    Apologies if this has been posted already!!

    What's does everyone do??? Just wondering, with the areas fast approaching, how many of us struggle to make all the rehearsals because of our jobs??

    I am a librarian for Cardiff University and am missing a rehearsal just now because I am in work (really busy though, ahem!)

    I'm a primary school teacher, although my job does,ny interfere at all with rehearsals, getting days off to 'recover' from contests is murder, especially if you were planning to show off silverware.

    I'm at college 4 and a half days a week and i am a supervisor at Tesco. It doesn't interfere with rehearsals but sometimes the occasional concert at the weekend it will, but i try and work round it by swapping shifts.

    Being at uni (music at Huddersfield) and having a hectic day schedule I really need evenings free to do work, not always possible with band ... so I content myself with finding afternoons free here and there to do it ...

    Going out and drinking less would help I suppose :p

    I'm a Numerical Analyst for the UK Atomic Energy Authority's Fusion Research division, working on the MAST experiment.

    It can be quite fulfilling, but is often pretty hard on the brain! :hammer :hammer :hammer
