Recommended Posts

Not sure if there's a thread like this already...my searches did not turn up anything...

Calling all unis and supers! What do you do irl? Leave a comment below! (yes, recent counts)

What do the 1% do in real life, and are you purple at it?

Meter reader, dunno if it's the same in Murica/EU, but basically in Australia you have a power and water meter for every house that measures your usage. I walk around, read them and input them into a handheld reading device and then a week later you get a power and water bill.

Certainly not exciting but it keeps me fit (5-15km's per day,) money is good and I work whenever I want

Not that I consider myself anywhere good, but my recent shows a bit of purple... so... 

Managing position in retail services (basically, along with 7 other people, we deal with our boss and the 200+ employees working in our department/helping us from time to time). And part-time student in mechanical engineering.

Couple years ago I got a degree in political science, out of sheer interest for it. I was always a fanatic of history in general, and poli-sci kinda ties historical and political analysis together to make sense of world events so it was attractive for me. Not great for jobs, but I guess it made me superunicum at understanding politics. Oh and it also made me hopelessly cynical about this entire "democratic process" thing.

I've since worked in various lowly computer tech jobs as that was my other passion, but without any official education in the subject matter it was eventually impossible to get a pay raise beyond 15$/hour. So I've recently gone back to school to get a degree in network engineering and eventually maybe possibly have a real career.
