Every Day I’m Stuck in an Office

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.

  1. (Hi Mo — Em H. here)
    Great post — I 100% relate. R keeps suggesting (already) that I find something I like more, but for now, I’m inclined to stay, follow something through and just deal until I can come up with something truly different.

    After some serious thought, I realized that fundamentally, the overall concept — the reporting to someone else, lack of control, and yes–sitting in an office ALL.DAY.LONG, WEEK.AFTER.WEEK., missing out on the outside world (I dread dark winter hours) is just…draining & depressing for certain personality types.

    Oh, and I ❤ Belle & Sebastian.
