Just out of curiosity, what do you all do for a living? Do you enjoy it?
I work in a locally owned flower shop and I love it. Also, today I applied for a job at a new organic food store opening up down the street to fill up the few days each week I have off from the flower shop. 🙂
P.S. I added a poll because we all love polls. 😉

I am the Director of Annual Giving for a University Foundation. I don’t love it. I don’t hate it.
Twice a week I also teach Body Pump at Gold’s Gym. I love it!
If I had my druthers I would be doing something with dogs.

I’m an operator (supervise computers, create trouble reports for any issues, and answer phones) for a university. It’s part-time while I’m in school studying accounting (~25-30 hr/wk).
EDIT: I neither like nor dislike my job. I wouldn’t want to do it forever, but it’s simple and pays my bills (except tuition).

I’m an office manager (& only employee 3/4 of the year) for an online dog supply store. I can bring my dog (& kittens) to work. I can’t wait til next month when I get to have a co-worker :). I like it except it can become really lonely (being the only one here & no customers in person). I love the flexibility & that I bring pets to work 🙂
On the side I’m a photographer, sr pics, weddings, & pets are my favs :). I love this!

part 2 of this question: does anybody really love their job? there must be someone!
i like my job. working from home is a big perk, albeit lonely as hell. the pay is right, the hours couldn’t be more flexible, my coworkers are like family to me, and i get paid a salary as a full-time employee for work that really only takes me 20-30 hours/week to complete. so i like it. i can’t complain. but it’s definitely not my life’s passion. i have a master’s in medieval art & religion….it would be nice to use that some day. i would also love to own my own business. i don’t even care what said business would do. FI and i used to work together and we would love to do that again.

I’m an engineer by degree but my hired position is in Regulatory Affairs for a medical device company. We’re basically the liason between the company and the FDA. I don’t enjoy it (translation – I HATE my current job) and plan to switch jobs once the time period I contracted to is up.
I’ve gotton some exposure to the job I’d like to switch to once my contract is up (it’s with the same company) and I think I’d honestly be able to say then that I love my job (assuming it all works out). The position is called a clinical specialist and they actually go into the OR for the implants of devices and help program the devices for the patients. Dream job! 🙂 Now I just have to get it!
