Don't contribute to the stagnation of our society by all those damned families with a 9 to 5, 2 point 4 children and a minivan. Do something exciting.
I think you just listed one of the greatest quotes ever! nice!!
I do agree though. This stuff gets to oneself after a while. Unfortunately the comfort is the only thing keeping me around. The fact that I don't hate the job, and really have no reason to hate it other then the drearyness of it.
You guys sound like you are all pretty young. I am 24 and definately am not ready to call this crap my career choice. My sanity couldn't handle it :D
I actually have no problem working 50-60 hours a week when I enjoy what I am doing. It just becomes a hobby, which is one of the greatest jobs you can ever have. Getting paid for a hobby! (and a career too; just doesn't feel like it)!!
I did webdesign for Nationwide Children's Hospital using Cold Fusion (intranet applications). That was actually kind of interesting as no two applications were even remotely the same (save the user accounts / login etc). I actually regret leaving that job as I had a blast there; but I was just an intern and there were no openings coming up anytime soon... and those good old student loans were coming up on me fast.
Its kind of interesting. I feel so much like the chap in office space. lol. I do the absolute minimum required to keep everyone off my back and not get me fired; and its like no one even notices that I am not doing anything. I think I would hate it even more if they were more strict though; because then I would be forced to do work that I dont want to do LOL.
I know this isn't laziness... well, it could be a form of it. However, I have never been this unmotivated in my life. Especially at something that is suppose to be my 'career'.
There are No Stupid Questions. But there a LOT of Inquisitive Idiots.
