I'm amazed. I really like being an engineer even after 40+ years including being sacked or laid off 4 times, turning down what I'd imagined was my dream job missing what I'd imagined were 3 dream jobs and not making the cut for 3 more. Since I started on my own I've never worked harder or been more pleased about it.

The weirdest thing of all is that I thought my life was over at 18 when I failed a flight physical because of a slightly lazy eye, just before learning (the hard way) what a disaster I would have been in the Air Force. Watch out what you dream for--it might come true.
