    Jesus christ I hate it.

    I never thought it would be this soul crushingly boring and shitty.

    Fuck this shit.

    But I still need money.

    My workday starts at 6:30, doesn't usually end until 4PM.

    It's a living.

    I work 3 days a week. A 16 and two 12s. It's tough for those 3 days but I have a 4 day weekend every week so it's worth it. I could never be a 9-5 guy.

    I did 9 to 5 for about two and half years. My soul was on life support. Started my own business and tripled my salary in less than two years. Go for it.

    Other than that, simply live cheaper and work part time.

    Has its pros and cons. Works for me though. I can pretty much work any type of schedule I want and after many years, this is what I've settled on. Saves gas money too.

    That's pretty rough, man. What kinda work do you do?

    I don't mind a job or working hard.

    It's just that what I'm currently doing feels soul-crushingly meaningless.
