I was just wondering what we all do for a living?

Currently I am a student who works part time as a janitor at an office. I'll be graduating this April.

I code, run and support the 24 Hour Fitness applicant tracking system. If you ever went through the application and hiring process there then it was done using my software.

Math grad student with a little more than a year to go before I have my PhD. I do research and teach future engineers and scientists the math that they won't realize they need for a few more years.

Freelance writer, editor, proofreader -- Same with the Boss. We both do a lot of work for educational publishers, but also occasionally edit or proofread fiction for a small gay publisher in New York. (Lately, I've been proofing the new releases of the Donald Strachey mysteries. . . . and some erotica.)

I take phone calls from angry insurance agents.

I've set a deadline...up, over, or out by 1/1/11. I either need to promote, make a lateral move doing something completely different within the company, or leave to go open up a gay-themed bagel shop or make girlie calendars with a friend of mine by then. LOL

And boys that hang around
If if told you my biggest secret
Would you promise me you'd stay?

Spender of taxpayer money.

Also I sometimes kill people or bandage people, depending on who they are.

Ooo! New releases of new material, or new releases of the old stories?

Oh! Right! I'm a chief officer for 'a major ferry system in the pacific northwest.' :lol:

Both. The series' old publisher went under.

Woot! Just watched the three DS movies that have been released on DVD as of last night and enjoyed them immensely.

Coincidentally, my better half is an aspiring murder mystery writer... I think this conversation shall now move into private message to avoid hijacking the thread. :)

But I thought you were more in the habit of "killing kittens" on the weekend?

If you don't get the reference, perhaps this will refresh your memory.

Wow. Have you really killed somebody?

We used to have bagel shops here. They all went belly up. I thought they were a tasty snack. Not enough Jews here maybe. :?

I'm an accounting type person, btw. I know. Yawn. :P

I remember. That lasted several posts.

'Rescue' is a fluffy way of describing the same thing :wink: :D

Until recently a fiduciary compliance officer and project/support team manager for a large national bank (no, not one of those that have been 'in trouble'). One of those 'middle management' positions that's evidently expendable when revenue takes a nose-dive.

Now I'm working on figuring out what else I might be able to do 'when I grow up'... (Oh, and watching my carefully built 401k balance shrink like one of those people on 'The Biggest Loser'...)
