    Pygmalion, I have heard that housing in Austin is quite expensive. I would imagine that would be the same in Dallas and Houston, however in San Antonio you can find good housing at affordable prices. Unfortunately..city/county taxes are bad here!

    Ok. That means you might one day come across CapricornDancer (who is heading back to the States end of this month) who happens to be a PhD in Molecular Biology........

    Small world :? .

    It's a lot easier to do that now than even a few months ago. 8) I'm doing the same thing. Same profession, different company.

    Try blasting your resume -- for $50 to $100, various services will send your resume to thousands of employers and recruiters. Helped me a lot. :wink: :D

    I'm expanding what I do. In addition to be a graphic designer/project manager, I'm launching The Money Dance, coaching/mentoring individuals on personal money matters (recordkeeping, debt, dealing with creditors, visioning, goal setting, time management, impeccable life skills). My website for this venture will launch in May: moneydance.org.

    I'm also doing an art business: creating planters and plantings grouping succulents which I will show and sell. I'll also teach workshops on succulents growing and container planting.

    I'm also now a columnist! I've been given a column in a local lifestyle magazine (10,000 circulation) on money management. First column will be out in August (which means it's due soon, eek!).

    What a wonderful feeling to have a portfolio career (yes there's even a name for it). I'm excited.

    Right Sue! SG was just teasing me... it was entirely directed at me, not at you!

    ...and he was just trying to be cute & funny... that was entirely tongue in cheeck!

    I'm a secondary five student (in Quebec, dunno what it is in the US or anywhere else...)... I'm working part time as a computer technician, programmer and a sales representative... Pays really well but it's only a part time/summer job, I plan to continue my studies but don't know yet waht I'm going to do later... I'm 17, it's been 7 years I'm working with computers, I'm kinda fed up soooo... I love dancing but it's only for pleasure, hope I'll be good one day but don't plan making a career out of it! That's pretty much all!

    I have a degree in engineering but I´m currently working as a product manager in a telecommunications company. Kind of strange because having a technical background I´m in a commercial/marketing area. :shock: Life is very strange...

    Psst Vince! You forgot to add: "telling the security guys' where your wife works that the two of you are making out amongst the servers she looks after, from time to time" :wink:

    There is a saying MapleLeaf that engineers rarely make good managers :wink: seems that the way engineers think is different from the "people management" managers. Just means that you are unique and your brain should be donated to science :wink: :lol:

    Now . . . how did you know that. I often go in with her on the weekends.
    Besides "fooling around" :oops: . . . we did WCS, Waltz, and the 2 Step around those 400 servers!
