I am a professional Dermagraphic artist (Tattoo artist). In my spare time I paint, sculpt, work leather, foam smith, sew garb. I like to fish. I hope to some day write a book that changes the world for the better.

This August I start a PhD program in Classics at University at Buffalo; focusing on Classical Greek warfare.

Currently, I tend bar at the local Moose Lodge in St. Cloud, Minnesota.

Yay Minnesota!

I'm going to insert some science into this here thread.

I'm starting a Microbiology Ph. D. program at Michigan state university. I got a fellowship to do a laboratory rotation this summer and I get to work with hyperthermophilic iron reducing bacteria. This fall I get to work with bacteria that produce conductive carbon nanowire pili!

I hope to use my degree to start some sort of energy focused company, either biofuels or bacteria batteries, depends quite a bit on the science when I graduate and what I've learned. Teaching is also an option, or if I don't want to do either of those things, staff or government scientist somewhere cushy sounds good to me :D

SCIENCE!!

I'm considering applying to MSU's microbiology program next year.  I may have to pick your brain at some point, if you don't mind.

That said, working for U of M's biology department, prepping undergraduate biology labs, and currently banging my head against a wall, trying to troubleshoot an experiment involving S. aureus biofilms in a lab in which I'm volunteering.

I just graduated college with a pair of interesting but mostly-unemployable degrees.  Currently, I'm interning at an environmental learning center, doing a mix of gardening/farm work and publishing interviews to a web site.  In about eight months, I hope to join these badasses for a few years.  After that, it's more than likely back to school, for more unemployable degrees!

I'm a fan of my life right now.

Dont do it go to college become a doctor or a lawyer or something, but if you are deadset on becoming a grunt for the rest of your life its called an apprentice not an intern. same thing yes interns make money when they are done apprentices still make **** when they are done. you want to go in to local shops and ask if they need a helper or a laborer and then pay the **** attention to what the journeymen are doing.

Interdisciplinary Studies (split between Peace and Justice Studies, Philosophy, and Sociology) and Theater.  Good stuff. Yo, if it looks cool to you, CPT is pretty badly underfunded this fiscal year.  Just sayin'... :)

I just graduated college with a pair of interesting but mostly-unemployable degrees.  Currently, I'm interning at an environmental learning center, doing a mix of gardening/farm work and publishing interviews to a web site.  In about eight months, I hope to join these badasses for a few years.  After that, it's more than likely back to school, for more unemployable degrees!

I'm a fan of my life right now.

That is actually really cool. What were your two unemployable degrees btw?

Interdisciplinary Studies (split between Peace and Justice Studies, Philosophy, and Sociology) and Theater.  Good stuff. Yo, if it looks cool to you, CPT is pretty badly underfunded this fiscal year.  Just sayin'... :)

I wish I could help, but alas. I am a poor minister.

I'm a graphic designer and I've started my own side business where I work as a  product designer and cosmetics formulator. The side business is slowly taking over and if all goes well will become my primary job (yay!).

On top of that I am a wife and mother (and being married to a viking IS work).

In addition to my summer studies (grad school for medieval history PhD) I'm now putting in half days 5 days a week on the pottery wheel. I'm trying to build up enough stock to be able to merchant at events again, both historically inspired pieces and a spread of fantasy / modern tableware. Almost everything I make is for eating off of - I love making art that can also be used, and run through the dishwasher (I haven't eaten off of plates that weren't hand made since I moved out of my parents' house).

So, asks the Poli Sci major of the Interdisciplinary Studies/Theater Major, what was your career plan for these degrees?

I do a lot of minerals and natural formulas. I cater to people looking for natural, hypoallergenic, and vegan products. Leave out the nasty cheap fillers and just use the good stuff.

Right now I'm suppling small boutiques and building capital and infrastructure for a full online shop. Until then I'm using etsy to get things rolling. Excuse the shameless plug  :P
