I work for BlueCross BlueShield New Mexico processing claims and other misc. clerical duties. I run Samba's Reptile Rescue on the side, which a non-profit I started when I was 17 (7 years ago).

Oh man.

I babysit one week, and am a secretary the next...the phone rings once a day if that. The kids I babysit are older, so basically I get paid to play xbox with them all day

I love my job...

I am a student going into grade 12, after which I intend to go to school to become a vet. I've considered being a herpetologest but the money is far from enticing (spelling sucks). Right now I stack hay, sell things on e-Bay and play with stocks but none of it amounts to any substantial income.

Car mechanic, turned heavy truck mechanic, turned heavy truck mobile mechanic, turned heavy equipment mobile mechanic. I have a love hate relationship with my job. The hours are far too numberous, sometimes outside in mud, lying under a bulldozer, in the rain or in the snow makes me wonder why i bother doing it....then my paycheck comes in a quickly realize why. I love the mechanical aspect of it, i love and have always loved fixing things. I particularily like being mobile, its just me, the machine and my tools, no one to help, no one for advice, just make sure you fix it, companies don't like to hear that you can't. It makes for an interesting and often frustrating day sometimes, but the challenge makes you strong, and the feeling of satisfaction i get from figuring out something that took hours or days is often a great feeling once you finally get it right...its hard to explain but i guess in the end i just love and need to fix things

I'm a student going into grade 10 next year and am planning on either getting a degree as a vet that specilizes in reptiles or get a herpterology or zoology degree and either work with reptile or big cats at a zoo.

Well, I do numerous things. I'm a mom of 2 awesome boys, I'm a reptile keeper, an artist(as if having real reptiles isn't enough I have to sculpt them from clay too) and I also work full time as an assistant manager at a jewellery store. I'm a busy girl!

I work in a Quality Assurance lab for a large snack food company. I get to taste a lot of crap for 8 hours a day. You would be surprised at the stuff that gets put into processed food!!!

In my spare time, I conduct educational presentations that feature herptiles and arthropods.

My full-time profession is 'guard', 'boss', 'hack', 'screw' or whatever other semi-unflattering euphemism there is for Correctional Officer.

Thus, my hobby involves the keeping of extraordinary beings in captivity. Ditto for my full-time job...LOL
