Teaching requires that you be treated like sub atomic particles tbh

Looking forward to this thread. Been finding work really shit and boring these past few weeks. No motivation. How the fuck is this maybe my life for the next 30 years?


Have spells now and then of literally having no work to do which is amazing but they’re not as common as they used to be.

Until recently had absolutely no qualms about coming into work but they’ve temporarily made my job really shit

Better place to vent than my nice safe calm banal thread was at least :wink:

Passes the time,I suppose.

It’s absolutely fine for me, literally no critiscisms in terms of people or environment. Not stressful, good location, decent pay, good career path.

But I just. Do. No. Care. And I’m finding that hard to deal with, really tempted to go in a wildly different direction but having already got used to this money I’m not sure how easily I would drop back down to unstable wages

I have a diff job every month basically so it’s a massive load of ‘depends’ but current job is needlessly stressful and for a literally awful show that nobody cares about and actively makes me dread coming in.

I work as wyclef and the rock’s backing vocalist


Which system just invented more useless jobs arbitrarily

Teaching is probably the most rewarding thing I’ve done, but it’s too hellish to do long term.
