It's not that I dislike my job at all. Ofcourse there are some things I enjoy doing more than others, and some I don't enjoy much at all. But overall, I really have a pretty fun job. The only real downside is the amount of time I spend on it. But it's like they say, the grass is always greener on the other side.
My ideal life is being an unemployed extravagant novel writer, living with a smart and successful woman who is so deeply in love with me that she will actually put up with all my crap. Obviously, no job can match that.
In truth, there isn't much I should complain about, I make a living and I don't have to clean toilets in order to do so.
So, yeah, I like my job and make a livable salary. But it's not like I love it. :P
Next step: Enjoy my job and make an excellent salary!

Yeah, I like it (translator) but I do need to work longer hours compared to people with a 9-5 jobs. On the plus side, exactly when I have to work is mostly up to me, so I can exploit rainy weekends and nice weekdays more easily. On the side, I work as a research assistant for a professor - that's more fun, but the salary is grossly low, so I refuse to spend too much time doing him a favor.
it's an industry where disruption is always encouraged.
i like the breadth and variety of industries i service.
enriching my experience. above all i love the creative
culture that it thrives on, translating conceptual thinking
to tangible outputs.
no one day is ever the same. and it provides me
with a very, very good life.
every normal man must be tempted, at times,
to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
and begin slitting throats.
I like my current job, I've got a better work life balance now than I used to because I have a vocation to the sort of work I'm doing its easy to get unbalanced and be all work, work, work.
The thing about it is that it demands a high degree of emotional competence and a reflective nature, the very, very least that you can do is provide a role model and example of the change you want to see in the world, but I find that peppered both inside and out in adjacent services and systems are individuals who could not be said to be either.
That's the only thing about my job I dont like, its not something which I can change and trying to is a blind alley. The wage I earn is liveable and perhaps a little bit more than that even.
