I want to vent

    • Thread Starter

    I haven't had a clear direction or career path to follow, last year I went uni and did an access year but I can't afford to go back - all over facebook I see they are going out on nights out/moving into new houses.

    And i'm living with my mum age 23, I just got a job and my start date is soon but I found out the shifts can be 2AM start and 10AM finish and later in the week it will be a late start.

    I don't wanna go sleep at 5PM to go to a job I don't want but I haven't got qualifications to get anything better, plus last year at uni put me in debt with overdrafts etc

    I just feel in the dumps whilst everyone else is living it up and moving on

    It's okay -I know it's hard to hear when you're feeling like this but you'll find your feet eventually - just keep working hard and give it time.


    If it makes you feel any better I'm the same. I have to do 12 hour night shifts for NMW

    I suppose the question is, why did you accept a job that has such ridiculous hours? You are your own person. You make your own choices. If life is dumping on you, that is down to you. Make some decisions that take you where you want to go.

    Good luck!
