I enjoy what I do. I don't look forward to it, as I'd rather be at home, playing video games. But when I get up in the morning, I have no qualms about taking my four hours of sleep, getting into my warm-but-not-hot-shower and spending an hour in the car to get there...

...and really, that's the best indication that I like this job.

I enjoy what I do, but you knew that. ;) At the same time there's a hell of a lot of stress and 80-hour weeks and ridiculous demands, all of which would likely cause a lot of people to just throw up their hands and walk away. In the end, the *real* reason I like what I do is that I'm surrounded by awesome people who also like what they do. The fact that I get to play a lot of Nintendo is just a bonus. Here's hoping you find what you're looking for, Mav. :)

yeah... see that's definitely the other extreme. I don't want to enjoy what I do so much that it takes over my life. There are just too many things I'm interested in. Too many things that I enjoy doing. I want to have something that I can do every day, and it would pay the bills, clear my debt, maybe let me buy a house and on a good day even give me insurance, while leaving me time to enjoy the finer things in life... you know... comic books, wrestling, pinball and drinking..

see... is that too much to ask? I don't even have to be happy working. I'd settle for not dreading it.

by the way... what do you do exactly?

I'm a teacher at a private academy for juvenille delinquints. It's a weird job - not easy, not relaxing, but very fulfilling... which is, in a way, relaxing and sometimes easy.

Uh. Hard to explain. I like people, for some reason, and I like the kids. They're really hard to like. But I like them.

actually, that sounds really nice... I have a thing for kids too... particularly ones that have been abandoned by everyone else... maybe I should look into that sort of thing.
