Since pooh & myself both love what we do, I was wondering if that really is strange. If talking about your job is depressing though, you don't have to vote!

It took me a while to like my 'break' from employment, but I do like being able to visit the Farmer's Market when it comes to town (It only visits in the morning), being able to surf the Internet and having time to read.
I'm also cooking proper meals now, when before I would come home from work and not be bothered with the time it could take to prepare something.
I spent 5 hours cooking a leg of lamb the other day. That would have been unthinkable when I was working!

... Mind you, I would love a part-time job!

No 7 because this kind of bean-counting cr@p reminds me far too much of my old civil service job when I would have been off the scale on the #6 choice :evil: :

But as I've been completely out of that particular 'wannabe corporate' cesspit in my life for almost 3 years I'm now at the other extreme (no half measures for this gal anymore :twisted: ) doing almost the same thing but for something I really enjoy and see a hell of lot more meaning and purpose in what I'm doing. :wink:

Ah Jan. I think you might be taking it a bit too seriously. I won't be collating & publishing this data you know :lol:

With Jan, it certainly won't be a normal distribution, and I can't think of anyone who the term "standard deviation" is more apt. :lol:

I hate my routine enough to warrant voting twice.

If only apprenticeships weren't dead, I'd actually feel productive with my education. Classes are dull and move too slowly. Most of the professors are uninspired. Some almost give the impression that they're there simply for the paycheck. The school won't even let me volunteer for peer counseling. I don't even want to get paid, I just want to stay in practice and learn some new things, but they refused. Just 3 more semesters after this one though.

Welcome Ohnhai! :D

I had to vote agree. I know how lucky I am to be able to stay home with the girls. This time will be gone too quickly. :( When they're both in school full time I'll either step up my volunteer work (film location scout for the MI Film Office/my city & committees for local events), or look for something to do at least part time.
