    I am a Linguist.

    I take squiggles and, fueled by copious amounts of caffeine, tell people what they mean. Then, the people come back either with "Thanks," or "Why is your translation different from Google Translate's?"

    Eventually, they toss me some coins which I then plug back into the coffee fund.

    It's a vicious cycle.

    This is a very good question, I'm not quite sure what I do for work. I know I show up here and they pay me, but usually I just work on my class work or snooping about the forums.

    Maybe I should go ask someone what I do. Wouldn't be weird after being here for about 5 months would it?

    Nah... Best to stay under the radar. If you start asking, then they may start asking, and the next thing you know? They might actually start expecting... stuff.

    I own a small real estate agency with my mom, in Kuwait. Few years back I met an irresistible Englishman, and bam, ended up moving to London a couple of years ago. That didn't leave me much choice work wise, and so we decided to expand the business to the UK. The big, civilized world is a little scary, but we appear to have found a comfy niche for ourselves and things are rolling smoothly. My other half is an IT professional(geek!), works as an infrustructure manager for a company that calculates ods for bettings of all sort, from soccer, through horse racing, to tennis.

    I always wanted to run a homey coffee shop, full of books to read,comfy sofas, good music and awesome coffee - didn't give up on that dream just yet :inlove:

    Look into unity. Cross platform builds in one button click.

    I irradiate people! Well actually I ultrasound them too, but it sounds so much neater to say I blast people with radiation! I can do x-ray, CT, and ultrasound. Though I let my mammogram certification slip years ago since I mostly work nights and weekends now.

    Never give up on that dream. I didn't, and I couldn't be happier anywhere else. Best feeling in the world!
