    1) Manager of Administration at the company that my dad started in 1967 (he died in '99) 2) I like it because it's a piece of my dad.  I don't like it because it's not what I wanted to do necessarily.  but it's convenient, and lenient (didn't mean to rhyme) when it comes to my son and future daughter. 3)my whole life  as a slave child haha, but this job since 2006. 4)photographer perhaps. or pediatrician.  CSI minus the becoming a state trooper first. 5) no.  my job is way to convenient, and accomodating.  and to me, money is key right now with 2 children. and I commute 10 minutes every morning, and brandons daycare is up the hill from work.

    1.) I'm a CPA (sooo fun!) at a public accounting firm. 2.) I like it sometimes. I think there's very few people who LOVE their jobs and every job is going to have its ups and downs, but until the economy picks up again, I'm happy just to be getting a paycheck every 2 weeks :)3.) I've been working there full-time since September 2006, but I had 2 interships at the same firm.4.) I honestly don't know. I would say a teacher, but I don't have the patience to deal with kids. When I was in high school, I wanted to be a marine biologist, so I'll go with that one.5.) At this point in time, no, I wouldn't take it. With saving for the wedding and a house, taking a steep paycut wouldn't be practical. And my commute now is pretty crappy and I'm not looking to do that forever.

    1.) What do you do? Managing Editor for a bunch of local magazines2.) Do you like/love/despise it? A little bit of all three. But mostly like, but sometimes wish for a change of pace. 3.) How long have you been working there? 7 years at the company, at this job for 4?  I think 4. 4.) What's your dream job? I don't even know anymore... I've been pursuing the editor thing since I was like 13, so it's hard to start thinking outside that box, but i sometimes consider other things ...5.) If you were offered your dream job, would you take it if it meant getting a low salary OR have a terrible commute? maybe.

    1) Can't share because I don't know if it would cause me to get banned. 2) Like/Love it depends on the day and the season (busy/slow) 3) 2.5 years 4) I'm pretty much in my dream job though I would like to have a little more freelance work in the future so I could work from home. 5) I drive into the city to West 18th Street daily which is not a fun commute at all but I do like my profession so its worth it.

    1.  Lawyer 2.  Like paycheck, hate the politics of it, am eh on the actual work I do 3.  5 years 4.  Heiress5.  For me, low salary =/= dream job.  And probably long commute =/= dream job.  I would want to live near my job.  And if my job isn't near somewhere I want to live, it probably isn't my dream job.

    1. Admin. assistant/jr. accountant for a teeny-tiny CPA firm. 2, Like it. I went to school for biology and always hated math but numbers make sense to me now. 3. It was just a year in mid-September. 4. Not sure, I will probably go into the family business (assisted living) within a few years. I've worked there before and loved it, but I would have to take a greater role with more responsibility to do it in the future. 5. I'd take the terrible commute, although my current 10.8 mile commute is wonderful.
