GENERAL SURGEONS WARNING
WORK MAY BE HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH
"well.. derr!" you may be thinking, but I do have a vague point here..
there seems to be 2 types of work out there..
the first - is work to compliment your lifestyle, work to fuel your being.. keeps ya flowin' in full health, stuff that's so fun.. you feel it's criminal you're being paid to do it.. (of course, very rarely do these jobs ACTUALLY PAY)
then, there's the second (and much more common) - work that takes over your lifestyle, stomps it into the ground and subjugates you for most of your waking life.. this is the sorta work that sends you to an early grave with a gold retirement watch..
and you wonder why so many people out there feel like crap.. ;)
normally.. I live my life by the former.. and everything's peachy..
and shit, during summer.. should you be doing anything else?
life is for living yo?
but since I'm currently doing the latter in effort to kill this work contract as QUICKLY (and insanely) as possible.. I've discovered it's causing a serious detriment to my health.. maybe it's coz I've been sitting chained to this desk.. barely moving / eating / blinking or breathing for 10 hour stretches processing seemingly identical pages of work.. (174 so far!), either way.. it's giving me seriously lousy winteresque health symptoms.. wheezing, coughing, feeling altogether dizzy and out've it, feeling sleepy, then gettin' no sleep, bloodshot eyes, unshaved, twitching nerves.. etc.. etc..
yup.. I actually for once know EXACTLY how the rest of you worker monkeys feel..
(but, thank gaaawd this shit is temporary.. hehehehhehehhe)
can a person live on caffeine alone?
pushing the extreme..
all in the name of work..
all in the name of killing the beast with one swift action..
but, my insanity does have a purpose..
it does in fact END..
I can return to being human..
and this is wot keeps me going..
keeps me focused..
but.. wot about the rest of ya?
is work and your life, diametrically opposed?
isn't it killing ya?
is retirement, or a few short days of holidays all you live for?
(and you wonder why stress levels in the workplace are on the steady increase)
working y'self into an early grave..
I know I don't wanna live like that.. ;)
