I don't even have a real job (internship) and I'm already not satisfied. I feel like something is missing and everyday I just look forward to going home although my workplace is really great. Sometimes it makes me think if I am just being ungrateful for not being able to be like everybody doing a 9-5 job. :/

Oh no, I'm sorry. Are you interning in a career you enjoy? In my case, I fell into two jobs that I had no interest in pursuing, so I'm sure that played a factor in how much I despised them. If you are, don't blame yourself! I think you'd be surprised to find out how many people begrudgingly go to work every day.

Yeah, I enjoy it. That's why I feel like such an ungrateful person :| Nature and animals is what makes me truly happy.

Unfortunately, sometimes not even passion can trump the duties you don't like doing every day. :(
