What do you do now that you're a grownup?

Anything goes. But keep it civil, please.

Wait, I'm a grownup?

I'm technology coordinator for a small school district by day.

I'm a doctor. And I still have to stifle a giggle whenever anyone calls me doctor.

I'm a user interface designer for mid-sized software company.

At home, I'm a dad. That really makes me feel like a grown up, even though it involves spending a lot of time playing with trains or pretending to be a dinosaur.

My son's ambition is to be a monster truck driver/paleontologist. We'll see how that goes, but it would make a good action movie.

My paying gig, and my training says I'm a theatre lighting tech. I tend to think of myself as husband, father, lighting tech, photographer, web-designer, reader, and bum.

Is 25 old enough to be considered "grown up" these days? Heck, I'm still a teenager according to my insurance company. :wink:

Either way, I'm a structural CAD drafter.

I'm cleverly disguised as a responsible adult.

37, about to be 38, and I'm a digital media specialist - "light room" work for digital photo and video. My Photoshop-fu is strong.
I also manage a huge digital media archive for a private firm. In my spare time I like photography, sailing (dinghy racing), making jewelry and running around Azeroth with my invisible friends.

I run an information products company and I broker information by acting as a marketing consultant and occasional freelance writer. I'm also a parent, which (as noted above) makes me feel like a grown up more than anything else does!
