Yeah, I flunked out too, emshays. I had a really good job that I liked a lot, but the commute was a bit much, and I just decided that after working full time or almost full time for 35 years, it was enough! So I goofed around for a few months, then worked part time at my church for a bit (the pay was low, it was practically a volunteer job). But then my old, great boss called me back and said to name my conditions to come back. So I'm working 3 days a week, and one of those is at home in my jammies. I have the best of both worlds - I get to have lunch with my work friends once or twice a week, I have fun, interesting work and a pretty decent paycheck with bennies, but I have a 4-day weekend every week. It's a pretty good deal, and I'm really enjoying it. Everyone is different. If you are happy in whatever you are doing, then you are where you should be!
