"Really. This job is a piece of cake. I've tried farming, logging, etc. Making way less money, completely exhausted every day, wondering if I'll even make it home each day. Plus there's nothing better than working with a cohesive team on cutting-edge technology. The only bad thing about making a lot of money, is you tend to build up your lifestyle to then require it, rather than it being a luxury, then afterwards it's very difficult to find another job that pays as well."
