I prefer this over working 9-5 everyday with only 20 days off/weekends. The main reason I got into the field I am in is because of work hours.

I'm dead serious when I say this, but the movie "Office Space" changed my entire life.

Edit:

Its like this..

Peter Gibbons: Let me ask you something. When you come in on Monday, and you're not feelin' real well, does anyone ever say to you, 'Sounds like someone has a case of the Mondays'?
Lawrence: No. No, man. ****, no, man. I believe you'd get your ass kicked sayin' something like that, man.

Edit.. here is the real quote.

PETER
Ok, will do. This isn't so bad, huh?
Making bucks, getting exercise, working outside...

LAWRENCE
*****' A.

PETER
*****' A...

Its even better to work one month on, one month off. I really want to take a cross country trip next year and will likely do this. Saving up 5% of paycheck from this year to next year.

I thought that would make you happy! I definitely plan on spending some time in Indiana! I also noticed the route avoids Pittsburgh and Gettysburg-- so I'd adjust accordingly closer to time.
