Please (please) do what you love in life (and love what you do)
You never want to have a job that you look forward to Friday's every week and you dread Sundays. Of course we love the weekends and no job is going to make you leap out of bed every day excited to go to work (its called work for a reason) but please make sure that you at least have a passion for what you are doing and at the end of the day you feel as if you have accomplished something. I love what I do. Not every day (especially in September when the 2 year olds are getting used to school) but I really, really love it and I feel like I have accomplished something some days.
