We had a thread like this on the old boards, and I've always found it quite interesting - so, since a lot of people here joined since then (and I want to find out if what Tamyra says in her profile is true), I shall ask the question again. What do you do to earn a living? Is there something else you do that you wish was your day job, or that you intend to make your day job? I'm an accountant (still in training). Surprisingly, I really enjoy it. You get to snoop around in other people's personal affairs, which is great fun. Before that, I worked at a funeral director's as a secretary and receptionist for three educational years. Before that, I was still at school, but I worked at the Register Office at the weekends and during holidays, ushering for weddings and compiling a computer database of old marriage registers. My ideal job would be writing.
