Not quite sure what you’re asking here, but I’ll give it a shot.
I always wanted to be an astronaut. That quickly switched to computer repairman. I changed my mind to author after 5 years of removing porn from people’s computers. I switched to journalist after I realized I lose interest in year-long projects. I switched to Technical Writer once I realized I can’t pump out a story a day. And now I’m a Technical Writer and I’m liking it.
I maintain a fairly strict line between work and home. I won’t allow work to follow me home unless it’s extremely urgent. I don’t think it’s cut into my home life much at all. Fixing computers, on the other hand, means I’m more like a doctor - I’m on call all the time. I don’t miss that.
Nope. I’m happy as a Technical Writer, and if I got another job, it’d be in the same role.
I spent ~ 40, 45 hours a week at work. 0 of that is spent looking for another position at the moment.
I have 3-4 years of hands-on experience and about 2 years of classroom experience. So I’m relatively new at it, but better than most college grads at the moment.
