Oh boy! I would be ready to trade a day of work with some of you fellow cruisers (if I knew how to do the job.) To experience some of these working conditions would be so very interesting! Would definitely be STRESS FOR A DAY!
P.S. then we would have to take a cruise to relax!

I work with the state government, FDA and international regulations to make sure my company stays in business. I also do internal/external audits and make sure we have good controls in place.
However, this is NOT my career. I am currently going to school to become a sign language interpreter (2 year program..... ALMOST DONE!). After that, I'm going to continue school to get at least a BA in some sort of psychology field (possibly child development or family counseling), and minor in lingustics so I can work with families who have a deaf child in their family.
