Americans love to ask people ‘what do you do’? | Heather Long | comment | theguardian.com.

I always hated that question. People carry a preconceived answer about your income, where you live, your personality, etc. With one answer people think they know everything about you. I don’t want to be defined by my job, but what like and am interested in and what I want to do. I’m so much more then my work, which is difficult in my line of work as well as who I do it for.

One of the advantages with Social Media and the internet (hence a webpage all about me) is people get a glimpse of what you like, how you think, and your interests. People see the rest of you.
