    I'm a piano accompanist for a local children's choir in Colorado Springs. The hours aren't bad and the pay is really good.

    Hmm...Tim Hortons...

    I'm a college student by day, and a coffee addict by night...and, uh...day. :rolleyes I'm an English/Polisci double major and a Film minor. See duckgirl over at that counter? I'll be filling her position in two and a half years. I'll be that snooty windbag who's always complaining about her massive student loan debts or quoting Kierkegaard when handing over the donuts.

    Mantenna - hey, how cool is it that you're an accompagnist? Can you improvise soundtracks for silent-era movies? (You know what I'm talking about, right...?) I'm assuming you are also a high-schooler like crissy?

    And Senrik - architecture is soooo cool!! I mean it. When I was at Carleton U last year, I always noticed how *elite* the architecture faculty is. Seriously, there were, like, 75 first-year undergrads. And it seemed like architecture students were always in their own little world, practically living in their studios...I was in Life Sciences last year, and even I didn't spend that much time in the labs.

    $1.85, joeguy? They were gettin' away with muuurd-dahhh!!

    My mom, God rest her soul, used to waitress when she was young and had to go back to it after my father died to be able to raise 5 kids ($25 a week plus tips). After she retired, she was telling me how "the married men would play with your knee under the table while taking their order and then would leave you another quarter." I told her "Mom, my wait staff gets $5 for that now days". Her reaction was "Do you have any openings?" That was my Mom!

    My first job was at my cousins gas station (back in the old days of full-serve clean your windows, check under the hood, etc.) for $50 a week working 65 hours per week. Then he started paying me $1 per hour after my first week. Did that through high school and when I started college I went to work for "Minnie Pearl's Roast Beef" (like an Arby's) for $1.25 hour which was minimum wage at the time. There was no such thing as overtime either. Straight rate no matter how many hours you worked. Ahh, the good old days B.S.

    Right now I work at Northwestern University, doing biochemistry research. Yeah, it's glamorous.

    In the past I've been a receptionist, retail jewelry salesperson, cashier, legal researcher and STD counselor. That last one provided hours of entertainment, let me tell ya.

    There's my life so far. As I told Pinkie earlier in the thread, you never know where you are going to end up when you start out in life. Sometimes one career move can lead to something you never expected to do but like more than what you originally planned.
