    I know some very intimate details about some of you that you've chosen to share from your bathroom habits to whether you prefer to have your face planted in a pillow or you prefer staring at the ceiling. But I don't know what a lot of you do as a profession. Blue Collar? White Collar? No Collar? No shirt? If you're a student do you have a part time job or even a full time job too? Do most of you work 9-5? Anybody on the night shift?
    Me, I teach elementary school from 7 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. Then I take classes from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. once a week and from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. once a week.

    I'm gonna bump this coz I like Coach Mike's posts.

    Music therapist, researcher and writer on music and health and every now and then I lecture in universities. I teach piano a bit, and I help to run a community choir in London, UK. My job involves engaging the staff of a large healthcare organisation in musicalising their work. So you could say I teach 15,000 healthcare workers how to sing. Cue music icon_smile.gif

    I've done it all! Many -- MANY! -- years as a road musician, playing for various national tours and shows. Then I "sat down" and taught music for ten years at a local private school, then retired....

    Now, my husband and I own a Wellness Clinic that specializes in Hormone Replacement Therapy. We're in our second year!

    College instructor - Teach a range from Basic Computer and computer application courses to Business Math, Economics, Management, Banking, Accounting, and other business courses... usually what no one else can or wants to fit in their schedules.

    I am also the chair of my division - which is basically the supervisor/manager.

    Someday I am going to finish my doctorate degree and be a full professor.

    Seems like this kind of thread comes up occasionally, but it does help connect and become familiar with other members.

    I'm an attorney, financial advisor & planner and run my own investment firm.

    My partner and I raise livestock... predominantly a cow/calf operation in northeast Kansas about 90 minutes west and north of downtown Kansas City, Missouri.

    I wouldn't want to do anything other than this. it's been a good life and we've been blessed.

    Surgical RN. Worked in the operating room of a large level 1 trauma center/teaching hospital for almost 30 years. A little over a year ago, I transferred to a smaller OR at another hospital within our system. Still enjoy what I do, I just do it with a lot less stress.

    I am an internet services director for a chain of car dealerships based in the midwest. There are 14 of them so far and another 3 will open by next April. I am responsible for all of the content that shows up on our webpages and responsible for all of the photographers and the managers who do the descriptions. A rather demanding job, but a fun one too. I get to travel from the Grand Rapids, Michigan area to Chicago. So lately, I have been spending some time in the Chicago area exploring.

    White collar, even though the dress code is very relaxed.

    I work in Travel Management for a large German Company in the US. Mostly negotiating with airlines and car rentals for good frame contracts and proving to management how much money is being saved by my team's efforts.
