Thread: What do you do for a living?

    What do you do for a living?

    Hey everyone,

    So what do you do living?

    I currently work in a call centre through an agency. The hours are varied 8am-8pm however it leaves my weekends to be creative making items to sell online. I hope to be work for myself one day as I love making things for people.

    CAD design and CNC programming. Formerly boats, currently designing a composite carbon fibre / wood harp in collaboration with a really interesting master harp maker and a very impressive chartered engineer. I feel like the apprentice when working with these two, but it's great to be able to tap such knowledge.

    I knew a "professional nose", he sniffed mains gas to test if there was enough smelly chemical in it. Seriously.

    He suffered from MS after he gave up a large weed habit - not sure if it was connected to the gas-sniffing.

    Sounds a horrid job , I would have thought they could test gas with a machine of some sort , hope he gets a claim for personal injury caused by work . Crossed my mind a 'proffesional bum' might be a job in the test department of a suppositry factory too ?

    Currently I work in a wood factory which is not a bad shit job. Its not what I thought I'd be doing but it pays better than anything I've done in years. Plus I get cheap reject wood which is great for my van build and future boat build if I get my act together and save some cash for once in my life.

    I hate doing overtime though. I'm a creative person and NEED to make stuff. I started making cigar box guitars last year and I'm developing an interest in luthiery my next build will be a 6 string electric guitar made out some alternative woods etc.

    Although this is purely an interest/hobby. I've no interest in trying to build any more business'.

    Out of choice I work around a couple of months a year in total and live off that very comfortably for the rest of the year. I choose my clients carefully and always choose nice parts of france to work in. Spend the rest of my time enjoying nature out in the national parks and walking and wolf tracking in the mountains.

    I compose music, perform music and run the odd music workshop. People often ask if they can buy my music, but I suppose I'd have to get round to recording some of it first. It hardly seems possible I've survived as a freelance muso for coming up to nineteen years. I used to have a proper job, but this is more fun.
