Don't Wanna Wake Up on Monday and Work?

I have been miserable at my job - or at any job. I am paid just above minimum wage, I work sometimes long into the night (almost 1:00 in the morning, and for normal people, that is unreasonable) and it is not always exactly EASY. Washing dishes, taking out garbage, cleaning a greasy work-place, never sitting to rest or getting a break for eight hours.
So, I did a Google search to see if there would be any ways to mentally distance myself from reality and pretend that I do not exist in order to dim the hatred and frustration that is endless, from the moment I awaken until I go home.
I noticed - and this is the main point of my entry - that most of the pages said something akin to, "Hate going to work on Mondays?"
What is THAT supposed to mean?
I thought that Mondays are the number 1 day that no one on earth likes going to work.
Is that question supposed to be important? They might as well ask, "Do you hate burning your finger on a stove, falling over while trying to impress a girl, or listening to the same noxious music every hour of work?"
It is just as sensible.
No, to be honest, it is not Mondays that I hate. It is every single day that I must trudge out of bed and prepare to go to the only place I can imagine that I do not want to go.
I would rather go to SCHOOL than to work.
This is what I tried to tell the people at my last job: Work is a stupid concept, because it accomplishes NOTHING worthwhile most of the time (Great, we allowed another fatty to eat his greased-up chicken at an exorbitant price; we should receive a medal) and the pay is laughably low.
I work, generally, three times a week, and get less than three hundred (sometimes less than two hundred) dollars in two weeks.
I'm already miserable on the days I do work.
If I was working EVERY day, I would get around five-hundred dollars. . . in two weeks. Working EVERY day.
It's like all of the money in this economy is going to athletes and movie stars.
And according to every website on the internet, don't even try to be a writer if you want to sustain your livelihood, because you'll have to be a writer, AND a fast-food employee.
Life does not cater to those who want it to be easy, nor does it make it easy for those who would like to accomplish something worthwhile, and especially not for people who want to do what they love.
Man, I hate this life. Hate it.
