Dollars and Cents...*

Today's post topic is courtesy of Doug from Waking Ambrose. Yesterday Doug asked me the following question:
What will your next job be?

I am ashamed to admit I have no idea.

I'm relatively pleased with my current job. It's not stressful, I am adequately compensated, and it is a very quiet environment. My job provides me with a place to go during the day, something to fill my time, and spending/saving money. I am content.

I don't usually actively seek employment, opportunities just arise, so my next job is a mystery. Perhaps I'll be a volunteer, a home maker, a philanthropist, or a student. The world holds many options for those with no set direction.

I agree. I won't say I'll never change jobs, but I'm satisfied with the one I have now.

I'm not pursuing another job, but I would listen if someone asked or ask if I saw something interesting.

I suspect you are young and have time to decide on a direction; nothing to be ashamed of. Not everyone has a set goal anyway. At least you're content in your job; how many people can say that?

Some people have fallen into interesting & satisfying careers by accident. Maybe that will be you. :-)

I don't think people realize that being content in a job is even possible.
Having said that, I am not so content.
So my husband and I decided to become EMT's spur of the moment the other day. We will work on getting into school next year. We have a whole 12 months to seriously consider this. I hope it works out.

Your screen name argues for philanthropy. Anomie is the basic ingredient.

I really like the simplicity [and I don't mean that it is "simplistic" per se] expressed here. In many ways, it is the way that I look at my own 8 to 5 employment.
I am not a professional.
I once thought I would be.
Had some severe disappointments along those lines, truth be known.
I am about [a conservative estimate] 350 times more intelligent than my job requires me to be!
But, I have had to focus upon the many good things it provides me, and let go of the many things I cannot have, because of it. Find an equilibrium.
And overall, my job, EVEN my job, has a lot of good points to it. One of which is the fact that when I leave the place every day, it is OVER!
Many of my professional friends take their work home with them.
That blows!
Mind you, they can buy boats!
I content myself in the knowledge that I can ride around on lakes.... on THOSE boats, for free.
And my job currently allows me to live in a primo-supremo apartment, overlooking a supremo gorgeous city.
And.... umm...
My cat's not starving, either!

No plan is the best plan. Just get the most out of life. And don't work too hard.
