Anyone else just wake up and realize they just don’t like working? Any tips on winning the lottery without playing? On a serious note, I’ve noticed I don’t enjoy the work I’m doing, I want to stay motivated and at times I am but I feel like there’s a lot in the way of attaining my definition of success. Have to sit for my cpa, keep my managers happy, maintain internal firm responsibilities. How do you stay motivated, is this just being stuck at home during quarantine? contd.

I’m not in the best spot financially but I’ll get myself out of it (I’m on track with my plan), but it does drive me crazy to think I have to spend years doing what I don’t enjoy (I get really great reviews) to maybe end up in MC to finally feel like I can excel. Is it possible I’m building up MC to being more than it is and it’s devaluing the work I am doing?


If you want it bad enough you'll find the motivation m if you dont go find something you do want badly and are happy to work hard for.


Success in your field. Financial stability. Developing your skills. Whatever it is you get from your work.

Lotteries always post the odds of winning on their website with how many prizes are claimed. Useful for increasing your odds on scratch offs. Just sayin. Not that the odds are great....

Here’s my dilemma. I started as a temp in the traffic department as a scheduler in April of 2021. I was making 44K a year with ZERO benefits.
I applied for a different position in logistics and got the job! BUT is came with a HUGE pay cut. I went from making 44K a year to 32K. I work my butt off and feel like I should be making more for my responsibilities. I’ve only been here a year but I do more than I should.
Is it too soon to renegotiate my pay?

Advice on how to get SO to take more initiative with housework? He has a very flexible work schedule that allows him to work significantly less hours than me (roughly 1/2 the amount of my work schedule), however I still end up taking on the majority of the cleaning, errands, and handiwork around the house. Past conversations we’ve had where I try and express to him that I need more support have not been well received and just result with him getting defensive.


Anybody get the third shot yet? My friend is an MD and qualified for a third shot. He got the moderna shot on Monday. He said he was bedridden for three days. Just curious if anybody else had this experience. I'm still going to get the third shot either way when it's my time because the risk/benefit works out for me.

I am currently on a 2 month LOA from a big box retail store to care for a child having surgery. I have been contacted with a job offer in office admin which I studied at College last year. I want to start new place before I leave first place to be sure I like it. Do I need to tell my current employer? The new place is willing to work around his needs and do a home/office hybrid for a few weeks.


Why do you treat me so differently after I came back from maternity leave?

Why are my quick win features you once praised, suddenly examples of areas we are lacking in execution?
Why are ideas I previously proposed, suddenly being attributed to being the brain child of another?
Why suddenly when I'm doing my job, but unable to go 150%, am I not valued anymore?
Why do you suddenly cut me off in meetings or table my questions for a later that never comes?

Why wasn't it like this before?

Is drinking with your coworkers THAT important? I’ve been sober for 6 months but I don’t like advertising that at work. I don’t enjoy going to happy hours with coworkers. Didn’t even when I did drink. It’s also just so discriminatory against mothers and fathers who need to be home after work. But I got invited to a small happy hour 40 minutes away from my house by some people I don’t work with but would love to one day and I don’t have the time or care to go but hate that I feel like I need to.
