This is pretty far off topic, but curious what kinds of jobs people have or had and if you liked it or not. Share if you want.
I am a geologist and although I enjoyed school, real world jobs are nothing like school and I have found it difficult to enjoy my work. Lots of travel and overnights to non-glamorous places. Pay has been sub-par and usually hard work. Anything from lots of physical labor to sitting at a computer for weeks frying my brain over data sets or reports. I haven't works in natural resources which is where I would probably liked to be, but jobs are so volatile in that sector...like oil.
I am 10+ years into my career and I just can't think I can sustain it for another 20-30 years without it killing me mentally and physically.
*Note I am not a lazy person. I frequently work 10 or 12 hour days, at night and on weekends.*
