There’s a new meme* going around at the moment, called “What I Actually Do”.

It’s been popping up a lot on Facebook – have you come across them?

If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, you can take a look here to get the idea.

In short, take someone’s profession (be it graphic designer, doctor, or – my personal favourite – karaoke singer) and illustrate it with six descriptors:

  • What my friends think I do
  • What my mum thinks I do
  • What my boss thinks I do
  • What society thinks I do
  • What my boyfriend thinks I do
  • What I think I do
  • What I really do

Some of them really are quite funny and clever! Here’s another place where you can see some entrants.

It occurred to me last night that there isn’t one for MY profession!

So I created one. It was so much fun! I think it’s funny, I hope you do to!

* a meme is when people take a photo or a theme and share their own take of it. Have you seen those cat pictures with captions? That’s a meme, too!

Have you ever photocopied your bum at work?
