People are often shocked when I tell them what I do for a living.
I am a groundskeeper at a local cemetery.
It’s approximately 40 acres of land that has to be kept up consistently; Both of us have to make sure the hedges are trimmed, the grass is mowed, plus the place is kept up nice plus tidy. I have to admit, it can be strenuous especially in the peak heating plus cooling seasons, but the people I was with and I are able to manage; On top of keeping up with everything, I have to coordinate burial services, assign plots, facilitate tours, plus dig graves. This is undoubtedly challenging labor indeed, but it is fulfilling work. It has really taught me a lot about perspective. I have found that no matter what kind of stress I am under, the stress of having enjoyed a singles die is by far the worst thing, then no matter how I am feeling, I can see these people are consistently grieving to greater extremes than whatever I happen to be dealing with. This has helped me get by over the years as I realize that I have a pretty good life for the most part. I have a roof over our head, food on the table, plus our family is doing alright. I have considered changing to other jobs, although I really love this type of work. If I did go for another career choice though, I assume I would entirely try to get into the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C industry! After the long afternoons of working in the daylight plus in the freezing weather, I assume I would care about to help labor on weather conditions control systems.
