    Engineer very tiny electronics, and brew beer, and hang out with my wife/kids, watch Nic Cage movies and check The National Forum at least once every day or two.

    I work in the worlds tiniest picture framing shop by day. In my spare time I am a costume designer (just going to casually drop my website in here)

    Just sat here with a puzzled expression on my face for the last two minutes, trying to recall what else I do with my time. I think it’s mainly watching Road Wars and drinking tea.

    I’m still a student in college (I’m 23) studying English and Communications. I’m also a writer. Last year in one of my creative writing classes, I made a reference to The National in every single piece I wrote.

    Real life??? You mean there’s more to life than The National?

    Seriously though, I’m a full time student studying Mathematics and Physics, hoping to go to Grad School in the US when I’m finished in Ireland.

    I’m currently on an internship in the semiconductor devices manufacturing industry.

    Excellent!

    I used to do that with Muse lyrics (back when I was big Muse fan) in English class 🙂 Always good fun

    So simple and direct with a beautifully strong sense of self.  I love it.

    Adam has won this thread, seemingly without trying.

    Love hearing about the whole yous.

    IRL I stalk AHM because he makes me laugh. Which is necessary as I also work with kids in school, and am in my second year of training to be a counsellor. So tell me about your childhoods.

    Otherwise I swim, yoga, meditate, surf, write,  and bang the drums. Not all at once.

    Books.  Booksbooksbooksbooksbooks.  When I’m at work I order books and when I’m at home I read books and when I’m asleep I dream about books and when I’m in the shower I think about books I need to order.  Lately though I’ve been married which cuts into my reading time, luckily in a not at all unpleasant way.  He also loves books.  And cats.  We have cats.

    Seafret: Anything you would want to know about my childhood, you can get from reading the Adult Children of Alcoholics book followed by the forthcoming Neil Gaiman book, The Ocean at the End of the Lane.

    I am an English – Writing Studies graduate student, working on my Master’s Thesis (social media & journalism).

    I also run my school’s Writing Center in the absence of an actually Writing Center Director.

    Part-time I am a journalist for a local online newspaper.  And sometimes I work with the NJ Devils, doing community outreach with their street team. Neither of these have happened lately though, so I don’t think I still have those jobs.

    For the record, I am not paid well for any of this.

    How exciting!

    I know somethings about some people, but not much about others.

    Mr.Bio, I think what you do is incredible and not dull at all. You also do something tremendeously positive which is totally awesome genius.

    Seafret – no idea that is what you were training to do that. That is also on my to do list in a few years when I decide to grow up. I will be getting your advice! To me, you were always amazing mother/enthusiastic drummer.

    That’s right, I am a poet too!

    I’m noticing a pattern here.  You start these (wonderful) threads that make our nice little family bond and our relationships flourish, but somehow you always avoid becoming a participant.  I know you don’t have the word “participant” under your name, but that doesn’t mean you can’t participate…

     

    Maryforum:  Can we get a downgrade to “Participant” for LH?  At least long enough for her to participate?
