Definitely made me question my status in life and all of that. I enjoy nature, but I'm not opposed to the lifestyle I currently have (ridin' dat desk) for the time being. I take a 45 min train where I generally don't do anything productive but I try to get most of my social networky shit out of the way by checking facebook and instagram mostly (hey, those filters are nice...) and reading some blogs, which I guess is somewhat productive. On the ride back I do one of two things, sleep or read... or play games on my phone. Mostly I read though.
My job involves writing and researching, so I do that most of the day. My office is very quiet, but a group of us like to jump on gchat and group chat most of the day which makes the workday seem somewhat sociable, we also get together to eat and take outside breaks every now and then.
I stand half the day (for the OP, is this something you could do?) usually when I walk in till around 1pm when I eat lunch. Sometimes though, I just sit all day, but I do make an effort to stand up most of the time.
My job also has the perk that I can work from home, they have a lot of remote workers in other states so I take advantage of that once or sometimes twice a week. If you're able to commute in they prefer people do that, so I don't like to take advantage and interestingly, working from home is not as enjoyable as it may sound so I like to keep it to one to two days a week max. Those days are the ones where I get in longer home-based workouts or try to cook bigger meals since I have extra time.
The job I had when I first went primal though is a different story. I was basically chained to my desk and hated the work, so yeah I wanted to quit, but only because the job sucked.
Lastly, while grok certainly didn't have to do a lot of the shit we "have" to do, I would never want to live grok's life. I enjoy how our lives are now to a certain degree, though I think we could have stopped getting so technologically advanced a long time ago. Part of me thinks this is exactly what we as humans are supposed to do though, slowly take over everything until we die and then the earth will reclaim the world once again... and then we'll evolve and do it all over again. I used to get down about the way the world is going and the lives we "have" to live, but if you notice, this has been in motion for a long long looong time which leads me to believe that it's really just the natural order of things.
I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.
