    So, what does everyone do for a living??

    Currently Im doing application support for the government... Pretty boring if you ask me.. But basically my work experience includes PC repair, networking, and phone support.

    PHP/SQL web developer by day (and night)!

    I'd really love to do contract work from now on and not work for anyone, taking the plunge is a big move though, eek!

    Yeah the freelance stuff definitely pays well, it's just a case of going off on your own when you've still got bills to pay.

    You are gonna love this...

    I am a manager at a collection agency. I have a team of people that work under me making calls to people who are behind on their credit cards, more specifically their capital one credit cards. The really beautiful part is that i dont have to shit in my own backyard. I work here in beautiful canada, and we call americans about their bad debts. It doesnt get any funny than that (as you can see i dont take my job very seriously)
