@PinkPanda:  Fiance never plans on letting you retire?  Sounds like you’re gonna be his $ugar Momma!

Sorry about your work problems, I love that you said “I’m always good at what I do!” I feel the same way, and normally you’re stuck with the worst co-workers and those office politics.

Honestly, work sucks. That’s why they pay you to be there.

I have a job I like very much (Graphic Designer), probably my best possible career option besides becoming a famous singer or artist, but I still wish I didn’t have to do it.

One day soonish, I will be a stay-at-home parent, although I’ll still work at least part time.

The best advice I can give: Work hard now and invest your money well so that you can retire sooner and have a much comfier life later. That is my plan. Our home is going to be paid off in 2 years.

@PinkPanda:  I know a family of 6 who lives on a pastor’s salary. It can totally be done. They have a nice house, the kids of the same sex share bedrooms (2 to a room – lucky for them they have 2 girls and 2 boys). They rarely buy anything brand new but they always have everything they need.  It’s amazing to me.  I think it is totally possible to live on one salary if you are willing to let go of some wants.

I totally hear ya when it comes to being sick of working!!

@PinkPanda:  Ugh, I know how you feel. I actually FINALLY have great coworkers, but the pay sucks.

So, there’s this joke i’ve heard: “There’s a club for people who hate their jobs! It’s called everyone and they meet at the bar.”

I think perhaps your problem is environmental, not the actual job. Try a different job/setting. I thought I hated science for a while – then I decided to give it one last shot and changed jobs. Made all the difference in the world! A good boss, and healthy dynamics can really make or break so many areas of your life!

I can relate.  I am over it, but bills have to be paid.  Blah to being an adult!  No, I actually don’t mind working.  I’m just really unhappy with my current job.

@PinkPanda:  Thank you!  I am still trying to convince Darling Husband to convince his friend to let me be his secretary/organizer and work from home until his office is up and running.  Sigh.. lol

@PinkPanda:  I could have written this post. I am totally over working, for all the reasons you said and more. 

I strongly belive that if you really can’t stand something, you should get out. Is there any way you can realistically quit? Or is there any other job you could get (like working at a bookstore or babysitting or something) that you could do while you figure out what you want to do next?
