I ****ing hate school. With a passion. I'm constantly thinking of what it would be like to just have a job.
When I had my summer job I worked for my uncle. It varied from mowing yards, bush hogging pastures, to laying brick and cutting trees. There were days I hated it but for the most part I loved it. I was doing what I loved, out in the country.
I wish I had an actual job...
Any entrepreneur's here? Me and a couple buddies are trying to open a t-shirt business then expand to more clothing/accessories. I may just start another thread on this...
Dude stay in school. I never finished my degree and I regret it. Now Im going to go back to school at night/ online after work and my kids go to sleep.
I'm an RN on a Tele/Oncology floor. We can go from having great amazing patients, to oh what the hell do I have to give them to sleep through the night. I love what I do, but am moving to ICU here shortly hopefully.
I'm an ICU RN working weekend option nights, studying to be a nurse practitioner. I work every Fri, Sat Sun night and only get 4 weekends off a year.
During the week I work PRN at a maximum security prison providing free medical care to killers and rapists.

I have been a mechanic almost my life. I had to retire from turning wrenches due to health issues a few years ago. Now I am an apartment maintenance man for a retirement complex. while I loved the work of wrenching I did work for a few places I hated. my current job I mostly like. It has its days too.
I work for Papa Johns. I deliver pizza's outta the XJ. I go through about 1/2 tank on a good night. :/
I love to drive and I love my Jeep... but this ain't the vehicle to do it in.
I make 30-40 on a good night, most of that goes to gas.
My other job is as an Intern Mechanic at a local shop here in town. I went to Nashville Auto Diesel but F'd around and didn't learn what I needed to. So, I'm back learning it again. I love what I do, and can fix anything that goes wrong on the jeep for just parts cost. And then I'll know how to do it in the future. :]
I'm a factory worker I bounce around from job to job (when somebody is out sick) get paid no better than the lady that vaccines out the boxes and stands in one place all night. But I build coffins not a typical job but it pays the bills

Every job no matter how exciting in the beginning starts to suck after a few years. I'm been retired since 2005 and so far have not seen any downside of sleeping in and not answering to anyone but myself.
I'm glad you all have jobs. I was fortunate to have never been unemployed in my lifetime.
i am a lifeguard at a high end country club. its a sweet gig, free food when i want it, 40 min on 40 min off, $20 per half hour swim lesson. it also can suck when you have to screw with the pumps or chems. i am also the head guard so i make the schedule every week, deal with complainants, ect. plus since i can fix anything(my jeep is a rolling tool box) i have to fix the pumps all the time. i love it though.
at school i work in the sports center in the back as a field manger on Sundays from noon to 4, so i sit around and watch football.
i also have an internship that pay me very well for the data analysis i do for the company.

I work on the management team of a mortgage servicing call center. I love my job...okay...my job kind of sucks, but it's the first place I've worked, i my life, that the leadership generally knows more then me. That's a comfort. I've also learned a lot about mortgages and that has helped me and family members in more ways then one.
i work at a gas station. im basically the assistant manager. i deal with crap from customers all the time but overall its ok. the thing that gets to me is that i work for a multi million dollar corporation and they start ppl out at .25 above min wage then after a year give you a $0.16 raise and make a big deal about it like they are going to go broke. i skipped a few steps so i get paid ok after only a year but not nearly enough for what i do..... i go above and beyond at my job and i get paid the same as others in my position at other stores who dont do anything but yea its an ok job. just gotta keep it up for a few more months till i graduate
Retail jobs will suck the life force out of a zombie.
My job sucks too. I work part-time for a party rental store. I deliver chairs, tables, tents, and the like, and keep up the warehouses and rental equipment, and maintenance on the delivery trucks. I make a pretty decent hourly rate for what the job is, but believe me, i have earned it. we run a small crew of about 2-4 guys depending on the need. for some reason, only morons are attracted to this place and i get stuck with some real lazy SOBs, so i end up doing most of the work anyways.
i think maybe the worst part, to me, is delivering and setting up all this crap for these super rich folks, and getting treated like garbage the whole time. i was asked to leave a customers house once by the butler bc my work shirt had a small hole it and a bleach stain.
Im 23, working on my bachelors degree in biology since my AS in comp. aided drafting/design didn't aid in finding a career. oh well. I like to work, and am grateful to have a job, but some decent coworkers would be nice. hopefully only a couple more years of this junk.
anyways, to all:
be grateful for your job, and take advantage of any opportunities for learning skills at your job(s). Work hard and be safe.
That's pretty easy to do now a days. College degrees are worth nothing now a days. Articles all the time on the news and in papers about this. Fricken Waste Management garbage collectors make more than some BS or BA degree people. The golden years are long gone.
Oh and I love my job. Fortune 100 company and work from home if I am not travelling. Love it!
