When I go to college I'm going to major in Russian and take Japanese classes on the side, as well as regain my proficiency in Dutch. The next 8 years are a build up to me joining the FBI as a special agent ;)

What made you want to be a school psychologist? I find psychology very interesting, though I wouldn't want to make a living of it. My mom's a child psychiatrist, and she's deterred me from any medical profession.

well you save lives by giving good services on living places.

I understand respecting their opinions, but they have to respect yours. I think it's noble to want to be a police officer.

I'm still in Hs working at the Gap inside the mall.

I'm not so sure what I want to do. I'd like to be a psychologist for children. I'd also like to be a hair stylist in a really upscale salon. O_O

@C-Star: Nice sig, btw. I love Fear & Loathing.

Yeah Retail is horrible. I just started and already having somewhat of a problem with two of the girls that work there. Can't wait til I graduate from Hs and than go to college :D

@grey, 4 languages, wow, i can't imagine cramming all those words in my head, does speaking each language come naturally, or do you have to think for a moment recalling? Anyways, thats impressive, and yes, many opportunities will await for you in the future.

Firzen

Having more languages is a very useful skill to have, especially Chinese so you can go into business.

I'm a student that does office work as well as study and get paid for it.
No idea what to do for college. :P

@Greyhound..

what language do you think in? silly question, I know haha

I worked at a clothing retail store as well for my first job back in hs. However, i couldn't stand the people and arrogance, and quit shortly. I accidentally punched my manager in the face at one point lol.

@grey, knowing multiple languages is a huge plus when landing a job, a friend of mine was an International business major who spoke chinese and japanese before moving to CT for a job.

^ How do you accidentally punch someone in the face?  :icon_surprised:

I'm a college student enrolled in a Business Administration program, and my major is accounting  :lipsrsealed:. I've never had a part-time job , but I'm looking for one since I really need to develop some financial independence from my parents.

Greyhound

When I was younger it would depend on the language around me, so if I was in Holland I'd think in Dutch. But I'm so out of practice that I have a hard time speaking it now, even though I can still understand it fine.

Learning languages is easier for me than other subjects, so I guess why not cram as many in there as I can? Right now it's only two, but in five year's time I'm determined to know four.

xEclipsex

Thats amazing :O
I wish I could just learn one other language.
But I find it really difficult.

I think of myself as a thinker, an academic, but I express myself through visual media: art. That's what I say when people ask me what I do. I'm lucky enough to be able to sell some art and to have some language skills to be able to teach on the side.

At the moment, I'm in my 3rd year at university.  I'm aspiring to do something with photography.  While I would like to do something with art photography, there's no way I'd be able to make a living off of it (at least not now), so I will have to do something like commercial or press photography while doing art photography on the side in order to pay the bills and loans.  I may utilize my minors and do something with those, as I can't really picture myself with one job for the rest of my life.  I'd also like to write a book or two.

i got a small business, making just enough for me to get by. also i do some online jobs.

i tutor children for now, while trying to get my teaching career started. i feel like im a year behind what im supposed to be doing. its ok though.

my father helps me with money too, i am very lucky and i appreciate it. a lot of people don't have help and i am fortunate for that. i am not rich or anything, but i'm glad someone helps me.

I'm a senior studying physics and math.

Right now I work in the physics department with ultrafast (femtosecond) lasers. We use the lasers to study magnetic properties of very thin metallic films, like what you might find in hard drives in 5-10 years. :)

I'd like to continue in physics, but we'll see how that works out.

I'm dole scum, at the minute. Was selling Christmas cards over... Christmas, but that mysteriously dried up in January.
Before that I was a maitanence supervisor (basically a glorified office cleaner), worked in a hospital newsagents, spent a year in the back of Dominos making pizza, Southern Electric call centre, been a debt collector, a car park attendant, a health food advisor, a milkman (lasted one night!), cinema usher, tried selling windows door to door, worked in Boots warehouse packing tampons and nappies onto trucks, stuff like KFC and Burger King...
Never had a plan, career-wise. Dropped out of college (well, second time around I gots thrown out) and just started working at whatever came my way.

Well, I had to leave college again, so I'm not working in the lab any more. :(

I'm working on some ideas for a blog, and also teaching myself Java so I can do some Android development. I'd also do iPhone and iPad stuff too, but that requires a Mac which I don't have. But I'm currently unemployed.

I'll hopefully finish with my degree at the end of the summer. Then who knows what. Maybe my blog/app development will take off and I'll make millions! heheh, probably not, but all I'm hoping for is something to keep me fed, a roof over my head, and some money for hobbies.

I am actually working for my parents right now.  They have a couple of businesses so I run about from here and there doing loads of different stuff most days of the week.

Yeah most people would hate to work for their parents but I get on superbly well with my parents lol and I have always worked in their business since I was a kid and so it just comes kind of natural.  Plus anyone who has been involved in a family business would know what I am talking about.

I do have an undergrad degree in history and psychology and have been accepted into postgrad studies if I wanted to because I worked reeeeally hard at university and pretty much got straight A's at the expense of a social life lol.  But since spending the last few years studying I am just kind of tired of doing that.

So right now I am just enjoying doing regular work.  I do manual work too and I actually really enjoy doing that because it is just straight forward and productive.  Maybe one day I will do postgrad psych. but to be honest I just don't think I would have the emotional strength to deal with screwed up people all the time.  And history though I love it really takes you nowhere.

Plus the recession bites.  Yep!

I work as an English tutor for Korean students. It's a dead end job and the bosses really torture the employees. Still, I kinda like it. I like how high the pay is and I like how good I am at the job currently.

My real passion is to become a writer. I actually wrote a manuscript, only to have it rejected by a publishing house. It was a set of short stories and poems. But my fiction blog got 200 profile views already :D And it's been viewed by around a dozen countries :D

Long lasting happiness is created from within--accepting yourself as you are, not needing to change or do anything; loving, understanding, listening to, & being kind & compassionate to yourself; & knowing that you aren't damaged, defective, incomplete, lacking, or missing something, & you're normal.
