    I Guess Somethings Never Change

    When I wrote this statement, I was working at a different job...waiting tables as a matter of fact.  Then I got a SECOND job to try to wean myself out of the first one.  Well, that worked. NOW, I don't want to be there.  I think there comes a point when you have to...

    I Don't Want To Work Anymore... It's Worthless

    Don't judge me wrong. I'm not lazy or waiting for handouts. The reasons why I don't want to work anymore besides the health burden it carries its because a lot of things have changed over the years. I thought that if you work hard like show up on time and do what they told...

    Fed Up of Working

    Ever since the age of 14 I've been working.  I am now 52 and I'm fed up! Some day I would like to wake up and ask myself what to do! Today in my country it is Thanksgiving and although I have much to be greatful for, still I crave for a change.

    Who Gets Whacked Next ....

    Everything Is Just Not Right

    What Is A Job Anymore?

    I have tried several jobs, which either pay too little, have way too many constraints and politics, or simply consist of dredging out a daily living through the service supplied (whether needed or simply the latest fad). I am pretty much done with that. I worked in Columbus...

    I don't want kids because I don't want kids. Age, race, gender, etc has nothing to do with it. It's not something I want to put my mind and body through. Because I don't have to.
