    My internship slowly ends and I have to say…. Thinking about this as my way to make a living… makes me depressed!

    4 guys in one office! I know it’s barely possible to work all alone… But spending EVERYDAY sitting with the same people the entire time?! I wouldn’t mind one co-worker as long as I could live with him/her. But THREE? The small office becomes even more annoying! Admited, 2 of the trio are ok., but the third guy is a PAIN!!! An old chubby man that loves to sing to the radio and make cheesy puns… He also has the „chubby old overweight SWEATY computer sciencie guy” syndrome…. For crying out loud, not ANOTHER ONE!

    This whole office life is a pain. Your TRAPPED inside this BOX for 8 hours, sitting there the whole time and doing some boring stuff… I also find the whole atmosphere of the place so FAKE! From one side everyone acts so nicy-nice, but on the other hand when the person leaves the room they badmouth that person….

    Another annoying aspect of this job, is the fact that… the working hours are PERMANENT! There’s a Schedule set up and you CANNOT leave earlier! Even when your done with work, your forced to stay there…. And wait…. And this wouldn’t bother me so much, if I was able to browse the Internet, but of course most of the websites I visit are blocked… I can accept the lack of pornography, but even some wiki websites get blocked… making the wait time a PAIN IN THE ASS! I could take out my sketchbook and draw, but… for how long? I once sketched for so long that my eyes started to hurt from the sun that was reflecting from the white sheets of paper!

    Also I see that even if the people in the office act happy… in reality, they are very depressed and hopeless. They did try to give me a few life advices… They told me that I did fuck up my life so far…. Yes, yes I know, What should I do? Their advice was to simply… get a job and forget about studying cause I’m far too old for college! … Come on! I’m not THAT old! I’m just twenty one years old! I do know it’s a bit late, but not too late and besides, … I cannot give up like that! If I’m suppose to stay in my hometown and get a job… then honestly, I’d be thinking of just going out on the street and lay there on the center.

    So, this whole internship pretty much proofed to me that the fabolous lifestyle of a computer science expert is really not for me! I had doubts between art and computers, but this seriously was a cold bucket of water to me… it’s not for me, no way!

    Ok., I’m still not that confident art shall bring me to the way I want to live, but I’m sure living as an artist or computer graphic specialist, would truly be much MUCH more satisfying than this! Working as a farmer sounds more tempting than this by far (no sarcasm *wink* )!

    never did understand the idea of work -- to join a group of people you wouldn't be affiliated with otherwise; to do something you otherwise wouldn't be doing, and actually has nothing to do with you, or your life; to report to, and be judged by someone who may be less intelligent, and less educated than you, and to have them tell you whether you're doing a good job or not

    just don't get it

    I guess everyone has a different way of living, different mentality, so some jobs are simply not good. A job is important... so I gotta get one eventually, but I've just came to notice how much I'd hate working in an office!

    LOL, exactly :biggrin1:
    It's the basic system of trade...... you exchange money for good and SERVICES.

    You do a shitty ass job and get money for it, makes sense since if it was fun, you'd have to pay them for doing it hehehe

    BUT... I think a job should be a bit fun and give you satisfaction... but the office life seems to make me want to stare in a mirror and ask "what the hell am I doing here?"

    I agree. I'm one of the lucky ones that really loves my job. I would go absolutely mental working in an office cubicle all day. My job allows me creativity, flexibility, plenty of time off, great pay/benefits/pension, and best of all I get to move around. I wish you well in finding a job that satisfies you. You spend so much time at work that you really have to enjoy what you do. If you don't, it will carry over into other areas of your life. Good luck!
