    I'm now on about my 3rd or 4th career, and I'm doing the job I always wanted: Novelist! Pay isn't great, but I love the work. Besides I'm retired from other kinds of work. My most recent "Armageddon's Disciples" is on Amazon. Link below leads to the Kindle version, and a few opening chapters. Paperback and hardcover editions are also available.:

    The question reminded me of a saying that my dear old Mom had. Her ideal job would be from 1pm to 2pm with an hours lunch break .

    Are the people there THAT stupid that they can’t see this??..The religion asks for educated professionals - but yet tells the average JW they shouldn’t get higher education. In other words, if YOUR education (that you paid for) can benefit the religion - that’s okay. But, if it’s for you to make your life better - that’s not okay. You should live in poverty and starve.


    Very interesting reading about your work history! Like you, I’m retired and don’t want a job. I also like writing and could be a critic, but in this world it’s too dangerous. I could end up dead..In my fantasy though, I might see me either making or repairing jewelry or restoring things like artwork. No stress though and nobody on top of me.

    It finally clicked!

    Those jws who constantly berated you for working full time were just imitating their leaders. It all makes sense.

    Those older jws that were retired and getting a pension were only doing what the leaders of the WT are doing. Criticizing jws who work full time and don't pioneer.

    Yeah, the hypocrisy in the religion is so thick you can choke on it!

    I especially despise those older JWs..Most have gone to their graves after living a cushy life and are not even around to help the broke pioneer Baby Boomers they misled who can’t even retire!!!…Imagine if I had caved in to the pressure everybody else fell for?…I’d be so screwed today it wouldn’t be funny!

    There’s no accountability in that religion and you have people there suffering today because of faulty doctrines and peer pressure to be accepted. I have No regrets now that I was the ‘low hour publisher’ back then subjected to shunning and criticism. Glad I’m nowhere near it anymore!
