    I sell books.

    It's hard not to love selling books.

    I love writing and drawing comics (hey, if I have to pay taxes, it's a job!)

    I also love the people I work with/for at my other job. If it were different people, I'd have quit LONG ago.

    I'm good at my job as a legal clerk, it pays very well, but I absolutely hate it after ten years.

    I love making comics. Hopefully someday that will be my full time job.

    I do a lot of different things in a student bookshop. Depending how much of certain tasks I have to do, it varies. The days I get to decide which TPBs, CDs and DVDs to buy in, I love my job. The days I have to carry huge boxes about and count 300 copies of one book (by hand) in order sure to make we've got everything we've been invoiced for, I hate. Most days, I sorta like it.

    I don't enjoy my accounting job, but it pays the bills. At least I like the other co-workers in the office.

    I didn't really like my previous 2 office jobs either. I enjoyed teaching English in Japan, and art in the US, but the former was only for a limited time, and the latter didn't pay the bills.

    I move around my factory job because of lay-off's, OT, and internal job bidding. It's okay. It's not the most mentally stimulating but when it's slow I sometimes sneak in my drawing pad and kick out some comics drawings. But I usually only have time for crossword puzzles.

    My best job was probably when I was an airbrush artist at an independent amusement park that later became Six Flags New England.

    I mostly hate my current job, although there are days where it isn't so bad.

    I absolutely hated my last job. It was a retail job. If it wasn't for my co workers I wouldn't have been there for 6 years.

    After everything has been said and done, I absolutely don't ever want a job where I have to answer phones. I hate phones.

    My "career" is technically a writer, and I enjoy writing stories and enjoy even more when they're bought, but my day job is currently working at Arby's. It's a job, don't really care either way.
    Everyone has a price. Some are cheaper than others.

    The solution to every problem you'll ever have: get over it.

    I like my co-workers and the work I'm doing can get interesting (and I get to go on YABS a lot). Management baffles me sometimes, but otherwise I'd say I like it were I am.
