Brad When i work, I play. I love my job, i work in a different place almost every night, except once a week when i go back to the same old place. I have to haul all my tools of the trade around with me. My job requires me to memorize a lot of things, and also to compute information from complex symbols written on paper... all at any given moment on the spot. It requires me to be compatible with others... be interactive with my eyes and especially my ears. I am required to work outside my job for no pay for about 5-9 hours a day sometimes (well, sometimes that includes the time when i am at work, which is usually only a couple of hours a day). I don't make very much money, and i have to do all of my taxes myself. I get no benefits. Many people who work in my profession, even those still known as the best of the best, died poor and even homeless. To live the life doing what i do is a hard one, but oh so fulfilling and worth it. I am underappreciated, underrated, and people who haven't half the dedication, know-how, skill, or taste too often claim my title, and almost always get more acclaim and credit when they fall short of what me and my colleagues are capable of. It's a wonder people like me still exist. Who am I? Answer: a jazz musician 000309

The Schleiffen Man When i work, I play. I love my job, i work in the same place almost every day, except once a week when i go to some new place. I have to haul all my tools of the trade around with me. My job requires me to memorize a lot of things, and also to find pertinent information... all at any given moment on the spot. It requires me to be compatible with others... be interactive with my eyes and especially my ears. I am required to work outside my job for no pay for about 5-9 hours a day sometimes (well, sometimes that includes the time when i am at work, which is usually only a couple of hours a day). I don't make very much money yet, and i have to do all of my taxes myself. I get no benefits. Many people who work in my profession, even those still known as the best of the best, aren't recognized by the general public. To live the life doing what i do is a hard one, but oh so fulfilling and worth it.

tourist Schlieffen my man , You underestamate the power you may someday weild. the world is becoming so dependent on your ilk that with a little organization and solidarity The"Techies" like yourself could demand any salary they desire.When every business is an E business, and yet no one Knows how the Machinery works how dare they deny you.
This is unfortunatly not the same for the talents of Brad and his peers, but if the techs shake hard enough then perhaps Brad can play the soundtrack for the End Of The World.

DannyH I am a very boring man with a very interesting job. I am the worlds most sober and controlled alcaholic. I live in a constant state of battle with my will. I drink a bottle of whiskey every day and go about my business without the slightest flicker of emotion. Its not a lot of fun but its my job so there you are. I make no apologies if I am sometimes clumsy, arrogant or loud. These are failings I grant you but in my line of work you donít make excuses or apologies, you simply try to put the situation right, learn from it and move on. If I punch someoneís lights out because I think theyíve been looking at me funny, its an anger management issue. In such a situation I would usually organise a debriefing session, often held in a hospital ward or prison cell to really try and get to the root of the problem. I would then prepare a report and copy it to senior management. The senior management meeting might take place in my flat or on a park bench in town. Here I would formulate a long term plan with clear objectives and goals. In this case they might be - CONTROL ANGER or TRY AND REMEMBER NOT TO HIT PEOPLE although they are often more sophisticated and complex. Its not a particularly rewarding job and nobody appreciates what I do but I carry on regardless. A job well done is its own reward I feel. 010423

futility Sometimes I think that work is the reason that I am who I am.
It gives my life meaning.
Sometimes I think that work is the thing that makes me insane.
It gives me headaches.
It is the most worthwhile thing I have ever done with myself, and the most difficult.
I wonder what I have gotten myself into?

is giving your two week notice

i feel
terrific
for the first time in a year
work drags us down
down to the level of supervisors,
hierarchies, water-cooler gossip
and the inevitable self-loathing.

i quit
i give up
i've come undone
and it feels good.

Polt Hmm... interesting.

The only work people around here seem to do is that which they get paid for. Work sucks when you get paid for it, they say. I think not, though. Work can be fun. Anything can be fun, if you can smile through anything. Work that you don't get paid for, you'd think would be worse. On the contrary, it is millions of times better. It has shaped me into a better person. It has helped me grow. And most of all, it has helped me bench press 250 lbs.

in order to achieve a goal.

Birth is work.

Creating art is work.

Exercising, typing, writing
is work.

Making a paper snowflake is work.

flies i'm a student, so "work" to me means homework. I never associated with my work growing up. It was always what i was told to do, what other people wanted from me. Now that i'm in college, i want to work, and i know i can do well, very well, but I have the feeling that I could and should be doing better.

