10+ years in IT. Don't hate it, but it's less personally fulfilling. But I work for a great company so the work is just work and I spend my free time doing personal goals.

This is one of those things previous generations never really taught to kids until it was too late. So many times were we told to "do what you love and you'd never work a day". A job is a means for resources to be traded for goods and services. I will very clearly hammer into my kids brain is that you work to make money and that's it. Find a career that gives you the best work/life balance while meeting your "lifestyle" desires. Also not telling them that if they don't go to college they will be poor and sad their whole life.

I was doing my PhD when I started my keyboard channel, I graduated just before christmas 2016. Moved back early 2017 and have been working this job since then.

I used to have a much larger overlap in my life between work and play. It was kind of natural since I work as a developer and was going to school for the same thing. My life kind of revolved around coding, tinkering with electronics, and homelab stuff. But now, after schooling and working in the industry for a number of years, I do anything I can to avoid work-like activities after working hours. My hobbies have become much more phsical to get me away from a screen.

yeah nvm turns out I'm taking automotive engineering and possibly motorsports, life changes i guess. i just figured even if IT is a much much MUCH safer bet than motorsports for making a living, I'm not sure i wanna do that my whole life. even interning as IT sure it was super easy and i made money but i got bored so fast it was depressing

(...)Whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women's lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.
I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is b.s.

I'm a web developer. Wasn't the kind of career I was hoping for, to be honest, but it is what it is.

I've worked in the building trades since I was 17. Spent about 15 years doing carpentry, now I am a union painter since I was able to come in as a journeyman & make top rate from the go.
