    Also an auditor except I don't hate my job as much.

    You mean the long hours, unappreciative clients, tyrannical partners, unrealistic budgets and low pay for given effort doesn't get to you? What is your secret?

    I'm an electrical contractor. I've been an electrician for a while, but am looking to stop working with tools so much. It's killing my body.

    I drink, sleep, do homework, eat, drink. I will have a job this summer, likely some horrendous gig at a restaurant.

    I charge in as much expenses as possible to make up for it. Also, I stopped caring about being fired which means less people mess with you because they can't control you.

    I don't spend all that much on clothing, but that may (somewhat) change soon.

    I'm a label designer for a medical manufacturer that produces pharmaceutical, surgical, and consumer products, as of this morning. Prior to that, I was a retail sales associate.


    This sounds like fun. Do you work with a marketing staff?
