- What is your No1 worry in life . . . . ?
Losing my job. Company has just announced a 1. something billion euro loss. Young, no dependant, savings, qualified so I’ll survice but I’ve just managed to find a job within 10 miles of my GF so was kind of hoping it would last for a long time as the long distance relationship thing really was a drag.Posted 9 years agosquattingmouseMember
Money – now that I a able to save saving isn’t worthwhile. I managed to hoist myself out of debt (except for student loans) last summer and now look with growing despair at getting a mortgage.
Monthly earnings aren’t the problem it’s a deposit for us and despite my parents offering to support us it still makes me feel uneasy asking them for help.Posted 9 years agosimonralli2Member
One of my best mates has asked me to record Avril Lavine’s “Skater Boy” and put it on youtube as it’s one of her favourite tunes. Do I sing the song word for word, or do I try and change the lyrics so it’s Skater Girl? The karaoke in Gibraltar is also the unofficial gay bar so I probably wouldn’t get grief for any trans-gender kareokying.Posted 9 years agoourmaninthenorthSubscriber
That the amount of work I have to do between now and Friday means that I get to leave the office before Friday.
That my relationship can cope with the ridiculous amount of work I currently have to do and the fact doing it will bring no financial advantage and probably no additional job security.
That if I burned down the office, how would I do it so I wasn’t caught….Posted 9 years agoSirJonLordofBikeMember

My default setting seems to be ‘anxious’. That’s what really worries me.
If I could just sail thru life not giving a **** about things that are out of my control or are unimportant [most things I think] I know I would be happier, but it’s easier said than done.
I really love riding my bike, I have a great relationship with my family, fantastic gf and I my closest friends asked me to be a godfather to their wonderful daughter, which is the best thing any one’s ever asked me to do. So I should be happy, but…
Work is another worry. I really need to find a job, but am put off by the interview rigmarole, unavoidable BS and Mon-Fri slog. I am not worried by lack of motivation and that worries me.

What the world will be like in 20 / 30 years time and therefore whether having kids for the sake of having kids is wise.
Cancer’s up there, with my family’s history.
The amount of work (essay-writing) I have to do in the next 4 weeks.
Finding a job / staying out of debt once studying is done.
Whether I’ll find enough time to bike / climb as much as I would like ever again. And missing the living in the Peak District for that reason, too.
The GF’s recent discovery (by the osteopath) that she has bone damage on her sacro iliac joint so might never realistically be able to enjoy her favourite activity, hillwalking, again.

The very distinct possibility of losing my job in a few weeks time is very much at the top of the list at the moment.
This is compounded with the thought that if I do I have absolutely no idea what I will do with the next half of my working life.
Over the last week or so it has dawned on me that my job and the company I work for defines to a great extent who I am in life and I do distinctly not like that feeling one bit.
I know I must take control, but I suspect that is perhaps my greatest weaknessPosted 9 years ago
