    I just can't do it. I can't be

    that well grounded and proper to do a job. I am very forgetful and can't reach hourly deadlines at all. Hope freelancing will fill in that gap, it's low paying, but at least it's something. Hope that it is in line with gods plan for my life, whatever that is. hope and pray.

    That's Why I Work In Care

    I have never enjoyed working the 9-5. Whilst I wish I had more patience to deal members of the public, I am glad that I do not have the patience because my lack lack of patience lead me to a career in care. It takes a lot of patience to work in care, I work in autism and I don't...

    Actually, no one is cut out

    for the sedentary lifestyle that modern life has become. It has many negative health consequences even if you aren't anywhere near being obese. Sometimes, I do some squats just to get my heart rate up a bit and pump that blood around. 3 sets of 12 does a lot.

    Don'T Do It Any More

    I couldn't do it anymore. I got pregnant, left on mat leave, couldn't go back. I just couldn't do it. So now I work from home, it helps, I can contribute financially, and don't have to go back to that life again. I make more now then I ever did before. It's freeing. Not having to...

    I am fine working at home

    9 To 5

    I don't think I have ever had a 9 to 5 job and doubt I could I have worked most of my life on an on call basis or shift work and it is just normal to me. Ok maybe I'm not normal I think that is a setting on the clothes dryer.

    I am made for a 9-to-5 sleeping in my bed.

    I am convinced of this because I find myself yawning all the time while at my 9-to-5 office job.
