Now that President Obama has his dream job, I should really start thinking about finding one of my own.
I've never had a job that I've really loved or been devoted to. I can't imagine what such a job would be either.
It dawned on me recently that I have a commitment problem when it comes to choosing a career. In that way I'm not so much different than my single friends who have their own issues with committing.
Consider the evidence:
1. I'm picky. I don't want just any job where I mentally punch in, punch out and have to put forth very little effort.
2. I have unreasonably high expectations. I want to love the job and the job to love me back. I also want good benefits, a lot of vacation time, and to not have to feel guilty when I take time off to hang with my kids.
3. I'm in a long-term (going on three years now) relationship with a gig that doesn't pay me anything.
I could really use an employment yenta.
