Let's have a troll free serious lounge topic for a change please... The past 48 hours have possible been the worst in my life, rough shit has happened and its made me think a lot. I don't think I am very happy and the sad part is I cannot even remember when I was actually happy or content with things. Its been a while (3+ years at least) I don't do IM, I was a freelance web designer, I enjoyed it and did OK at it but I got approached by a company to work in house originally on an 8 week contract and now I've been there for over 18 months. I loved it at first as my job was 100% web design, without pain in the arse clients in a cool place. I did a fucking great job on this eccommerce store, I took it from £XXXX in lifetime sales to £XXX,XXX in under a year. But the fun stuff is over, my job is customer support based now, tech support, product updates, packing boxes, answering calls and emails about things I just don't give a fuck about... Mundane shit. I have no job satisfaction at all and its left me burnt out, uninspired and just bored from the moment I arrive to the moment I leave. I'm not even happy when I get home as I know I have another day of this tomorrow. I cannot state where I work, but its cool. It really is but working 6 days a week, 9am - 6pm for 18 months with less than 2 days off has caused me to sacrifice friends, energy, relationships and really my life. Its just not worth it and the novelty has worn off. The people there are OK, money is average and I'm on a profit share, but the job itself sucks and I don't seem to be appreciated at all for the work I have done. After spending most of Sunday in police cells on a false allegation it was too much to ask to get Monday off. Remember in 18 months I've had 2 days off. But my job is not the only thing getting to me. My friends are boring the shit out of me, none of them have ambition they just seem happy in crappy jobs (like real crap jobs), talking shite at the pub. Nothing happens, same old shit every time I see them. My family are 90% assholes, I really have no close relationships with any of them and after this weekend I can say at least 2 of them are dead to me. Turning up home to just my dog is getting to me, I'm probably at least a bit lonely but it could just be all the other stresses getting to me. Money wise I am comfortable, no debt or anything hanging over me. But seriously I need to change something and soon, I am 25 and unhappy and I think I deserve better... But I honestly don't know what the fuck to do first. Give me your honest opinions on what you would do, it might help me see a bit more clearly.
