    Thanks--I don't need the age version.. the "how old am I" app is depressing enough. :0!

    Some feign it and some don't. Like everything else, some work experiences are good and some suck. I agree that there are soul-sucking jobs, but if you can find one that is fun and fulfilling for you,...
