I'am finally EMPLOYED. Yes, it has been a long time coming, but I have finally bit the bullet and went into the world of 9-5pm desk jobs and menial office hours. As I have tried to live off of rackets, which didn't bode too well for me, so this change is indeed a welcome one. I realized that no matter how idealistic we are, we always need to keep in mind that we work under a certain framework, a certain reality. This does not entail that I am willing to just become a mindless robot. We change our immediate circles of influence to emit more and bigger changes. I learned something, of all places, from watching a glimpse of Oprah interviewing some person who worked as a waitress. That person said,
"If you do average great, then your dreams can become a reality."
Then it struck me. No matter how menial or normal a person's job may be, there is still room for idealism and greatness. I may not have the job of my dreams, but I plan to make it my greatest work yet. And as changes like this new opportunity keep rolling along, I keep thinking to myself that maybe the fates are starting to move my dreams closer to my grasp after all.
To all who have work, Be GREAT in it! It isn't necessarily what you wanted, but keep in mind that every little triumph in that workplace makes it worthwhile! :)
Thank you IPC! Glad to be aboard! :)
