This Morning
What an exceptional day I had yesterday! Now if only I could code a little faster.

Sometime like this always pops up when I’m suddenly underworked.

“Do what you love and the money will follow” is great in theory, but the truth of the matter is, certain jobs and fields simply pay more. The Bureau of Labor Statistics National Compensation Survey, published in August 2004, showed that white-collar earnings — which averaged $21.85 per hour — were the highest among occupational groups. Blue-collar pay averaged $15.03 per hour, while the hourly pay of service occupations averaged just $10.40.
