    MH - thanks! I was avoiding starting my next project....

    What do you do for a living (work)?
    I am a nonprofit development officer.  Fundraiser. I work with major donors and manage planned giving.

    Did you go to school or a training program that specialized in your field of work?
    Much to my father's chagrin....no.  I went to school for communications to work in the entertainment industry.  After college I moved to LA and followed the dream for 4 years.  I was successful, but decided it wasn't the life for me.

    If you went to/graduated college, what was your degree?
    BS in Communications and Media Management, minor in Art History (had enough core classes for a major degree, but didn't have enough gen ed requirements. I'm sad, I wish I had been able to get an Art History degree.)

    Do you have a bff at work?
    Yes, I have two!  I work with a small group of people who are all the same age, so its fun.

    If you didn't have to worry about $ and insurance, would you quit your job today and never look back?
    Absolutely.  ABSOLUTELY.

    What's the best part of your job (lunch break doesn't count)? Any perks?
    Any time I'm down or something crappy happens, I can go downstairs play with dogs and cats.

    If you didn' t have to worry about $, what would you do all day?  Work? Vounteer? Sleep?  Anything structured?
    I would be a writer, a mother, and docent at an art museum.

     Kinda, but not really. 

    If you went to/graduated college, what was your degree
     Video Communications with a minor in Photography

    Do you have a bff at work
     More like a work spouse

    If you didn't have to worry about $ and insurance, would you quit your job today and never look back?
     Probably not.  I really like my job-- the only thing I don't like about it is that I'll probably never make more money then I do now.

    What's the best part of your job (lunch break doesn't count)?
     I get to ride in a helicopter.  I am never in rush hour traffic.  I can sleep at work.  I watch TV at work.  I PLANNED MY ENTIRE WEDDING at work.  Pretty much everything about this job is awesome.

    If you didn' t have to worry about $, what would you do all day?  Work? Vounteer? Sleep?  Anything structured?
     Two chicks at  once.  (Office Space?  Anyone??)  Seriously though, I would probably refinish old homes.  I love making ugly things pretty again.

    I'm a little late on this...

    What do you do for a living (work)?
    I'm a scientific reviewer for a federal agency

    Did you go to school or a training program that specialized in your field of work?
    Yes - lots and lots of school

    If you went to/graduated college, what was your degree?
    BS in Molecular Bio, Biochem, and Bioinformatics; PhD in Pharmacology

    Do you have a bff at work?
    Not a true bff but I have a good group of friends here, one of which I went to grad school with in Philly

    If you didn't have to worry about $ and insurance, would you quit your job today and never look back?
    I'd love to say yes but I would get bored after a few weeks.  I also spent the first 28 years of my life in school - I'm certainly not burned out from work yet!

    What's the best part of your job (lunch break doesn't count)? Any perks?
    I work for the govt so there are really no perks (no free coffee, no water cooler, no ordering supplies from Staples whenever you want, etc).  But I do have a relatively low stress job that's incredibly flexible and allows me to work from home 2 days a week. 

    If you didn' t have to worry about $, what would you do all day?  Work? Vounteer? Sleep?  Anything structured?
    If I didn't work, I'd probably shop, do yoga, and watch way too much tv
