Yup, there's only a couple people I know who could heed that advice on here unfortunately.

Re: F...Returning to work after vacation!

Well, you all would be like BSB. I am enjoying myself and would have it no other way. I went to grad parties for a couple of weeks and those are now dying out. Now I spend my time going bowling and playing poker. The truth is after a while there is nothing left to do but the good thing everyone is in the same situation so we all get bored together and have to find something to do. I could imagine it would get horribly boring if all your friends had work and didn't want to do anything late at night or something.

I take it you'll all have some kind of funds to support your new lifestyle so I won't go there. I tell you this though, you'll get bored eventually. The first year or two might seem like heaven but at some point you'll realize how boring your life is. People _need_ work.

Re: F...Returning to work after vacation!

I think the main thing that would get annoying is the fact that all your friends would most likely be working. It's one thing to go to bars or play poker (in person) or whatever with other people, but if you're alone all the time that's when you get bored.

BSB sort of touched on it, at least most of his friends are also doing nothing so they can get together and figure out ways to pass the time. For the most part, all of your friends are going to bed early on the weekdays and they'll probably use their weekends to get stuff done, like going to Home Depot or maybe Bed Bath and Beyond if there's enough time. That's why you'd get bored rather fast.

If I were to become instantly set for life through the lottery or a lawsuit or something I think I would try to bankroll some friends just so I'd have people to hang out with when I want. No wonder rich people have entourages.

AMD - At these prices, I'm not surprised...

Funds of support aside, as much as work sucks, I'd have to do something if I wasn't working. Doesn't have to be work...I kinda see myself doing what Drew Carey does with the US Soccer team. I'd take a few classes, buy 10s of thousands of bucks in camera equipment, and travel to different places taking photos of nature, sports, etc.

In between trips, i'm sitting on my ass doing nothing.

People don't need work, they need activities.

If I got bored I'd volunteer my time or something.

Exactly!
I think I'd work at a paintball field for a little bit. Or maybe I'd be a maintenance-man at a sorority house.

Re: F...Returning to work after vacation!

It's kind of sad that because of work I don't get to have the kind of memories I used to have. One of my favorite memories and it's so lame, is I went with some friends during a college summer to this gas station right next to the river. We got a case of beer and sat there and drank it right before the sun went down and proceeded to hop in and swim until midnight.

Tocuhing story, but no one wants to hear about the time you skinny dipped with another guy.

Work? You said work!

Anywhos the difference between volunteering is a subset of working with the additional benefit of actually getting paid for the work you're doing.

Re: F...Returning to work after vacation!

I'll always be working somehow. It's like when you retire you're just waiting to die. Hence, the reason I haven't invested in a retirement plan yet. I want that money UP FRONT while I'm young and can enjoy it. Nothing sucks more than taking one of those guided motorcoach tours of Europe when you're freakin' 80+. I want to go now, on my own terms and for an undetermined amount of time.

Nice.

And Saden, I guess I did say work, but those two examples are more of activities that I would enjoy but just happen to get paid for enjoying them, so, while they would be work, they would not be a job per se.
