In some ways yes and in some ways no.
I can identify with the video for sure:
5 years of undergrad (2 bachelors)
2 years of Master's
6 years for PhD
To become.....drum roll please.....A PROFESSOR!
I teach statistics (something I never set out to teach, but its fun) and psychology.
I knew I was going to be some kind of teacher as early as 9th grade. Previous career goals were (in order): writer, poet, astronaut, writer, english teacher, english professor, psychology professor, therapist, psychology professor. I get to all of that stuff now, but it took me much much much longer to do it than I ever thought, and it was much much much harder than I thought it would be. I LOVE my job, but I don't make as much money as I thought. Well, to tell the whole truth, I make MORE money than I thought I would but now I realize how little that money actually is. I make about $52,000 if I also teach in the summer. My original money goal was $30,000. Clearly, I'm from a blue-collar family that knew nothing about money. But, I have a lot of school debt. I'm managing it well, because I'm smart and disciplined, but the monthly payments keep me pretty modest in what I can actually afford. My job also takes up more time than I thought. I work probably 50-60 hours a week. 8am to 8pm days are not uncommon for me. And, I work on weekends sometimes, too. Often Saturday and Sunday.
BUT, sometimes (and sometimes happens quite frequently) I look around when I am standing in front of a classroom, or leading a class through a discussion, or listening to students debate, or watch the work that students create and marvel that I am involved in all of this. I love, and am quite proud of, my teaching style. I am constantly redirecting comments and questions and frustrations toward learning. When a student has something to add, I tie it into something BIGGER; when a student has a question, I try to help her find the answer; when a student is frustrated, I help him see how a clear and calm mind is the first step to the answer. It can be draining; it can be energizing.
This is a really great question, specifically for me right now, because I have been realizing that I haven't been allowing myself to be aware of it all as much as I should. I just posted on facebook today "May your journey be as fun as your destination" because I wanted to remind people, mainly myself, to laugh more and play more and enjoy more. I am trying to find ways to make my job more manageable right now so that I'm not working 50 - 60 hour weeks.
My solution at this point is to use time management to allow that to happen. Meditation, free time, relaxation, play time, creative time, hikes, writing, etc. can be as easily fixed in a schedule as a faculty meeting. Sundays can be mandatory free days, totally unscheduled. The day must end at 5 so that I can get to my next meeting: free writing about things that open my mind, things that make me stop and look around the room (as you might be doing right now) and say "wow, here I am".
