I've been thinking lately.... where am i or rather are u heading? Nowadays, getting a degree has become so commercialized -- flip the papers and within 5 pages or so u r bound to see adverts on degrees. Even the 2 oldest unis here NUS and NTU are advertising themselves like they are selling products!
Almost anyone can get a degree these days as long as they have the $ and time.

Pay is getting pretty stagnated, things are getting expensive and working hours are usually getting longer.

So I thot of doing a poll...

Do we just work and work for the $$ or do we find a higher meaning to what we are doing?

I teach. I'm learning to like it by finding meaning in my job ... otherwise I'll be going through the motion and somewhere down the road I'll be asking myself what have done with my life ...
Wow, tt's a fast response!

That's good for you... I have many friends who are teachers. I get 2 extreme responses. Those who really love what they are doing (like u) and I applaude that... great. And those who simple couldn't stand it and quit after the bond is over. Usually the latter feel teaching is s**ty work and it's not as promising as what the adverts say...

Actually the adverts do have a grain of truth in them
but like all adverts, it's not showing you the whole picture.

The school system is not one big monolith with the same conditions for all of them.
All schools have different environments and circumstances.
It's like many different companies under the banner of one entity (i.e. MOE)

If you're lucky, there will be things that you like and it will be enough to mask the things you don't like.
If you're really lucky, you'll love everything.
If you're not, then you won't like anything you see.

If you want an idea of what the ads aren't telling you, then today's (25 june) forum page of the straits times will be a good place to start.

I used to like my job a lot in the first few years.
But, lately have been thinking of doing something else. Hopefully related to photography.
Doing something for a living which is your hobby is really great.

Actually my option is between 1 and 2

I dun treat the job as my hobby cos I'm not a workaholic but i'm motivated to complete my task in 1 way or another.

Depends on how u define good working enviroment? To me, there are always the angels and devils....$$ wise I "try" not to settle for less..As my major job staisfaction comes from $$$..keke

How can I not like a job that allows me to feed my family, give education to my kid, and enough left over for my hobby?

Instead of asking whether I really like my job, why not ask why you should not like your job? Are we infected with the ridiculous notion that "job satisfaction" is paramount?

Boring? Make it interesting. No prospects? Is prospect that important? I think the most important thing whether I like my job is the people around me. With good colleagues, I look forward to my job everyday.

I'm not a pro shooter anymore. I started to hate it when I depended on it to eat. Still love shooting for pleasure now.

I hate my job, but I only work the weekend. So every monday feels like a vacation. If only I could make more money as my photographic equipment I costing me. Personally for the last 2 yrs. I go to work but I'm not actually all there, my mind is other places just going through the tedious motions.

It's not the question whether I dislike my job or not.
My job allows me to do photography in the weekends.
It pays the bills and photography creats the bills
However job is limiting and consticting and monotonous
as I only do part of the process
I have to depend on so many people for other parts
With photography I practically decides on everything
Except God decides whether it's going to rain or not
and the model's parents decide how she looks like

:sweatsm:
