Just to clarify, I was flipsiding my above point
Oh

I guess jumped the gun a little. I presume you said "get real" or something similar. In which case, I'm happy to agree with your flipside!

It is lazy to only work 3 days a week, it just is. It has nothing to do with being "career oriented".
The 5 day working week isn't typical across the globe/time. Certain societies - think Australian aborigines around first contact - would balk at the idea of even a three day week because working in such a confined, set manner was just so alien to them seeing as they only did the bare minimum of work to survive (were they lazy?). It's all relative and very much a product of our time/culture/etc. your comment suggests you've internalised your culture's values very deeply. Not saying that's positive or negative - just worth a mention.

With no dis-respect to the OP, the only work that provides that kind of income and is realistic is working in the Adult entertainment or drug industries whilst meeting your specifications.
But definitely not a druggy prostitute. Crack whore is not where the cash is at! :mmm:

Yeah well, we live in the UK, where the 5 day working week, 9-5 is standard. Whether you like it or not.

In terms of global history, we have agriculture to blame! We only started working longer hours when we started farming. Before then, people would catch and eat a fish then draw on caves all day!

You want a step-by-step?
In short: finish studying physics degree, graduate entry medicine, armed forces doc, specialise in space medicine after service, apply to space agency as a mission specialist (doctor)

I'm sure someone else has suggested it already, but freelance journalist?

I think expecting >£20k for only working three days a week is somewhat optimistic, personally.

So I've been through loads of career ideas and to be honest none of them suit me. I'm just going to bullet point what I want and see if anyone has any suggestions, because I don't like not having any idea


  1. Part time. I don't want to work more than 3 days a week.
  2. People focused. I'm a people person. I HATE analytical/stats/data/academia.
  3. I'm not bothered about advancing/getting a "top job' or whatever. As long as it pays more than £20k a year, I'm fine
  4. Creative. Preferably. Again I'm more creative than academic.
  5. FUN. If I get bored I'll quit. I have the attention span of a kitten.
  6. Flexible. I don't do well with rules that aren't flexible.


I honestly don't know what I want to do :dontknow: If people could just give me some ideas because I don't even know where to look?
Don't even bother. The economy is in a ****ty state. You will be lucky if you find something. Let alone something decent. #realitycheck

Gotta get rid of one of those two. And talk to career advisor at your university.

ver ****ty life and unsteady supply of food. It is very easy for you to die if you end up in a place where there is no food. Also, winter. You will probably not make it through many winters.

I was being facetious

You are right, though. Also, farming means 1 member of the community can do that job which frees up others to do other things!

There is a reason why farmers had so much sex (and so many kids). It was not enough with one person working.

Sorry. Let me try again. One family can support a community -or at least not every member has to farm for food like every member would probably have to catch it's own fish.

I'm sure you understand what I meant

Not if she has a partner who she lives with. Nothing wrong with a partner in a relationship not wanting to work full time and being the main income supplier.
What happens when this partner possibly (but likely) decides to leave?

You sound like a painfully boring, uncreative, corporate drone. Enjoy the rat race.

this pic sums up OP

OP will realize in her 30s that all her anti rat race nonsense AKA laziness, has fcked her over and now she's much less happy than if she'd just put the work in
