It’s such a quarter life’s crisis cliche to talk about money.. yet it’s still our number one concern. Money is our friend, it’s one of the most important part in our life cause it’s the thing that pay all of our bill, it provides all of our needs and all. In this age (20ish), we earn money by working our asses off, pulling off the all nighter just to have a decent lifestyle. In this age, we are encouraged to have all kind of things as a sign of prosperity ; latest gadgets, nice clothes, designers’ bags, expensive perfumes. Not to mention an urge to travel the world and join the world class gym centre.
Then we ask the question ; do we need it all?
While the society encourages us to live glamorously, we should put a lot of thought in how we should spend our money. We often feel that our salary is not enough to pay all of our needs. The fact is it depends on how we spend it. Do you have your financial goal? I’m not a financial planner but I do things that financial planner said in internet/books. And it hit me, I have a decent salary, it’s enough to pay all of my bills, except for the things that’s not exactly i need (or i should call it jajan-jajan gak penting) such as pricey coffee/bubble tea and cute luggage tags i impulsively buy somewhere. The 1/3 salary goes to the things I don’t really need, but so tempting to buy. It’s the girls problems, i think.
Well, it’s your choice, it’s your money.. I’m just blabbering 😉
It’s kinda irony to say that I hate my job, because in fact i do love my job but the thing is.. this job, that i’m currently doing, the position that i’m currently attach is something i’ve been looking for ever since 2 years ago. At that time, i thought this job would be more fun yet challenging like the ones that I’ve done. It may fun in different way, despite being trapped in a circle of serious people. So, being a HQ’s worker (my dream actually) is not as great as what i think this would. My estimations has failed me..
So, i will list things that I think should change in my working place..
1. Why so serious? Yes people of my Divison, please do not be too serious.. It’s kinda freaky to face the silentness (besides the sound of typing keyboard) every single day in our floor! A little bit laugh won’t hurt, i tell ya!
2. The gap between the boss and the staff. It’s so deep that people who jump into it will not be survive.. The feodalism that’s still be enforced.
3. Prejudice. People always talks and makes prejudice of every single thing you do and say. To make it simple, you can’t be your own self in here, you’ll be the ones your Division wants you to be and it’s not healthy.
Every job has it’s up sides and down sides, I may think my job is boring but in other hand there’s lots of people would kill for my job.
Well once again, let us be thankful for what we had 🙂
Unlike Burger King, the company i’m working for is way far from “have it your way” principle. Ketika dunia sudah berubah, pola berpikir kantor saya masih saja ketinggalan jaman. It’s a customized era for God’s sakes! Whilst the industries are trying hard to fulfill the people/customers/workers needs, my comp is still far left behind in their way of running the business.. I feel kinda hopeless though..
No, do not tell me to quit.. Because I already plan to, after my ikatan-dinas is over *wink
