THANKYOU

pity party for one?

Recommended Posts

i hope that some of you older heads on the board chime in...

 

so, im 26 years old, ive come to a point in my life where i pretty much hate my fucking job to death, never finished up college because i didnt really know what i wanted to do, still dont...

 

however, i do know that im tired of not doing something i love. I'm also tired about not doing anything about it. which is somewhat due to the fact that i know if i just up and left my job, thats a big risk to take when you have bills, and some debt etc...

 

but i just dont want to be one of those people that get old, work a job they hate their whole life, and then regret not ever doing anything about it....

 

so have any of you jumped ship from your current job to make a whole other career change? how'd it pan out? did you wind up regretting it? etc etc...?

 

any other advice?

that's pretty much everyone's life, and most people

can't make a decent living doing what they love.

 

life as an adult is paying bills, working, and obtaining debt.

 

if you don't have kids, i'd suggest quitting your job and

trying what you do enjoy.

you have the ability to move and travel and pretty much

try anything still.

stay at that job while working towards a career in something you enjoy doing.

 

personally i never have had a job i truly want to be at "forever" so i usually try to fill up my free time with learning trades that interest me that may pay off in the future.

I don't work a regular job because it's not something I can get behind.

I never cared enough about making money for it to be a deciding factor in what I do with my time.

I take care of my family and stay poor.

I would rather spend my life helping raise my niece and being steady broke versus spend my life working some bullshit job and never having time to do the things that make me the happiest.

 

Quit your job.

if you don't have a backup plan and a definite possibility of another job lined up, then quitting is NOT a good idea.

 

aren't you into buying big tvs and all that flashy shit?

not to be a bitch, but i'm sure you know that you can't do that unemployed..

 

suck it up, start looking for other opportunities, get some interviews down, then quit.

 

Trust me. I've quit some jobs and then said to myself "FUCK!! Dumb bitch."

ask other people who work in a field you interested in how they like their job. i wouldn't just quit my job without having something else in line. i guess you could take a few vacation days to go around and check out other jobs. usually some time off can help you clear your head and do a lil soul searching. good luck

i'm thinking about moving to samoa, getting some family land, and just picking fruit and fishing instead of being an employee.

 

capitalism is for suckers.

i would move to samoa but from what ive seen, somoan women look like somoan men and neither are very attractive. i dont think i could handle a wildebeast elephant hybrid in bed.

I've quit or got fired from a lot of jobs that I wasn't feeling

& before I knew it, my qualifications were focused on the exact same kind of work

so basically, it can be an endless cycle of being discouraged about your time / life

 

My suggestion is to try & find something different for now

change seems to distract from the uneasiness

 

Chances are, the grass will always be greener

T;6069679']Depends you still living with Moms right?

 

nope, not for the last like 3 years.

 

ive been doing fine, handling my bills, apt, etc...

 

but i wish i could move back in with moms, get outta debt, sell my expensive ass car, and just start all over.

 

im about ready to have my car repo'd, quit my job, go bankrupt, and just start the fuck over.

I quit working a steady job for a few years and lived purely off of freelance art. It was tough but refreshing.

 

Sadly enough, I am back in the work force part-time while still devoting a majority of my time to gallery shows and public art projects.

 

I'm in your boat too...never even started college here.

 

Here's the cliche part. ...ready?

 

Follow your heart. NH

 

I see too many people every day (including my girl) who are stuck where they're at FOREVER.

 

Do what you have to do to get out of that rut...school, find art connects, etc.

 

You're still young enough.

 

Don't be saying this same sad story again, except starting with:

 

"Well, I'm 40 now and not much has changed..."

I think everyone reaches a point in their life where they're absolutely fed up with their personal state of affairs.

 

if anything, I think its healthy. if you constantly sit around content with your life, you'll never aspire to anything more than just being content.

Im the living example of settling for a field of work that you have no real interest in other than money. But its what you make of the line of business your in and have goals to do what you like after you have reached financial stability. You have to take what you do serious and plan to retire fast if your in sales the sky is the limit. If your a paycheck guy then it might be a bit harder. I made my last transition at 27 and never looked back. My plans are to retire by the time im 35 which means i got 3 years this market really fucked those plans up so it might be delayed a couple of years.

 

By retired i mean not having to work for your money having your money work for you and managing it to make a decent living. This is when i will be able to tackle my passions again and probably start another business out of those passions.

 

A wise business man told me once, there are many directions and choices just pick one and dont look back, it might be the right one it might not be but the idea is to always go forward.

 

I think that was it long time ago.

poesia, do you care to get into detail about what it is that you actually do? possibly through pm

 

I've always wondered too. You've eluded to it a few times...spill it.
