Kudos to the OP, very well put. You've pretty much summed up what I've been feeling for the last 5 years. I'm no longer in high school, and the 4
yrs in college are long behind me, I'm 35.
The biggest challenge I've had in the past 5 to 7 years is trying to find a point to the daily grind,
I've even tried changing careers, only to find out my 'piece of paper' is no longer enough, and I can't afford a new one.
It seems all there is in life, put on a smile for the sycophants and morons that employ you, and enjoy being 'specialized' into a mind number career
with no variety or room to think.
Add to the that the fact that (here in Canada anyway) half your hard days earnings are going straight to the gov (who I wouldn't trust to give me the
correct change for a chocolate bar but have to trust with half my pay).
It starts to feel like the little money you have left goes to paying for silly fees and licenses and rent...just so you have a place to sleep and a
way to get to work again the next day.
Everyone I know is too busy working to pay the bills that their marriages are going to crap, and they have no time to let loose (except the rare bout
of binge drinking cause they feel they have to pack the party into one evening). And their children are being emotionally and psychologically left
behind to fend for themselves.
What is the point? Still hoping find one here someday. BTW...ya I'm hoping for the when the S.H.T.F. too, just to have some relief
