As I was riding my bike to work this morning and avoiding the damage left from the last week’s storms (debris, flooding, etc…yikes!), I found myself tuning in to the lyrics of a Belle & Sebastian song, called Write About Love. The words go like this:
I hate my job/
I’m working way too much/
Every day I’m stuck in an office/
Yup, that pretty much sums it up. Ugh. I shouldn’t be that bleak, but the truth is, I’ve definitely past the honeymoon phase of my new job, and here I am, with yet another office job. Stuck behind a computer and a desk, in an office that has no windows and a plethora of artificial light.
It drains me. But I shouldn’t complain. I have a job. The people here are great. It’s not the job itself that bugs me, it’s the kind of work that I do. I desperately want to break the cycle and stop working office jobs. But then, what do I do? Open a fabric store (yes, please)? With what money? Hike/run/bike/swim for a living (yes, please)? With what sponsorships?
Anyway, I digress…
On a more positive note, if you haven’ t yet listened to Belle & Sebastian’s album that came out last year, you should check it out. It’s called Write About Love. I love their lyrics and peppiness. Very cheeky.
