At the end of every day I wish I didn't live in a world where I have to dedicate ~70% of my waking hours during the week to working on crap I don't truly care about just to put a roof over my head and food on the table.

@erellsworth something I've noticed is that most of the people I know who have the skills to be doing interesting things in their spare time are expected to work so many hours that they don't have any.

@highfellow This is exactly my problem. It drives me nuts. Literally. I'm constantly complaining about it to my therapist.


@erellsworth my way of thinking about it is that there are some things that need to be done in an organized way for us to have the kind of society we have, like driving trains or working in factories, and we need to fit in with that to some extent. Then there are other things that can be done more informally according to people's interests as individual people. But the balance between the two is too far in favor of organized work. I would like to see a four day week as standard.
