I told myself in university that I’d never work a soulless 9-5 job, however here I am.
Honestly, nothing in life turned out how I thought it would.
I’m 30 years of age currently plus nowhere closer to achieving my dreams than I was when I was only 18. And If I had to be fully truthful with myself, I don’t think I ever will. I told myself that I basically need to get used to working in this dead end work until I will be able to afford to go back to university plus get a better degree. It’s not all bad though to be honest, since I recently got a raise at work when my productivity improved substantially. I was feeling more comfortable at my desk everyday suddenly, plus I didn’t feel so distracted. Eventually I found out that management had completely replaced the antiquated heating plus cooling machine one particular weekend while pretty much everyone was at home. I was amazed that something as self-explanatory as upgrading the air conditioner machine could have such a large effect on my work productivity. At the same time, it makes sense—if you totally feel comfortable, you’re less likely to fidget plus distract yourself. With enjoyable indoor air, I can easily remain focused for quite a few hours at a time without my brain meandering off. If I had to make a request, I’d ask for much nicer chairs too. With enough improvements in the workplace, my attitude on my work plus my current place in life might change for the better. It doesn’t even feel as soulless when I can make a fair living in climate controlled comfort each day.
