If you work a 9-5, are broke and coming home every night to play video games, you'll stay broke.

Every night you should be coming home and selling something, creating something, learning something, etc.

You should be constantly leveling yourself up.

Video games wont do that.

Sounds like a survival game would suit those needs. You can sell stuff, create items, and learn new recipes.

Same could be said for drinking. Mix that with games and you're on top of the world!

9-5 jobs are for people with kids at home. If you're only working 40 hours a week and you DON'T have a family, get a part time job. Most people watch three freaking hours of TV per day. 21 hours per week. I don't watch any, and have a 20 hour/week par time job. You watch TV, I make an extra $600/week.

Yeah this... balance in all things. I have a 9-5 I hate, but spend 3-6months (usually winter) studying for a new certification to keep my skills current. The other half of the year I come home, relax, see friends, or go the gym.

America is way too obsessed with "productivity" and "hustle" and "being useful"... all comes down to "why aren't you generating money for this country?!" The price of housing, education and health care all continue to rise while wages stay the same... and America's answer is "just work harder... work more often... don't worry about your sanity".

Video games are all I have to look forward to anymore, even if the only ones I can play right now are mobile ones due to being homeless.

Might as well ask me to jump into incoming traffic, there wouldn't be much point in living at that point without my main hobby.

It's just because dollars are a convenient way of quantitatively measuring your 'utility' or 'benefit' from the time - i.e. did you make the most of your day. If there was a way to measure all those other things with a nice single number then I'm sure more priority would be given to other uses of time.

For me? I like to be deliberate and make the most of my time. I like objectives/goals whether it be achieve XX at work, spend time with kid, tidy up house, etc... not all of it is paid, but it's deliberately productive. I also set time aside for relaxation to ensure I don't burn out and that can be productive even if it looks like I'm just lazing on the couch watching Netflix.

I'd take up a part time job at 30 dollars an hour for sure.

If they are enjoying their time playing video games then they are not wasting their time.

But if those people who grind their lives away on mmorpgs or mobile games where u click on buildings and have to wait out a timer for them to upgrade then those people are wasting their lives. Because those games are designed that way to entice people to buy boosts and speed ups.

Naw guys....nothing feels better than busting your ass all day and coming home to someone special to relax with. So much better than being a lazy fk sitting at home with her all day being unproductive. Time apart really does bring you closer. Requires a very special girl that truly loves you, but that's well worth the hunt too.

I think it's healthy for both people in the relationship to have work/things to do. That's when you really appreciate the limited time you get together.

My wife and I both have interests outside each other's own hobbies/entertainment. So yeah I'll agree it's important for both of us to work, enjoy the things we did before knowing each other and then enjoying time together as well.

You have a part time job that pays 30 dollars an hour (am I doing that math correctly?)?!

Any way, I dont get the obsession with work.

I dont think most people work as much or as hard as they say, cause I think there would be far fewer losers in America if they did.
