"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

    I am lucky to have lots of little jobs, all of which I love (I wouldn't do them if I didn't like them). But I know I am in a very fortunate position @JMAROUF. I know how miserable it is to be in a job you don't like as in the last couple of years I was in regular employment, I hated my job.

    that is bad to work without consent , your are lucky , some people have to look for opportunities during their work periods and even when they go to home and that bothers .

    Job satisfaction is so important @JMAROUF. I think everyone wants to feel that there is a purpose to what they are doing, and that the job has some value.

    Normally yes @mheredge however lot of people doesn't feel the satisfaction in their job , and specially the first job , they work because they need money and if they don't find another opportunity the life become difficult

    Sure I love. Someone said that;
    İf you find the job that you love, you shouldn't have to work in your life because your hobby is your work anymore.

    What kind of job @slhvtnds ?
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 36,096 mod
    My first job as a teacher didn't last long @JMAROUF though I loved my second job.

    But now the work I do is much more akin to being like a hobby @slhvtnds. So it is very enjoyable.

    @mheredge you are lucky , for me is different i don't like my job so much , and i am looking for another opportunity

    I am a mechanical enginner @JMAROUF . I am working in a ship design company. Actually being an engineer can not be clasified as a hobby. I meant by saying;

    "İf you find the job that you love, you shouldn't have to work in your life because your hobby is your work anymore."

    that if you begin to like your department/field, your work is becoming your hobby.

    I hope you will get a better job @JMAROUF as soon as possible / or you love your current job. Don't be disappointed.

    @mheredge; to be teacher is my second favoute job that I wish to perform (to childeren). However I have no any academical skills about that. What is your second job @mheredge ?
  • JMAROUFJMAROUF Posts: 104 ✭✭
