Think I'll vomit if scheduled to work tomorrow

Going to just jump right in, so climb aboard to where I"m currently at in life with employment.

First off, if I could earn money without being employed, I would, so that says a lot in that work is just a necessary evil for myself and most.

Don't get me wrong, busy I would stay, but laboring for another for pennies on the dollar I would not do, why should ?

Most jobs are basically high wage slavery, that's right, high wage slavery, not speaking of salaried positions , talking hourly positions.

The key is also to have a passion for what you do, some do, some do not, and or if do, can get burned out from doing the same thing over and over again without promise of promotion or more training.

To speed this up, cause got other things to do.

I signed contract to work 3 days a week, like 3, 10-14 hour days, and that's all I want.

I don't need to mindlessly show up to a job 5-6 days a week just to be there, for one going to work cost money, gas, food, and other things you spend while going to and from work.

So I was lucky to find company that combined all of that into 3-4 days, I chose the 3 days on, 4 days off.

Over the past holiday they kind of broke from that, fine, but now ready to go back to that schedule.

I'm older now, and as such 'Time' is money to me, no amount of money I can earn in a day can replace the 'time' I'm not home and free to do as I please.

Time and health become more important to you as you age.

Going to end this here and as I add more posts, I'll begin sharing link to this post, but right now just wanted to get the ball rolling on here.
If you'd like to comment on your own job feel free to comment.

I've had enough

I've had enough of this Holiday schedule, which means working more days than signed on for, I'm older now, so don't need to work long grueling hours anymore, if working long grueling hours mattered, I'd of been a millionaire long ago.

I only desire either 3 long days in a row or a week, or 4 shorter days, as in 8 hours, maybe 9, but that's it.

This idea that I can just work my butt off and retire with wealth at my age is a joke, if couldn't do so while in my 20's, it isn't going to occur now.

So now, 'Time' is what matters to me, and my health of course.

I gave many good years of my life to 'industry in the past, and the net gain...zero.

And I just don't have anymore of my time/life/health to give away.

I also noticed when all you do is work, come home and sleep, that.

1. You begin to neglect your physical health

2. You begin to neglect your physical looks, as in grooming, is why so many in the blue collar world looks so 'shot' all the time, like they've just given up on the whole idea of 'fashion'.

3. You stop exercising, which effects you health in a big way, work does not equal exercise, not even....even if job is 'hard', it's not the same as cardio exercise, is why so many coal miner type men died so young back in the day.

4. You start to give up on your dreams, your personal goals.

And I could go on and on.

Every ones life is different, people are at different junctures in their or our lives...some are single, others married with kids and so forth.
Some enjoy what they do, others hate what they do, and or maybe hate the 'work environment'.

Even the dirtiest job can seem fun if working around fun people

And that's the key, work environment is the key.

On my job I'm very alienated while at work, so there's like no emotional support, nothing, just complete assignment after 12 or so hours then go home.

Tomorrow letting boss I need to go back to a 3 day work week, and if can't, will just quit...heck I probably need 2 months off anyways.

This idea I or one has to work every single day of the year until dead...says who?

And also with 'C' virus out there everywhere, I don't need constant exposure to it by leaving home 4 days a week...I just don't need it.

More to follow, just got in and wore out.

So much more to life than employment, never forget that

There's so much more to life than employment, never forget that.

I personally demand to only work 3 days a week, sure they're longer days, but that's all I need now at my stage of life.

As such, it opens up time for me to get engaged in other things that matter, like volunteering and helping others.

(had to cut this post short)
