What's your occupation?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

What's your occupation?

Hey BF-ers out there!

Having been reading BF for a while...I was just curious and I thought it would be interesting to see what type of occupation (or none) people out there are holding? I've seen lawyers...grad students...etc. on BF. I know someone tried doing this a few years back, but a lot things happen and change within a few years. You can be as specific or as vague as you want!

As for me, I'm just a 2nd year undergrad...

EDIT: Hoping to become a Nurse Practitioner

Well, I have a loong list of things I've done so far, here are a few.

Various retail jobs
customer service
logger
framer
technical support for Adobe
groundskeeper
Photographer
General Construction Foreman
Bicycle Mechanic

Life is too short to have ONE career. There are too many fun jobs out there to ever settle on one.
