For those of us that worked/work seasonally, this concept of a 'real job' seems to always bubble up to the surface of our thoughts and emotions. Whether it's our own personal pressure we tend to put on ourselves, or it comes from our parents, peer group etc. You know, the friends that already have their Masters and are working in 'their fields'. The ones who are completely befuddled by our lifestyle choice and say things to us like - "When are you ever going to grow up?"
Well, what the heck IS a 'real job' anyhow? And who exactly decides that? Are we caving when we let others determine that for us? OR are we finally growing up?
And oh yeah...WHY doesn't working seasonally qualify???
Let's hear what you guys have to say on this matter.
