EDIT: As a prequel ... your salary is not a valid reason for this thread ... maybe for another thread ... but not this thread.
I've been reading threads from the music section and I've just realised (after 6 years) how much joy I get working with kids.
Now, If you were a kid and you knew me ... I give you a structured time in class ... but I give you enough time to enjoy computers because that is what sustains your enthusiasm for this industry.
But sometimes I indulge myself (and kids ... they are easily entertained) and play grade 1-3 kids songs through my PC speakers (strong enough for a class). The delight on their faces for something so dismissable as Kurt Darren's "Kaptein" really gives me mental energy.
If I continue to play Katy Perry's "Hot n Cold" I usually make their day.
