There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.

Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.

Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.

    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 Posts: 40,745 ✭✭✭✭
    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 ✭✭
    Thank you @slhvtnds , anyway i will find a solution , i am curious to know the second job of @mheredge , it is secret ? Were you a CIA agent @mheredge lol
  • mheredgemheredge Posts: 40,745 ✭✭✭✭
    I have several jobs - writing, editing, auditing - a bit of lots of different things which halps make life very interesting @JMAROUF. I'm a bit of a jack of all trades.
