Why is it so long? When and why did 8 hours/day become the
standard for full-time employment? It's too long. Spend half your
day working, just so you can live the other half (16 hour days;
I'm not couting the 8 hours of sleep we all need). You have no
time left to better yourself.
Jeez, and that's not even including the time it takes to commute
to and from work, that's probably another 2 hours/day; assuming
you even have a car. If you don't, you have to spend even more
time commuting because the bus schedules never seem to
coincide with your work schedule.
It's crazy, man...
