    Probably not. But that's a pretty big spread, 8 hours vs 1 hour. 8 hours is pretty light compared to what people have been required to work historically, out of necessity.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I always get fired, when I dont like the job. The last job I applied for and got fired later, I was still drunk from the day before, when I applied, so thats prolly why I didnt notice that it sucked .

    No, I am still very young and I worked as a student now in different jobs to get a glimpse on the possibilities. I worked as a technician in a factory, which grew boring after a while. I worked as an engineer for a consulting company, which was fun, but the job was terminable. Now I work for my hometown for the department that boosts economy in my hometown as a consultant engineer. I get to know a lot of companies there and influencial people + different views on the business world thats a great deal of education. Those consultant jobs really rock, cause you are the only guy that knows the shit and everyone treats you like Jesus himself .

    I wonder what I will do after university is finished. I am thinking about politics (to start off small )

    Yes. People do accept jobs they don't enjoy--not always on purpose.

    I got into a job I loved, and I ended up hating it after a few years. I don't think I am the type of person who can stay in one profession for my whole life.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.
