I already work for a great company in a job I largely enjoy; what
scares me is that I haven't even begun to pay off my educational debt,
and my (much lower, by comparison) credit card debt is proving
difficult to make a dent in.  I don't want to go chasing *salary* my
entire life, since I already have enough to make me quite comfortable
(minus the debt, of course).
