I like what I do at times. It's good knowing that what I'm doing is improving the work day of so many thousands of people, and that *I* will affect the bottom line of this huge Corporation in some small way. Likely Millions of people will see my work in the next few years. That's good, and I do not stress over it, I know I'm doing a good job.

However, the Corporate World is not where I belong. I can play the game, but it's not for me. My job is my paycheck. Head down, ramming speed, and I'll get through this project. Now to put a few resumes out there in my spare time.

The Why of not always liking my job is part politicking, part job function, but mostly that I don't feel I'm fairly compensated. For what I'm doing, I should at least break $50k, no? Apparently not. But I'd trade some salary for flexibility in schedule and additional vaca days. And a guaranteed "no more than 40 hours". These 50hour+ weeks are really getting to me.

Ah see... you must have pride... I remember pride... vaguely... I don't remember what it felt like so much, but I think I used to like it...
