It is livable for an eastern europoor. I am thinking of tutoring British and Australian students online. I have a wacom tablet and morning hours are afternoon in Australia, while I am only 2 hours behind Britain. The problem is that their tutoring websites require official papers and shit (tax, diploma, etc.) so I have no way to advertise myself for them. if I could charge 20 to 30 dollar and hour and teach 4 hours a day I could live nicely.

Nothing wrong with knowing the terminology. It is not like I'm some snob elitist, it is just that when she has tests she reviews by reading it out loud so I've heard the definitions.

I know that chef is reserved for someone who is in charge of a kitchen in a formal restaurant and there is also the seus-chef who serves as acting chef when the chef isn't there and the executive chef who also has business responsibilities.

You fry shit. You are a cook.

>Laser scientist/engineer
>27 years old with Master's degree

It's a lot of fun but it can be exhausting. The work is physically taxing. I've developed carpal tunnel syndrome b/c of the really fine fiber optic work.

Also safety is iffy with prototype kilowatt class lasers. It's a product of the demand (we basically get blank checks to do skunkworks type projects). Other people at my lab refer to me and a small group of my coworkers as "laser cowboys" b/c we blow shit up so frequently. It can actually be scary/nerve-wracking, but so far the worst I've done is vaporize the hair on my arms.

but hey lasers are badass so there's that.

PhD often means that you're research focused, unless an engineering PhD is just a totally different beast that I just don't know about. If you're into research it's an okay idea, especially since your main investment is time so long as your degree is funded. Otherwise go make money you silly asshole, an engineering degree is a ticket onto the dosh train as long as you didn't get straight C's.
