Thought 238: Not Having a Job


"[There] is such an oppressive and indecent sense of hurry, 
as if something would be lost if a twenty-three-year-old is not 'finished' yet,
does not have an answer to the 'ultimate question': 
'what job? what calling?'
– Higher types of humans, if I may say so, have no love of 'callings',
for the very reason that they know that they have been called..."

– Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols


Many people who don't have jobs don't feel good enough.

By contrast I feel too good to have a job.
