    I teach kids, but through a private tuition company which is great because no work to take home and mark!

    I work as a museum pedagogue, basically meaning I'm responsible for school programmes, oversee everything around our guided tours and help with research around our exhibitions. The museum is an historical mine and world heritage site, so I spend quite a lot of my time underground. I no longer have to climb down a rope in a 30 m shaft to change lightbulbs though, and I'm happy for that.

    I teach merit badges at Boy Scout Camp during the summer. This summer I'm helping to run the rifle range. I've also done retail work with Staples and Toys'R'Us, which ******* sucked.

    And despite working with guns this summer, I do not like the NRA.

    Nice! I start prepping for lessons in the summer (earlier, if I can) and don't stop until the last final is graded.

    But I love my job and I love my girls (all girl's Catholic school). It was the perfect place for me to start.

    I do software-esque things for people who think software is black magic. I'm petitioning to get my own cauldron.

    Non-techies think that just about anything technical is black magic of some sort. I could write up instructions with the second step involving sprinkling the blood of a chicken over the computer and I'm certain that someone would attempt it.

    Not everyone is like that. It is frustrating to hear management/executives at my company talk derisively about writing code as though it was some kind of sorcery, though. So it goes.

    I, like the rest of you, have a soul-crushing job I despise but can't quit because of the unemployement rates.

    Wait, I'm confused. I thought unemployment was a Spanish pasttime -- are you being culturally insensitive to yourself again? :(
