Corporate jungle? Maybe not for me

I’m not pretty sure what your attitude is however for myself, 9-to-5 office job is quite frankly not my cup of tea. I ended up at one point of time, dwelling under such deception. I still remember vividly how each time I am out on the road and run into someone who was smartly dressed up in business suits and thought they were cool. That prompted my determination to ascend the corporate ladder and end up like them some day.

How things have changed

Now it is two year after my college graduation and things are not quite the same as they used to seem to me. Management and business employment are quite simply not as beautiful as I depicted them to be. Don’t be mistaken.


It isn’t actually that I didn’t manage to end up in big conglomerates and truth be told, I get myself into among the many world’s most respected firms. Sadly guess what, the two years that I spent working there was marked with agony and it was difficult for me to force myself to cling even until six pm and that was the first time I told myself that it was most likely best to move on.

You may call me unpremeditated, but as much as I can see, I have tried speaking to my friends who confer at about the same time as I am. Believe it or not, more than half of whom I talked to were in the similar situation or worse than me. I ought to tell you that money isn’t actually the point here. As most of us were employed in basically profitable corporations, we were well paid in financial terms.

Had it be that I was searching for a stable job, I might stick on with my job. You could very well call me immature but it quite simply was the office infighting that pressed me to my move. I made an effort but I could not be who I am not to be. I dislike it when I be expected to disagree for the sake of arguing instead of to make progress. I imagine myself 20 and 30 years down the line and imagine how measly life would be if I needed to be caught in such ‘corporate jail’. Life is brief and too priceless. After months of cunctation, I decided to cease procrastinating and never to look back ever again.

While not everybody was privileged enough to do it, I was able to build up significant financial savings from my 2 years of corporate pursuit and that granted me to realize my passion in life. Guess how my life is today? (clue: I invest most of my time in the kitchen) I may be expected to work longer hours with lesser pay but I do not need to turn to my watch everyday just to wait for the clock to strike past 6.
