    I have done a number of jobs that I hated with a passion, I witnessed my parents working their arses off in jobs they hated this formed an idea of a future I would like. I was lucky that a passion I have turned into a job. and I mean a huge amount of luck.

    I have been lucky to have worked for myself most of my days ( retired now) and also went through a few jobs i hated before making that decision. Still do a bit now and again but mostly because i love doing it rather then the money.

    Find something that you love to do and you'll never work a day in your life.

    Yeah, sounds so cliche but so true.

    Plug me and photography into that equation. Wake up every day excited to take or make (there's a difference) images that I haven't created yet. And I'm no kid, just nicely into my '60s and still bouncing. My inspirations in this business worked well into their 80s.

    Sounds great.

    My neighbour has a similar to-die-for job which has me well jealous. His job is to walk nature trails and report if they are in good condition or not.

    I have a digital SLR staring at me from the shelf for the last couple of years. It's an oldish one but takes great pics even on fully automatic. I was determined to learn how to use it properly during lockdown but it is still staring, taunting me. Any tips how to get started?

    just got turned down for the two internal roles i had high hopes for. Become quite clear it's a "who you know" kinda process now...

    Have often thought about changing jobs / careers and doing something i WANT to do, or would actually enjoy. Am 36 so plenty of time, unfortunately i don't think i'll find anything that will pay nearly as well as what i earn now. My parents struggled a lot growing up, we never took holidays etc, so feel like i will be a slave to the system but at least the kids wont have to necessarily.

    It's easy to get "trapped" by your own competence and experience, I've never particularly liked my job, but it pays well and I'm good at it. If I shifted to something I'd enjoy it would have a negative impact on my family's quality of life.

    The flip side of that is that I am aware how lazy and resistant to duty I am, I'm likely to resent anything I do if it's where the money comes from.

    @greatwhitenorf will obviously have more experienced advice but I found just getting your hands on the camera and playing with it is the best way. YouTube also has some fantastic free tutorials to get you started and then when you have more experience, into more detailed styles of shooting. Udemay also do some good courses but for me, it’s the hands-on approach that is always the winner.

    I was the same and thought I'd struggle to earn what I do now but there are loads of jobs out there paying the same if not more !!

    Lie back, take off your trousers and your pants and try to take a picture of your pee-pee hole really close up and post it on one of the threads on Randomination pretending it is about some other topic e.g. New black hole discovered or Cave exploration in Indonesia and we'll try to spot the fake story.

    If that is a come-on then I'm flattered I suppose, but if not, well ...weird.

    What do you do? You'd be surprised if you look around what else might be available that share similar skills. I'd love to do something I really enjoy but took a temo job for 6 months after uni and been in the same area ever since.

    I be taking voluntary redundancy end of the month, didn't dislike my job, but felt everyone else was moving on and i was standing still, pay was absolute brick, and my pay off compared to some people on here is a big laugh lol but paid the bills etc but the pluses,only a 10 minute stroll across a park, beautiful scenery etc, being 55 could be last shot in doing something else. One idea was if i bought a season ticket next year, move up to London for a couple of years just for the fun off it, enjoy a bit culture, don't mind a bit of hussle and bustle and what city living be like . But with covid and jobs not sure what that will mean, was going to travel ,Australia for the Ashes but they've banned visitors till Jan 2021 at the moment.

    We'll see....

    Decided to tidy my wardrobe today and found some change in the pocket of the jacket I wore last time I was at the pub.

    RIP. Coronavirus 2020
    Worked a shift at work, one of the girls from the office told me she would not have the vaccine as no one really knows what's in it, she gets filler in her lips and cheeks though.

    Got a real soft spot for some of them but some others are fcuking idiots.

    Nice!
    I'll be a little cheeky and promote myself. I've got some in a similar genre on my mixcloud
