Working is a waste of youth

I know a lot of you love your work, and I am so jealous! I just think it's a huge waste of youth. We should be out there enjoying life and seeing the world while we are young and healthy and not spending more than half our time on this earth stuck doing stuff we don't want to do!!!!

I don't know what it is lately, but I am really bitter about working (can you tell?). I can barely drag myself out of bed in the mornings. Motivation = 0.

I know I am lucky to have a job. I know I am in a noble field. But I'm sick of wishing I were somewhere else. But I am totally stuck and can't afford to start over, and even if I did, whose to say it would be any better?

Well now. I'm 17 and in high school -- and half the girls I know have jobs. And I'm like WTF are you people DOING.

This is probably a bit different than the age group to which you refer, Mrs. Edge, but

1. I barely have enough time to finish my homework. How do these people work?

2. When I DO finish what I have to do, I like to relax. SCHOOL is my job. I do that for hours on end....and then I deserve a break.

3. The girls I know that DO have jobs-- they all chose it. I mean these are rich kids. So it's not like they're doing it to help pay the rent or anything. They all want cars. Which they all already have...but I'm not bitter. Well, I am. But that's for another day.

4. The girls that work-- they complain about it. Why do something if you don't want to? I mean, I do heavy duty babysitting in the summer and make $$$$$. But that's far different from working a low-paying crap job that you hate during the school year when there's other things to do.

I know it's different for older ppl....but still. I've never had a real job. I don't feel like I've missed out on anything.

You haven't Mona! Enjoy it while you can!!

Maddie, I know just how you feel. This commiseration definitely helps.

I can relate. And I don't have the answers, either. But life's pretty cool, anyway.

Maddie: I sure as hell ain't booin'. I think you have ENORMOUS potential for whatever you do because you have a creative gift. Keep your chin up, sister.

My school requires seniors to do this 3week internship thing. I HAVE NO FECKIN CLUE WHERE TO WORK.

One of my teachers was like "well what do you like to do?"

MONA: Em.....I don't know.

TEACHER: What do you want to do....career wise?

MONA: I either want to be YOU or Bruce Springsteen.

TEACHER: So...you want to teach?

MONA: No....just be you.

TEACHER: Oh....who's Bruce-- what?

Oh Pub, its very difficult, not easy when there are no exit doors to ur front, sides or rear...............

I used to look and go, 'Damn, shed suit.....blah blah' - its all in the head wanting out Pubbie....

take Angelina Jolie for instance..........I would say she would DEF suit long tailoured black trousers..black boots (slightly fine at the front)...and a red top with one full sleeve.....or even the outfit Cameron wore at the nightclub with 'Pete' in Chalies Angels, - her hair down, and dark and pinned back by two clips, her eyes glowing and with little make-up on - but of course, yes thats silly, and you would have to wait 2 days plus have a mud wrestle with Angie before she'd wear anyting not black or not gothic, but hey, Im game to challenge that girl!!!!!!!!!

Y'all will think I'm so weird, but right now is the first time in about seven years that I haven't had a job (I'm at uni) and I hate it! I'm so bored although I tend to get bored within thirty seconds of having nothing to do. And I have no money! I need a job! And some money! And relief from boredom!

I totally agree! That's probably why I didn't get a job until I was 17...most people my age have worked 2 years by then...

Such a nice day
Let it go...

<--- still hasn't found what she's looking for...

Maddie, howsabout you and me goin into the "dressing people" bidness together??? I'll move my arse over there...

Okay, I USED to hate my job...then I got laid off. Now I have a job I love, BUT...it's still not REALLY what I love to do (which is....well, it definitely ain't hardware! Not sure what 'zactly).

But the only problem with work ruining our *coughnotme* young lives, is that everything COSTS MONEY. And THAT'S the part that sucks. I'd love to travel around the world, and do *anything* other than work, but how do you do that???

So anyone who isn't working yet, and you have parents who can foot the bill...DON'T RUSH, because once you get there, that's it!
