TGIF: Rate Race Holiday...



TGIF: Rat Race Holiday…

Notice how most people rejoice and be glad it’s Friday? Even on hump day (Wednesday) people eagerly anticipate FRIDAY. Is it because we have 48 hours to ourselves or at least the joy of sleeping in instead of clocking in?

I am tired of looking forward to the one day that gives the illusion of freedom. We come to work on Monday anxiously waiting for Friday. So we can continue the same redundant working pattern for the next 20 plus years. When did this become the way of life?

I have my own hustle now...has advantages and disadvatages. Biggest plus is not being tethered and on lockdown with idiots for 8 hours a day. I still deal with them, but I can make faces on conference calls that they will never ever see. The best part is grabbing the macbook, sitting outside on the patio to work on a project on a nice day, instead of breathing recycled air...

any day of the week to not be at work is good for me. i'm working on being independently able so i can work for myself.

Nic- I dont wanna grow up! LOL

T.C.- There has to be more to life than being a slave for ten plus years.

Anonymous- It's all about the side hustle. You gotta do whatever it takes to give you the big break. I am not mad at you. Keep doing you!

Tanyetta- I dont know your lifestyle from experience. But I am sure you're busy :)

Blu- For some reason Jaddakiss' song We Gon Make It came to mind. (smile)
