  • Does the challenging job pay more? If not, I would certainly be going for the unchallenging job with the good schedule. You cannot afford to be picky right now. But, of course, this is my choice, you do with what you are most comfortable.

  • i have a really high stress job in the medical field and sometimes wish that i had a mindless job with the same pay and only work 2 days a week so that i can be with my baby. that's the job that i would like. i know that sounds bad, but its a nice thought.
