I love my job. I’m sure you’ve heard me mention it once or twice in the past 7 months. Lately, its been like this big bright sign that I wake up to every morning. I enjoy going to work. I have a great team to work with. I work on a great project. I work for a great company.
I’ve had times where I didn’t want to get out of bed. This is the first job that I’ve been excited to get to work early. For the past several weeks, I’ve been carpooling with a team-mate. We get in early. I enjoy the extra time to be focused on my work.
Every single member of my team is awesome. Even the team members that are only part-time. Our group works with other groups in the company. I’m pretty sure we got the company A-Team. My team at work also happens to be a big part of my training team. We are in a recovery phase right now. But, for most of the last 6 months, I’ve been doing workouts with other guys from the group at least once a week. There was a few weeks where we were doing brick workouts together in the morning and working out together 4 or 5 times a week. We push each other in training and we really use the products we deliver.
I’m actually working on products that I was using before I got the job. On top of that, the products are a large part of enjoying my hobby! Could it get any better? I’m in my mid thirties and I’m still learning new technologies at work. I also get to flex my skills on technologies that I already know too. Daily there are problems challenge me and I enjoy every bit of it.
I have a job that feels like a hobby. Its a passion. I’m one of those guys that totally takes his hobbies one step too far. Yes. That is me. I have a job that totally revolves around my hobby. I get paid to do what I love to do.
Now that I think about it. I guess there is a little bit of guilt involved. How can I be so happy with my job? I know what it’s like to hate going in to work. I do remember but it feels like it was so long ago. Thanksgiving was last week. I’m very thankful for the opportunity that I’ve been given and the people that I get to work (and train) with.
