Why do I keep getting bored with my jobs?
I get bored with jobs very easily. I'm bored within six months. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Interactive Advertising. I live in a small rural area of Vermont. Current position: Employment Specialist (Human Services). Previous positions: Director, Product Development for a website; Lease Analyst (land services); & Transcription. I'm fed up with the fact that I paid just over $50,000 for a degree to only make $28K or less a year. I don't like not being able to live simply, I hate living pay check to pay check and day to day. I hate being bored with the work I do. It isn't that there isn't enough work to keep me occupied, it's that the work is boring, mundane, and I find myself wondering why the job even exists and what the point is. My interests are varied and wide. I'm super creative and LOVE stories/books/movies. I don't know what kind of job would be best for me, just that it would have to be something I could never get bored with. Any ideas? Why do I keep getting bored? How can I get over it? By the way, I do not hesistate to report answers as spam. This is a serious question.

At least you are gaining experience, and hopefully you can move up in your field once the economy gets better. You could... More
