    I chose other. I think that if I could find a job in my field and actually get it (psh, yeah right) I would still want to work, regardless of my money tree!

    Otherwise, I’d probably choose to not work but try to spend some time volunteering or something to at least be productive. I’m unemployed at the moment, which was fun for a bit, but I can be pretty lazy when left to my own devices. I’d need something to get my going out of the house.

    I’d definitely still work. I would go crazy otherwise!

    Hell no! I’d just spend all my time doing doing crafts, projects, baking, learning to cook more so, shopping, working out, volunteer etc. All of those things I make excuses for not doing because of work!

    I would work, but not at my current job. And I wouldn’t keep a 9-5. I am so sick of horrible commutes, wasting gas, time, and energy that could be used for so much else! But I think I would become very bored, very quickly if I didn’t work. 

    I actually worked in pizza shops from about 16-22 and I loved making pizzas. Sounds cheesy, but I’d probably find a part time job doing that!

    I wouldn’t work, but I’d volunteer a lot. I love to volunteer but just don’t have a lot of time now — because of work!

    I enjoy what I do but if I was rich and didn’t have to work, I’d quit today.

    I’d much rather spend my time travelling, volunteering and enjoying my hobbies than putting in 40 hours a week at a job.

    I voted yes, I’d want to work.  Why did I vote this?  Because I am currently not working, we are living decently middle class, and I’m soooo bored!  It honestly makes me feel worthless to be sitting at home most of the time.

    I don’t have to work, and I choose not to.

    I do not get as much satisfaction from working as I do cleaning my house or cooking dinner.  In fact I hate working.  Every day I would rather not be here.  And I like my job – really – I like the people, and the work.  I’d just rather… not.

    I would not work.  I’d volunteer, learn to be a really good cook, decorate the shit out of our house, but not work.

    I am a painter.  I can’t not paint.  It is a lot like being a runner, if you are a runner you know you HAVE to run – painting is like this for me.  I also need a challenge, so I will always be working toward getting MORE (better work, better shows).  But no, I do not have a traditional job and maybe I never will.

    I would still work but it would likely be part time voluntary work somewhere that I find interesting and fun.  I used to volunteer at the local zoo and I would love to do that again!

    I would not work! I would spend my days volunteering (probably in a school setting), being a full – time mom (well, all moms are full-time!), and going to the beach and going hiking as often as possible!

    Oh what a dream!

    I would work or volunteer full-time. No way that I can be a SAHM/W.
