    Ok, maybe I don't hate my job

    so much, as it is not the right fit for me. I have Aspergers and really hate being in an office of chatty people and trying to keep up with conversations. It is exhausting. I just want to do my work. After being unemployed for 4 years and going back to get my degree during two...

    My job is just unbelievable.

    I'll try to sum it up by telling you about the folks I work with: First, there is this supermodel wanna-be chick. Yeah, okay, she is pretty hot, but damn is she completely useless. The girl is constantly fixing her hair or putting on makeup. She is extremely self-centered and...

    Few years ago I found myself overwhelmed with

    Did I Waste 4 Years In College And $30,000 To Get A Receptionist Job?

    I didn't start college until I was 25. My parents had a good income but they blew it all on garbage, so I didn't qualify for many grants, but they didn't help me out so I had to wait until their income no longer counted against me when it came to loans and grants. I worked all...
