    Just curious to see how many people really enjoy what they do for a living or how many of you hate your job.

    I have been a hair designer for 20 years and self-employed for 10. I enjoy the freedom of being self-employed and all of the perks that it allows. I don't hate my job, but after 20 years I have started to question "Is this really what I am supposed to be doing?". I have always wanted to do something with animals, but sadly with no hands-on paying experience there really isn't anything that I could do that would provide a similar income in that field.

    Just curious to see how everyone else feels about their current job status!

    I love my job. I do system/computer related stuff (using non-technical terms here :))for a mortgage company and it's not so much the job (although it is prett great!) as it is the people. If I had one wish it would be to become a computer animator but I don't see that happening this late (HA! if you can call 28 years old late) in life (don't have time or money for more schooling) but we'll see!

    HATE IT!!! I do environmental work. I also want to work with animals but have no experience except with my boxers. My other dream is to open either a bakery ( I love to cook) or a dog boutique/bakery... If only.

    Love it

    I actually left my dream job (for good) 3 days before I was to return from maternitiy leave. I couldn't do 14+ hr days anymore with a son (guilt). I am now the Creative Director for a Design & Print firm. I happened to be in the right place at the right time to have ended up here. It was like fate. I am doing exactly what I was doing in the city but 25 minutes from home. They know and respect that my babies (furry and skin) are my life, oh and DH too. haha

    In addition, I am still working with high profile clients I have worked with in the past so it is pretty cool to meet up with them again. Basically, I manage the art department and do plenty of design myself.

    I got very lucky and am so grateful for the way things worked out :). Heck I deserve it after the dues I paid for 10+ years. lol

    currently, I totally OMG hate my job!!! Since I made the choice to go back to school, I left the paralegal job that i loved for a job that payed more, with less responsibility (ok no responsibility!) and no stress. It is a wonderful job for someone in school, most days I do nothing but homework and surf BW ;) But, I feel worthless, and its mind numbing most of the time. I dont even like the people. BUT - - I can see the end of my schooling - 2 more semesters! yeah!! That's what gets me through most days. Then, it's off to law school and on the road to being self-employed :D :D a dream come true and its nearly in sight!!

    I love it...today

    Most days I love my job. I work in the Human Resources department of a Manufacturing Plant. Let's just say there is never a dull moment around here! And I get along well with "most" of my fellow co-workers. It is a very laid back enviroment. But there are days that I know I'm not getting paid what I'm worth, but that goes without saying in a small town like I live in. The same job in a city would pay much more, but I like being only a mile from the school in case the kids need me and my boss is excellent when it comes to family obligations!

    I love my job. I'm a community cancer nurse, anyone who has a cancer or terminal diagnosis, I see to their nursing needs in their own home. Of course I have bad days but feel that I have really made a difference to that person and their families lives. I see any body over the age of 5 so many days i get to play with kids, their dogs, cats, bunnies etc!! On a personal note The area I cover is exactly where i live, so I can pop home 2 or 3 times a day to let Harry out for a quick walk or play with a ball in the garden.

    I love it now. I do level 2 technical support so I have time to resolve and don't have to worry about taking calls (that was terrible!) Before when I was a level below I was on the phones ALL DAY LONG and I hated it.
    I'm studying accounting though because eventually I'd like to get out of computers. I think I'd love that because I love working with numbers and budgeting and balancing!

    I love my job. I am a paralegal and enjoy what I do tremendously. I began to dislike it a lot when I was working in the firm I was before I came to where I am now. I hated the other women I had to work with and I despised the Senior Partner..I never earned anything from him except a slap on the rear and then that was it, I was outta there! Thankfully now I work for a great guy. He's a good ethical attorney and just a good person in general. I feel very fortunate to be where I am. I really want to go to law school in the future when my kids get a little older and I will revisit that thought when I feel like I'm ready. As Evie & Adam's mom can tell you, it's not an easy thing to do and takes a great deal of time & commitment. You must be ready mentally, physically & monetarily. Some day I will be :)
