heavy is the head that wears the crown

"Goddamn! This crown of pure gold and assorted jewels is so heavy! Where's my crown holder?! I need to swim in my money. What's poverty?"

Honestly, though. I'd rather work twelve hours and be able to live comfortably without having to worry about the IRS knocking on my ******* door.

I could never have an office job. I would hate it so much. i mean, sitting at a desk on a computer all day... oh wait...

Big difference my friend, although you won't be physically restricted like everybody else.

I think the message posts like these convey is this: Don't just fall into any nondescript role you don't care for, deep down, and expect things to just get better over time. It's quite possible to aspire to things without being unrealistic. If you enjoy science, you can get a job in that department without necessarily requiring a PhD. If you're passionate about food, you can start off as a kitchen porter, and work your way up to chef. If you care for fashion, get a job in a store/department which specialises in clothing, and work your way up.
Aspire to reasonable goals you can see yourself getting at least some satisfaction out of, rather than just trudging into a job you have no passion for. Even if a job you despise is all you have available to you, go for it, and tell yourself it wont need to last forever if you try hard to seek other work.

Posts like these don’t criticise hard workers. They criticise people who don’t care where they wind up, and yet wonder why they aren’t getting satisfaction out of their day.

absolutely lovely but you're not getting into science without academic certification
User avatar #150 to #122 - arisaka (12/14/2012) [-]
But as soon as you become passionate about art or design you are scorned by society and deemed useless by your peers.

Or work faithfully for 8 hours a day, then get a raise and work faithfully for 8 hours a day and more money.

Or work faithfully for 8 hours a day, then retire and don't work at all because you saved for the future.

Or work faithfully for 8 hours a day, become a boss, and screw off on company time for 8 hours a day, and work for another 4.

Or find a job you love and never work a day in your life.

Well, I thought it relevant enough that you might use it.

Or you can work harder than anyone in the business and learn how to do more stuff then the people that went to college to do their job and still make the same amount of money that you did while you started. God I hate my job

Sad to hear that there are more of us out there. I work in a french restaurant, started off as a waiter making $7.25 an hour not counting tips which would only be about $10-$20. We're not really a tip giving place since its also a cafe. Anyway eventually i start working with the cheifs that went to college to get to that kind of position (Im in my first year of community college for my ITT degree) they get paid twice as much as I do. Recently they hired a new waiter that can only work the front not the front and the back like how I can. He also screws up a lot and stands around talking to the boss's wife a lot, yet he makes $9 an hour plus tips. I dont care if I am a bit younger, I know my worth.

TLDR: I need to turn in my 2 week notice.
#45 to #42 - zielscheibe (12/14/2012) [-]
Yeah this is pretty much happening everywhere - I am a eurofag from Germany and we have the same thing going on. As an electrician i can tell you it is not that different -    
   
you earn your worth and climb up step by step just to be replaced by some new guy fresh out of school  * knowning nothing * - he wrote a lot about the stuff he sees but wreading about  and solving practical problems is  a big difference.    
   
You cant take them out to fix damaged stuff on there own  but they get payed  10/12+ Euros an hour  and i worked 6 years to get my 8,5/9 Euros     
   
and worst of all is if you get a 22 or 24 year old guy as your Boss and  he needs to ask you how to do it before he orders you to do it ....   -.-     
   
Its like a ball to the face

Yea my dad is in maintenance and his old boss thinks he knows everything but he has to ask dad how to do **** and then takes credit for doing it. And then he got laid off.

and get 5 times more money
#38 to #1 - bothemastaofall (12/14/2012) [-]
There comes a point where more money doesn't mean much. Kinda like getting max money in a video game. You can only do so much cool stuff with money. After that it's just a number
User avatar #56 to #38 - makethingsworse (12/14/2012) [-]
...it's not about doing something with the money, it's about not having to worry about it. I don't NEED to buy a ******* jet-ski with spinners. I NEED to pay bills, I NEED food. When you're poor, just having money is the greatest luxury.

You're not the only one who wouldn't mind working a lot. People like us found something we actually like, so working won't be complete hell to wake up to. Sure it won't be perfect, but what job is? I personally can't wait until I'm out of college to start working.
User avatar #123 to #121 - madjackwack (12/14/2012) [-]
finding a job you enjoy is ******* hard dude. i'm scared ******** for when i have to provide for myself, it's gonna be horrible.
User avatar #124 to #123 - Sharpy (12/14/2012) [-]
Are you in college yet? If not, just make sure as you start studying for your actual degree and not your gen eds that you're studying something you're interested enough in to want to learn more. The worst thing you could do is force yourself to learn the most important stuff in your life. I love science and I'm really good with numbers, so I'm majoring in biomedical physics with a minor in math. People are like "wtf how can you do that? it sounds awful..." To me, though, it's not that bad. I actually enjoy my calculus homework.

And then, in 8 years when I'm finished with med school I'll be a doctor and loving life while people who made fun of me for biomedical physics can take my order.
User avatar #131 to #124 - madjackwack (12/14/2012) [-]
well i'm studying music, i ******* love it but i'd rather get a job with less competition and somethings more office like and computer related. but now i'm 18 i have to pay for education, and i need a job to pay for it, but i need education for a job. i'm ****** .
User avatar #132 to #131 - Sharpy (12/14/2012) [-]
That's the fun of student loans...I have nothing to pay for school other than loans. I have little grants and no scholarships. By the time I'm done with school I'll have a good 200-300 thousand dollars in school debt. But then again, I'll be walking out of there making 120K+ a year...

that's reassuring, i guess i'm just glad i'm not a 			*******		 idiot like 70% of people my age. hopefully i find a job that will help me pay off those debts otherwise i will be in even more 			****		. anyway thanks bro, you're awesome. good luck in your science shizzle.

I was reading something somewhere, that no matter what the topic is, if you put 10,000 hours into any single task, you will become a master at it

10,000 hrs is a long time, but there have been multiple studies to prove that this number is the most accurate number

Just keep that in mind.

Well you're either underage, they're taking the piss out fo you and you should report as u have to get 6.08 minimum or you don't leave in UK and you dont have to pay over £1000 rent!!!

£8.30 really isn't that bad. My Mum is on £6-7 an hour.
User avatar #151 to #114 - icedcarbon ONLINE (12/14/2012) [-]
yeah... its actually £6.11, but because my company has a contract in the crossrail project, every guard has to be paid minimum £8.30, so we get a bonus of £2.19, if it wasn't for this project I'd be getting £6.11
User avatar #107 to #105 - madjackwack (12/14/2012) [-]
why? because he has a job?

i wish i could mate, honestly. but scrawny shy pricks like me get shat on in the military.

Military makes men out of the least of us. If you have the will power, you'll do fine. They take good care of you.
User avatar #116 to #113 - madjackwack (12/14/2012) [-]
i spent so long dreaming about being an officer, and i convinced myself that everyone in the BA even the low ranking soldiers were there as a passion, not a chore. but the truth hit me that alot of people in the army are just rough boys from the **** ends of Britain who couldn't get a job so they joined the army. those are the people that will look down on me and keep my confidence at an all time low.

either way i'm too old to think about joining, and i don't regret missing the chance hopefully i get a respectable job either way.
User avatar #118 to #116 - ecthelion (12/14/2012) [-]
G'luck, mate. Luckily, Canadian Military is still as passionate as it's ever been. Mind you, we got some crazy redneck/lumberjack fellahs in there. Love em to death.
