    I sell shrimp out of a van (Ron White reference)

    Blue collar I guess, random crap jobs working paycheck to paycheck.

    Also, moving to Fun Stuff.

    Hmmm, let's see.

    I work 2-3hrs a week. I make more in a month than most college graduates in a year.

    What do I do?

    Let's just say I "play" the RL "AH".

    I think you must be referring to the stock market

    I'm 28 this year, married, 2 kids, and I work 60-100 hours a week (white collar work - Technical Support Engineer for Power/Gas/Water Smart Meters). I'm also a full-time college student with 4.0 GPA.

    If I can find the time to go back to school, I'm sure you can.

    I do live in Washington. My time at Microsoft has always been on one campus or another, though never specifically on Main Campus. Do you know what campus or the type of things your friends worked on?

    I was an FTE for Microsoft. Worked there for a couple years, the Main campus in Redmond is awesome. The Sunnyvale campus is decent. The Palo Alto "Campus" (group of building they were leasing till they moved the team to a new location) was terrible.

    All in all Microsoft is a decent company to work for, as long as you can avoid the politics, and don't have a terrible manager/director.

    Too old? 26?! Would you kindly STFU and get out of the house and join a course.

    Some people here have pretty interesting jobs.

    White collar here, even though I've never worn a collared shirt to work. Further details of what I do are probably covered by the NDA clause of my contract. Not that I've ever read the small print, but I like to play it safe =P

    Archaeologist as well, although I'm lucky enough to get paid. Still, it varies a lot depending on in which country one lives.

    Senior Marketing Manager in a hospital. So white collar one.

    Due to job market crisis past two years were quite tough for a marketing guy like me. Took any part time job I had a chance (from visual design to writing marketing strategies for companies as well as dull office paperwork and mailing tasks). Year ago I came to this hospital, statistics dept. Completely unrelated to my work experience and education.

    But recently I was offered a position of a SMM. New tasks, new opportunities. And finally I can do what I know and what I like. Last two years I was all 3 at once, blue collar, sales and bum. Now back on white track.
