Do you ever feel like your job is making your brain cells die?

I feel like I was so much smarter and sharper when I graduated from college. I am trying to get out of this administrative job I've had for years. It feels like the mindless work has diminished my brain power so much so that I can't figure out ways to get out of this job. Do you ever feel like this?

Absolutely. It seems that employers are more interested in doers over thinkers. If you want a job that values you for your mind, go back to school and get an advanced degree.

Um...nope. Never had a job for that long...longest being like not even two weeks. Ha. But. Its not that your intelligence has diminished, your brain is working at a lower level than its used to. If you are really having problems, find a job that suits what you like doing. Thinking I suppose! :)
