Chemistry graduate student. I take classes (for the first year) and do research (until I graduate), but I'm paid to teach two sections of general chemistry a quarter (lab and discussion) for the first two years.

Teaching over-privileged college kids at a rich-ass university is amazingly rewarding or soul-suckingly despairing, depending on what time of day it is.

Hotel industry~

I'm the one with the radio relaying the orders from my managers to the ladies working on the floors. Also, I take out trash, deliver dirty linen to the linen chute, vacuum hallways, and stock closets. And take breaks and build hilarious creations in the back employee hallways, especially around Halloween time. xD

Pays pretty well for what it is, and discounts on hotel rooms for cons is amazing~

I work at a resale boutique (basically a very clean thrift store). It's so much nicer than my old job at a resort. Never go into the tourism industry.
I'm also a full-time college student, and applying for scholarships is like a full time job sometimes.

Yeah, but the family benefits package is pathetic, which is why I'm forced to toil in the glitter mines.

That's terrible for your health. All those sparkly particulates get stuck in your lungs and then you cough up rainbows.

I work at Steam-Funk Studios, LLC

I travel to conventions, like last weeks Wicked Faire in New Jersey, and perform, roam the halls as the chaos to keep attendees from making chaos, sell modded nerf weapons, branch out to cosplay groups.

And all this? How does it pay?


I don't pay for cons, gas, or hotels anymore.



Also, will be going on the Nerdist, with Chris Hardwick soon, as part of both work, and my own venture, COBRA/Slick-Brass 2012, check us out on facebook!



Shameless self promoting

Don't feel too bad. Only job I can work at, at the moment, is cleaning an elderly lady's house once a week for an hour-hour and a half.

I kept an eye under the floorboards and could not see anyone.
