No not the excellent first album by the Kaiser Chiefs, but jobs, like it or not we all need one unless you are very very lucky. however i would argue that we still all need something to do, everyone needs to feel their day has purpose.
I've just got back from a climbing instruction session and have remembered why I could never do it as a job, if I am truly honest I find it boring, there is absolutely no mental stimulation for me, I'd start going stir crazy. My job as a teacher on the other hand makes me feel alive, I come home tired but happy, knowing that I've worked hard and also that my brain has had to work, pitting yourself against a class of 15 year olds will do that to you!
Some people go to work because they just want to earn a living to support their lifestyle, I work because I can't imagine not working, I need to have my brain put to work each day.

Anyway serious post over, your usual light hearted babbling will resume tomorrow or maybe a bit later!


  1. I know exactly what you mean. I am going insane over the fact that I have a job but it's not going to start until at least 29th! I have weeks of sitting around to do still!

  2. I agree with you about needing something to do and to fill the day and to feel productive - I work freelance and if I have downtime between gigs I can find myself frustrated even if I fill the time with other productive things because my brain craves the challenge that my career provides...
