What's your job? Or if you're still a student, what's your course/grade/level? Or what's your role in life? I'm a copy editor at publishing company that specializes on medical and scientific journals. I'm a psychology graduate and i used to do field research as a psychologist for a study conducted by the USAID here in our country. My contract expired last year and the study ended,too. So now i got this copy editing job (no other jobs available here, tsk tsk). It's been a year since i started working here (i got this job 1 week after my contract with the USAID ended), and it's quite nice that i am able to work on articles about new developments and experiments in medical science. I just get bored because of the time schedule and because we just sit in fron of the computer and read for 8 hours. Other than that,the job's ok. How bout you?

I am still a student. I am double majoring in sociology and computer sciences eventually hoping to get a masters in library sciences... kind of a weird combination, but it makes me happy. I also work at KFC which is not a wonderful job, but I get along there all right. I have been there for about a year, so I have enough seniority that people leave me alone. I would actually like fast food if it weren't for finicky customers.

Hello. I tool my Masters 2 years ago. I think that's a good idea if you really wanna have your masters degree. Mine was like a teaching fellowship. I taught a few undergrad classes and i tool my masters at the same time. I didnt get paid for teaching but my tuition was free. hehehe. that was a great experienced. I stopped though. coz i got hired. Well, a masters degree is a good idea. good luck! 8)

Right now I'm a student. I am majoring in secondary education, English. I've always wanted to teach English and I've decided that I'd better just do it before I get any older! I do some work from home, telemarketing and things, but right now my priority is getting through school.

I'm doing great. Just kidding. I'm a a copyeditor, too; and man, I'm bored, too. Good luck on your shift and have a nice day. I used to work in a cement plant, but got tired of tasting the cement products LOL

You seem to have an interesting job, but I hope that you find something that you would not consider boring. Hopefully an opportunity comes to you! I work at a local vet clinic as part of the kennel staff. I am also still a student, and will be starting my freshman year at college in the fall. I plan on majoring in Psychology, and maybe getting a minor in Zoology, but I have not decided whether or not I want to. However, I will not be taking classes on either just yet, I plan to get some of my other general classes out of the way first. That will also give me time to think whether or not I really want to go into those fields.

Well, I definitely do not plan on backing out of it. I've taken three different Psychology classes in high school, and I loved them!
