Bit of a crap thread and I apologise for that.

I've noticed that there are alot of people on here in the daytime, during working hours.

Out of interest what do herp lovers do for a living?

Are we all thicko's like myself, or do we have solicitors, scientists and doctors on here?

WOW, your career sounds great! Always wanted to work in media, thought "Assistant Ed" would keep me happy, but i am not using the skills i learned at college, like reseach and analysis. Spent so much time on quant qual analysis that it seems a shame not to use it now. Still, I have only been out of study for a matter of months. still plenty time. unfortunately, i got my lot in this current position, as there is nowhere else to move to within the company coz its tiny.

same with our lot.. there is the boss.. then there is me... then there is whoever i have employed at the time...

if i can do it all myself, i don't employ other people basically..

i actually wanted to be a vet, but B at a-level physics was not happening! so i did 3 years getting a degree in Geology and Zoology instead..

natural history museum wanted me after that, but the pay was negligable, so i did 2 years Sales in the london telecoms market in 1996-1997, then droped out to become a "clubber" for a while.. got out of that lifestyle and into marketing.. started here in 1998, and still here now...

its ok yeah and it pays for the 500+ animals i keep at home!

lol, good stuff. I never really got the chance to relax, like a gap year or anything. And i dont want to return to study, but Im thinking i might have to. Not much opportunity in this area, and im not really qualified or experienced enough to seek employment in the big cities yet. But i'll get there....
