National Blog Posting Month – December 2012 – Work
Prompt – What is the hardest job you’ve ever done?
Hardest job ever?
Parenting. Hands down. No contest. No comparison.
Toughest job I’ve ever done for a paycheck?
Graduate student. Lousy paycheck (though still pretty decent, really). Long hours. Little respect. Nightmares. Uncertain outlook.
Positive aspects of both jobs?
Rewarding. Meaningful outcome. ‘Character building’ (whatever that is).
If I had it to do over, would I?
