Employment
    #4700982 - 09/23/05 04:29 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I am at a point in my life that I need to make plans for a career.

I have managed to get by mainly by doing computer repair/service stuff for years. I have grown to loathe computers and I do not want to work with them anymore. So, I need to pursue some other line of work.

I continually have people tell me, "Do something that you love and that you have an interest in". None of the things that I have an interest in are marketable skills. Nobody cares that I read a certain author or that I like to goof around on my guitar (and certainly nobody will pay me to do these things). People only care about what good or a service you can offer them.

Since there is nothing that I love that I can get a job at, my next best option is to pursue a career that I can tolerate. I want to "work to live" and not "live to work". I don't want a job that is very demanding (mentally or physically). I want it to be engaging enough that I don't die of boredom, but I don't want it to be so challenging that I have to devote a significant portion of my being to it. Basically, I want to earn decent money and I don't want to bust my ass. And when my shift is done I want to leave work and not think about it.

Does anybody else feel the same way? Am I lazy because I don't view work as something to devote one's life to?

Her boobs are a little to big, but i'd still give it to her.

She has this look in her eyes like she wants it, bad.

i'm in the same boat!  i do network admin & i've just about had it.  goddam computers, suck the living shit outta you.  i heard the guy at the airport who takes your baggages at the curb makes more than $100K a year in tips.  naturally, it's almost impossible to score that kind of job, no matter how many ph.d.'s you sport on your resume :smile:

if you figure it out, please let me know, i could use some inspiration.
