    I play on the internet.

    But other than that I am a mapper and do some IT support stuff. If I was supporting anyone else though I doubt I would be able to fund my habit as much as I do.

    Yeah, Don't spend any money until you retire. That way, your kids will have Teslas in their driveways after they put you in the box. :(:p:D

    Insurance adjuster. I never thought of doing this for a living, but 18 years later I'm still here. I get 39 days a year off, and make OK money, so it's good.

    This is a lot cheaper than old cars, or fishing or boating or flying or any number of other hobbies.

    Millwright, there’s just me and the boy at home, but we both shoot... can get a bit pricey keeping us both in components.
