I just have to say, I’m so so happy that I no longer do the 9-5 grind. It was absolute torture. I would commute an hour, twice a day, to a job that was so incredibly boring I’d wish I could jab a pen in my eye just to keep me awake.
I think the only fun part of the job was that we had these cool conference calls at Zip conferencing where the coworkers would all “meet” once a week to discuss how the company was doing. My coworkers and I would get on IM and rag on the rest of the boring coworkers, so it was always good for a laugh! But I do not miss it even one little bit. My days are more flexible and now I do work that is meaningful to me. Wouldn’t change it for a thing!
