I love my job, I really do, but from time to time I really envy those people who have a job that is just and 8-5. I mean I would probably go crazy, but there are times when I think it would be cool to stick a rivet in a hole for 8 hours and then come home and not think about work again until the next day.
Of course that only happens on weeks like this when it seems like I am working 12 hour days just to get everything done and I have meetings on top of meetings (I bounced between 2 different meetings tonight). But sometimes I wish I had a real day job and not this all consuming calling.
Alright that isn’t true. If I wasn’t getting paid to do this I would be doing it for free and working another job to pay the rent. Working with students is my passion and even though I forget sometimes it is God’s great gift to me that I get to do this as my profession.
