    What is the difference between High School and Elementary School?

    I think Elementary is the term for what I'm in right now, so that's what I voted. I'm in the last year of it.

    @Lazy Bonzo here in the US, elementary is usually kindergarten to 5th grade (sometimes all the way to 8th, depends on the school) and high school is grades 9 through 12.

    Same here, BTA - I'm a full time Mom in addition to collecting a paycheck. Commuting to my one job takes 15 hours per week away from my other one. :roll:

    I'm currently in the 8th month of a "retirement" period. I decided that I had worked hard enough, and that it was time to take some time off. So basicially, I do NOTHING!

    I was a real estate broker, and a real estate appraiser. Now I'm just a beach bumb.

    Irritate the crap out of everyone on the SP Forums!!! :roll: :rolling: :spin: :xx: :hahaerr:

    Seriously, my third career is as a telecom analyst. Part of a dying breed. :(

    My second was in bank management. :flaming: Hated that job.

    I still want to go back to my first career, professional student! :grin:

    I study law at a university, run some small website and do SP news apart from sitting in #sorcerers and muting while playing some games, posting things, or doing whatever on my computer.

    The closest thing to a job is tutoring (English and Latin). Basic fee corresponding to $8 with change per hour (come on, it's Poland), no foolish taxes. Haven't done that for some time now, though.

    Technically, I also do wepbpages, but I haven't got any money for any one I've ever done. Even though I'm technically in the pool and there should still be some adverts somewhere even.

    This servant is currently learning physics.

    Like chev, the closest thing to a job is tutoring, read: forcefully feeding maths and physics down the throat of angsty teenagers.

    Sometimes I feel like a mercenary hired by parents.
