Chelsea Aragon Freshman Seminar D November 19, 2007 Multi-Draft #2 The Components of my Future Ideal Job A job is something one should enjoy and not see their everyday task as work, but as doing something they love and not getting caught up in their work.

If your job does not make you happy you will not be happy plain and simple. For example, a teacher of any type should enjoy their jobs each and everyday in stimulating young minds. One time I encountered a teacher who did not care and seemed to not love their job as much as the other teachers I had at the time. The teachers who loved their jobs I learned a lot from, but the teacher who seemed to hate their job I learned only a handful of things from instead of useful knowledge.
