    At the moment I am full-time DAD and loving every minute of it. I have no regrets in waiting half a century before having kids.

    I don't trust anyone who makes good money and throws it around like that, do you?

    I LOVE my job. I'm am a bean-counter who masquerades as a portfolio manager these days. Fortunately the masquerade is to the liking of my bosses. I love the job, the new city I live in, the people I work with (for the most part), everything but the programmers who effed up our system conversion as of 7/1 and we're still picking up the pieces, missing reporting deadlines, worrying the Trustees, etc. Nothing's perfect, though, and this shall pass too.

    Nope, partly because I am not really doing what I am educated in. I applied for the position of Sys Admin and I am doing stuff that is the complete opposite of that way outside of IT. I am giving it one more year and I am out. Strategically looking in the mean time.

    I've done a couple of industries: Retail, Sales/PR, Project management (hated it before). I'm transitioning into a more creative field! I'd like to become a teacher/professor (in either US/World history or Literature) and become a published screenwriter/writer! Dream jobs yeah! Done some side acting/modeling work when I was younger, wasn't really for me though! icon_smile.gif

    After we retired, Chuck took on a bigger job than defending our nation: maintaining organization in our household. Bill, however, rose to the challenge of additional time on hand to create chaos to ensure that Chuck's new assumed job was exceptionally challenging (and hopefully rewarding). ( icon_lol.gif but dead-on right!)

    My job that started out as a dream job. I worked my own hours, was prominent and well-respected, and provided something to my community that no one else got to do. Also, the higher-ups stayed deliberately off my back and let me do what I needed to do to be successful.

    There was a leadership change a few years ago, and in the ensuing political maneuvering, I got shuffled under someone with a malicious axe to grind. Without going into whiny details, the job is a living hell now, and I can't wait for the opportunity to make a positive change. Apathy is a horrible career demotivator.

    Good luck having that opportunity present and executing on it as quickly as possible. Sadly as short as life is, so are most of our bank accounts without our livelihoods. Saw your profile says as of July you're looking to pursue the change in South Florida. Best of luck to you!

    PS: Maybe in the meantime a house will fall on your boss, and only his wing tips will be left of him! We can dream, right? icon_wink.gif

    I work for the federal government so hopefully I'll be able to go back to my job sometime soon. I really enjoy the work and the pay is pretty good.

    I'm military and work at communications, my job currently has me stationed at my first state side base and I've been here for three years now. I'm used to moving every two years and couple that with half my time here has had me put into the role of the administrative bitch so I can't even do my real job it makes me feel like I'm in the fifth circle of hell.

    If you can't live on that, then you are either insane or doing something extremely wrong with your life. Not being nasty - but you need some things checked with your debt management, tastes, or how large a lifestyle you feel you need. If you knew what I made you'd wonder how I ATE, much less managed a mortgage...(!) AND afford a gym.

    FIX it.

    Would if I could but my enlistment ends in two years which will leave me at year eleven. If I don't stay in for the full twenty at that point I'll most likely regret it at some point in the future. The retirement bonus for the rest of my life would be well worth it.

    Gave up 18 years of nursing and went back to school to pursue what I really wanted to do in life. I love what I'm doing right now despite a meager salary while on training. In 3 years time it would be different when it comes to finances but money doesn't define fulfillment; achieving one's passion in life is the epitome of being self actualized.icon_biggrin.gif

    I love my job. I've taught English as a Second Language for 35 years, and I love it now more than ever. Got a great job. Totally in control of my own curriculum and classes, and I work with some of the smartest and most interesting people in the world...and they all think I'm SO cool and smart because I speak English!
