“I need a job.” How many times have I heard that one – I’ve heard it a million times. Living in a modern society based on a green piece of paper, I am burdened, and feel it maybe even impossible to survive without one. Without money, I wouldn’t have cars, clothes, livelihood or maybe even my health. Today it is simple, to luxuriate in finer things you need money, and to get money, I need a job. “I hate my job.” How many times have I heard that one? A million and one.
It seems nobody today is content with his or her job. So why do it? Because I have to work; hence, I don’t have an option. I feel that most people, like myself, find their place of work rather uncomfortable; however, I still need to keep my job. For the last two summers, I worked a job, which at first I thought was ideal. I was a PC/LAN Coordinator at Chippenham Hospital.

I felt my boss was nice to me, but this was just not a job that stimulated my interests.

The amount of desk work was boring, and I enjoy being around people and moving to different locations during the workday. Soon enough I hated my great job! I made the decision an office was definitely not the vocation for me. It even got to the point where I would feel apprehensive about coming into work every day, because I knew I would be doing the exact same thing in the exact same place. Then I set out a goal in my life: I will not anguish myself with a job with which I am not happy. I believe this objective is important – if I am going to a workplace every day that I hate, then I need to find a way to find another occupation that interests me. I see too many people for whom work ruins their lives, and I don’t believe my work should add so much stress that I have time for nothing else.
How can I live with that choice? Simply, if I every find myself in a miserable job, I will leave because life’s too important to be wasted away at a job that I don’t like. This is why I am planning to live my life in a career in whatever I will enjoy doing, so I won’t be devaluing my life in any manner.
