    Default Do You Love What You're Doing Job/Career Wise?

    Are you working in a job/career that you're happy with? What made you choose your job/career? If you're not happy, have you considered other options? Also, if you don't mind, can you share what you do?

    I want to start working again and can't decide what I want to do. I have time to go back to school, but I don't want to spend too many years studying, as I'd like to be working before I'm 50. Healthcare is at the top of my list because it's rewarding and there is a need.

    Suggestions are welcome.

    I am going back to school to study Physical Therapy. Right now I enjoy the classes I am taking (it is tough work but worth it). My old job paid well but wasn't very fulfilling, so I decided for a new path. I didn't want to be one of those miserable people for the rest of my life.

    I get paid shit all for it, but as a video game journalist, I couldn't be happier.

    No i don't, and i don't know what else to do. I feel stagnant at times... i need to push forward and make it different (up the ante) or change entirely.
    So many options but while i sit and deliberate i am no wiser as to what course of action to take.

    Not quite, but it certainly helps.

    Daniel Day-Lewis once said about his profession, "If I weren't allowed this outlet, there would be no place for me in society."

    my career pleases me; i feel the same way about mine. my career has evolved from an escape from the manacles of tradition > a source of intellectual stimulation > a wellspring of power > a catalyst for transformation in moments of stillness. that it has shifted and i with it over time is my indication that we chose each other well.
    I may be kindly, I am ordinarily gentle, but in my line of business I am obliged to will terribly what I will at all.

    I review books for Amazon sometimes, its for free, ie at the cost of the books or gadgets, but it would be so, so cool to do it as a job.
