what do you "do"?

hello again y'all,
I was sitting there today, in my overly stiffling, hopefully temporary cubicle and I started wondering what you all "do" for a living. I am imagining there is a pretty diverse base of people out there.... does anyone actually drive a bus with kids to school?

I'll start: I myself am a recent college graduate (how long can I claim being a graduate as my "profession"?) and am temping, as said above, in an office. doing data entry.... ALL DAY. I aspire to do something creative and outdoorsy someday. either that, or marry rich. a girl has got to dream.

Right now I am working as a Mechanical Engineer at a precision agricultural company, but maybe in Jan. I will be going back to school (Iowa State University) for a while.

I am a Police Officer in Northern Wisconsin. With 12 years in I can no longer claim to be a recent college grad, though I wish I could. I also wish that I was a rich guy but I've never met one I like so I aspire to remain poor and nice. Ok, it's the toys I keep buying that keep me poor (like buses, etc...).

Occupation?

The name of my 1927 50' boat reflects the answer to your question. The name of the boat is "Mysterion". When people ask me what that means I tell them "It's a mystery to me". Thats the way I prefer to keep it. Keep up the good work.

Later, J.B.

I'm a paramedic. I love my job! Never went to an actual college, but plan to become an RN someday. IN the future, as a critical care RN/ medic i hope to work on a rescue helicopter.

I live in michigan now, but i am at the point in my life that i can move anywhere and find a job. I've been considering finding a new state to call home.
