    Alright TB'ers, i myself am an electronic engineering student. But my bass playing is my hobby and stress relief mechanism. What is your profession?

    The poll will not have student option, so if you are a medical student, pick medicine, if you are an accounting student, click accounting.

    You can elaborate if you wish...

    Moderators, please feel free to add professions that i may have forgotten...

  6. I picked other, for grunt.

    Former full time musician, now working two PT jobs in addition to music while hoping to make it back to FT with music. It's still almost my main earner, but I can afford to eat more now.
     
  7. Graphic Artist.... but I can only draw stick figures. I surely don't enjoy painting or sculpting like most other "artists".

    writer/editor here.

    I make some extra cash as a musician: $100-200/month for a lesson here and there and $100-$200 gigging. I get a kick out of it though, cause if I wasn't getting paid, I'd still do it. In fact at gigs I ussually use my earnings to lure guest musicians with gas money and drinks or pizza on me.
