    Props to all the stay-at-home moms. I work at home 3 days a week and watch my DD. I swear, my days off are when I get to go into the office.

    She does amazing work. I've been encouraging her to digitaly watermark it first and then put it online and .... show, that is find a gallery and show.

    My background's in art though I also work in telco industry and what she does is paint ... with a camera and computer.

    Come to the ride this Sunday in California, I'm sure she'll show you after the ride It's amazing stuff.

    I am a Portfolio Administrator/ Senior Cash Accountant in a large Wealth Management Firm in NYC. It's not my perfect job but like for many of you pays my biking, gym and other hobbies that I so enjoy. My other job is babysitting my BF who acts like a 5 year old on a daily basis

    We had 16,000 cases filed in Indianapolis alone in the six weeks before the new bankruptcy law went into affect in October of 2005, and a total of 35,000 cases for the year. We were one of the busiest courts in the country during that time. In contrast, we had a total of 9,000 cases filed locally in 2006.

    I wish I could say the the dramatic decrease reflects improvements in the law or that people are going into less debt, but I don't think that's the case. I just think the change in the law flushed out just about anybody who was thinking of filing, and that it's just a matter of time before numbers go back up. If and when the real estate market falls out--to the point it's affecting not just sub-prime but prime lenders--all hell is going to break lose.
    Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Continue to learn. Appreciate your friends. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.

    PhD Microbiologist ended up in the "real world" packaging medicines for clinical trials. I want to DO clinical trials, not just provide the boxes. So I am currently on the lookout.
    It's a little secret you didn't know about us women. We're all closet Visigoths.

    Research technician at an Agricultural College. I get to help out on whatever trials they are running. Lately it's been wrestling piglets and chopping up cow feet.

    Still trying to complete that PhD in Ecology. Tentative date for completion is mid-september. Then I'll be on the look-out for ecology type jobs, either in research or in consulting.

    Depends on whether you're saying 'real world' or 'in my world'
    In my world, I'm a highly trained assassin currently under deep cover waiting for my next assignment.

    ...in the real world, I'm a financial advisor's assistant.

    ...like I said. 'Deep cover'. Hey, it makes every day more interesting.

    I'm a Surgical Technologist - or I was. I fell last May(2006) in the operating room onto my right knee - but in 'seated' jobs(wherevever the hospital wants to put me) and in January had a knee scope - have Patella Chondromalacia - Grade III - my OS talking about a possible Faulkerson's Procedure or Patella Femoral Joint Replacement. I haven't worked since 1/19/07. Don't know if I'm going to be able to do my job again. So that's why I say 'or I was'.
