    Depends on the day of the week and time of day.

    Sunday morning: church organist
    Sunday night: R.N. (newborn ICU and Labor & Delivery)
    Monday morning: sleep
    Monday afternoon: music teacher (piano & voice)
    Tuesday morning: day off, usually
    Tuesday afternoon: music teacher
    Tuesday evening: accompanist for Community Chorus (was director last year)
    Wednesday morning: volunteer in the music department at the middle school and H.S.
    Wednesday afternoon: music teacher
    Wednesday evening: organist, church choir practice
    Thursday: day off, house cleaning, shopping, etc. I also belong to a writers' critique group that meets every other Thursday
    Friday night: R.N.
    Saturday morning: sleep
    Saturday night: occasional shift at the hospital

    I also own a photography business, doing mostly copy and restoration of old B&W photographs. That has to fit into my "days off" or any time I can get to the computer or home studio while the kitties are napping. They love to help.

    I am a sales associate (textbooks), almost full-time. I'm also a full-time MS student, in education. The eventual goal is literacy intervention K-8 with ESL kids and special ed, but for a few years I will be a K-6 classroom teacher while I get all the add-ons and classes and pass all the tests.

    SO is working on his PhD right now.

    I'm currently unemployed sadly. I just graduated with a Master's of Public Health degree in August with an emphasis in environmental and occupational health. I would really like to work for a state agency where I can make a difference in peoples' lives working with something such as childhood lead poisoning. This summer I worked on a environmental health assessment project with a state agency (unpaid grrrrr). The whole point of it was to make up scenarios that would happen in real life and then calculate the theoretical cancer risk associated with the scenarios to see if this place should be considered a Superfund site. Sadly they weren't hiring anyone anytime soon, because I really enjoyed it. I hated the class that dealt with that kind of stuff when I took it, but actually doing it was quite enjoyable!

    I work for the USPS and I hate it. I started back to school this past September on a journey to earn at least a masters in history. I'm not sure what I'm going to do after I earn my bachelors, I may go into teaching while I work on the rest of my education. I want to eventually teach at the college level.

    As of right now I also want to double minor in anthropology and archaeology, but that could change.
