So here I am, bored at work. I do a lot of thinking here, and thought I’d make a thread to get other people’s views and opinions.

I’m a normal 20 year old bloke, who left school with good A levels, but have no idea what I wants to do with my life.

I earn quite a good wage; it’s my first what you call “real job.” I have responsibilities and get a monthly salary. But it’s so boring. So boring I’m sitting here writing this.

I’m tied between trying to get a job doing something I love doing, (which I’m not sure what that is) or working up in London and try to earn big bucks.

We only live once, (contrary to some beliefs) and should make the most of it I feel. But to get anywhere in life you really need some sort of money behind you. With current house prices I’ll be living with my parents all my life unless I get a well paid job.

I just wanted people’s opinions on whether you’d rather do something you don’t really enjoy, but get paid well; or do something you enjoy, and not get paid much.

And no, getting both isn’t very likely so I’ll rule that one out.

Life just seems so pointless sitting at this desk, watching the clock, waiting for 5pm so I can toddle off home.

If you're asking what's better, happiness or money, it's a bit redundant.

No matter what your life is like, your mind will always create problems and prevent you from being happy....

....Nah, I'm just kidding (I'm really not).

Seriously though I haven't left school and can't stand it, 5 period days are so boring. I don't know how I'd cope in a 9-5 job.

Maybe I worded it wrongly. Money can make you happy, as you can afford things and live an affluent lifestyle.

I guess I'm just ranting because it's frustrating not knowing what to do in life.

I'd much rather sit at a desk bored but go home to a nice house and eat a good meal than play at work and have fun to go home to burger king for dinner in a single level home.

in anyway you must have interests, for example if u play guitar or something, make a band... or get a hobbie that u enjoy and try to find a job that matches it...u can still continue with ur 'boring' job as it pays u well untill u find a better one...
heh, my advices arent that useful, sorry

Well, try to find something that you don't absolutely HATE, an interesting job, the nearest to what you'd dream to have, AND that actually gives you a good salary. There's always something that can give a bit of happiness AND money at the same time.

School was worse actually, as in it drags more. Days actually go really quick here for some reason!

I think I've exhausted the whole of the internet's resources though.

Yeh, being a pornstar occured to me, but I don't like the idea of the whole world watching me make love to a beautiful woman.

:P:

I'm sure you can find something other than a pornstar. :P
