What Comes to Mind When You Think of the Word Job

I'm Asking: I Say Job and You Say...

A little stream of consciousness can go a long way, or so they say. Your feelings about your job probably vary from day to day, and sometimes they may even fluctuate during a day's work. I think it would be an interesting experiment to check in with your feelings about your job a few times a day just to see how they compare — it would be a pretty accurate way to give someone else a good idea of what a typical day is like in your swivel chair. I'm not asking you to check in with me all day (though you're more than welcome to do so!), but I am asking: what's the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word job?

Or work is something that deters me from things I want to do like yoga, run, walk when it's nice out because the second I step outside it's bleeping raining/colder than hell, or sleeping.
