With the high price of HT and 2ch gear, many of you must have jobs. So what are they? Why do you do it? I need ideas for what to do with my life!

I am a college student, on my way to be an Elementary Teacher(only 3 more semesters!). I work for Parks & Rec of Olathe, KS during the summers. Awesome summer job: $9.50/hr with as much overtime as I want!

Currently, I bore myself to sleep studying until somewhere around 5AM.
If I successfully complete the above task, then on July 1, I'll be permitted to play doctor, go-fer, prostitute(I couldn't think of a better term for "being pimped"), and guinea pig for the last two years.
Back to the books...
Oh yeah, I make a whopping $500-1000 per year and borrow $40,000 a year.

The key is "upgrading" and ebay. Upgrade gradually and sell all the leftover crap you have on ebay to help compensate for the difference.

Chief Technology Officer/ Director of Production Services...New Orleans Convention Center.

NEVER a dull moment around the office.

Before life at the Convention Center...I owned a concert sound/lighting production company (which I still actually own, I just have to pay someone to run it now).

Gee, Joseph, no wonder the doctors are so hateful to the nurses! "It" really does flow downhill, huh?

As you may have guessed from my prior post, I'm a nurse (i.e. I torture people per orders from doctors). I give bitter pills, painful shots, uncomfortable treatments in very uncomfortable positions, make them drink horrendous liquid preps, insert catheters where God never meant them to be, and call doctors at home at wee hours of the night just to hear them yell at me. Fun, huh?

Tim: Do you mind if I ask what kind of fibre you have running into the center for bandwidth purposes?
Jenna: The point is you like what you do.

Frank, that's a little vague!!!
In my day job (hmm... I work the night shift!) I work for Continental Tire - putting up with customer complaints, quashing fears of tread separation, and trying to see that no crap gets out the door...
I also play drums for a rock band that's really starting to get some attention
