What do you do for a living?

I'm just curious.
I feel like when I meet people at conventions, they always have really interesting jobs. Or sometimes they work somewhere where you try to imagine a convention-going person actually working.

Personally, I'm a preschool teacher, specifically the three-year-old teacher.

eris - grim adventures of billy and mandy
paras - pokemon
esther - ni no kuni
xiao - dark cloud

I'm a janitor.

There goes that "interesting" theory of yours.

Well I live with my parnets so I don't really make a living yet. But I do work as a theater technician for Parks and Rec's theater department.

And preform on the side but I make little to no money off of this
Stuff I hope to do by the end of the year:
Prism - Original design: Done except for the bow
Akihito Kanbara (Idol) - Kyoukai no Kanata: Need to add details
Drag Cloud - Final Fantasy 7: Need dress, wig and braids
Princess Daisy - Mario: Haven't even started
Bahamut - Final Fantasy 4: I need wig, and to make the wings
The Best Costume Ever - It's a surprise: All I need is the wig!

Short: I'm a programmer/analyst.

Longer: I either provide services as a systems architect for implementing software in a business (Warehousing, distribution or sales). Or I code/maintain such applications.

Mostly, the company I work for resells SAP Business One and we offer services to add functionality within (and without) SAP itself.

Nothing yet because I haven't finished school, but I am working on being a farrier. AKA the people who shoe horses.

I'm a self-employed independant games developer.

...but since that's the software equivalent of being a novelist, I also do odd jobs and I'm looking for a real job.
Me on deviantArt.
Me on TV Tropes.
Me on twitter.

To do; Dark Link (70%) Link (20%)

Can't write, can't draw. Can code, a little.

I was hired to assist the secretary and the accountant, but when the secretary was fired I took over many of her responsibilities. It's mainly answering emails, making calls, making receipts/invoices, and making sure people pay along with other miscellaneous activities.

I go to late classes and am working on becoming a teacher.

I don't have an actual job right now (I'm on disability, but where I live you can still work on it for a clawback). I'm a fashion student who plans to soon start taking costume comissions/odd costuming jobs (When you're MAKING them, there's a lot more work to be found)/making Artist alley crafts for extra money.

I'm currently working at a golf course. I don't really have a specific job title because I do a little bit of everything. Mainly I work in the golf shop and sometimes I help my boss with her computer as she's clueless about how to use it.

I'll be going back to college in the fall to study fashion/costume design.
Tumblr - Facebook Fan Page - Etsy Shop

Working on: Lolita!Annie Leonhardt (Attack on Titan) - Red Riding Hood!Alois Trancy (Black Butler)
