47 hours a week pressing shirts at a dry cleaners, but because of the commute i'm off at six at home at six, and as a kick in the pants I only get to sit down for lunch and Its taken from my pay.

For a first job it's hard to adjust to.

40g Fresh water
Aquaclear 300
1 Large Mature Silver Comet Goldfish
4 Bronze corys
1 Apple snail (growing at an alarming rate!)

I usually work 40 hours per week from May-December, but will usually push 65 hours per week during January-April (tax season).

I work for a medium sized local CPA firm in STL.

I do 40 hours dead on right now. Come in at 7, hour lunch at 11, leave at 4. My position as of yet does not require me to perform any offhour duties, but would in the future if I stay with the company. Then I'll easily push 50-60 hours.

I'm a Public Relations Manager for Barnes and Noble bookstores so since the day after Thanksgiving until the second week in January, about 50-55, and then another 20 hours a week posting all over the forum circuit and working on Tropical Resources.

Yes, I seriously need a life, LOL. It's no wonder I'm single.

Hi everyone

I work 40-45 hours a week in my full time job. I work part time doing saltwater work 20-30 hours a week. the rest of my hours is sleeping and taking care of my large aquariums in two different houses. People ask me how do I do it. Well it's hard but you know what I enjoy it very much. And if you enjoy what you do then I believe you are a millionaire!

Darins schedule sounds really familiar. I work a weekend shift...3 days, 12 hrs per day on my "real" job. During the week, I have the coral tanks, the aquarium maintenance service, and three daughters to keep up with. I average about 16-18 hours a day every day. My website has kinda been on the back burner for a while, but I'm hoping to squeeze some time for it this winter.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

This is an average week for me...
40 hrs working in a padded cell (cubicle)
3 hrs Class
~15hrs spent working on my thesis - ( only 2 weeks left for final revision- Yipee! )
~3 hrs tutoring and volunteer work

I sleep every one in a while & the rest is spent driving to all the places I need to be.
