This week we’re talking about Labor Day and careers/jobs.  Let’s get to it!

I celebrated Labor Day by.……. doing regular house stuff.  I am fortunate my company gives us this day off. I cut up cantaloupe, did laundry, writing and later on getting my hair cut.  Pretty boring huh?

My dream job/career would be…….Ok, it’s weird that we’re talking about this topic!  I’ve been struggling with my job for awhile now.  Just feeling like there has got to be more to life than this.  So it’s been weighing heavily on my mind the past few weeks.  But the problem is, I’ve been at my job for almost 25 years.  I grew up there.  I don’t know anything different.  And I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.  LOL

My first paying job was……. wow, so long ago!  I was in high school and worked at Dairy Queen!  I didn’t like it much, but I did work with some of my friends, so that made it OK.  I can still make the infamous Dairy Queen “swirl” on the top of a cone.  Yep.

My current job is…….. I talk about it frequently….LOL  I do customer service work for a dental manufacturer.  I am burned out; however.  Big time.  I am currently on a mission to consider what else might be out there for me.  I usually draw a blank though.

Now it’s your turn…..tell me all about it in the comments!

  1. Oh how I relate with the job thing! It's that loyalty thing some of us have πŸ™‚ I had a lot of friends work at DQ when they were younger – my boyfriend included!! That was where the "cool kids" worked. ha ha.

  2. I agree with the job. I've been at mine for 7 years after I left teaching. I'd love to find the job I love, but now that we have kids and a house, it's so much more difficult to make the switch. But my brother discovered at 39 that he wanted to get into physical therapy. Now he's 40 and going back to school full time to become a physical therapy asst.

  3. It is so hard when you are burnt out! I felt that way coming out of last school year. This year seems more promising, but still not sure if it is what I want to do anymore. It gets hard when you are settled to imagine what life would be like if you left to try something new. Security and stability are important, but so is enjoying what you do everyday.

  4. First job…I get a hankering to go hang out in front of the soft serve ice cream machine at the local smorgasbord just so I can top off their ice cream cone with the "Q". And, while earning a whopping $3.12/hr, I gained a life long skill!
    Dream job, serving on medical relief teams in third world countries.
