I hate threads like this, this is a bike forum, DAMMIT! Still, the hive mind is generally helpful with problems not relating to tyres, so we'll give it a go.
I'm thinking about quitting my job. I don't have anything lined up to fill the void.
Is this a bad idea?
Here are some facts:
-I work part-time (20 hr contract) in a certain discount clothing shop
-I travel, by unreliable trains, for about an hour and a half each way which costs me about £70 per month
-Shifts tend to be 4hrs, I've discussed doing 2x10 hrs or 3x7hrs, but the managers said it wouldn't fit into the rotor....which is bollocks.
-I find the work demeaning, unchallenging and generally numbing. It makes me angry. Very, very angry.
-I've worked there for nearly a year, it's getting to me, causing depression, lethargy, self-loathing etc etc.
-There is zero chance of progression.
-I have been looking/applying for jobs but it's gotten to the stage where all I want to do after work is sit. Just sit, somewhere, anywhere really.
-I have an idea for my own business, though it may take some time to gain momentum i.e. bring in anything like a livable sum.
The only reason I've hacked it this long is:
-It's a job
This now seems redundant. A job it may be, but it's causing me untold damage mentally and physically. I got paid to day and there seems to be no relationship between the measly sum transferred to my account and the amount of effort I've exerted this month. I'm exhausted and I don't feel it's worth it. I was a gnat's bollock away from walking out today.
Answers in before the inevitable "job's a job" and "just stick it, when I wo a lad..." and "man t' **** oop, tha's a bleedin' jesse" etc etc. Not helpful, not wanted.
Just to retain a shred of bike chat, OH EM GEE, HOW GOOD ARE COTIC SOULS?!?!
