    Default Why does your job suck?

    Vent here.



    Mine sucks because I never really "clock out."
    And it is my agenda versus the agendas of twenty five ninth graders.
    And I am not very good at managing behavior without becoming negative.

    - I'm "on call".
    - Corporate buzz-words
    - Timetables, with revisable bottom lines
    - Time commitments are often vague and unevenly applied

    My lack of a job kicks ass.
    "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 was hired to train and coach which I love...but they have me documenting material... I am so BORED with all the introverted detailed work. It is the exact opposite of what I enjoy ....

    People who aren't efficient, spend 20 minutes giving me a long, winding answer that could've been answered in 2, people who waste time, other people's incompetence and laziness in general. We're like cogs in a machine - just one bad one drags me down.

    the work itself and the people are alright. it's the fact that i'm a) the only tech guy in the office which blows when i think about way back when i was in a actual tech company and how much fun that was. being my natural introverted self doesn't help much and that combined w/ me having zero irl contact w/ others like me is no fun. and b) the work i do is fairly meaningless. granted most stuff i could be doing would be meaningless in 100 years i'd still prefer working on something i'm passionate about and that has meaning, to me at least.
    I'm feeling rough, I'm feeling raw, I'm in the prime of my life.

    12 hour days are typical.

    Looking for a new job every 6-8 months is no way to plan for the future or feel good about splurging in the present.

    It's never really certain that I will have work to do for, say, the next year (although it's always known if I will have in the next 2 months). However, it's okay as long as I am still a student.

    They expect me to work. Bastards.
