I love what I do.

www.stpetersjax.org (my sig is messed up but this will take you to the real site). I have become a fan of C# and Visual Studio over the last year and a half. We have written 3 applications at Bank of America using C# and the development went very quickly.
I love what I do. Well, I'm in Logistics and Embarkation so I don't always love what I do. During unit moves when I'm doing embarkation, building pallets and loading gear into aircraft & on the ships I'm happy as a pig in slop. The rest of the time, when I'm doing logistics, requesting vehicle support and chow and all the other garbage my unit thinks it needs, I'm not too happy. :p
But I'm moving up quickly in rank, (E-5 looking at E-6 by my 7 year mark) so gradually I'll put up with less and less bs, so that's always good! :D
This is interesting. Most of them seem to enjoy what we do for a living. I wonder (and I suspect I know the answer) what the responses would be if this question was posted on DU. Maybe this is a fundamental difference between libs and conservatives. They hate what they do or working in general, so they get wrapped up in intangibles in order to gain some sense of involvement and accomplishment.
I like what I do. Love is too strong a word for me. I can't really think of anything I'd "love" to do.
I design and build computer systems that kill people.
OF COURSE I LOVE IT!
I don't love what I do but I recognize that it is essential to many other people and is important in the big scheme of things so there is a great job satisfaction. I'm doing something now that is important for my country.
I intend to be doing what I love in a year or two after my third retirement. That will be teaching downhill skiing in the winter and whitewater kayaking in the summer.
