How do you all cope with having to work?
    #11204559 - 10/08/09 01:11 AM (8 years, 1 month ago)

I have yet to find a job that doesn't piss me off with a bunch of extra bullshit tagged onto the regular day; they fucking take over your life. For some reason I have the impression that a lot of you just live in tents or caves or something near wi-fi spots. Do you? Actually one guy from my school did that, he moved into a cave for like a year.

Hey man you wanna move into a cave?
Just jokes, but seriously, check this out.
1) Are you going to college?
If not, look forward to working these type of jobs for the rest of your life. Unless of course you decide to do the cave thing.
2) If you're going to college, youre already on the right path. A few years down the road youll have a degree. Sure, that counts for little as far as your person- but in the society we live in, it's what has to be done if you want to make a decent amount of money. Ideally down the road you'll find a job that interests you and challenges you in a good way, instead of feeling like you're dirt.(<<thats how my current job is, too)


--------------------

I want to show you life for what it's worth, from beginning to end from when your life was first launched 'till when it descends back to earth. From pyramiding at it's peak 'till when it turns back into dirt..

Ive loved almost every job I have had.  I think having the right perspective and attitude is more useful than finding a the right job.

I have a degree. A good degree! :crankey:

I just haven't found any good jobs for the couple years I've been out. Mostly in terms of work-life balance.

thats true as well, It's all in how you look at it.

If people treat you like you're their bitch at your job, and you focus on that, the job will seem bad overall.

If the above happens, but you also get free items from the place, not to mention lots of cig breaks, and you take it into consideration, maybe the job isn't so bad.

I graduated with a bs in chemistry a few years ago. I work at a bar making LOTS of money. A buddy I went to school with is still without a job. Last I talked to him a few months ago he got a temp job selling cars or some shit...

We both feel like dirt because of all the money/time we wasted in school.

its always 70/30 or vice versa

I'm in my final year of college, two more semesters to go and I feel like quitting. I hate my major and don't really want to pursue a job in it after college anyways, so what the fuck to do? Fuck jobs, and fuck having to pay loans once your out of school.

why not find a peaceful and relaxing job for now... a science center, flower shop, etc

i had a kayaking tour guide over the summer down in GA that had a degree but started doing the tours and said he would never leave it to do something else because " he is greatful for where he lives and what he does every day of his life even if the money isnt as good"

I'm a junior and I'm almost 23. I was supposed to be teaching High School history by now, but I got fucked by the community college system and Social Studies Teacher Licensure Requirements (you're not a history teacher in my state, you're a social studies teacher.. which means a dozen or so bullshit classes that have nothing to do with history).

Honestly, I just want to drop out right now and get a second job so I can stop living in someone's living room.

I heard that, I'm seriously contemplating it. I'm 21 and living in this shitty dorm on campus, If anyone claustrophobic was in here they would freak the fuck out. Its that small.

Its all about commision based pay...the harder you work, the more you make. Fuck hourly or salary work. Why would you even work hard? To get a raise? Then what? A promotion? Then what? Your never gonna own the company, and your always going to be micro-managed....I say fuck that, pay me for what I bring to the table. Not for just sitting at it!

working is a means to an end.

"working for the weekend" type lifestyle is something i cannot understand. I work, make the best of it, save some money and travel/survive/eat good and look forward to the future.

I went to school for a trade and should be working in my chosen field in the next couple months.

Im all about working as much as possible for relatively short periods of time and then extensive time off to go traveling. (in theory.. usually i just quit my job and work as little as possible, but these days i am responsible.)
