    A1. I do web design/presentation tidbits for a mortgage company. I think I love looking at design a bit more than designing itself.

    A2. I don't know. As Yoko once said: "I'm just doin' it!"

    i run the phonathon program in the annual fund for a college in oakland. i love it. granted it gets slow some times and the entire program is new (which can be stressful at times), it's perfect for me.

    when i was starting my last semester of college a year ago i didn't think i'd be here today, but looking back it makes perfect sense.

    Right now I'm a part time sales associate for Hot Topic. I only took the job for seasonal help, but damn those folks just love me to pieces and asked me to say on. Now I've been asked to apply for the pt. asst. manager position. Whoa. I wasn't even looking for work, they literally recruited me and so this is all very...sudden. But for the time being this is where I'm at.

    Oh and I'm also a mom.

    I've never been one of those who sees themselves in the future. I never pictured myself as a mom or in any particular career field. You'd think by my age I'd have a handle on this growing up business, but nah. If I had my choice though I really think I'd like to be a hair stylist. Maybe one day I'll find myself there.

    I work in a boat factory rolling fiberglass all day.

    No, I am not where I thought I would be at this point in my life. When I joined the Marines I really thought I would be there for 30 years, but, life happens

    I'm teacher/tech. specialist. I'm pretty much where I thought I'd be. I'm finally ready to go back for my Master's though, and then move into admin., I think.

    Im a waitress. And no I did not think I would be doing this today. I wanted to be an accountant or a dealer. But dont get me wrong I love what I do.

    I am also a mom.

    I'm unemployed right now so I guess my job is to find a job. NO this is not where I thought I would be at 27. I figured I would be on my way up the corporate ladder at this point.

    I'm a manufacturing manager for an electronics company. I hate my job and am looking for a new job. This is not where I thought I would be. I would like to go back to school and get a degree in architechure or landscape architecture.

    I'm an administrative assistant to a dean at a community college.

    I am most definitely not where I thought I would be, considering I went through and graduated from chiropractic college. I couldn't get a business going and keep a roof over our heads, so I took a customer service job as a temporary move. I'm still here, albeit in a better position, five years later.

    I'm a shipper/receiver/stocker/order picker/quality control person. One head, many hats.
    I briefly got into my "expected" career of inventory control (I'm a numbers freak and quite anal) but due to a move, I had to start at square one.

    Mom, Wife, Friend, Bus.Own., No, I should have been singing long ago and finding a way to put my lyrics and music to paper.

    I am an educational researcher and this isnt really where I thought I would be. The 9-5 isnt really for me, I want more freedom, I want to actually live my life.

    I am a "Market Research Interviewer" (which means I work at a call center and am one of those people who does surveys over the phone...so when you get a call...be nice, it could be me :-) )

    I am definitley not doing what I thought I'd be doing.

    I'd rather be teaching English overseas.
