you studying then?

Blech, grade school.

Well, seeing as it's June, I actually do odd-jobs for pay. I wash dishes, mow the lawn, walk the dogs, and clean house. For less than minimum wage, I'll have you know.

It doesn't seem you checked "blue collar work" though. :D

The government will want you to learn French too then :P , so be prepared.

Yeah, prescriptivism says there should be an article there, but it sounds alright to me in this context.

Looks like there are more grade school students than anything else.
As for me, I do nothing right now, but I'm looking for work. Damn recession has made jobs scarce. :evil:
