16 hour work days

I had a 16 hour work day on Thursday. You want to know the sad bit? I use to have those more often and I miss them! Yes, that's right. I actually enjoyed working for such a long period of time. I know I'm not alone, but I also know there's a lot of people out there that don't enjoy working those long hours.

However, at the end, when I got home. I felt that I had accomplished something and that it wasn't a complete waste of time.

Now what other industries are there were people have to work for such long periods of time? I'm guessing Doctors.

The other day I read something interesting about how most people in other industries don't go home to continue "working" - a lot of people in the tech industry will go home and sit at their computer. They may update their website or their blog or test some code or something like that... However, you won't see a neurosurgeon go home to test something on their cat.

Well, it's time to go to bed.
