12012 Employment misery
I've been stuck in the same job nearly six years. I'm pretty good at what I do but the work is unerringly bland without much in the way of deviation. This has inevitably caused me to become complacent but in a way that stymies any satisfaction I once found in a job well done.

Everybody tells me my employer doesn't know my worth but I just can't find myself to apply anywhere else. I'm probably just lazy but it's like I can't muster any motivation or even excitement at the prospect of even sorting my CV out to apply for something new even though it would inevitably be better in pretty much every respect.

Am I depressed? If so, does that make most of the working / lower-middle class workers I know depressed? How can you break the cycle?

Sorry for the spam. Originally posted this in /b/ like a daft sod.

well you don't sound as miserable as I am but it seems you're on the right track.

What sector do you work in? Jumping at any in house training they have available could be fulfilling, especially if it comes with extra responsibility afterwards. Without knowing what you do vs what you fantasise about doing, all I can really say is be pro-active. If you think you're in a rut it's not going to get better through meds and therapy will just tell you to be pro-active. Assertiveness training, things in that vein, could help you massively to improve your standing in the work place.

My job title is hopelessly vague to the point I'd certainly have to fabricate a new one on my CV.

I do front-end web design / user experience design and things of that ilk.

UX is a very lucrative/booming area - what kind of design do you do? Can you code? There is lots of work out there in this area, it is very trendy.

I have a good friend who was in there for years. He absolutely loved it, made loads of money, and the way you get time off in huge chunks of the calendar is appealing too.

Is there much bumming? I'm not interested if there's no bumming.

There's lots of fucking in general apparently, now that plenty of birds work on the ships too. I'm sure there's more than enough bumming, but it might not be the most popular mode of fucking these days.
