    Adaptive = for people with physical challenges?

    The more I know about you, the more I like. You rock. I can hardly wait until you get your well -deserved respite in Hawaii. I admire you. I am not kidding. :cool:

    I have been a language teacher for most of my life teaching people english and french. After my MA in linguistics I started proofreading PhDs and law books.
    Having specialised in law and history I did a lot of proofreading without getting actually paid for it or being able to support myself.
    So, I ended up with this PA position in a legal service of the Ministry of Culture. I enjoyed it a lot for the first couple of years, cos I got to do a lot of translation work. Unfortunately, no more time or energy for language teaching. I miss that grately. I did try to have a career change but I didn't make it.
    Now, I'm having a "life change" if one can say that. I'm not a dancer, but I'm dancing. At the moment, I'm not making my living out of my current job because I'm not paid. I hope to be soon!

    When I have work, I'm a software engineer. My specialty is computer networking/Internet infrastructure. Dance, particularly swing dance, is an avocation, but not something I'd try to do professionally. My main concern is whether I will have enough time to spend on swing dancing to get good enough at it to become a fun, yet skilled dancer, especially after I start working. I'm also trying to decide whether I want to compete at comps or continue to do choreographed routines, as I've done in the past at the ballroom studio I currently take lessons at.

    Taxes, numbers, people and the owner of a big club simply because I couldn't find a good enough place to go out dancing...

    Lots of dancing yes but truth is that it's the most expensive dancing I've ever done!

    This post was from so long ago. I don't even know if "Kevin" is still around or he made the jump to full time dance instructor. But I'm a pharmacist and I can so see this story being told by administration types. :applause:

    I have answered this before....but it was a long time ago, so...currently; I work for a church where I meet with engaged couples at their convenience to do pre-marital counseling and I also sing for major events at the parish and facilitate a grief support series once or twice a year for 5 weeks...the official title is pastoral minister...my degrees are a BA in sociology and an MA in pastoral studies...my previous occupation for 10 years was as a chaplain and grief counselor for a hospice, which I left in order to take care of my mom when she was terminal...I also have a previous rather long history of institutional (college) food service, which was my minor...

    I also am certified to teach group fitness including but not limited to zumba, spin, step, toning, cardio-kick, etc...I do this a minimum of 3 times a week bit it is usually more like 8 times a week

    I'm a college student looking to get my degree in Biology with a Philosophy minor on the side. As a career, I hope to participate in biological research. I'm not completely sure what I want to research, but genetics is highest on the list, especially genetic pathology.