I don't feel like my work is a part of me. I know that i'm the one who wants me to work, but i just can't see it through to really motivate myself to do it. I mean, my average is above 3.0, but it's just not fucking good enough. I can do better.

Phil If you take the weekday. Sleep and work add up to be 16 hours a day.

That leaves you 8 hours.
If you have a 15 minute drive to work and a half hour lunch, there goes another hour. Leaving you with 7 hours.

Brushing teeth, shaving, showering, changing clothes, doing laundry, eating breakfast, a healthy dinner, shopping, maintaining a vehicle, exercising, dish, trash, vacuum, bills.

Daily and weekly activities, each necessary to function, and between each of these small activities, a smaller movement from one activity to the next. Nothing can be left out, nothing does itself, and time does not vanish. Some of these activities take 30 mintues, some 10 mintues, some over an hour. They must take at least 2 hours everyday.

And let's face it, we all need time for reflection, we are not robots. While you think about what you are planning to do, or doing it, you might slow down a little bit, maybe you have a little headache or something.

Anyway, on a great day, with no problems; you are hitting all your cylinders, you have 5 hours left to do something for yourself in your day.

Sleep creates no memory, work is what you do for the longest period of time each week. Even if you spent all 5 hours making macaroni monsters.

If you watch a few hours of TV and wonder why you can't get anything done. Bingo.

TV isn't your life, its someone else's fake life. Someone who has an 8 hour job is making fake lives every week. Just like you have a job serving food, cleaning cars, or whatever.

If you have to pick up the kids, forget about it. Every day is decided for you.

This figuring leaves a healthy weekend. You probably take a nap on the weekend. Because 8 hours of sleep really isn't enough. I don't know about you, but my weekend only begins after some unwinding.

Really, what is there to do on the weekend to make up for 5 days of relentless work? More pursuits? Drinking? HA! Forget it. It is just going to make you miserable monday and the rest of the week even more terrible.

Then, every so often, you have somebody screw you over, or something breaks, you get a flu; just every so often a whole lot of time is lost on something bad. It is amazing that people waste time being negative, but it happens.

You really need to stay balanced and not forget what a few hours really means, its the difference between "me" time and giving that time up to some asshole. Any moment we waste, is eating into the little bit of time we need for ourselves to benefit even a tiny bit. Don't sit around wasting time, get organized, simplify.

We can't talk about work, without talking about money, and what we spend our money on. How much of it goes right back into work? For example. How much do you like your job, I think you must like your job if you spend a lot of money.

My bills and your bills might be totally different. I don't eat out, I don't got to the movies, I have a $700 car. My clothes are shabby. My meals are bottom dollar, I get the cheap gas (which around here is the expensive stuff possibly where you come from) or I bike, so I essentially live with necessity.

When I retire I plan on moving some place less expensive, no kids, no car, no debt, or hospital bills. I'll just die from whatever bug gets me. Retirement really only depends on how long I think I am going to live, anyway.

I have a shower, food, car, debt,and the internet. So I spend around $700 a month now, and refuse to give up what I consider bare essentials. But again, I don't have a job that pays big. $10 is a good hourly wage for me. Seldom more.

Right now I'm 30, I have no savings, jobs are come and go. I am assuming a lot in thinking that retirement will ever begin. I hope to be so by the age 53.
Oh ya! That's right.

no reason former intern who is back to help out for a couple of days tells boss what she's doing: "just designing an invitation for [blah]."

boss, kind of laughs, and says, "then you can design this, and this, etc.... everything [no reason] is supposed to do!"

he meant it as a joke, mostly, but the kicker is that i CAN'T even do those jobs, and never do, because the company can't afford to pay for me to have design software. so really, she's doing my coworker's work (and does it a lot better than him). but my boss loves my coworker because he's the biggest suck up ever.

guess i have nothing to do but twiddle my thumbs until the intern is done the invites. (sigh.)

Stripped clear
Of designer purses and shoes
My identity is clear
I make a name for myself
To rep the only true One
A pure heart richer
Than a full wallet
The boss above
Doesn't need me
To serve Him Starbucks
A purple robe
Replaces suit and tie
My employer and king
Unlike my peers
I strive to be nothing
So He can be everything
My work isn't a grind
Every task observed
All paychecks signed
With the bonus of salvation
