For a living and such. I'm a recently graduated from UNCA freelance web developer. It's ok. The pay is good if I could just get enough work to fill a week and get my damn clients to pay me sooner than 2 months after the work is done. I'm hoping to go back to grad school this summer so I can get enough knowledge to really start a business or get a high paying job with a design/branding firm. I wanted to shoot for an office job now, but since my wife is military we tend to move around a lot. Here's my portfolio site: http://www.seefresh.net
What does everyone else do? Do you like your job (be it an office job, stay at home mom/dad ;), or whatever)?

Currently a stay at home daddy studying my arse off for my CCNA. Trying to squeeze 6+ months of studying into 2-3 months. So far I am on track. Previous to this I was a career Auto Parts guy for some major dealerships in Dallas. Got tired of the game and decided if I am going to work my butt off, I want more money!

By seasonal i mean i'm laid off in the winter for about 3 months a year on average.It's a great gig.I make enough and save enough to be comfortable in the winter.I'd hate having to work all year!

I work for the govenment (indirectly, but directly with government personel), repairing electronic systems off of Navy airplanes. Good gig, good pay, the people can be shitty sometimes. A lot of people like to complain about their job here, I like to tell them to quit, but they never do. They don't know how good they have it. I work in a lab that is kept at 65deg, if it gets over ~75 then we have to shut down because our test benches start acting up. nothing to complain about there. I am working for a contractor right now trying to get a civil service position, the pay increases are better and a bit more perdictable, and the vacation time is good, plus my time in the Navy will count toward benefits and retirement. Just incase anyone was wondering or thinking about it, no i cann't really talk about what i work on specifically (on an open forum anyway).

I'm the Executive Chef of a large private club and banquet facility. I've been doing it for 37 years since I was 18. I started out as a cook though.

I damn near went down that path. Applied for Culinary Art School but decided I didn't want to repay the 40k and went back to automotive. Still wish I had every so often.

Consider it done.
Air Force weather forecaster.
My specific job is doing briefings for all of our military fighter aircraft going overseas. i do the air refueling route forecasts. On any given day, I could be doing a briefing for over the pacific and atlantic oceans--or in asia. It is always different. Sometimes it sucks, but I haven't deployed in almost 5 years. Gotta love that.
I love the job, but man are we busy right now.
