Me, that's who.
I really love my job...I also really like getting paid for it, so I can do other things I really like.
Like pay my bills!
I also like being better able to focus...my background is solidly and proudly working class. My mom came from mill workers and military, my dad from coal miners and military (we believe in service). I am the first in my family to graduate college, and I was graduated from a state university in my home state. Nothing fancy here.
And I know from experience what it is like not to have enough money to pay my bills. I know, and wish I didn't, how long you can put off paying certain utilities before they get cut off.
I haven't been in that position in years, far longer than I have worked for the Department. But I remember it...and I never want to go there again.
So yeah, really really happy to be at work today.
