People and their happiness...

One of the best things about my job is hearing about all the good (and sometimes bad) things that happen to people. The point of the job is not to give any advice and you don’t even know their names, but sometimes they tell you about things they find very important. People have been happy about their recent engagement, excited about new puppies, preparing their 50-year-anniversary as married. Sometimes their news are sadder.
To me this is an honour, and I’m getting more and more convinced that I want to work with people in the future. People and their happiness is far more important than selling stuff, translating some manuals or drawing up EU-guidelines.

I'm working as a chat moderator for a Finnish game company, which means that I spend my evenings talking a lot of nonsense (and sometimes also about important matters) with people. It's really good because I can work from anywhere :D

What!? That must be an awesome job!! Mine it's less interesting
xD

Yup. It's a lot of fun and I was lucky to find it. Talking to people is fun, and since I want to start studying again in the autumn it's perfect because it's part time, but the salary is "Finnish" so I live more than well on it in Spain :D
I don't even know what you do: something with computers, right? :)
