Since we are in the discussion of money, what was your first paying job? Did you enjoy your time there or dreaded every moment of it? How did you get that job? For me, I am still on my first paying job. I am an engineer on a tech firm. Enjoying it so far, yet it can be stressful. I have to contend with the constant running of the machines while I crunch data in the factory. I had that job immediately after college since I was a scholar of the company. Return-service.
