    I'm a full time student.. It's exam period now, I really shouldn't have time to game but I always manage to find time.
    I think the strange thing is people who can't find time for their hobbies, if they truly enjoy doing it then they will make time to do it.

    I'm a full time student and moocher off of my parents. I have loads of time to game, but I go through phases where I play all the time and everywhere. I'm not in one of those phases now...thanks to school.

    [​IMG], pray for me my fellow gamers, that I finish up school and am able to devote all my free time this summer to writing and gaming.

    I'm a security officer working 12hr shifts [​IMG] If I'm on nights I play 360,DS, have net access, TV, freeview, movies and best of all no one bothering me.
    If I'm on day shift I just play DS and surf teh web.
    Sometimes I can't believe I actually get paid, pretty good pay at that.
    Downside is the hours I do: 7 shifts in a row and get 3 days off, then 7 again but 4 days off. Rotating. Forever.

    Oh it is very boring, if I didn't have all this stuff I wouldn't do it. If your not happy with your own company or really into games, movies etc. it would be horrible.

    I work at a metal stamping factory. It has eaten all my time. That's the main reason for me passing on the task of updating the cheat.dat to Narin. I only have time to play games and be active on the forums on the weekends mostly now.

    I work first 10 days of every month in one of the biggest local banks..My job is to supervision this big machine that stuffs envelops, and packs them..It's a shitty job, but when machine goes down, or breaks (and that's very often) I play GBA..This month I completed Summon Night on my job!!

    But it is just for the time being..I actually try to get myself a graphic designer job, but lack of working expiriance is big problem for me..Sooner or later, I'll get the job, and then I'll be happy..

    I lift up heavy boxes. And sometimes I have to push this vacuum around.

    I only work between 24 and 32 hours a week so i *have* time but not really, b/c i spend at least an hour a day practicing guitar. It's also Playoff season for hockey and basketball so that eats up most of my free time

    I'm a student.

    work once a week at local tennis club as a Junior Tennis Supervisor.
    its mostly talking to random kids and their parents, standing around watching them play tennis, helping out when there is a problem, cleaning up at the end. in a nutshell, another easy but incredibly boring job.

    I sit behind my computer, fill out surveys, and passively get revenue from some of my websites' advertising. It's not exactly "good pay" but I've gotten GTA4, a game boy micro, flashcarts, tons of microsoft points, tons of wii points, etc, to fuel my gaming desires. Gaming Lagoon is pure awesome [​IMG] I encourage everyone, especially students, to try it out, getting stuff from there is really easy once you get used to it. Theres a link in my sig.

    But I'm also a student. ):
