9 Memoirs of women and their work

In honor of those graduating schools and joining the workforce this month, here are some awesome memoirs of women working and doing jobs that are unusual but satisfying for the women who do them. And probably the men that do them too. Except the nuns, still no male nuns.

Anyway, the point is that life sometimes takes us in directions we don’t expect. Sometimes they’re good and sometimes they’re bad. Sometimes what you went to school for has nothing at all to do with what you end up doing in life. None of that really matters so long as what you do brings some sort of joy. Joy, not happiness. Even the best jobs have crappy times.

Good luck out there and keep a look out for whatever good things come your way.
