What do you do for a living? I work in Child protection
Do you love your job? Nope
What did you want to be when you grew up? A Teacher
If you could have any job, what would you want to do/be? Either a teacher or a SAHM. I never thought I would want to be a SAHM but now I wish I could be. Then again maybe even just working a couple of days a week, because I really do think I would get bored full time SAHM, after a day of holidays from work I end up climbing the walls.

What do you do for a living? SAHM. I did work in a mail sorting room at Capital One until Tobey was born
Do you love your job? Current job is obviously wonderful Smile I didn't enjoy the work of my old job but the people I worked with were the best bunch of friends anyone could ask for. I really miss them Sad
What did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to do something arty, a designer of some kind. I did a degree in building restoration but when I'd finished there were no jobs which is why I ended up at Capital One
If you could have any job, what would you want to do/be? I would be an artist. Drawing is a passion and a hidden talent of mine

Being a SAHM is really hard. I can see that it will get easier when they get older, but right now they have started fighting over everything, it's just stupid!! I can't leave them for 2 seconds without one of them yelling at the other, hitting, kicking, pushing, pinching, steeling toys etc. I just want to lock them in separate rooms for a bit Lol I could easily see myself being a SAHM until my boys leave home but life isn't that kind and we will eventually need more money. I'm hoping to get into teaching of some kind so I can have holidays off with them and not have to look for child care

What do you do for a living? Graduate Student. PhD in Conservation Genetics. Sounds exciting but really I sit at a desk all day writing grants, doing homework, and trying to figure out where my next paycheck is coming from.
Do you love your job? I love where my "job" is taking me. I don't love being a graduate student.
What did you want to be when you grew up? The apparently very popular veterinarian. I even started my undergrad with the intention of going to vet school but I fell in love with genetics.
If you could have any job, what would you want to do/be?: I'd love to be the on staff geneticist for a non-profit conservation organization. I'd really like to do that part time while home schooling my monkey, tending to a small organic farm, and advocating for natural birth. So, I guess I want to start a hippy commune?

What do you do for a living? I used to teach Kinder mostly in public school. Now I own a preschool that I run out of my house and soon in a free standing center.

Do you love your job? Yes, because it lets me be with my own kids as well.

What did you want to be when you grew up? Until about 9th grade I wanted to be an OBGYN but everyone told me that was gross Sad So then I wanted to do something in Environmental Science until the end of my Freshman year in College. Then my family told me that science and math were too hard and that wasn't a good field for a woman :roll: (BTW my family is way LAME!) So then I majored in graphic design which wasn't for me and that landed me in Instructional Technology (aka: making cdrom and web based training programs for companies). I kinda worked in that for 6 months (built a website for a company) and realized that a desk job is soooo not for me.

If you could have any job, what would you want to do/be? I really like my job now. I'd still love to go back and do some of the things that I wanted to be when I was younger but everyone frowned upon.

What do you do for a living? I am a marketing director for a local pathology lab.
Do you love your job?Yes, absolutely. I started out as a cytologist, then switched to marketing when I got my masters. The people are great, and the job is too.
What did you want to be when you grew up? A pediatrician. The more I worked in hospitals, I decided that an MD wasn't for me. So I looked into other healthcare related fields.
If you could do any job, what would you want to do/be? I really don't know that I would do anything different. If what was played on TV could actually happen, I do find the people on NCIS to have very cool jobs. Wink
