I'm a receptionist/secretary/office manager for a non-profit organization that helps homeless families get back on their feet. We provide them with an apartment or home and they are required to pay rent based on their income, utilities, and to seek permanent housing within a year. We operate out of an apartment building we own and we also manage regular rental properties. The pay could be (and needs to be) more, but I've been working for non-profits for six years and I know they can't afford to pay employees well unless they have tons of money. We're working on that.

I'm a college student (and the various things I do involved with that). For my paying job, I work for City Hall as an executive assistant (recently promoted to Senior Office Manager) in the Health & Human Services departement dealing with Recreational and Cultural Affairs.

My salary is much more than someone at 20 should be making, and my benefits kick ass. Gotta love being paid by the taxpayers!

After many years working in middle management in corporate America, I now work in the business office of a large internal medicine/pulmonary/infectious disease practice. The pay isn't close to what I was making before, but I get to do a little 'good' for society instead of making money for a greedy conglomerate. LOL

Im a Cadiology Specialist. I was an M.D of Cardiology until Recently. Now, I am a General Practitioner in the same Hospital. Dont mean to get off topic, But honestly, I hate this new Hospital. I relocated from New York last year, and now I am in PA. One reason I switched over to GP, Is that this field needs help here. They were short and they have these really young assholes, and they needed someone to step in, so now I am the unofficial, Head GP. The Cardiology floor here is good though, so they didnt need me as much.

    • The Rauch version seemed abruptly truncated in comparison to the full one—like the video and audio weren't actually edited at all for that, they just deleted a whole portion—but with a little money put in upfront to it could have worked.  So many memorable scenes in the early '90s had included that theme as background and/or picked up the next day and segued into that opening...even the brief hint of that music evokes memories for me.  Not to mention, they would have saved money in the long run without having to update cast photos or keep paying for new openings. I doubt you could prove a connection with ratings, but I actually think it's interesting that Y&R has remained the highest rated for so long and DAYS is (was?) one of the last soaps, while both stuck with their original theme songs.  And each theme became part of broader pop culture in some unexpected ways over the years: Mary J Blige, Close Encounters, etc.  Who's to say that kind of free publicity didn't help keep those shows on casual viewers' minds at some point?  But it's also a case of the chicken and the egg - a mainstream entertainment project would probably not give that kind of shout-out to a soap or its theme music if both weren't so familiar to people.
    • Yes to all of this. I mean I wouldn’t have mind seeing Nate find success and media attention with his Ask MD website or whatever but the switch to a media executive was the worst. 
    • Honestly, as long as they don't do the shaky cam stuff, I've been thinking it's bad enough now to lean into the Peapack model. Film at a real courthouse on the weekend instead of making a set, a real park instead of Chancellor park....
    • Jon Michael Reed in an Afternoon TV review of GL criticized the 75-81 theme as looking and sounding like a Tampax commercial.
    • RHOM What a chaotic but absolutely great show. Miami just gets better with every episode.  I've always loved Las Cubanas, but they have gotten very mean-girl-clique. Alexia has always been such a great RH, but last season's success has gone to her head. She is disdainful of Adriana (who, though hard to like by some, was 100% in the right( and lowkey threatened by Nicole. Larsa is, too. I can't believe Larsa is swanning around, photographing her feet in lucite heels, thinking that qualifies as work and that this makes her superior to a full-time anesthesiologist. Bringing in the lawyers could have been so contrived (which it was), but it was so breezy and the lawyers were in on the joke of it all.  I can't believe I once found Lenny hot. Those were gaslighting, threatening words the Peacock mics picked up. No wonder those sweet kids are acting out. They are confused and probably feel lowkey abandoned by their father for this new hoe.
