People who worry about having things to do when they retire baffle me. Just pick a hobby!

Thumbs up

Put me in the ďI love my job and I love workingĒ portion of this thread.

Iíve been working as a Union Inside Wireman Electrician for roughly 30 years.
Itís hard work sometimes and there are often days that I wish I wasnít working, but overall I love my job.

To look back on the projects Iíve worked on with pride is priceless to me.
Including: Home Depot Center, Staples Center, Dodger Stadium, Angel Stadium, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Creative Artists Agency, Hollywood & Highland, Nokia Theater, SoFi Stadium, plus dozens of schools of various levels.
Some of the names of these buildings have since changed, but ďThe Memory RemainsĒ.

You only live once on this overpopulated spheroid floating through space. Enjoy it and make a difference.

Hobbies cost money. When you retire, income doesnít come in like it used to. Thatís what my parents are facing right now, which is why they just stay home and do nothing.

I can buy a jigsaw puzzle for $20. A book of sudoku puzzles for $10. You know retirement is coming. Plan for it.

When retired, you will be free 24/7 and I doubt anyone would want to do a jigsaw or sudoku puzzle all day everyday. I agree, people should plan for retirement, but it's not that simple as you will have A LOT of free time to plan for and limited money to spend. And this is why some people opt to go back to work.

What do you do for fun? What you mentioned sounds like a trap. You worry about having enough for retirement and avoid spending money now and then when you retire you will worry about having enough money for retirement and do what your parents do and just stay home all day.

Maybe cutting loose is not your thing but it also sounds like you are not happy just hanging around. That's quite a pickle!

What Hitman said all sounds great.... movies, puzzles and video games. Aside from the fact that video games are crazy expensive (and that's why I stopped playing them when I was in college), those kind of hobbies don't really get you out of the house. I want to go out and do something. But anything you do outside, other than taking a walk (which is boring), requires you to spend money.

When I retire, I'll hardly ever leave the house!!!! I'm a home body. If you're not and you want to do things then you talk to an investor and make a plan to put money away so that you can do the things that you want to do while you're still working.

I cannot wait to retire. More time to watch all the movies I own that I've never seen. I cannot relate to people who say they'll work until they die.. or that work keeps them busy. I can find PLENTY of things to keep me busy outside the workplace.

Nope, I stopped working full time. I work 80% right now, that's about 30 hours per week and it makes life so much more enjoyable.

The ironic thing is that my dad used love watching hockey and racing when he was younger and still working. Now that he's retired, he cancelled the cable TV due to it's ever increasing rates. So he just sits at home and tags along with my mom. And that's why my mom is losing her sanity.

Why someone would give up watching TV when they are retired is beyond me!

I had an interview last week for the Assistant Shift Manager on my shift . I am trying to make more money yada yada yada. One question I was asked was where do you see yourself in 5 years? I said 5 years? I am not even thinking of next year. I am going day to day after almost dying a couple of years ago with heart problems etc.

Retirement for me is at least 15 years down the road and so many things can change in just a few months. Right now I don't even see retirement as an option. I may work until I die or become so disabled they put me in a veterans home.

Right now when I take a week plus off I don't really do anything but watch movies and cook a little more. I get so bored I cant wait to get back to work. Hobbies? I have done a lot of different things but became bored with them. I could see me going to the local race tracks again though.

I feel like I live on the spur of the moment rather than plan. I use to plan things then poof things didn't work out. The only plans I have are to spend time with my family around the holidays every year.

What was I talking about? Retirement? Not even a light at the end of the tunnel the size of a pin hole. But that is just me.

One question I hate being asked during an interview is "What is your biggest weakness?" What are you suppose to say without looking bad?

And I always heard that saying "I work too hard" is the most typical and worst answer you can give. I've always been told that it's ok to say something negative, but then use that negative and let them know about how it helped you in a positive way.

I said something along the lines of I can always learn more leadership skills even though I have been in a leader type role for a few years now and also there is one section of my plant that I work I dont know how to run and I need to learn it to be more rounded.

An advantage I have is I have 8 years here and this is just an internal application. I have basically kind of been in charge when the supervisor is gone already but I am waiting for them to interview someone from another plant who isnt a leader in their current role. I dont know how it will work out but I think I am the favorite since I already help the current supervisor and have trained her in certain functions of things she didnt know when she took over.

One disadvantage is we butted heads alot when she took over but since then we have a decent working relationship. Just yesterday I helped her figure something out with some inventory issues she was having a problem with. I hope that goes a little way as opposed to someone who knows nothing about our plant we work in.

If it happens great. If not I am very happy with where I am at.

At just shy of 64 years old I surprised myself by taking on a new job. At my old job I was ready to just ride the wave to retirement in 3 - 4 years. Problems with the old place caused me to be open to change. Promises of advancement never realized. Highly toxic employee we couldn't fire because she was a lesbian and threatened to sue us. Anyone who filed with HR she immediately filed a counter claim. Worthless VP who only made bad decisions. New CRM program promised over a year ago.

I was offered a job which was much harder, more hours. But I would now take home more than I was grossing. My expenses were reimbursed instead of taken care of myself. Company car instead of my own. We weighed the extra hours, extra work and money versus easy street and less money I was used to. I took the job but the next 3 - 4 years I'll pick up anywhere $100,000 to $200,000 depending on my commissions, plus the boost in social security. Less golf but pay the mortgage off before I retire.

Sometimes you trade in one dysfunction for another. Same broken toy, different box. So far, very hard but the checks are good.

You're in Manhattan, right? Get into photography, it'll get you outside, and there's more than a lifetime's worth of pics to take there.

For the past three and a half years, I have been juggling two jobs. It's been a challenge, but getting four pay checks a month is nice and gives me a lot of financial freedom. Technically, I should work for another 15-17 years and retire, but both my grandparents and my father who were both fairly wealthy gave me nice inheritances. My financial advisor told me back in March that I could retire now if I wish. Not sure what to do, you can travel only so much. As of now, I plan on working until the end of December 2023, then I'll see what I want to do.

It sounds like you're around 50 and don't necessarily enjoy your current work. Since money is not your main concern, if you want to work try doing something that you enjoy. Alternatively, if you really don't need the funds try retirement for a while and see how you like that.
