How do you usually spend your whole day?

China
June 29, 2011 6:51am CST
I'm not rich enough,so I have to live my plain life.I want to travel all over the world,but in fact I haven't been to the capital of my country yet. My work can bring me only about 400 dollars each month,and my wife can earn less than $200.My son is going to go to college next year,that means we have to prepare quite a lot of money for him! So I have to work in weekdays,and help with sewing or labouring in my grove after work and on weekends.And you can imagine that you can find me just in three places: Home,workplace and my grove! How do you live your happy life?

I spend my whole day right in front of my computer as my job is online. I earn more than you do but the problem is i'm too busy to go to different places that i want to go. The last time i had a vacation was April 2010 and that was more than a year ago. I work on our family business on weekends and that's the only time i go out of the house since the office is next to our ancestral home. I need to travel every weekend for about 65 kilometers and spend my weekend there. I hope to travel abroad soon as i'm getting bored staying in the house and doing the same routine everyday.

My day is pretty much the same everyday. I wake up early in the moring, get dressed and head off to school. This is my last year of school and school is about to end so trying to be as punctual as I am, but it's not working pretty good. Anyway then I come back home, do some homework and then be on the computer till late at night. Pretty boring right??

I am online a lot of the time because I need money to get my cellphone cut back on so that I can apply to more places for work. Most of the time if I'm not online I am out with friends, but a lot of the times you'll find me online, and more often then not (now) you'll find me here on mylot. I have a cellphone that costs $45.00 a month, and I am doing what I can to get the $45.00 so that I can keep it cut on.

My idea of fun is usually just spending time at a friend's house, I'm more of a homebody so it doesn't take much to amuse me.

Well, I have my ups and downs. I would like to say that money doesn't always make people happy. I realize in your situation it might make things easier. However, it's not going to make you happy. Your life is what you make it. The path you take is the destination you chose. Your financial situation is unfortunate but I'm sure you are make do with what you have. I hope some day you won't have to work so hard but in the meantime you could strive for a job with a better income potential. That my wish for you.

Hiya six, Thats okay and I wish you lots more Holidays and Days off to rest. I have had to work many many long hours so I know what it feels like to have the energy taken out of you. Of course you always come bouncing back the next Day too. Sometimes then on my Days off I did not know how to channel the energy I had either but now I know a bit better. Five Cities they must be really beautiful then. Yes you can get tired seeing around the Cities because of all the emotion that goes with it too but afterwards when you remember it all is the best thing of all I think. Whenever I have been in London I have that feeling as well or Madrid or Barcelona as they are Cities that I love. Hope your Son is getting on well too.xxx

Yes,those big cities is rather beautiful and appealing,but I think I can not have another chance to visit them unless my son is able to help me some day.As for the big cities in the world that you mentioned above,I hope I can visit them in my dreams,lol!!!

I to live a plain live I generally do crafts and work online for part of the day and then when it cools down outside I go out and take care of yard work that needs to be done and of course there is the house work that needs to be done.I sometimes dream of places I would like to go if only I could,but maybe some day I can do other things.I wish you well and hope that you get a break for a little while.Have a great day.

As a mother with four adult kids, all of them are working now as well as my husband, everyday I was left alone at home, doing all the chores like cleaning, organizing, washing clothes and dishes, going to the market, cooking meals, looking after our 5 dogs and 2 cats. So you see, though I am alone at home everyday, I am very busy attending to all my duties as a mother and wife. I can work online on my free time and that will be mostly in the afternoon before all of them reach home. Though this has been very monotonous, I still make it a point that I love and enjoy what I'm doing.

My mom's daily routine is like as yours, one time our television bugged down and i don't want to buy her new one she said in a dramatic voice, I don't have someone in here when all of you are out...My heart was touched by her effective drama-thology :)i bought her new t.v. and i realized she is happy sleeping while tv is on, and she said our baby neighbor makes her day active that's why she is too tired to watch...hahaha LOLz But in one part of my being i want to be a house wife, i think i can do a lot more valuable things..like, making thing out of scraps, redesigning the house, cooking/inventing different dishes...making life beautiful...

