I spent the first 10 years of my career doing something that my college degree had prepared me for, but that I found utterly dreadful on a day-to-day basis. I remember how depressing Sunday nights always used to be because all I could think about was having to go into work on Monday morning! For the past 15 years I have been working a job that "fits" me as a person and there is hardly a day where I'm not "chomping at the bit" to get to work!
