I work for the USPS and I hate it. I started back to school this past September on a journey to earn at least a masters in history. I'm not sure what I'm going to do after I earn my bachelors, I may go into teaching while I work on the rest of my education. I want to eventually teach at the college level.

As of right now I also want to double minor in anthropology and archaeology, but that could change.

Currently jobless, but keeping occupied by doing things around the house, i feel like i am on holidays, frankly i deserve a few weeks off after working my butt off to move here

I work in a call center that handles Direct Student Loans. I work the assist line where I help other reps with questions that the borrowers have. I handle supervisor calls too. I also answer regular calls from borrowers. We also handle disability discharge calls. That is where people who are disabled try to get their student loans discharged. I don't take the calls directly, but answer questions from the reps and handle calls that the person asks for a supervisor. These are mostly from people that the discharge was denied since the medical staff has determined that they should be able to work or their doctor says they can work in the future. It can extremely stressful at times.

When I get home, I will sometimes make dinner but not every night. I will make a pot of soup that lasts all week and DH eats that and loves it.

DH is home all day since he is disabled, and will do the dishes, scoop the litterbox and take care of the kitties.

One thing that I have learned from working at my job, is patience with the people who are mentally ill and trying to get their loans discharged. Being married to someone who is mentally ill is a challenge that I live with daily. Fighting social security is the worse part of it. It helps that DH has a great doctor that cares and he is on good meds now that has really helped him cope.

I know a lot of young people are on this site. Please do not abuse drugs as you never know what will happen and the consequences that affect you later in life. Do not yoyo diet either. It was a combination of these two items that we believe caused DH's illness.

I'm a Promotions & outreach librarian. I get to do display work and go out to community groups to promote the Library, do class visits in schools and run programming in our library. It's actually alot of fun if you don't mind doing something different every day of the week.

My brother is doing that right now. He's in Beijing teaching English.

As for me, I currently work for a distribution company, but I wouldn't call that "my living". I'm going to school to become a vet and I also volunteer at the humane society and a vet office.

I work at a movie theatre. Doesn't sound glamorous, and the pay certainly isn't, but I love it. I don't have much to compare it to, since it's my first job (only other "job" was volunteer work with a therapeutic riding program, which were the best years of my life). Been here for a year and a half now, almost, and now I'm at the point where I'm upstairs all the time, in projection. I take care of all the movies, setting them up and playing them, tearing my hair out and swearing when one of the movies decides to have a heart attack and stop playing (once in a blue moon, getting caught and allowing the bulb to burn a few frames). Sometimes when a movie fails, I can figure out what's going wrong (feels good then), but often I can't, so I gotta get it started up manually. It's dark up there, lonely, LOUD, and a perfect fit for this antisocial reader, lol. The theatre's haunted, though, and even though I've not seen the ghost (supposedly a young girl), I always get the willies when I'm closing up and turning off all the lights and have my back to what feels like miles of darkness. The guys I work with are all great, too, though since I'm always upstairs rather than in concession or box office, I tend to converse and hang out with the managers instead, when I come downstairs.

I don't want to quit, but I still want to have a second job revolving around animals. I know retail supposedly sucks, but I still want a job at Petsmart, lol

i work at the college with 14 to 16 year olds who are have been permanently excluded or are at risk of exclusion. they come to us and try out various vocational subjects in the hope of showing them education is worth it.

94% of our students went on to higher education last year with the remainder getting full time jobs. our aim is to prevent these kids leaving school and becoming NEETS. (Not in Education, Employment or Training)

been doing it 2 years and i love it!

I'm a Medicaid Service Coordinator. I have a caseload of 19 adults with developmental disabilities, and my job is to obtain, coordinate, and monitor all of their benefits, entitlements, services, and supports. But I like to tell people there really isn't much that isn't in my job description

I'm in charge of organizing 19 other peoples' lives, basically... no wonder my own is so disorganized!

I am currently on sick leave from work but I am supposed to start back next week. I don't think I want to though! I was a 1st yr apprentice pipefitter at a local refinery and I am sick of being the only girl amongst the hundreds of pigheaded men at the plant. It pays well but I hate it. I may go back to working at a riding stable.I would rather shovel poo than spend 12hour nights 7 days a week with all the jerks!

I also am finally starting to make money off selling my drawings and pet portraits. It has taken years of trying to get my art out there but it seems to be working and people are finally interested. I have several stores selling drawings and a bunch of trade shows and such to do this upcoming year!
