      After my recent post about the weekends we all had planned lets find out a bit more about what else we all do when not dealing or learning to cope with t so my post is 'what do we all do for a job work career etc'. I will start the ball rolling!!!

      I work as an 'IT Support manager' we run a small help desk of techy whizz kids who help people with their computers and epos till operations. It's a chain of supermarkets in the uk I work for and I help people 'reboot' their systems it does fix a lot of IT issues ! What do you do?

      I'll be the first to respond then.

      I started my own business just over a year ago with 3 others, we do consultancy in environmental, waste management and health and safety. And we knock the odd petrol station down and decommission fuel tanks.

      Not very exciting apart from the petrol station bit. And of course I'm also a part time musician and apprentice web developer.

      i also do a lot of music on my free time which led, i guess, to the minor tinnitus i have

      I am a currently a web developer, trainer, graphic artist and programmer. I now mainly specialize in educational software. I also do freelance graphic arts and web development projects for various clients. In past, I have done sound design for games and worked in the film production in Los Angeles. I was a club DJ for years in my youth (which could be one of the reasons for my T) when I lived in Munich and here, in the Pacific Northwest.

      @Markku,

      Hahahahaha very funny :LOL:, I assure you that is me in the picture, a recent one at that probably 3 weeks old. A lot of people have the same reaction when they ask me what my job is, however I don't blame them I'm 5"2 tall (quite short) so I guess I do look funny driving around 800 tone dump trucks

      I'm a structural engineer. I also write software for other structural engineers, which is a side business I've had for over 20 years.

      I prefer designing buildings with architects, but that type of work has slowed down. Bridges are what usually pays the bills. I've done this so long, designing bridges is like making sandwiches at Subway.

      My older daughter has switched her major to structural engineering. Can't say that I didn't warn her. It can be a really stressful job at times, and I have the grey hair to prove it. I've been trying to convince her to go into audiology, but without luck.

      My profession seems so boring compared to most of you. At the moment I am a home mum looking after two young boys. A four year old and a two year old. However before having my children I was a high school teacher. I taught Politics, Italian and English literature.
