Perfect Job

No one is ever like, man, can't wait to reconcile ledgers for research grants 30 hours a week, but we end up in random jobs all the time that don't seem real, were never expected, and couldn't even have been predicted to us 15 years ago. Many of them could, in fact, be called "bullshit," the sort the world can do just fine without. It's seductive to think the right job could make everything fall into place in the world and you'll be content from there on out, but no job is likely to provide that perfect blend of challenge and validation forever to complete your existence.

I'm aware that this is just her opinion, but hearing this was like having a huge, heavy, shame-y brick removed from my shoulders.
