Working everyday sometimes suck you into that deep abyss where you may lose your direction, sense of purpose in life and even yourself.
Wen was saying she felt that life was monotonous and she felt absolutely sick of it. And as happy as I felt about my job I felt that way too. Surprisingly. Maybe it’s the never ending emails. Meetings. A road map of never ending projects.
But you know what?
Life goes on (of course), and I was just going to tweet that having a full time job makes you never have to worry about whether you have money at the end of the month (although we’re paid mid-month), and you get your weekends and me-time, if you manage your schedule well.
It gives me extra cash to shop. It’s an open secret that I can’t get enough of clothes and shoes and everything else that girls like.
It gives me cash to buy gifts for friends and family, pay for meals, do “extra” stuff that students usually can’t afford. Like I’m planning for LASIK at the end of the year to cure my blindness (how exaggerating ). Christmas present. And that iPhone 4S. And that iPad.
It gives me satisfaction. I’m doing meaningful stuff, I’m contributing to the media industry in my own little ways. I’m helping companies get funding, be linked up, be connected and form the large, wonderful community that we’re becoming. Mediapolis phase 0. Seriously awesome.
So at the end of the day. It’s how you view your life. How you want to sketch that beautiful panoramic picture that will materialize in the next few years, or lament about the overcrowding and expensive public transport you gotta face every morning.
As always, it’s about Perspectives.
