Jobs are strange. I have a love hate relationship with mine.
I like it because it’s hard. Most days I run into something I haven’t before and I have to figure out how to fix it. I like that. I like getting a paycheck. It allows me to rest easy. I get to live in a cozy place, I have food on the table, a fast internet connection, the works. That bit is nice.
I like that I get to go to a lot of new places. I’ve traveled quite a bit this year and that’s been really fun. Albeit, not to the most exotic places. But you can find beauty anywhere if you just look.
The hate is there. Well more the dislikes. Which I think are mostly ruled by fantasies of being a professional writer, spending my days writing and tending to my farm.
When it really comes down to it it isn’t something I hate at all. The positives certainly outweigh the negatives. While I wish I didn’t have to spend so much of my day working for someone else. Maybe right now it’s exactly where I need to be.
