that's a large part of it too lol - that I could start doing something else but I'll get paid absolute jack and have to start all over again right when I'm finally able to start saving some money. Sooo lousy pay for potentially fulfilling work or decent pay for boring unfulfilling but easy job? Bleh.

Also yes soup brain.

But also for some dumb reason it's reminiscing about some girl I dated 10 years ago and then I feel like a shithead for even having said thoughts when I'm with a lovely person right now.

I wish I had a job that I felt proud of doing. Or was just making more money or something.

Just that usual thing where I feel like I've completely wasted the ludicrous headstart and advantages I was given over most people

Brain is really pulling up a smorgasbord of these things usually it's more focused

How bout you, what's yours focusing on now?
relate to all of this

working from home is driving me crazy, feeling unambitious and unmotivated. miss the few social interactions that i was having pre-covid. anxious about taking next steps in my relationship (marriage + house + kids) but that's where i'm headed. don't want to leave my gf but also am scared about making more sacrifices in my life because i feel so unfulfilled as it is. just anxious about everything lol

also my brain is soup
i 100% feel the same way about my org. is this how everyone in the corporate world feels?

starting to think that i would enjoy blue collar work more. feeling like my skillset directly goes toward something instead of fulfilling bullshit requirements from management that feel totally arbitrary.

yea i feel like i spend 50% of my work time dealing with meta nonsense about WHAT IT MEANS TO WORK AT THIS ORGANIZATION and HOW TO MOVE FORWARD and STRATEGY and shit when i just want to code shit man give me a project or leave me alone

yes. why do they think this stuff helps. it's every corporate cliche comes into fruition and they don't notice how ridiculous it is. i swear to god there was a month long period where i heard the word "relentless" in company meetings 50 times lol

am currently very very anxious about making minimal progress on my current project and this last week has been 100% meetings and ad-hoc data requests that seem to only exist to appease management. feels like the only way to make genuine progress right now is to start working nights and weekends which i also can't bring myself to do hocuspocus;

eah I definitely feel you on the joys of marital bliss too. I do want to get married, but the actual hubbub around the ceremony itself is gonna be super stressful. I do want to get a house, but that takes some serious saving and money over time. I do want kids but I know that means 20 years of focusing on them rather than having much time to work on any personal goals.

Bleh. These are definitely first world problems but it still stresses my candy ass out

Hiro

don't have kids, have a small wedding like I did, problem solved wrench;
but yeah no in my experience blue collar jobs have just as much bullshit to deal with as white collar jobs, although it probably depends a lot on the industry
I don't think most jobs are actually meaningful in any real way too, which is why I want to do creative work because I at least appreciate the results