Hi,Junrapmian!I can see you are really a great wife and mother in your big family,all the other members of your family as well as the 7 animals must have been extremely thankful to you.I know that chores are rather onerous,so if I'm free I often give a hand to my wife.Do take it easy!

I honestly believe when you find your dream job , it makes life more happy. Or if you can get a job that is a stepping stone toward your goal. I now see how love helps too. If you are lucky enough to have someone to love. A person who supports you then you can be so happy.

:i totally agree with you sarah..a love that compliments with your career is just so awsome..some said that love is only a distruction on your career or vice versa but when you found that one love who will support you all the way then you could do great in your career plus you can be very happy! :D

Thanks for you good advice.But I don't think I have to change my job for age,and the one who supports me is my lover.Though I'm not rich,I'll try to live more happily. Hi,08!My lover loves me so much,so though I don't love my job,I won't want to give it up.I always feel happy in my home.

Like you i am not rich and all i have is enough; enough to feed my myself, enough to give extra for my mom; enough to buy pairs of pump heels and wedges; enough to eat at places ahm fast food that were not so fast; enough to make my life and finish a day.. sometimes i think its not enough because i wanted to do some other things in my life like; taking masters degree or any equivalent education; buying house and lot for my parents and soon for my future family; buying some extra stuff like a new foam for my bed; a car for me not to commute and wait for a bus on weekends from our church 2 towns away sometimes i took a full packed bus it mean i have to stand for almost a hour to get home... so many things.. but when i read my bible saying there are more important things that those and enough is good because it is just what i need... i can always say i do survive how God make both ends meet for me, I think He put His both arms and connect both, that's why i have enough and He is enough and He is what makes enough MORE THAN ENOUGH...

My days will not be as colorful as some rich people. As usual mostly my day will be sleeping at night, wake up, going to work and spend about 9 to 10 hours in the company and then go back home then have dinner, after that to play and teach my kids, then go to sleep again. That is really like a routine job. I will only go for travel when we have save enough money. You can see how normal my life is.

How I hope my life has been colorful!But if I were a millionare,maybe the life would not be too peaceful and happy because there are too much things that cannot be foreseen,hehe.So let's just spend every minute healthily and safely,and never think of those things that we cannot reach.

Everyone will hope that their life a colorful one. Dreaming of something not possible is good, at least you have a target to achieve and if you work toward it, you will get closer to it whenever you work on it. Have a nice and colorful day!

I work at home while my husband works in an office. There are only 2 of us right now, but we've been praying for a baby. I do what housewives do. When my hubby comes home, a hot meal awaits. We hangout out night and share what has happened to our day. That's pretty much it, in a nutshell!

Hi there Oldsix! I have a fulltime job so most of my time is spent in the workplace. Of course after work I felt tired and just head home. So my days are always spent at home and at the workplace. I was just able to go out during weekends wherein I meet with friends. This is actually my 2nd job now and I have just started. The pay is not very high and just enough but I have plans ahead. I'm just 23 so I want to do best to get a promotion. I'm starting at the bottom but I believe that in the long run I'll be able to get a better position. I'm not sure how long I'll be able to do that but I'm determined to achieve it.

Well, I'm not rich either, at least for now! :) So, I have to study to be someone in life. I'm studying Medicine and my life is pretty monotone. I wake up early to go to morning classes, then, on the afternoon, I have more classes at the hospital. At night, I come back to home really tired and, usually, I just watch some TV, come to myLot and then I go to bed.

I typically play some video games, eat some food, and go back to bed. During the week, I get up, go to work, go home, and then play video games and go back to bed. Sometimes I go to a restaurant and eat there, and then go home and play video games before going to bed. Sometimes I skip eating, and just go to bed. Depends on the weather.

So good,your life is rather regular and commen.I seldom go to any restaurant unless I have a chance to make feast.I don't like skipping any meals often,it's not good for the health,I think.
