Great day at work. I found my white whale, a job that I love going to.

Found an unlikely job that I have fallen in love with. I get to work with a wide variety of equipment and people in different areas of the organization. It's been one of those jobs that you don't hate going into on a Monday. I've been in communications training all week which is stuff I know very little about that has just been a blast. I can't be the only one out there that has a job that they enjoy. How about you people?

    ... unemployed.

    But that's awesome for you! A lot of people don't have the luxury to love their job and the people they work with. What sort of equipment do you work with? It kind of sounds somewhat IT-related.

      I work with radio equipment and to a lesser extent network equipment. I've got a pretty nice Ham radio room at work that I am slowly learning how to use, as well as a large amount of radio communications equipment. Radios, repeaters, gateways lots of fun toys that I can play with. It's our job to make sure that everyone can communicate in case of an emergency.

    Completely unemployed. Well, not completely. I sell my music as pay-what-you want and do some commissions for graphics but I wouldn't call them "jobs." I do enjoy those, however.

    Hopefully I have one of those. I'll know Monday when I start the new job. But for a few days I'll enjoy having no responsibilities whatsoever. :)

    I have had some horrible luck over the past decade of getting great jobs... great jobs that turn into shitshows within 2-3 years. Company restructuring, collapsing, buy-out, lay-off, you name it.

    Today... I am at a job I love. I work for someone I respect and who respects me. I honestly don't think I could be happier with my job. I no longer work 60-80 hours a week as I did for the previous 5 years before getting this job. Family Life/Work balance achieved.

    You can't get that time back with your family that you lose while working, even if you love that job. You will not wish you had worked more when lying on your deathbed.

    ProTip: Invest yourself in the people you work with. You will build bridges and make some great friends.

    Congrats /u/schrodingersman on finding something that you can enjoy doing. I sincerely am happy for you.

      Thanks I really appreciate that. I agree completely with having a work life balance. I learned that young from watching a good friend constantly spend time at work or working from home on the weekends. He makes a ton of money and has advanced quickly up the corporate ladder, but he doesn't get to spend much time with his wife. He doesn't get to spend a whole lot of that money doing anything because it's always work work work. One part of this job is that nine times out of ten I get out of work at 4:30 at the latest. I go in a bit earlier which is fine as I'm a morning person anyway. It allows me the freedom to spend tons of time with my family.
