Jeff: I get off work every day, and I’m so thankful that I love my job as much as I do. And I know not everyone feels that way.

Lily: I am so burned out(精疲力竭的,累坏的) right now. I’ve been working the same job for so long, and I feel like I’m about to go off the deep end(发疯,疯掉). The littlest task just makes me want to go crazy! I’m feeling really worn out right now.

Jeff: You don’t look at anything in your job as a challenge to overcome, or…?

Lily: Jeff, I work in data entry(数据录入).

Jeff: I feel like I’ve heard this before.

Lily: It’s hard to be inspired and to feel motivated when you’re doing the same thing over and over again for eight hours a day. I’m going to strive to be more like you where I actually love my job and am proud of what I’m doing and feel like I’m making a dent(有所进展,进步) in my life.

Jeff: Yeah, I used to have jobs like that. No light at the end of the tunnel. It just keeps going.

Lily: Well, I’ve been looking online, and I have a couple of leads on some new jobs. I’m just going to covertly(秘密的) interview for new things until I can find something I like.

Jeff: You should do that, and if a position opens up where I work, I’ll let you know.

Lily: Cool. Thank you very much.
