“This is not my life!”
- an expression mostly heard by my colleagues around 2.15 pm, when clock watching and Instagram no longer mask the terminal boredom that is my day job.
- a feeling of exactly the same thing.
I work in accounts: I guess you could call it my field. I began studying it in college, took it to degree level, (disliked it pretty early on), graduated and now I’m here. Why, you ask. I chose to pursue “financial security”, naively believing that education and determination would make it a pretty certain outcome, but didn’t factor in feeling unfulfilled the whole time.
Since graduating I have struggled to find the will to chase success in a field I knew I had no interest in, despite knowing that if I put my mind to it I would be successful.
Also as I have never really had a passion I have not actively pursued anything else.
Until my passion does become clear to me I will take advantage of every opportunity I have to try new things and also spend more time doing what I know I enjoy.
And I will be job hunting like crazy!
