    This is a very interesting topic.

    I am 45 years old and in this job immediately after I've finished a college of nice arts. I have a day job as a designer more than 20 years and I design for clients over the net for a past few years in the same time.

    I am very satisfied with my job; I have a very good boss and nice income, I bring my dog in my office - every day, I do what I love, through the years I bought my own flat, my health insurance is covered and, in fact, I work from 9 am till 2.30 pm. Sometimes I forget to be grateful on what I have.

    There is a plan that I become a boss one day, when my boss get retired, but I don't wish this to happens soon - it is much nicer to design than worry about the bills and taxes!

    Yes, sure, there are days when I complain and when I am lazy, but I suppose this is normal. But there are some changes through the years; I do have more experience, but less energy. Sometimes I don't have enthusiasm for some tasks as before. I don't learn new technical things, just when I am forced to it. I suppose I will continue to do what I do. I also don't have a feeling that I know everything. Far from that. This is a reason to go on...
