    And it feels like life is passing me by.

    I aspire to change this drastically in 2-3 months. It's going to happen. It needs to happen. Life isn't all about money. If anything **** money go live in caves and trees hunt off the land!!! Like nature intended. Jk not really... but seriously though I work too much.

    I work evenings and weekends.

    I live alone. With my work schedule I feel very lonely. I have no friends or family. I have a boyfriend, but he seems to be becoming more distant every day. I don't blame him. I wish I could change things but I cant. It would be nice to be able to talk to someone.

    Balance In All Things

    Says one of my friends. Of course he has whatever it is that people with satisfying balanced lives have - if I could tell you what it is I would, but lacking it entirely I cannot. I work 50 60 not infrequently 70 hours a week. Even a dolt like me knows that isn't right, isn't...

    Chicken and Egg

    I've been working my current job for 9 years and now have some "clout" when it comes to my hours.  That's the good news.  The bad news is I work too many hours.  I don't know whether I have no life because I work too many hours, or I work too many...

    How to Fix My Work Issues?

    I've worked at the same place for 13 years.  They rely on me so much.  And I feel like it's my "home" -- I have such a strong connection to the place.  But it consumes so much of my time -- I work at least 1/4 of the weekends every year and I just can't...

    I can see the workplace from my bedroom window

    so the nights I don't work I go over to randomly help out and my colleagues come my house most nights for a post-work drink. I can't leave it alone.

    The Work Hangover...

    The Work Hangover, the worst kind of hangover. Terrible because at no point in the preceding twelve hours was there any fun to be had. But it doesn't stop there. You fall out of bed in the morning and stumble, bleary eyed down the stairs. You negotiate the obstacle course of...

    I really need to find a new job I work 15 hour

    days, I work six days a week and never hear anything positive. I have taken a failing branch and in less than 6 months made it profitable and still only hear negatives. My work life balance is 94/6 and I am not even appreciated at work.

    Jobs Are Easy To Hate. Do Something Else.

    I've always hated having a job. It doesn't matter what the job is, the fact is, if I have to go to work every day for someone else I'm not a happy person. What it boils down to for me is I don't want to be working to line someone else's pockets. The hard work and dedication I...

    My Life Revolves Around Work

    I love working, but I work too much, and I know it. You could say I'm obsessed. The reason? I'm a contractor. I never actually mentioned this before, but this is it. Being on a contract, I work when there is work to be done. I have a house mortgage to pay off. I fear that when my...

    Balance

    I love to work, but I love my family too. My job keeps me away for days at a time or brings me home as my kids go to bed. I feel as I never see my family. When I'm off the guilt of not doing my fair share around the house weighs down on me. If I get a job that allows me to be...

    Entirely Too Much

    I work 80hrs some weeks. I work 6 days a week and often only have 1 day month off. It's not money as much as it is something to do. I make plenty of money and can survive off of only a couple days a week. I work too much and have nothing to show for it.

    This weekend is a "I Get Paid Too Little For

    This ****" weekend. My F-time job owns me 48 hours this week and my P-time owns me for another 30. Thank God! I'm not working 80 hours this week. That would be a travesty! No. 78 hours sounds Sooo much easier. But, then again, I'm not in the group that doesn't have a job. That...

    I work way too much. It seems

    as if I am always working, in fact I moved away from my family so that I can work more. I miss them and wished I could be back with them, but even when I was there I worked all the time, so I moved and now have two houses to maintain. I get to see them every couple months and...

    Easier Than Being Home

    I tend to stay at work as much as possible....I control what happens there, for the most part, and it is easier than being home alone.
