What is something you do that makes you genuinely happy?

I want to know what makes you happy. An activity or something of that sort. Something you always look forward to and that you could see yourself doing all the time. If this thing is NOT your job, then I am curious to find out your reasoning of why it is not. I'll read and respond to all answers. I'm a 18 year old kid about to go into college and responding would really help me out. Thanks.

  • May 5 2013: My career was in negotiation and purchasing, and was highly rewarding. Researching new and competitive products to create a level and fair playing field gave me the knowledge to negotiate pricing and terms for products and services needed Most of my career was in the health care arena, acquiring items directly for patients to use in the home My last job was in the corporate procurement dept of a large retail chain, and my focus was mainly on technology--computers, servers, cash registers, etc. Always something new to learn!
