That loathesome thing you do in order to feed your children / thing under the bed.

I've been at my job for a little over 7 months now. I went straight out of college to starting my job the next month. When I accepted this position I thought it was the greatest thing ever. I had a job before I even graduated and the pay was great! When I say great I mean there is no other place that would pay me this much starting off. The benefits pay 100% everything so how could I give up this offer? Well after 7 months of being here I absolutely hate it. The people who work for this company are mostly women who are skinny, blonde, and don't have much common sense. I feel like I am in high school all over again. I understand people have their problems but to share every single detail to your co-workers is just too much. This job isn't even in my field of study. To make matters worse...I am one of two people in my entire office with a college degree. Yeah, I went to college for 3 1/2 years to be working somewhere where I didn't need a degree. The hard part is...Do I look for another job and be happy to get up and go to work everyday or do I stay and hate what I am doing but get paid good money?

Rook, Shaman of the IT department,

save as much as you can and start looking for another job. See if you can move up in this job.

Write a list of what would make THIS job more ideal such that you would stay AND be happy. Sometimes if you put it down in words you can make it happen.
