I left my job of 8 years and went back to school to be a paralegal. I will have the degree in a few weeks and then I suppose I should start looking for a job.

I am a HUC (health Unit Coordinator) in an emergency room. Before the invention of certain computer programs, I would put all the doctor's orders (lab/ekg/radiology) into the computer and do all of the paging when we needed other doctors. I was usually very busy. Now I sit at a desk and put patients into the computer when they come in to the department. I still do all the paging but I'm also a door person every time a visitor comes inside from going outside to smoke, I have to get up to let them in. That's about all the exercise I get at work. I'm happy to still have my job........I just wish it was a little more challenging.

Till February, I worked as a professional sensory panelist at a major flavor and fragrance developer. I was a pro sniffer/taster.

I got fired, due to politics and my unwillingness to keep quiet about some sketchy stuff happening.

Best thing that ever happened to me, because I took the opportunity to build my own side business into a full time operation. I'm a professional tarot card reader, now, and I own an apothecary shop. It's my dream come true.

And all the strange rock and rollers
You know you're doing all right
So hold on to each other
You gotta hold on tonight
