Work is way overrated.  Most of the disruptions to my serenity come from the JOB.  

But I am damn grateful to have one. There are almost zero prospects for entry level or experience in my profession.

I hear ya man. Most of the country has 6 week vacations, but I'm a contract employee so I get ZERO without taking a pay cut. I haven't had a vacation that wasn't just a long weekend in about two years. But at least I've got the job and it can pay off all my college debt.

I got tired of work sucking, so I moved to Hawaii and started my own businesses.

Funny thing... when I was an employee the hours draaaaaagggged by.  Now that I work for myself time flys!

I could never be an employee again.

When I was working my saying was: "I love my work, I hate my job".

I feel your pain.  Yesterday at work I had actual work to do almost until lunchtime.  I'm not used to that.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

Someday I want to open a brewpub, I don't think I'll hate working as much when that happens. But I've come to realize, that it's not necessarily the job I'm working at, it's just that I don't like working in general.  I think I'd be just as unhappy at any other job, unless it was one of the things I'm passionate about like drumming, bike riding, brewing...
But the way I see it is work allows me to do the things in life I want to pursue.  Rather than living to work, I work to live.  I don't understand the mentality that you should live for your job.  So as you can see, I'm not a career oriented person...
Go big AND go home.

I actually like my job and I'm glad to have it but this time of year, I am dependant on a lot of other people to do their job so I can do mine and when they don't, I'm the one that has to take the heat for it from our customers.  Absolutely nothing I can do about it but get the blame.  Of course, the people that didn't do their job work in another division and have different goals so they don't care.  Just get tired of being 100% accountable to my customers and no one is accountable to me.

April is the worst month.  Maybe I'll take April off next year and go on a brewery tour of Europe or something.
