    Wow! What's O&G? Your parent's death must have been a hard hit at your mom's finances. :/
    Oil and Gas.

    Yeah, it was tough. Even more so now that she's only getting a £13k stipend but, that's life. Hopefully I'll achieve my career goals and maybe even beat my dad's peak income

    My dad is a factory tool setter, £23k.
    My mum's a stay-at-home-mum, even though her youngest is 18 (me).

    My parents are divorced. My mum is a university academic on about £50K (I think - she doesn't discuss it with precision) and my dad is a senior adviser in an EU institution and also advises some other organisations who pay him to do so (kind of a consultant really) and again he doesn't tell me what he earns, but I would guess it's well over £200K.

    Think my dad ended up on about £40k as an oncology research chemist

    He retired at 55 though so he is on much less now. Think he said it amounts to about min wage.

    You'd be surprised actually, some dudes have a inferiority complex. Personally, I wouldn't care.

    Computer/Software Architecture =/= regular architecture.

    An Architect in a technology sense means that they oversee projects and build out specifications for different Tech related products (usually chips, software etc)/services. Like a senior project manager in a sense.

    My mum was a bar maid most of her life, so minimum wage as you can imagine. Then she went back into education to become a counsellor of some sort on top of full time bar work and was doing well and was soon to qualify. But then my granddad became ill so she became his carer and bar work part time, those were some particularly poor years. Then my granddad died (and ****ing hell even the lowest of key funerals are expensive) and just as she was about to finish her education she became too ill. So yeah....poor.

    As for my dad, I know he has a chemistry degree but I don't know what he did work wise. We don't talk.
