http://news.xinhuanet.com/forum/2009-07/19/content_11710716.htm Click external link to see full content: Excerpt: "众所周知,退休应该是50岁以上人面临的人生转折,可现在我们的周围,时常可以听到这样一种声音:真想退休。发出这种声音的,不仅有步入职场几十年的“老人”,还有刚工作两三年的“新人”。有一些正值壮年、事业有成、意气风发的年轻人,将这种声音付诸行动,辞去让普通人艳羡不已的工作,主动要求“退休”,我们称其为“新退休主义”。作为都市中为工作为生活忙碌的一员,你如何看待“新退休主义”?为什么“不想工作”、“提前退休”这类话题总是在白领人群中持续发酵?你是否也渴望急流勇退?欢迎您来新华社区与大家分享您的体验,聊聊您的想法。"

今天是22岁的最后一天。几个月前,我从沃顿商学院毕业,用文凭上“最高荣誉毕业”的标签安抚了已经年过半百的老妈,然后转头辞去了毕业后的第一份工作,跟一家很受尊敬的公司、还有150万的年薪道了别,回到了上海,加入了“刚毕业就失业”俱乐部,开始了一天三顿盒饭的新生活,中间许多精彩剧情暂时略过。(click title to continue)
