How do you get up in the morning knowing you have eight hours of being somewhere you don't want to be ? How do you motivate yourself?

Other than the paycheck how do you make yourself endure the day,especially if you spend the majority of your day stating at a computer screen?

Spend all the hours you can improving your position. Get another job, take classes. Whatever it takes - and is legal..

Excellent advice. I could have asked this question a few years ago. Amazing how a few years of school can change ones job opportunities

Hi Sas - how is school working for you? I didn't like to ask recently as you hadn't mentioned it...

you can always ask; I appreciate your interest. I have--again--put school on hold. But I'm ok with it this time as I'm finally working a job that will look great on a resume. Experience, plus school equals an even greater chance of success. My several year school career was the kick-start of a whole new me;). I'll go back again--I think I'll always enjoy taking classes on one subject or another.

Very glad to hear it's going well - the job and all. Taking classes is an excellent way of broadening horizons and your self, isn't it? I think I'd like to take some myself.

I was looking at creative writing classes here, but they're all remote now - I don't see the point, as interacting with other students is half the reason for doing these things.

Cheers!

How I motivate myself to go to school is I think about all my friends and stuff that I might miss if I don't go.. Find something like that

If you don't like where you are, then set some goals for yourself. If you're out of college then you could consider going back to school, so you can get a job doing something you enjoy. If not, then the whole world is left for you to explore. For the short term, just start watching a show or something after work, so you have that to look forward to every day.

Get a new job. Work the live, not live to work... Unless you enjoy what you do at least a little bit than you'll never be happy?
