Hey, guys! :) With finals about to finish up, I grew curious as to what everyone does for a living / is studying to become - whether you're majoring in something, work as this thing, or aspire to work as this thing, talk about what you like to do best and how you want to excel in it! I'm sure we can get some pretty neat answers in here!

I'm a Computer Science major; ever since I was little, I've really loved computers and have wanted to know how they worked. I love making things, and making programs and websites kind of fill me up with a sense of strong accomplishment when they do what they're supposed to (like the auto-Yearbook!) I want to go deeper into Computer Science and learn how Operating Systems work, how the hardware communicates with one another, all about how servers work, all about different kinds of languages and how they're made; I like to make and develop websites the most, but I'm seriously excited to just learn all about computers, haha. :D What about you guys?

I'm only 16, but I've wished to become a writer since I was very very very stupidly young. I was eight and writing short stories that kids grades ahead of me would be hard pressed to write. Also, animal sciences have always interested me very much; that's similarly tempting, not like I know what will ultimately stick. >->

:) Well, sounds like you've got a pretty good dream! I feel like if someone works hard enough, they can accomplish what they want; it's hard, and might come with a few sacrifices, but if you're serious about what you want to do, you'll find a way to do that in the end. Best of luck!

My major is called Media Arts & Science -- and it encompasses everything from web design, programming, 3D modelling, video and audio, video games, and more! I'm more focused on web design & development, but I have dabbled in a couple of other things. I'm not really a "hard science" type of person, and the design aspect interests me more than the technical stuff (I'm not one of those people whom programming comes easily to). I am not as good as Sunny yet, but I'm learning. :P

I was previously a psychology major, but while the subject was interesting, I wasn't interested in a career in that field for various reasons. However, the work that I'm able to do in my current major really motivates me. Rather than be frustrated when faced with problems, I get excited about tackling them. It's all been pretty positive. :)

I'm hopefully going into Translating and Interpreting.

Languages see pretty much the only thing I've wanted to do for the majority of my life and the only thing I actually feel like I understand. I'm doing German at the moment, Swedish after that and I haven't decided on the third. But from next year I'll be taking two classes at the same time, hopefully I can manage it :)

I'm studying to be a dog trainer :B
Used to want to be a vet - didn't do well enough in Science to do that.
Also dropped out of school when I was 16, that along with a few other things meant no Uni for me.. so ten years on I'm studying online and hoping we can move to somewhere where I can shadow trainers/behaviourists and assist them!

Oooo, fun topic! You guys are all gonna rock your dreams & fields of study :D

As for me, I've been working in a call center for a large specialty veterinary hospital for the past 2 3/4 years. It's a pretty interesting job with good benefits and decent pay, but not something I intend to do for the rest of my life. Eventually, once I figure out specifically what I wanna do, I'll go back to school. Right now I'm considering biology, but would like to narrow that field down to something more specific c:

I am on my second year of working towards a Bachelor degree in 3d Animation and Movie Production, focusing on Concept Art and Animatics, though I do not know what I will end up doing, tbh. Many decisions to be made for next year, where I will move from Norway to England to complete my bachelor degree and possibly pick up a Master at the British University. So, kinda artsy, but there's a lot of computer technology etc too.

On the side, whenever I am in my hometown, I work in the main Alarm and Notification centre for a major oil firm, which is fun enough, I guess! ^^

I recently (this year) completed my Bachelor of Sciences in Animal Management, which basically means I am qualified to care for all the animals. I can work in most any field of animal care except veterinary. My aim was always to go into the animal industry after I got the degree, but so far I have been unsuccessful. My big dream is to be a zoo keeper, though I would also love to work in kennels or doggy daycare.

Currently I am a supervisor at a bargain store called Buyology. It's not glamorous, I am the customer services girl and I get a lot of the rude or difficult customers, but it pays the bills, sorta.

I'm in my Bachelors degree studying Equine related degrees such as Equine Business Management and will possibly double major in a Vet tech degree. Also planning on getting my dog grooming certification and farrier certification while I'm here :) I want to take some writing and art class on the side because those are two things outside of souls that I don't give myself enough time to pursue and I want get better at.

My background is in traditional painting, and I currently work as a freelancer - illustration, storyboards, the like!

