The title of this sounds quite hilarious. I’ve been working for the last 28 days without one day off, and been working for a year in a job I genuinely dislike. It wouldn’t be a life choice and it wouldn’t be something I’d opt to go back to. I’m working in a call centre for a large fashion company (H&M) for one more month to get the rest of my money together to study my Masters in Environmental design at Glasgow School of Art. It really can’t come fast enough. I have a headache as I write this from tiredness because my mind has been forced to work in a way it really would rather not work. It’s exhausted.
Answering repetitive calls and answering repetitive emails numbs your mind. You don’t have to think anymore. Your brain is becoming trained to become lazy and stay on a level where nothing is a challenge. It’s not the greatest way to spend a year but I’m so glad I’m aware of this so I don’t get sucked into that life. I’d be a very unhappy person ha! My brain is screaming at me…there’s more than this. Art school will give you those very opportunities next month.
