Hello ladies! 
I'm trying to figure out what I want to do for the rest of my life. . . .

What do you do for a career? How much do you make? Why did you choose that job? Pros and cons? How long did schooling take? Steps for post secondary education for the job? Do you love your job?

THANKS SO MUCH!!!

We own a gas station chain. It's nice, but I'm in dental school, once I finish then I'll have a career I LOVE.

I am a retired dance instructor and program director. I love it, loved I did what I had a passion for. Now I am graduating with my computer programming degree and recently got hired by the university as a computer specialist. I was self taught on the basics and furthered my education on web programming. I love it, its my other passion and new career.

How long did your schooling take you? What is a basic day at your work? (if you don't mind me asking)

You should! I bet they'd love it. I wish my mom did these things with me when I was younger.
