    Well, I recently joined here, and one thing I've noticed is you guys spend a lot of money on style.

    So, just out of curiousity, what do you do?

    I'm a student and I have a side online business.

    I would be interested in knowing what you seriously do to be able to buy this stuff...but if you're going to make something up, be creative [​IMG]

    I am a full time student and ERT (Easy Resident Tech, basically a computer install/repair guy) at Staples. If this little project goes well, which it is not right now, I will be in a Supervisor/jr management postion in my store for the ERT thing.

    I'm a project manager at an American investment consulting firm in Beijing. I do client management, translation, and writing of reports/organizing research, among other things. We do market entry-strategies, government relations, and investment target analysis for American and European multinationals, investment banks, etc.

    Look at my blog for my extra-curriculars.

    Yikes, don't have kids. J/k, I remember my mother doing her internship at the county mental health when I was a kid. Some scary stuff there. That being said, I don't know anybody who enjoyed their career as much as she enjoyed being a psychologist. Good luck! I am a portfolio manager.

    Damn, we need to organise export of that Fazer Rye bread from Finland. I cannot eat this shit they call bread here.

    I don't work. But my job is to stay out of trouble.
    I suck at my job.
