A little while ago, Michael D’Agostino, of A Life Examined, brought up the idea of a new blog hop called Question of the Month. He thinks blog readers would like to know a little more about us, the bloggers. So we’re all gathering to show you guys who we are by taking part in the Question of the Month blog hop. On the first Monday of each month, we answer the question that gets posted here.
This month’s question is: “What’s the best job you’ve ever had?”
I’ve had many jobs and most I haven’t thought were what I’d consider a dream job, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t like some of them. When I worked as an admin for a local production company, the hours were good, the office was quiet, making my tedious but simple task pleasant to do, but the pay was a joke.
When I had a nice paying job, the work sucked the life out of me. Now that I’m a special education teacher’s assistant, I don’t even think about money, it would just be cruel to myself to do so. Respect is out the window as well since teachers are currently the scapegoats for everything wrong with society even though we don’t have any control over the system. I do this job solely for the kids.
So, looking back at all the jobs I’ve done, I’d have to say college tutor was my best gig. For that time and place in my life, the pay was good, the hours were great, the clients were willing and cooperative adults who wanted my help and I wanted to help them.
The only job that could possibly top that would be if I could somehow manage to work from home making enough to pay my bills and still write.
Please check out the other participants in this hop and even join in if you’d like.
