Young Retirees (age 58)
View from work
As a teacher, I'm happy I got out of the traditional setting when I did. I am now in a "retirement job" where I get paid a fair amount and don't have any take home work.
Most of the things I like to do are sedentary except exercise, so having some kind of job is the best thing for me at this stage.
Almost all of my friends are also employed part-time. Is that true of most "young" retirees?
Wendy: I will be curious to see the answers to your question. I am also 58 and don't know what I'd do all day without work.... but I do work from home, on this website. Personally, I love new challenges, keeping my brain thinking and simply working with other people.
So what do the rest of you Young Retirees think? Please state your age if you comment below so we can keep this in perspective. Thanks!
