I work in IT as a Storage Engineer and I'm pretty good at what I do, and in some ways I enjoy it, but as far as I'm concerned, work is work, and not really my passion. I have my real passion and (I've fagged up my facebook timeline endlessly spewing about my passion so I won't do that here) that's what keeps my heart on the even keel.

I seem to be engaged, though, so that is at least good.

How did I not know this? I guess you didn't mention it on the social media. Congrats!

Life has been a little more interesting lately.

There are a lot of problems with the 'do what you love" argument about jobs, read a great article a few years ago and have since never been able to find it again, but the gist was that jobs which people do "for love" tend to also be low-paying "caretaker"-type jobs. The idea that people do them out of "love" becomes a justification for the low payrates, because the emotional fulfillment aspect then becomes seen as part of the compensation. This particularly affects things like education and nursing, which are arguably underpaid compared to their value! Again, have never been able to find this article again, but it was really interesting.

... of course I work in education. Thankfully my SO is in finance! Which he does not love, but which allows him to support a lifestyle that we both enjoy.

Does it count as "loving your job" when one of the things that keeps me going in is the unpredictable absurdity of what to expect will be happening at work, seen as a form of entertainment? As an example, many overtime hours (and lots of replacement parts) were spent refurbishing old equipment that those of us on the floor knew was slated to be decommissioned / scrapped, but the plant manager insisted on the rebuild work being done because he thought he was going to be able to convince headquarters he had a reason to keep these machines in service. As the work crew was about to start rebuilding the last old machine, a nationwide order was sent from headquarters saying, Not stocking parts for them any more, send the serial numbered components back, throw everything else away.

Reminds me of a friend's grandfather telling us stories about doing WPA work during the depression ordered by FDR...
On Mondays and Wednesdays we dug holes in the ground.
Was that all you did?
Nope, on Tuesdays and Thursdays we filled the holes back in.

Finished college last year and spent the year off pretty much. Working on my YouTube channel, waiting to hear back from a substitute teacher job, and maybe taking an exam soon for a government job. If I land the government job will be in the next building over from my father under his former boss which would be kind of funny and weird.

um

Where'd all the stuff go?

Did 2016 kill the forum as well?

Or try to, it's clearly invincible.

Just completed my annual read-last-years-MT.

The mind's gradually deteriorating more and more towards disorder, I work a job I hate from how mundane yet grating it is, and I'm moderating a forum for dark triad crazy people.

It could be worse.

If you look beneath this topic, it'll say "showing x of x topics" sorted by "last post date" in "descending order" from "the last 30 days"

Change "the last 30 days" to "the beginning", and you'll see the older topics.
