What else do you do?

When you're not on a bike and on here?

For me, I'm an internet gamer. Just got through with playing one game and have since moved on to a new game.

Need For Speed Most Wanted, Black Edition.

You got any jobs at your company KonaRider? I've been contemplating a career change and game player sounds like something I'd be good at. For real tho, any jobs?

Ummm, a little big of studying (at least that's what I tell my parents ), some games(Halo), hanging out with friends, and sleeping. Sleeping takes up a majority of my life.

I'm a grad student in organic chemistry. To be precise, I'm doing total synthesis. On the side, I consult for a small but rapidly growing Boston-based software company called ITA Software. They're best known for handling airfare searches for the likes of Orbitz, Continental Airlines, and Cheap Tickets.

I go to church. I sleep. I eat. Back when I was working at a biotech and had more money to burn, I would engage in kart racing. Oh, did I mention I bum around a lot? Cycling has helped make me not a total couch potato, but I still bum around too much.

I find that hard to believe seeing as you often don't sleep until after I sleep, yet you're online before I'm up.

Mmmm, Caffeine! No, I usually try to get at least 7 hours a night. Surfing BF is just the last thing I do before I go to bed, and the first thing I do when I get up.

I'm usually shooting photos or working/doing class stuff.
I was a computer technician, now unemployed since my shop had to close due to lack of business. And I'm enrolled in a Chemistry 110 and COSC 218 (C++ programming) class at the community college here.

Basically dropped out of school, so I'm taking classes that'll help with a computer science degree when I move away from home in a year or so.

I play SOCOM 3, read novels, so homework, and some underwater basket weaving on my off training days.

i have the misfortune of being at work for 9 hours of the day. i usually go to the gym for an hour or so, eat for half and hour, watch some tv for a bit. When the snow melts, the gym will be replaced with me driving out to the trails and riding every day

I'm a grad student in architecture. I spend long hours getting a degree in a field I'm not even sure I want to work in. I also work part time at the LBS, which I seem to enjoy more than arch, crochet a little when it's cold (usually afghans as gifts), and brew beer.

How much money does an average architect make? I like architecture and was thinking about that as a future option.
