Tired of Not Working 厌倦了没有工作 ...



When I had my full time employment before 40, 
as somewhat of a workaholic;
there are many times I did 
felt tired of working
...
I like to think of myself now at 48, after 8 years 
of freelance teaching and consulting
as a semi-retired person
when sometimes I don't have any assignments 
for stretch of 2-3 weeks, 
and those short non-working times I did
felt tired of not working
...

A typical ordinary peoples coffee shop ...

We are always seeking what we do not have!

I agree with Michelle. My mother is 73 and is longing for a job.

As I will retire on December, this year, I find interesting your point of view, Wong. I never thought that doing nothing will be tiring because I have a lot of plans for my first months/years of retirement. Well, I will still teach by hours, but there will be at most 8 hours/week. During the rest of the time I'll do everything I haven't done when I was employed, and I wanted to!
