I Want Out Of This Mess

I just want to open my own gift shop and work there for awhile. You know, a cute little place, with cute little gifts. I can accessorize my store and merchandise all the fun gifty stuff. I can sit there and read a book bertween customers. Maybe do some gift wrapping and order more cute, gifty stuff from catalogs. How can I make that happen? That sounds like the life to me. I hate working in this office environment where there is not a common bond, a common goal, a want or need to work together to be successful. I hate power struggles. I don't see the point. I can't see eye to eye on that. I thought the point of being in business was to work toward success for the company. The point is not to work toward making sure you are the star of the show, is it? I want to cry and leave and walk away and never return. I want to go to a job every day where the stress is more about ordering more cute, gifty items. I really do not like my job. I don't like my boss and the way she is not a boss. I don't like any of this right now. I hate it actually. It's so depressing in so many ways. I'm sorry. I had to vent. If you hear about ways to open a cute, gifty store please send ideas my way.
