Default Your occupation?

So what do people do to pay for their TFs addiction? Are you in a career, a temporary job until something else comes up, unemployed, or at school or Uni? (if at Uni, what are you studying, or aim to become from it)

For me, it's working in a Coles warehouse, but only until something better comes along. I've been there four years now, but it's good money for just stacking boxes.

I'm a bum.

But that changes as of next February.

Okay, if you post that you are Uni, what are you studying, or aim to become from it?

Okey dokey!

Funny thing is, I've never aimed to become anything. Uni/my career is something I do b/c I'm good at it. I'm going to be a consultant/analyst in the finance field. I've lined up a position for next Feburary which while I know I'm fortunate, makes me sad b/c I'm leaving behind the best years of life.

(as you can tell, I'm a very career driven person )

Manage a retail store with a part ownership in it.
Also doing an accounting degree at Uni (slowly but surely) to become a CPA.
Also ref basketball which is great because the Tax Department considers it a hobby still so that income is tax free. This may change in the future. I think refs at some associations actually pay tax.

just a "senior" Junior Test Analyst at Ocean Software that is practically underpaid but has a good environment to work in. will be progressing into a Junior Developer role in a couple of months which would bring in hopefully more money for my toys and wedding preparations.

am intending to work at this place till mid 2010 before locating for a much highly paid job.

Been an Automotive Parts Interpreter for the past 7 years. Before that I was a deckhand on a fishing trawler.

I'm about to change careers though but I'll announce that as it happens in the next couple of weeks.
