Hey all,

I am curious as to what folks do, not only to earn their keep, but just to pass the time.

I am a painting contractor with an undergraduate degree in History. Love to read, outdoor stuuf, Frontline documentaries...

How about everyone else?

I love hearing what people do besides ATS.
I'm a designer/craftsman working in wood, metal, clay and other alternative materials. I wholesale my work at the Buyers market of American Crafts and At the American Craft Council Trade shows. I am a partner in a retail store. I have a MA in anthropology and I have never had a job; I just sell what I make in my studio; furnature, guitars and basses, shrines, fine art. I also have a flyfishing guide and outfitting business. I owe my skills as a fabricator to my father who built and repaired airplanes in Texas. Yes, I know I am blessed!!

I am an engineering bureaucrat with The Boeing Company in Mesa Arizona. I have a BA in English from U of Maryland (1969) and a BS in Logistics Engineering from Arizona State University (1988). Neither one has much impact on how I do my job, but they helped me get it in the first place. I am chasing an MBA and should have it complete around May, at which time I will consider retirement from the Death Business and get a job teaching somewhere until I am 65 which isn't for five years. Then I'm going to screw off and spend your social security savings

I also give private music lessons part time in various peoples' homes, which is a nice little on-the-side cash business.

not the only one here, i imagine. im at the end of a 2yr break after high school, and am thinking about a career yet have no idea. stuck in retail, and tired of it. perhaps people here with careers can describe what there like, what they involve and what kinda person itd suit. i think this may even be a great new subject for a thread. looking forward to thoughts on this.

I can relate to the pediatrics thing; my wife is the Director of Pediatrics for 4 HMO clinics in our area...

I also have a 24 yr. old daughter (her birthday is today) who is shopping around for medschools. She has been accepted at Ohio State, but we are going back to Dartmouth for an interview next week. Then, down to Washington D.C. where my youngest (15 yrs.) daughter will be singing at the National Christmas tree lighting ceremony, as well as the National Cathedral. I have never been to the east Coast, so it should be quite an experience.

I think you're right, your question would make a great thread.
All I can tell ya' is to find something you really enjoy and work hard, hard, hard in pursuit of it.
