What do y'all do?

To put it simply, I enjoy my contacts with you. But it makes me wonder what y’all do every day. Some of you have given hints, but fill in the blanks; what is it you DO?

For the record, I am a contract grease-hunter (since I realize industry jargon doesn’t travel far I’ll say I am an oil & gas exploration consulting geophysicist).

I work for a tutoring/SAT prep company in So. Cal. Right now my days are filled with teaching SAT verbal classes, making materials, wanting to scream at employees that can’t even address envelopes right (she’s canned; that’s the decision as of today), and writing homework and quizzes for vocabulary lists. We’re doing the 60+ hour week.

Well, I am going to school for fitness studies/cardiac rehabilitation. But I have a job offer as a regional sales manager I will probably take instead. And I’m working on my racing career too. (just racing karts this summer, hopefully Barber Dodge Formula next summer).

Currently I am a computer geek. In the past I have done the following: fund raising for a private college, crocheted, read Tarot/palms, composed music, played guitar (classical, jazz, rock, punk, hardcore, and folk), and a body piercer. :slight_smile: I think that about covers it. I have a degree in music with an emphasis on composition and classical guitar. I am currently composing a lot now but I have not published anything.
