Kentona, you tell the best dad jokes.
How do you like bartending? How did you get into it?
Doing a certificate in asian studies, more precisely on China and Japan, while working in a shop where we sell stamps and coins. My freetime is devoted to my RPG, photography and scriptwriting.

Dude you didn't go to "school"?

You have better luck than me. I'm all certified and shit but I don't have the time to get a job during the semester. : (
I teach english at a high school and three kindergartens.

It's nice for now. Lots of freedom and good conditions.
I hold the luxurious positions of class "guy who mutters to himself a lot and laughs at the wrong things" and class "guy who doesn't ever seem to complain" at my IB school. I'm satisfied with that.

Right now, I'm working towards my PhD in Chemistry. Hopefully I'll be able to make people call me a doctor in a few years time.

Lost ambition for me. I made it as far as 2nd year Masters Chemistry but I decided to stop because of how boring it got with physical chemistry and organo-arrows. I don't want a career in that tbh but I respect people that'll preach chemistry with so much enthusiasm (main reason why I chose to study it).

Right now I'm thinking of taking the retakes but Quantum Mechanics and Organic Synthesis is failing me so I'm looking at a career somewhere else. Not many options though as I chose Physics, Chemistry and Biology for A Levels. Probably will go to healthcare as I enjoy taking care of sick people...

'school'? i went to university... actually i had a "real" job for a while, but the company closed down this month so i went back to the part time bartending/serving job i've always had whenever i need a quick buck.

if you mean bartending school- no, i didn't do that... i hear its fun and useful though :) (useful for bartender or partyanimal... lol)

My PhD is in Organic Chemistry, and I love curly arrows. Makes things so much simpler than what the Theoretical Chemists do. Luckily, I actually work in a Biochemistry research group, so it's not all about pure synthesis (which I would hate)

Edit: Try genetics, it's really growing quickly (if you can handle the criticim of genetics from religous/animal rights groups, that is).

I am tired of Earth. These people. I am tired of being caught in the tangle of their lives.

Do this ---> Healthcare Information Technology

it's going to EXPLODE
Hey guess what? That IS what I am doing!
I work retail full-time in several postions that are not manager. I then go home and rot with my family in urban decay. Life is shit. right now.

I was originally attending college in Indiana for DMA, or Animation. My lack of work ethic did me in and now I am but a hollow shell with no passions.

Yeah, I meant "School" = bartending school and School (without quotation marks) as university : ).

Bartending school is pretty sweet, though. I did a cram course, one week. It hurt my brain, but it was a fun experience.

Now, to actually... get a job... that whole university thing is getting in the way, though.
I'm a lazy teenager, though I hope to one day be a lazy author. :D

EDIT: This summer I'm going to try to get a job at like a Blockbuster or bookstore or movie theater or something.

That's awesome man. I've always wanted to write a book of my own.

Hey, what I tell everyone is; you can! It's like babysteps really. Each day do a little, so little as a sentence will do it. Before long you'll be doing paragraphs and chapters at a time. We post on forums and chat all the time, words spewing from our fingertips... Just turn those words to your story, and don't be afraid to fail... that's what revision / second drafts are for!

Bubblegum Wishes in my signature. ;) Supplies are running thin though.
