    Just wondering what everybody's chosen career is, did you choose what you do or just end up falling into something? And are you enjoying it?

    I'm a plasterer, self employed. Absolutely love the work, has its pitfalls but what job dosent

    I work in IT (for my sins), I do enjoy it but wished I'd gone into Engineering instead.

    I wanted to be a forensic criminal profiler - was just about to start my Honours in Forensic Science 10 years ago when the wife fell pregnant so the money I was putting towards fees had to be filtered to more important things, as time moved on, the plans fell by the wayside. Im now too far along to go back and carry on with that.

    My avatar says it all.
    Do I enjoy it? ? Not particularly but money is ok ish I suppose.
    Always wanted to be a policeman (armed response) but unfortunately it never happened and I am too old and fat now to pursue police career.

    I work in IT and it's something that I chose from a young age simply because a I enjoyed it and b I was good at it so made sense to work towards that field. However my dream job would be something in the automotive world as cars are my lifelong passion, perhaps something like a test driver for Honda so I can drive all the Honda models :neo:

    That was my favourite subject and still love it. At 16 I had the best chemistry laboratory anyone could have seen ...but I blew it up something to do with hydrogen and a spark.

    You need to stick to automotive and let Chris look after the chemistry lab. :teasing:

    Oh yeah that chem lab was packed up and shipped to a local school pronto apparently the entire house shook and I was in A&E with glass fragment embedded in every orifice.
