    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...

    Not Retired - Just Tired!

    I'm 55 and have been working since I was 10.  I am grateful to have a very good job, like what I do, enjoy my co-workers, and work in a good environment.  Unless I win the Lottery, this is it!!!  However, with what I lost recently in retirement funds, realistically...

    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.

    I Was In The Service, It Wasn't For Me...now I'm Making My Own Money. Residually!

    Even as the navy veteran I am, it was hard for me to find work! Struggling to stay committed to school, I am yet again changing college programs (for the 4th time!). I am an entrepreneur at heart but of course I would like to stick with something to have as a "plan b". But...

    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...

    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...
