Whats everyone's obsession with finding a job with purpose or fun?I mean to want a job with purpose implies you think your life matters compared to everyone else who is simply a statistic and that you have to do some grandstanding thing with your life. Then with the whole fun issue, I don't see why work has to be super fun. Have work be work and use the quality of...

An alumni banker just asked me how I felt about working at a regional office of an upper MM in Austin. My thoughts are anything is better than living in Memphis (save Detroit).
