I really don't understand people who claim that they wouldn't know what to do with themselves if they didn't have a job to go to. Seriously? They must be really boring people. If I didn't have to work, whether I had many resources or not, I would never be at a loss for something to do which was more enjoyable than sitting at work. Perhaps part of what contributes to such a feeling is the fact that I do not like my job, or any job I've ever had. Maybe if my work was also something which I loved and believed in I would not mind spending so much time at it, can't say. However, even if that were the case I'd still prefer to work from home or something.
Actually, there was one job I liked. It was at a little, family run health food store in Bennington, Vermont. I worked there part-time while I was in school and I never dreaded having to go there even when I was tired or had a crap load of work to do. It was so calm and relaxing to be there. The owner had us all sit down everyday at ten thirty for tea and snacks. But big, corporate monsters will probably put them out of business w/in a few years time.

It's so beautiful out right now. It's raining and the sky is practically lavender with pink and blue clouds with a rim of dark green mountains. That's the one thing that's amazing about living in Vermont, the reason I moved here to begin with, it's always so beautiful and serene. There are very few places in this state one can go and not see the mountains or at least fields, trees, and cows.

Okay, I'm trying to do too many things at once. Gonna call it a night. Hope all is well with the blogosphere. See ya.

Nellie,
I don't get people like that either. And I am with you. The only job I ever liked at all was bartending. Everyone is always happy to see a bartender, much like a fireman. I just work now to earn a living (dying).

Did you go to the Bennington college? Very exclusive that.

We will suffer our jobs together.

Much love,

SB

Glad to know someone out there thinks like I.

SB - Yeah, I went there for a year. I really liked it. I left for stupid reasons and wish I hadn't.
