A Good Nights Sleep

Back in the fraternity we had a Cold Air Dorm
What is a Cold Dorm? (Bustle)

I like to sleep on the floor (on a pad) and sleep weeks on the ground while camping
(after a night in a luxurious hotel bed I woke up practically crippled)

I like to go to “bed” early (and also get up early)

Obviously, winter in the Midwest is the best season for sleeping with long nights and cold temperatures

A Nap is also good thing

A Good Job

I remember my first job out of college and realizing the important difference between education and experience
(between going to school and going to work)

What a reality check. This is working for a living and I was terrified.
I knew I couldn’t bear to do this the rest of my life, so I went back to school.

And my boss wondered why I was going back to school

And my second job was a Good Job. I had a mentor, a man retired from a large company who had patience and time to teach me.

Since we spend a good deal of time on the job, it is important to have a Good Job.

Imagine how important it is to look forward of going to work?
What a blessing it is to have a job that challenges and delights you.

Oh, to have:
An understanding boss
A company capable of paying you the compensation which you deserve

Over my years in the workforce, I have experienced large companies and small companies, generous employers and greedy bastards, pleasant work environments and one where I feared transporting cockroaches or bed bugs back to my home.

In my mind, the perfect job allows one to bike to work
I wish I was more environmentally proactive,
but my ride to work doesn’t spew noxious fumes into the air other the carbon dioxide which I exhale
(I dream of a work place which also has a shower)
