Oh, it's all obscene and ridiculous. Whatever way you look at it, people who are doing a genuine service to society are getting poorly paid and working hellish hours, while pricks in Wall Street offices catering for the greed of a narrow few investors and shareholders are earning shitloads. Fuck 'em.

Its winter right now there? I never have a camera on me, unless you count my phone. In that case I always have a camera on me.

Ugh I cant talk about this anymore I too tired. lol.

This is why I am not a nurse right now. I can make twice what they would chained to a desk by a headset taking calls from idiots, certain at nearly 20 points during my shift I am perfectly capable of killing myself or a fellow human being. It's killing my soul, if it hasn't already. If only the pay and benefits weren't so good...

Nope, only had 17 last thread. Maybe I can beat that record today, assuming the thread's still around when I can post from work.

Ooh, what band are you seeing? I'm feeling rather concert-deprived right now.

And I'll try to sleep before 3am.

Of course it's winter; it's the Southern Hemisphere, remember! Where the seasons are around the right way and midyear is also midwinter.

I always have my digital camera in my pocket, and spare batteries. Couldn't live without it now. Especially not in Melbourne, with all the trains and trams around ... what's a railfan to do but take photos!

Oh right... But that means that Christmas isnt in wither!

Taking photos of trains all day? My friends carry around cameras everywhere they go to but mostly just to take pics of themselves and friends. Ugh my friends are so shallow.

You're certainly not the only person I know who's said something like that. I've lost track of the amount of people I've met who would love to either be in the medical or education professions, but can earn much more elsewhere. And what's the solution of the government here to the shortage of teachers and nurses? Not to increase their pay, oh no. Make university courses cheaper and easier to get into! So all the dumb shits who aren't passionate about teaching or nursing but get rejected from everything else end up there, while the capable people who'd be fantastic teachers or nurses do other courses since they're smart enough to qualify and will be able to get a much better paying job ...

I'm seeing a local band I used to see many, many years ago -they're having a reunion gig. There's going to be many ghosts from my past wafting around, I'm gonna need a drink, or three....

OK I really do need to go now, nighty night folks

(3 am, my arse.....)

Postwhore it up.

Incidentally, just checking the stats spreadsheet, and it looks like you're just about on track to pass 200 Superthread posts. For comparison, we have 22 people past 1,000 posts! Wow. This place has been insane indeed.

Make sure you come back and drunkpost.

I haven't gotten to sleep earlier than 3am in weeks. Even when I try to go to bed earlier, I seem to lie awake until 3am. Bleh.

G'night!

Nice rant!

Here's the thing: My dream job actually isn't nursing, though that's what I was headed into, it's teaching. I would love to be a high school teacher. Specifically science! *points to custom rank* I love it, you never run out of things to learn about it, and when you get to the chemistry unit, you can blow shit up And I'm sure I've babbled enough over these threads of how much I love astronomy
