You know what's worse? Getting to your deathbed and knowing you hated your job and work life that much that you want to burn the place down each day.
Well that hating part might have been a slight exaggeration.. I like my job on some days; when I work alone on my independent project, and some days I don't like it too much; when I have to communicate more with others. It's just somehow amazingly tiresome at my workplace to run all your ideas through someone you don't see so competent.
As to switching jobs or going solo, I am kind of in a situation where half of my work is my dream and half of it not so much. If I went on to pursue my dream as an independent again, I wouldn't get to that situation very quickly if ever, I think.
Didn't you switch from audio engineering or something (which I assume was your "dream") to something else you do now?

Yeah, but aren't you a programmer? You probably work with a battery farm of Lagrangians.
I get on well with the people in my new job. I wouldn't say I'm chasing my dream in this career or anything like that, but I definitely have a good laugh at work, which means I don't dread going there every morning. Often, the people you're working with and vibe of the workplace is as important to job satisfaction as the nature of the work itself.
I don't want to make friends of my coworkers because I get to know them enough at work. If their besserwisserism or lagrangianism is part of their free time personality too, I don't want to have another me as a friend of mine. That and the fact that I would probably ruin either the work side or the friend side of the relationship somehow, affecting the other one. All this doesn't mean I don't get along with them on some level. Things could be better though.
The best workdays are the remote ones, when I work from home with just my girlfriend and our cat. If that's because of the personalities at the workplace or just me, I haven't figured out yet.
