"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

Hey guys, I would like to know what do you do and how do you like your Job? Is that your majoy or does it have anything to do with what you learnt before? Of course it would be more interesting if they are totally different. (My computer teacher in primary school had the major of chemistry)
I'm a boring office lady and write email everyday... but I studied German which leads that I'm working in a German spoken Country now :)

    I started off as a teacher of history @Biying (I studied history), but I only lasted a year!

    @mheredge not so interesting to be a teacher?
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 31,042 mod
    Teaching British kids wasn't so wonderful but training adults and teaching children in Asia is a whole different kettle of fish @Biying.
  • BiyingBiying Posts: 36 ✭✭
    @mheredge it seems that you have a lot of international experience :)

    I was teacher too but a dance teacher. It is fun but i don't want a career as teacher. Now i am student in financial engineering. It is very difficult to teach children because you have to do the police sometimes but with the adults it's great.

    @ICEBERG but working with kids is a fun. Isn't it? I think I would love to work with children as we can easily handle them with some tactics and tricks. :)
  • ICEBERGICEBERG Posts: 32 ✭✭
    @Bubbly i prefer work with adults, you can do more things than with kids and they are more diciplined. Kids are always speaking and sometimes they are nasty to each other. But i think it's not the same thing teaching dance and history for exemple because with dance, the kids can be more easily dissipated.
    It is fun to teach children but you are limited and it's more tiring.
  • BiyingBiying Posts: 36 ✭✭
    @Bubbly yes working with Kids is a fun but only for a short time...I had a mini Job in a kindergarten and played a lot of games with kids, I was so exhausted after 3 hours cause you have to keep yourself excited like a child all the time...
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,268 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @ICEBERG @Biying may be you are right because I worked with children for a very short period of time and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 31,042 mod
    What do you do @Shiny03? What's involved in being a rice weevil?
  • Shiny03Shiny03 Posts: 2,882 ✭✭✭✭✭
    If people who don't produce, only consume, we call them rice weevils in Asia. @mheredge

    I Would like to know what do you do for a living? Do you like your current job? Are you making good money? Let's discuss about this...
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 31,042 mod
    What is good money? Everyone has a different idea about how much this is.
  • alexenglishalexenglish Posts: 27 ✭✭
    Yes. I agree with you. Money can be very different for many people. It doesn't have anything to do on how much you have on you banking account!
  • mdshamsadmdshamsad Posts: 88 ✭✭
