Are You Living in the Corporate Jungle?

I'm not sure precisely what your way of thinking is but for me personally, full-time office endeavor is simply not my cup of tea. However that being said, I formerly dreamed that office assignment was for the really good. You could very well think it is hilarious but I really reckoned at one point in time that wearing in formal workplace attire was cool. Not surprisingly, I was really driven to shine in my corporate line of work.

It is dazzling how drastically things have evolved since then. I was quick to realise that management and business roles were unexciting and they were far from the ideal images that I dreamed them to be. Do not be wrong. I did manage to join among the many Fortune 500 firms and I'm not kidding you. However guess what, the 2 years that I wasted working there was marked with suffering and it was hard for me to make myself to cling even until six pm and that was the first time I told myself that it was most likely best to go forward.

You could perhaps call me unpremeditated, but as much as I can ascertain, I have made an effort speaking to my peers who graduate at approximately the same time as I am. Believe it or not, more than half of whom I talked to were in the identical situation or worse than myself. I can surely tell you that money is not the factor here. You bet, most of us were handsomely honored in our roles and we did believe how lucky we were when many of us in the nation are still fighting to get a hold of jobs.

If I was searching for a secure job, I probably would stick on with my job. But it is the office politics that pissed me off. I really like being just the way I am and wouldn't be able to stand it if I have to show a side that I am not. I love reasoning and arguing but only when folks disagree on the benefits of an idea rather than some hidden intention. I wouldn't be able to envision myself doing this sort of thing for the remainder of my twenty or thirty years. My life is too valuable, I imparted to myself. After months of procrastination, I decided to stop procrastinating and never to look back again.

In the 2 years that I was clung in 'corporate prison', I had accumulated decent amount of money that helped me to pursue my other passion in life and coincidentally, it is the cooking world. Nowadays, I am spending my times inside and outside of the kitchen and while fatigued I may be, I am not constantly staring at my watch and wait for the hour to touch past 6.

This weblog is written centered on my private experience and it is my way of describing my insights and beliefs. I treat it as my personal diary, albeit a digital one. If you find my content good, that is soothing. If not, thank you for dropping by.
