What Careers/jobs Are You All Doing?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have been on this site awhile now and I find its great finding out peoples ages and countries where they live, its nice to get to know people so... I just wondered what kind of stuff people are doing???

I am a mother and training in social care at uni. Being a parent is my main priority and I love it, doing social care is kind of me trying to help others, give alittle back!!! if I can help one person it will be worth it. I also volunteer which I really enjoy.

Doing a degree was not about the money/job etc, for me it was about doing somethink I thought I would never get to do. I just want that piece of paper to say I did it!! (an expensive piece of paper I know!!)

See you Lucy

I run my own shop, I am a jeweler and manufacture/ sell fine gemstone and precious metal jewelry. I am also a dancer but turned down the opportunity to go professional when I still could, now I am too old *sigh* at only 24.

Hugs,

Heya,

I'm studying for my A levels in English Literature, Physics and Religious Studies. Then next year I'm hopefully going to university to study R.S. or Theology. Then I'm going to try and get into some kind of work helping people in poverty, or maybe stopping abuse .. haven't quite decided what route I want to take yet.

I'm ignoring people warning me about how little cash I'll earn and I''m going to do what I want :P

It's really good to know that you all were able to "pick up" and move on to rewarding jobs. I am a professonal psych patient!!! I work at a mental health drop in for only 10 hours a week. That's all I can do, it's my 1st job and I'm 31 years old!!! I'm on a disability pension and probably will be for the rest of my life, but oh well!! I'm very sure though that I have kept quite a few psychiatrists gainfully employeed over the years!!

I spend my days and nights running after my three kids.

I love being a stay at home mom. When I get my littlest one into school I hope to return to school myself.

I haven't decided yet. Right now.. I'm in school to get my honours b.a. in sociology. I eventually want to go into politics I think. I just am not quite sure how to get there.. so it's difficult. I guess I could always be a prof or a social worker though :) Or work for statistics canada. Or maybe go into social psych. I dunno.. I would also love to be a photographer. LOL.. I'll never decide. I'll probably change careers 4 times in my life heh

I am a certified nursing assistant in school for my BS in nursing and a minor in Sociology. I have so many things I would love to do with my life. I have always wanted to start a home for girls who have been removed from sexually abusive home. A place where they can go and feel not so alone and that will provide them with the help they need when they need it, like having a therapist available 24/7 to talk. Also, i would love to be a stay at home mom some day, and I would love to write a book... hahaha... maybe I should change my user name to "daydreamer"... :blush:

WHAT A SHOCKER! most of us are doing jobs that involve taking care of others and/or expressing ourselves through art, how is that for having been given lemons and making lemonade? :greet:

I have a BA in Sociology....and I work in a call center, not putting my degree to use. I actually got the degree to try and figure myself out. I got burned out in my first year of grad school. I was going to try to be a university professor.

...maybe some day I will rekindle that dream.

I hope you do. I think you'd make a good teacher... you're always so patient and willing to explain. :)

I have this dream of being the college professor many love to have, but know they have to be prepared for class because I will call on random people for their opinions about the assignment for that class period. :)

I can definitely relate to the getting burned out on school hon. I'm only in my second year and it's just ridiculous >_o

It's good to take some time off if you feel too stressed, you can always go back so it's never a big deal to take a break. I think you definitely should go back though, it sounds like you know exactly what you want to do. <3
