What do you do for a living?

I think it would be interesting to see what members here do for a living.
If more than one option fits you, choose the one that best describes you.

I'm a "soldier" in civilian service.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civilian_service

Basically I have a full-time job but I don't get paid anything, except lunch-money. I am employed by our local theatre but my assignment for the last two weeks was to keep watch over at the gallery, and few meagre tasks.

My service ends in March 1st 2009.

My service ends in March 1st 2009.

That date passed over 3 months ago.

I'm currently in high school. Though I feel umcomfortable saying that because to me it sounds like I'm trying to do adult things and I shouldn't be.

I think that 40% of this forum is in the same position.

I was a university professor, but every 2 years I got bored and work in the corporate computer engineering field (UNIX networking and programming) where the big money is :) Then I would go back to University instructing 2 years after that. Then 5 years ago I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and I'm on disability. One of the WONDERFUL side effects of MS is I lost 30 IQ points. :( Image Image

So now I go to people's houses and fix their computers for a fee when I'm able to. I have 3 kids, with 2 of them teenagers, so that's part of my job too :)

I'm not in "grade school", but "secondary school". :lol:
I'm going to be S4 in September (Which means Grade 10?), but I still behave like a primary 4 student. :roll:
