What do you do, is it a job that will become your career, is it your career, or do you just do something random just for the cash?
Well i do something that has nothing to do what my dream career will be! Atm, im trying to get money so i'm working as a temp contract to reseal tile floors and seal the grout.
:/ Its really boring but its money which i need.

Here's a vid of me at work. You know how the economy is, gotta do what you can to make ends meet. I'm the one on the right.

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

Nothing wrong with that .
Currently, I'm a film/theater electrician and I write fiction. Dream jobs don't happen overnight, so don't worry about it.
I did a LOT of random, often crappy jobs in between - roofing, bussing tables, office temp, retail, antique furniture/lamp repair and restoration, theatrical rigging, electrical engineer(long story), wedding videos, personal assistant, carpentry, and so on...
Whatever pays the bills, bro.
I am a student
Graphic design student, spend most my time researching (reading design blogs, browsing the net, looking at pretty pictures, watching movies etc. ) and working on assignments and personal projects.
I'm in the process of starting a screen printing business with some fellow students to get some more practical experience in production, marketing, sales and project planning.
When I have time of I work at a ship-yard back home, doing basic machining of various parts.
Hopefully I'm moving to London this fall to do the final year of my graphic design studies.

I used to make some cosmetic tests, the step just after the rats and rabbits, testing sun cream or shampoo or lipstick and that kind of stuff. It pays well.
Now I only paint & draw u__u

Full time Illustrator for a company that does stretching guides for rehabilitation and physical therapy. Dream to be drawing? Oh yes. Though it lacks the creative element. Kinda neat that it helps people though. I like that.
Freelance gaming illustration on the side in the evenings.
I have much further to go on my dreams
Full time High School Art Teacher now rewriting the Secondary Art Curriculum (and yes I've listed Concept art as a resource because I truly believe it)
I also do the occasional after school art club at my daughters school.
My hobby job is as a Stage Technician in a local theater; lights, sound, carpentry, rigging, etc.
I try to surround myself in the creative arts and I like to keep busy
I do photoreal Architectural Renderings for a Arch-Vis company in Irvine, CA. The work is fun, but it's not what I want to do. At night I'm up till 2 am working my concept stuff. You have to work hard if you want your dreams to become a reality.
I work as an assembly-line packer for a company that turns cat poop into TV dinners...
We also produce a line of organic chocolate chip cookies...

I'm a student so I don't have to worry about living type of money. But for some money, I sell some albums that I buy cheap, the record stores have no idea about, and ends up being worth tons! Also concert tickets and various other music related things. I also make a rare buck with my art. I can't explain it, I do basically nothing but money sort of just comes to me...
Freelance artsss, currently trying to figure out whether I wanna dwell deeper into the freelance world or pursue being a concept artist.... The beautiful mountain scenery is making this difficult . But, gotta keep workin hard and see where i end up !

but mainly just a student
I work in a frameshop. The pay is minimal, but I guess I'm lucky to have a job. Its not what I want to do, but there are worse jobs for sure. Though some days I get really upset and tell myself I really gotta get my shit together. Want to be a concept artist and spend my days drawing geeky stuff.
Working in a frame shop does have its perks though:
Crash test dummy.
I go to school full time, Major in Painting and minor in Sculpture. I work the rest of the time at UPS where I sort packages.
"Astronomy offers an aesthetic indulgence not duplicated in any other field. This is not an academic or hypothetical attraction and should require no apologies, for the beauty to be found in the skies has been universally appreciated for unrecorded centuries."
I alternate between being a geophysicist and being retired. I suppose I will eventually be totally retired, but I enjoy the science too much to give it up completely. Besides it pays too well to turn my back when the opportunity arises. I guess you would say that geophysics and geology has been my life's work.
I also do dog portrait commissions. It doesn't pay nearly as well as the geophysics, but it does cover my art supplies.
The truth will set you free,
but first it's gonna piss you off!
I currently freelance as "Jack of all Trades", mostly for German Film and TV productions and the local music scene. When a production is in danger of going over budget or when the need for custom made items arises, my phone usually rings.
I do everything from producing graphical stuff like concept art, storyboards, shirt designs and album covers to more practical stuff like costumes, weapons, practical fx, production equipment, custom made props and small sets.
Sadly I dont get to do that much graphical stuff these days. Most of my recent assignments involved creating custom props, but its fun and pays the bills, so who am I to argue
"How do you know you're good enough?" "You know." "What if you're wrong?" "You find out."

I'm a gynecologist.
currently working at a teacher assistant for a game design program, as well as doing some game concept and storyboard freelance on the side.
starting to realise that i'd rather have my own company, though, and tell other people what to do.
Full time student in Physical Sciences. Made a few hundred dollars working as a freelance pixel artist before university started, but I don't really have time for too much of that now. Still need to figure out how make some good money in the summer.
