How old is everyone and do you do?

I'm sure this has been posted many, many times before but I didn't feel like diggin out an old post so I figured I'd make a new one, even if it's not proper protocol. So the question remains, how old is everyone and what the hell do you do?

I'm 21 and a college student majoring in Political Science, hoping to get into Law school.

15 in year 10 in Ipswich UK

the only income I have is for helping orchestras out by playing oboe for them....
not many people play the oboe, so all the more work for me.

Odd thing is the hugely varying pay, about two months ago I did a concert for a choral society involving 8-ish hours playing - £20

I've just been offered threee concerts involving OVERALL 6 hours playing - £120...
not complaining though.
