The problem with the 8-hour workday for single people

Posted on: January 23, 2013


The 8 hour workday for single people…now what?

My four years of college were mainly spent balancing classes, homework, friendships and the 1-2 jobs I always held down. Life after college consisted of 10-12 hour days, fighting to get to the right salary, the right place in my career and the right…well…everything. Now 2 years after graduation, I’ve gone from working 70 hours a week to 40, and that’s where the problem comes in.

I’m not complaining, just stating a fact. The 40 hours work week for singles without hobbies is easy. Almost too easy. My life now consists of working out, eating healthy, playing volleyball, going out every single night, a bedtime of midnight…if that and, well, of course the 8 hours of week which seem like a breeze now. Working out only increases all this extra energy, I could go for days!
With all the extra time it makes sense to start a part-time job for fun, go back to school and travel more.

So what does this generation do with all the extra time and energy? Let’s face it, if a relationship, getting married and having a family is not your key focus, what should be?
