Doc- Corporate Lawyer? LOL I must seem soulless...it's Rucifer not Lucifer! haha jk.


Actually I'm a college student who at the moment works the front desk of a hotel. The other day there was this big, funny guy that was from texas (a guy who you could tell could prolly squat 2 or 3 of me) but looks like he might indulge in cheeseburgers every so often :wink: . He was quite funny and witty tho- Hoosegow you didn't happen to visit ohio recently did ya? :lol:

I can't remember whether you're from the UK or not. If so, then you probably know of who I work for, 'cause we're one of the best in the UK, destroying the competition, and in the process of taking over the world (ok we've having a crack at Oz and possibly the States and we've not 'destroyed' anyone but I would say we're a market leader) :grin:

(above is reference to the travel technology side, which is the core of the business, not the marketing side, which is what I do)

I'm a college student, graduate with my marketing degree in the spring at Ball State. I work in the new recreation center they're building, so at least I know I'll like the atmosphere I'm in until I graduate!

You guys are pretty accurate with me.

I'm a part-time ESL teacher and part-time trainer at two different places (one private gym, one community center-style one), I've got my own private training clients, and I do some odd stuff on the side - IT, freelance writing, tutoring, etc. But I'm still only training people part-time.

Shouldn't this be in general chatter?

I'm responsible for grants reports and applications, and I also get myself involved in alot of science communication (web content, annual reports, newsletters, posters etc.). The non-profit organization I work for coordinates international neuroscience research.

As a hobby I make jewelry (I wanted to be a goldsmith when I was little but my parents made me get a "proper" education) :)
So you're not a 25 year old figure athlete? :frown:

Just graduated high school; attending college in the fall.

Managed a [illegal] gatorade service for 3 years during high school, but went bankrupt when the economic depression hit.

A bit of everything Helena, but mainly on the jazz tip though.
