    It's been several years since I made one of these threads, and there are a lot of new people I don't know now.

    I'm about to graduate college with an Econ/Finance degree and am contemplating what do to do next. Currently intern for an investment firm, work as a receiver at a grocery store, and umpire high school and college baseball.

    On the side I make hiphop/pop beats, play keyboards in a band, play baseball, workout, and play poker at casinos.

    Wat da hell do you people do with your lives?

    I'm a PhD candidate in English and American literature at Boston University, and a teaching fellow for the English and writing programs. The course I'm teaching next semester is going to be on the American Gothic.

    On the side, I read all the shit I don't have time to in class in order to try and broaden my interests and make myself more assimilable to various teaching positions in the future.

    I also play guitar, although not as much as I used to; but I love it, and try to pick it up once every day.

    ...

    Mike, do you sell/ship any of your brews?

    Just graduated with my Bachelor's in English/minor in History.

    For the summer I'm working for my dad, mostly carpentry, some auto repair. Kind of a handyman/odd jobs position, doing the stuff he doesn't have time to do since he is busy running his business.

    I play guitar pretty often. Now that I've graduated I've been cruising through some novels, which is nice. I also like to work out, and occasionally I'll run. Biking is awesome too. I'm also in the process of building a lute, I'm not very far along though.

    Soon I'll have the fun hobby of paying off my student loans.

    Work: Currently a CSA for Lowe's.

    School: Wrapping up my AA this semester, waiting for all my paperwork to process to transfer to the ECU Psych department.

    Hobbies: Discussions with Patrick :cool:

    Seriously though, I barely have the time to do any "hobbies" right now, between work/school/family. Constant battle for the little time I have for me between reading books, keeping current on news, and playing the occasional game on Madden or MW3.

    I can't help but to think that lately you've become a caricature of yourself.
