    I love what I do and

    that my director understands completely that I have obligations outside of the workplace. He told me that as long as my work is satisfactory and the clients are smiling, "it's all good." So much stress lifted off of my shoulders with that simple statement. I am ready to take on...

    I have a love/hate relationship with my job.

    Which may mean I have a love/hate relationship with people, and with that I will absolutely concur. Ironically enough, in the industry I work in I feel that my co-workers can be so pretentious at times; that doesn't sit well with me. I feel most people are pretensions, so I...
