Do you like what you do for a living?

Recommended Posts

I have to admit I don't love my job. I'm a legal secretary for a large law firm. I love the attorneys I support but I don't love the firm. It used to be a really nice homey place and now it's turned into big business. Not my style. sad.gif

I have to agree with James. I LOVE my job as a photographer. For me, it's a second career. I was a lawyer and wound up doing IT consulting for large government contractors for several years. Now, I'm around happy people and feel like I produce something that really matters. Definitely follow your passions!

I'm an accountant. I started out really loving it. But it has gotten to the point where the workload is ridiculous and the firm is short staffed and it is Saturday and I am working all day, working all day tomorrow, after putting in 75 hours already this week. The work is challenging, it pays well, I just do not like feeling so overwhelmed and stressed with these deadlines and I am starting to wonder if this is the right place for me.

 

It's a toss up I guess because I do love the work, I just do not appreciate the volume. Anyone else have that problem?

I love my job! I am a nurse in a small rural hospital so we deal with anything and everything that comes through the doors. I missed working while I was off on maternity leave, and my first shift back started with a delivery and finished with a patient having a heart attack and I was standing there watching him incase we had to shock him back! We had the electrodes on him and ready to go incase we needed them.

I love what I do and it is also a great company and wonderful benefits. I'm just really bored now. I've been doing it for 8 years and I need something else to do.

I was a New Anchor/Investigative Reporter for 13 years (several small news/talk radio stations, then NBC and FOX TV networks). I quit when it wasn't fun anymore, but I had very successful career. More than two dozen Associated Press Awards, SC Reporter of the Year, Emmy wins and nominations, etc.

 

Now, I sell wine and absolutely LOVE my job. I expect to keep this as my second career until retirement. I work with restaurants, country clubs and bars mostly, as well as some fine wine shops. We have a portfolio of about 4,000 wines and I will taste wines with my customers and help them configure their wine lists. Plus, I get to travel to a lot of different areas of the country and other countries for training at different vineyards, etc,

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
