Student? office worker? Indulge...
(but as I said before, it depends who's asking)
I even do over-time
I am also a consultant who advises 'clients' on how 'good' their system/solution is '.'
occasionally i might produce documents to explain how a particular finance system works and basically try to prove to the client (despite misconceptions and red herrings and management reports that just report what they want to hear) how much the systems that they have got does what they really want and how much it doesnt......sort of
i was in manchester mondsay tues weds then i got sent to a conference in london on thurs
is going on here?
As long as you're on a Mac i'll accept full responsibility, i'm washing my hands of any PC stuff though
I'm also going to blame you if any of my part 3 research doesn't end up in the game, even though that's not your area!
Can't wait till it drops through the door. Goodbye life.
but my heart's not in it.
I'm a postgrad, anyway. Doesn't have the same ring to it as I'M A STOODENT, but I did get a lie-in today.
I could have made this up in my head though,
I'm 24. That definitely makes me mature then. In your face, immature little undergrads.
and I finished my undergrad in 2007. 'sgotta count for something, no?
have spent the last two days stuffing letters into envelopes #notwhereIsawmyselfat27
this the appropriate place please.
GIVE ME A JOB.
i've got some money I had saved up for a rainy day.
it's just a terrible joke.
I got one of those clear dome/bubble brolllies which i tested out whilst swimming up brick lane in the middle of a rainstorm last weekend. Whilst it kept the very middle of my body dry, my extremeties were sodden. Despite the umbrella being vastly wider than me. I think some technician needs shooting?
(I'm so glad you don't live in Manchester now ;))
(now who's going to get killed. EEeeep.)
"my legs hurt"
and part-time procrastinator
I try to help people know more about plants and shit (but i really only tend to do that in the field)
on a frequent basis
I'm a chemical engineer.
I'M QUITE EXCITED ABOUT THE UPCOMING POSSIBILITY OF BECOMING A PERMANENT ADMINISTRATOR RATHER A TEMPORARY ADMINISTRATOR
FOUR MORE YEARS
Is anyone up for living in a world without machines and living off the land and being at one with nature? You know, eating berries and what mother nature provides and getting spanked on magic mushies and moonshine? That would be good, wouldn't it? Creaky?
and I'm currently suffering the same heady mix of excitement/despair at the switch from being temporary to permanent admin.
I'd suggest forming a club, but that would be one shitty, shitty club.
and I'm not even converting, I'm having to apply for it. It's just "At last! No more timesheets! Proper holidays! More money!" is tempered by "I've already fucking worked here for two fucking years and it's really fucking dull1!!!!!11".
you're 26. Stop worrying, you have your whole life ahead of you.
I'm heading out of the department at least. Which is good, as this department won't exist soon thanks to the impending CUTTAGEDDON.
I haven't had a real holiday from work in 3 years.
I hate this thread, I didn't want to think about this shit on a Friday afternoon.
YOU'RE ME. But younger. I hate you?
So only marginal hate? I can live with that.
aka OFFICE DRONE
It's no coincidence that the word ANAL appears in my arse job.
but I try and go easy on it in my spare time.
editor and musician (not at the same time)
I'd quite like a change, but im comfortable. Too comfortable.
specialise mainly in the brain but I like to muck in wherever I can. I did a kidney transplant this morning.
told me what a cadaver was (you don't want to know!) so I just stole a dummy from top man and used that.
I really like my job, but then I get to do other fun stuff aswell. SPREADSHEETS!
Can't spell my own occupation :-(
it's a pretty good life.
PAYS OK BUT THE HOURS ARE DREADFUL
and a mature student is someone over 25, thank god. "mature student" = "practically dead, and why the fuck are you still at university anyway, get a proper job!"
I, erm, manage risk, by monitoring incoming bets, changing prices, offering people smaller bets when they try to put bigger ones on that I'm not happy with, that sort of thing; any spare time I have I spend betting and calling the people who do my job, but for other companies, "wankers" because by and large they do their jobs properly.
Can you win me some money then?
Wearing Dominos pizza sandwich boards outside their new outlets
For one I saw the other day that read "Honk if your hungry"?
HONK IF MY HUNGRY WHAT?
I also do PR for a venue/club (I hand out flyers to other students) and I occasionally do some child-minding (I babysit once every 3 weeks).
I've been busier.
and also do evening shifts in a+e at the same hospital as a bureaucratic pain in the ass. I get to harry docs and nurses, it's fun.
But i'm also a qualified journo, so looking for work in that field.
doing rental and retail of DVDs and computer games. Pretty enjoyable.
for people with learning difficulties
I could say I was an agricultural technician or that I make my living from sex, but its just farming.
....a musician.... full time.
feels good, man
....which prob accounts for the large amount of spelling mistakes...
Easiest job ever.
I saved a child from a car and pushed some criminals infront of it