The work I do isn't fulfilling to me, but I'm not sure how I want to commit my time. I used to think that I could draw things for money and it would be enough. I realized I'd rather make money doing something ordinary, and spend my artistic energy on things I actually want to draw. I'm sort of in this artistic limbo right now, so I'm using it as an opportunity to explore. I may go back to school for sculpture. Whatever happens, I'm glad it's a journey! x)

My major is English, and my minor is Professional Writing. I'm hoping to take some side minor classes in the arts because I've always wanted to draw, but never had the time or patience for practice - so if its for HOMEWORK, I would have to, right? Hoping that will get me into the swing of things because I'm a Master Procrastinator. Also, majoring in English because writing is what I'm good at and I hope to either become an editor or a copy editor for like a publishing company or something one day.

I am interested in coding and web development and stuff, but unfortunately my school doesn't offer classes for that unless I'm majoring in Graphics Design, which I am not T.T

My biggest dream is to become a book writer, but I don't even know where to start with that D: I recently read a few memoirs and think that I can write about my struggle with my mom's alcohol addiction when I was a teenager (a very bad teenager at that, due to circumstances). Though, of course, I don't even know where I can start with that either. I think I need to get a little further into my major before I can get some direction with that.

Currently, I don't work-work because no time due to college and English major homework (omg), but I do own an online retail business that is run over both eBay and Amazon platforms, in which I make enough to support myself (I live with my mom still) and sustain living.

So there's that :)

I have been pretty indecisive about what I want to do. I wanted to be a veterinarian up till I had my daughter, and then I decided I wanted to be a neonatal nurse (the ones that take care of the itty babies). But I had issues getting my homework done at the time because my daughter was still really little. So I switched to Graphic Design hoping it would be more like... Teaching how to draw on the computer. It wasn't.

I've been serving samples at Kroger and then Sam's for a year now. But I decided once I have some of my student loans from my -previous- attempts paid off, I'm going to pursue veterinary school again. I may possibly specialize, down the road, in equine studies, or I might just stick with pet animals. That's a ways off, but equine care was my original dream.

Biology all the way! I've never been all that good with exacta sciences (evento though they are f*cking awesome), and both muy parents were biologists, so the interest on learning more about life and how it works has been a constant in muy life. I've also considered studying art, languages and even chemistry. But none of them involve touching little thingies and holding animales and planting stuff *w*

I am currently in my fourth, final, year of a Bachelor degree in Music with honors in Education. I've wanted to be a music teacher since I was in elementary school so this has always just been what I wanted XD. I mean I spent some time thinking I would be a Vet but I am awful as sciences! Originally I was planning on teaching high school voice classes but I've realized now that I just adore spending time singing and playing games with the little kids and introducing instruments to grades 6-8's.

I was also planning on getting a minor in English but had to give that up when I decided to go for the little kids and needed different qualifications, which all had to be met within a year because the teachers colleges only look at your year 1-3 courses :|. Not to mention I have to overload every year for my program already.

After this year I'm heading to teachers college to get my Bachelor of Education which will be a two year program as of next year, instead of only one ;_; (more loans for me). I'm hoping to get my qualifications to teach kindergarten through grade 8 so that if anything pops up, be it home room grade 1 or music grade 6-8, I will be able to apply for it.

SA/DBA. aircraft logs and records. aircraft maintenance data. administrative and clerical nonsense.

we, as a whole, repair and maintain boeing airplanes.

i would like to work toward emt certification and perhaps becoming a paramedic on my own time. it's just difficult working around my primary occupation right now.

but i've got bills to pay.

I went to college for biology as a pre-med but abandoned pre-med middle of my sophomore year when I convinced my mother I hated medicine that it would probably ruin me emotionally. So now I'm a biology research major - though I still kinda hate and resent it because I was forced into this major. It's been pretty nice lately knowing that I can do whatever with the degree.

But my side major / favorite major is History, which I actually finished at the end of my junior year (aka at the start of this year because I dilly dallied on my thesis :B). Always been fascinated with history, if my historical fiction shelf is any indication >>

I think my goal is to at least write a book in my lifetime and get it published, but I need to be able to provide for myself / family ergo biology major. Oh well.

My degree was technically in web development, although I kind of made some things up as I went, including some game design classes and other things along the way, substituting in for things I definitely wouldn't need. I also took a bunch of computer science/programming classes for a computer science minor. It probably would have been my major, except that it was called Applied Math and Computer Science and yeah... I'm godawful at math so that wasn't gonna work. I'd like to be a user interface designer of some kind, I think, but what I really want is to feel like what I'm doing is worthwhile, such as be the webmaster for several animal shelters or something like that.

