A day in your life as an interaction design professional?

Hi everyone, I'm contemplating a career move from engineering to interaction design, but I don't have a clear idea of what an interaction designer actually does day-to-day. I've read a bit on what interaction design is all about (e.g., http://www.uxbooth.com/blog/complete-beginners-guide-to-interaction-design/) and I also have taken classes in interaction design and usability testing, but I was wondering if you professional designers out there could tell me what your job entails - how is your day/week structured? What kind of activities do you perform? Is there variety of projects in your work? How much time do you get to work on a project? Do you work on a team or individually? What do you love (or hate) about working in the field? Or anything else that would help me discern my 'path' :)
