I've worked as a chef for the past two years. First in a hospital which I hated (mass production :)) but now part time in a hotel which I'm loving! Currently full-time in college to become an accountant which I'm also loving! May stay in college as a career :)

As long as I take my medication they let me empty the trash and some times sweep the floor, even though the docs do not like us to have long sticks so that is not very often.

Shhh, they will hear you (they are every where)

I'm a really good procrastinator. :)

I am an IT Tech and easily have the best job in the world... Now I just need the payrate to match it!

I would like to have my pay match my job as well.

I own my own business repairing programmable controllers.

I worked for 24 years as an electronic technician for Hewlett-Packard. I worked on cryo-genic based high-vacuum plasma deposition systems and loved it. My degree was based in RF electronics and this fit quite well until they began phasing in digital based systems,(pulsed DC) and I lost interest. I also had a failed radial keratotomy (eye surgery) and my skills were limited further. I retired and began working on becoming a writer. This has been fairly successful but my health has been going down hill and the med's I take to deal with it ruin a lot of my creativity. I keep plugging away at it and sell an occasional article but I'm 58 and my productive days are coming to an end.

I wish I had it to do all over again. I would work building wooden things, my hobby now but the most satisfying thing I've done. (see telescope) Health is affecting that too but I keep trying.

I'm a maintenance technician for a community college. I handle all of our off campus sites and do some networking. The best part of the job is the free classes. I have taken quit a few computer repair and networking classes.

When I lived in Chicago, worked from ’73 to ’82 as the supervisor of customer service of the largest publishing company outside of the Big Apple. Here in the Netherlands (got smarter in the meantime) I’m working for a university of applied sciences as an IT programmer and trouble shooter. Gonna retire in ten years… IF I can keep up with the newest technologies in computer sciences. :)

for now I am a stay at home mom while my husband is in the US Coast Guard which he has done a number of different things in it (from law enforcement to teaching our military, our police and other countries police use of force). He currently is overseas in the Bering Sea though and not by choice, detailer wanted him to go up in rank but he felt that the $200 a pay check wasnt worth being gone for 3 yrs.
Anyhow thats what we do, for now. In 5 years he is retiring with 20yrs in and we will get to settle down!
