The tools are immaterial, the resulting piece is what's most important.

It was dreadful, to think that the little time of rest you have to yourself, the little time to do your own things, have been stripped away from you, and you get NOTHING in return, but to selflessly give and give and give and give to the company. Will people even see what you have contributed? No, in their eyes, it is your obligation, it is your own effort which would perish, with no gratification or worth reinstated, whatsoever in the end.

Such is, the sadness of working life in a giant city.

Sometimes I do wonder how did I end up here.

It's not always the other party's fault. Yes, it is our obligation when we work for people but you can't expect everyone to take note of you. It depends on how much you stand out, how much shit you have to take to stand out and how much luck you have. Welcome to the real world my friend.

Rustie said...

Thanks Kelvin,
I totally second that. But being a boss of your own business can be pain in the butt sometimes but yea, at least u reap what you sow !

Yeah, its all about giving to the company and not getting anything back in return.
Lets drown our sorrow in shutter therapy !!
