    Hello everyone,

    Just wondering what you guys do for a living, beyond the world of TT :) What brings home the bacon? Or if your still in school, what do you wanna do.

    Im in my third year of college and majoring in actuarial science, I enjoy it very much and cant wait to graduate. I'd be interested to see if there are any actuaries on this board.

    So c'mon guys, lets hear it!

    :shock: :shock: :shock: How is this possible?




    ;) Kidding. I'm a student as well. I used to run a tennis shop and was in the business for close to five years. Now I just do school (mathematics.) I hope to get hired by the local wind energy firms(Zuzlon) and until then my wife is the sole "bread winner" and she does a bang up job at it.

    Interesting – I went to boarding school in Thorpe, Surrey -- and we had the option of catching the train to London from either Virginia Water or Staines. Staines was more popular with students because (at the time) it had the only McDonald’s for many miles.

    Im in my last year of high school, with no clue about what I want to do when I leave. I also work part time in a sports shop and have had my writing published in a british magazine called DRUMMER.

    Edit: I also have a full time occupation of being an Interista.

    I'm a job tester. This year I have tested jobs such as call centre operator, data entry clerk, labourer and racquet stringer. I currently work at a beachside tennis centre though running the desk, kiosk, coffee machine, stringing machine, odd coaching now and then, you name it :D It's really quite enjoyable believe it or not.

    But next year, Accounting student.
