    How pathetic am I, my life is so dull that I'm actually excited about going to work. Ha.

    Just inspecting circuit boards for flaws. Nothing exciting, but it'll put money in the bank and I'll finally have something to do with my days.

    There is nothing pathetic about being excited about work in my opinion. We all need to feel like we have a purpose and a reason to get out of bed in the morning. I'm one of the fortunate ones that loves my job, and earns a pretty decent income from it. True, there are some days where I get fed up, or don't feel like dragging my ass out of bed, but overall the good days outweigh the bad days so I can't complain. When I get too much time off work, I start to get really bored and look forward to returning. I am married, have a pretty active social life and outside interests, but I enjoy the structure and routine - not to mention the money that a job provides.

    The only pathetic ones are those who choose not to work when there is work available and live off the system without contributing anything to society.

    Enjoy your new job my friend!

    I was the same way at my old job. Only problem was the fact that that particular industry was rather fickle, and working for a small company meant a lot of downward fluctuation in my hours. I loved the work though, but I could only go back once I'm more financially stable. You know, get to the point where I don't absolutely need 40 hours of work each week.

    Taking long vacations bugs me. When I go back, I feel so unfamiliar with the place. And if I was the only one gone, I worry that something important happened in my absence and I'm being left behind.
