Seriously though, the way I've arranged my money-acquisition gives me many many months every year where I don't work at all. As Pos's little fact shows, being in this state can have a profound effect on the human mind. I suggest you all give doing "nothing" a try some time. It's weird, and if you can't manage it, it can be very unhealthy. Strange eh? Just hanging out with ample resources with which to feed, clothe and shelter yourself and what do you become? Volatile, unsatisfied. Busy yourself, and boom,

Although I see your point, and can fully grasp it, I must say in my opinion there is fault there.

Throughout history, mankind has always had to work. Working is the only way to achievement, and without some form of work - a man cannot sustain himself unless he has others doing work for him (slavery, or otherwise).


I ask you, do you not have to cook your own food, or dress yourself, or do daily tasks? This in itself is work.


I also dislike the 8 hour work days, especially since my physical condition is rather ill right now.



I believe there are a few keys to working, in which work no longer becomes "UGH, WORK" but rather a pleasant duty that needs to be done.

For one, I don't believe in working subordinate to anyone. Although I currently do, it is a goal of mine to get passed this. I believe whole heartedly in either learning a trade that you can do yourself, or working in cooperation with others.

Secondly, I believe the work you do should be honest, always. Working for greedy corporations, or fast food enterprises, or places of dishonest trades can only bring negativity into one's life, or atleast only into my life anyway.

To work a trade that you respect, and others respect - and that takes a certain know how should calm your mind , and make you feel less disinterested in your job.



Some other factors to keep in mind are a job that isn't too strenuous, yet challenges you, physically, mentally, or both. Creativity is a wonderful form of expression that you can utilize in your job.


Let me know what you think.

I'm damn near broke and I'm not enough of a risk-taker to sell drugs, so I'm not too happy with being unemployed right now.

Oh I agree, working's good, I love it. I basically feel the same way you do about working for other people and all that. I'm not saying the whole WAKE UP thing with seriousness. However, there is a plague. It's called the "unhappily employed" virus. Some symptoms include working at a job you don't like, but more commonly, and more dangerously, people infected end up working because they can't stand being unemployed. I know a guy who works seasonally like me, and instead of taking advantage of his eligibility for employment insurance when winter hits and he's layed off, he gets a job that pays a little more, just 'cause he can't stand not working.

Nasty. Facing the void of having every option completely open to me ever since high school ended has been interesting. Years of hanging around, sometimes pacing back and forth, trying to get other stuff going.. I probably wouldn't feel that life is meaningless if I didn't choose this lifestyle. Not that I think life being meaningless (whatever I mean by that) is a bad thing or I'm depressed.. It's just that unemployment has altered the way I see the world.

I love my job. I would work for free if someone would support me. I am a bad businessman. But if I could just be a bad businessman, and if someone would let me pursue my job as a hobby, I would be fine.

I have to learn to be a better businessman.

Honestly, I would have gone to university twice, but the whole application process was too confusing to me. The second time I resolved to apply I didn't know my student number and I was like "meh"

This is what my lifestyle has done to me.

Oh, also, the thing about university is that people who go to university are.. I don't know .. intellectually empowered mindless twats? Yeah.. something like that. I suggest rising above the robotic habits thrust upon you by the big machine.
