some days i wish i were more like the rest of you: working a standard 8-6 job, with predictable annual income of what someone with a decent post-graduate degree might earn, plus some annual bonus, company shares, benefits, plus a humane number of days of annual leave, and an appointment that is ‘permanent’ until you are being fired, etc., rather than trying to pursue this apparent path i’ve landed myself in.

because to everyone else it seems completely DAFT… this non-permanence and non-guarantee in the path towards a more stable career position… and the seemingly pointlessness in getting a higher degree.

some days, i truly wish i were more like the rest of you; living with that income stability, investing financially into your foreseeable future…

just so i won’t feel like an outcast for loving what i do.
