Its been a year without a job and I still miss my old office mates and office and my desk that I occupy for the last four years of my short working career. How about you? Do you miss you job life? How I wish I can bring back memories. The fun and stress that I get in the office..lols.

hello bulastika, its almost 5 years since i resigned in my last job coz i have to be with my husband in his work assignment & i am no longer allowed to work. and even if its already that long, i still miss my work. my everyday life, rushing to the office, doing my job assignments in the office, attending our seminars, talking & serving our clients...i just miss it, i miss everything even the bad & stressful days! haha i miss my office mates & my boss even if sometimes they irritates me... and of course i miss receiving my salary & the christmas gifts & bonuses! everything! but i know, that i can't go back to that time anymore, what i just can do now is to reminisce those days and smile on it. no room for regrets for i know that i do have better life now being able to relax at home, serving & taking care of my husband while doing our duty... and of course i don't have a boss now & i am my own boss...

Wow. What is his job that its so sound complicated? Its okay if you don't want to share. I'm just wondering that's all. I think it more that you need to have a job because you don't have a child to take care for. And its not only for money also for social life. I mean you studied from elementary to college and end up as a plain house wife? I'm sorry if its sound that I'm intruding your life. Its just may opinion. .. Yeah its hard to have a provider for a start its hard to ask for money. Its better if you have your own to speak with. ..

hehe, no worries my friend, i am used to hearing those things! haha actually most of my relatives except my parents reacts that way...as in "what? you work hard to finish your studies & just by that, you stop working? sayang naman!" but again, with me, its more of a duty than a work...i know you will understand after i tell you the nature of my husband's work...hehe but i will not put it here for i want to remain it a bit 'confidential'? hehe and besides i know that people will be shocked to know...hehe coz it don't fits to my personality yup, very true! its difficult to spend the money that's not earned by us...

Yeah. that why I resign. Its better to be happy without money that to be stress because of money..But now I realized having no money is also stressful..lols. How I wish I can have both ways. Having money and still have happy living.

It's true. You get to miss it because it was part of your past, but you have to move on and enjoy the one you are having now. You may miss the moments now, but remember how you shrivel when you were having those stress. Keep looking forward and don't look back for so long because it will distract you from the NOW!

It does not distract me at all. I cherish every moment that happen to me bad or good memories but it does not mean it distract me. Why I will be distracted? .. Maybe its depend on a person. Some person just want to run away with bad memories that they rather bury them deep in there heart and mind and forget about it.

I miss my old job too. Or, well, I can't say it's a very old job, because I stopped doing it only a month ago. I was working as a night guard on the construction site. That job was quite easy, I didn't had to do anything hard but patrol around the site. I spent most of the time at my booth, where I had a TV. My friends were also visiting me quite often, so I didn't had to worry about boredom. I also didn't have to work every day, I had three shifts per week, so it was kind of nice and loose schedule. Unfortunately, the construction got done and nothing was left to guard there. I still sometimes see in my dreams myself sitting in my booth, watching TV and having snacks.

Hi there, I too is without a job for almost a year now. I miss my old job, the one before being jobless and the very first one. The two jobs were almost the same but in a different environment and different people. I miss the people in my first job but I did not miss the people in my last job LOL except for one because we still see each other sometimes and talk about being jobless. I had a job too which I did not miss anybody or the job or the office. Glad I got out of it. Memories are plentiful whether in memory only in our heads or through pictures but we have to move on with our lives.

Me too at first but after a year without a job it all turns from bad to worse. It stressful without a job much stressful when I have work. In work if your stress after two weeks you get paid. If you have no job your stress and you have no money. But what ever happens. I'm still happy that I resign.