I currently work in IT as the way underpaid administrator of a document management system called Microsoft SharePoint and I hate every minute of it. I've thought about starting my own business baking cheesecakes but I'm afraid turning a hobby into a job isn't a good idea for me. I guess I've kind of hit my quarter life crisis and don't know what I want to do anymore. Dx lol. I have all sorts of ideas, but none of them are something I can make a living off of.

I make websites and do code-y things. I used to make websites for a fashion brand, but now I make websites for a digital agency. Well, right now, at this very moment, technically I do both -- but the fashion brand I am leaving and I have about two or three days left. No degree, dropped out of community college.

I'm a wildlife science major with an interest in behavioral biology. I specifically want to work with animals in captive situations (i.e a zoo or conservation center) and create enrichment programs for the animals so that they aren't bored all day long. For a short time during the summer I totally got a job working with wolves and wolf-dogs in a conservation center. I loved it there! I had a great time and I took lots of photos.

I was a Political Science/Comparative Lit major with a French minor in college. Graduated a year early with an absurdly high GPA and absolutely no idea what I wanted to do with my life. Applied to Teach for America on a whim one day and, after a whirlwind application process, ended up moving to New Orleans about 2 weeks after my 21st birthday to teach Secondary English.

Taught in a failing, closing school my first year - that was a trip. I've got many stories, including one in which I - a 115 pound girl from suburban Massachusetts - split up a fight and got my hand broken. It wasn't all stuff like that, but it was definitely the hardest year of my life. After my school closed, I moved to a high school teaching a similar demographic. I still teach English, but it's a lot more my style.

Basically, if any of y'all are high schoolers... That's mad weird.

Currently going through an accelerated Bachelor's Degree program with my major being Game Art & Design, exclusively working towards the gaming industry but I could do many a thing with my degree. I started September of this year and I should be finished in 29-30 months (so ballpark early to mid-2017 graduation).

I also wish to publish a Graphic Novel independently on the side, but that's just a pet project of mine.

I've had a lot of people tell me I could be a tattoo artist or an interpreter too, but the latter isn't a desirable career path for me.

School is my life and it probably will be until I'm 35 or 40. When I was younger I was dead set on being a Vet but this year that sure changed. I was accepted into a selective Clinical Rotations class for high schoolers who want to get into the health professions. I spend half of my school day at a technical education center and, two days a week, at the local hospital. Its supper cool and I've learned basically what a lab tech or a patient care tech does, but I get no certifications for it. One of my first rotations was to a vet office. I saw a dog get put down on the first day and I realized I could not emotionally handle that. Nope, never again. I've since decided I want to become a doctor. I saw surgery last month and it didn't phase me a bit. It was fabulous, even. I have several family members who have specializations in plastic surgery and they want me to do that, so thats my most likely path.

For now though I'm just working on getting through Junior year and applying for college. Senior year I'm going to get a certification in phlebotomy so i can start gaining experience in the clinical setting. I'm probably going to major in Spanish language and literature or Hispanic studies and minor in biology (To get my med school prerequisites done). I have no backup plan though. If i can't get into medical school here, which I sure hope I will, I'll go back to the home country and apply there. If that doesn't work I'll just become a wandering vagabond or by chance and the grace of the whole universe i may become an ageless force of nature.

I got through two out of three years in university studying for a Bachelors of Science in Zoology with focus on animal behavior which I absolutely loved every second of it and then at the end of my second year I had to drop out due to financial strain and some stress related things. I moved back home with my parents where I managed to secure a job working in a factory that my dad was a haulage driver for. Three years there whilst I tried to decide what to do and to save money up, I hated everything about that place and those three years were the worst I've ever spent working.

Early last year I've immigrated to the USA and have only just received my GreenCard and permission to work after 9 months. Now I'm back in the same position, I have no idea what I want to do except some vague feeling of wanting to care for animals.

My own mind is pushing me to take the first job I can get regardless of what it is so that Temo and I can begin to pay off our debt. Every day I sit here I'm feeling more and more worthless for being such a drain on Temo.

I have my Bachelor's in social work and just had a job interview for a job as a QMRP, Qualified Mental Retardation Professional. It went really well and I was offered the job contingent on my transcripts so I am hoping and praying everything comes through. It will be my first "professional" job where I would be able to use everything I learned with my degree. I would be working with six boys with extreme autism in a residential setting, setting goals for them and working with their families to help them improve in different ways in their lives. I have always worked at human services places in the past that have treated me like crap and used me without taking advantage of my degree..and I am so behind paying on everything. This job will change my life completely, so I'm really hoping. My guy has a good job but I have been feeling really worthless these last couple months for not being able to contribute myself other than cleaning the house and cooking.
