    I play Trackmania all day. And Divinity 2 at night.


    I'm supposed to fix computers, though. But lately I work more with logistics. (And playing games because most of the country is on vacation, and the days are really slow)


    Don't think about it. It's Hugo... ;)

    About to start my second year of Information Security and Forensic Computing. Most people screw their faces when I tell them but it is interesting to me.
    Job: Chef for the summer
    Worth it? Getting more money than last year and only have to work until end of August so can't complain. More drinking money!

    Walmart Merchandise Supervisor for electronics, connection center, photo department, and *sigh* toy department. I don't mind it, pay is too low for my liking though.

    I have my Network Engineering degree, and I'm applying for a Desktop & Network support Technican at the local college here. Hopefully I get the job. I graduated and worked at the college for two years. I really enjoyed working there and it would be nice to get back in. MUCH better pay and benefits. If I get the position I can actually start saving money, hooray!

    I fix computers for my dad's friend's IT services company. Basically I get to spend all day in a store answering phones, talking to people about computers and removing viruses/changing LCDs. Aside from dealing with people who can be very annoying/rude, I love what I do. I make more money than anyone else I know doing something I enjoy. Yes, I know its not a lifelong career choice but I'm 17 and have basically no expenses. Cha-ching.

    I'm desktop support and network admin.

    I'm currently looking for a new job though as I'm being made redundant in September due to a company takeover. The IT job market is crap at the moment.
