Wow I actually miss working my ‘brainless’ part-time job… Maybe it’s cos when I’m there, I don’t have to worry about the pragmatic real world, and the practical concerns that haunt me subconsciously every now and then, as well as the constant nagging thought that I have to be doing something productive, or I’ll be wasting my time, and the ensuing guilt and wretched feeling I get when I realise that I might have just ‘wasted’ my time.
On the other hand, when I’m working, I just focus on what I’m supposed to do (which, alas, is usually nothing nowadays), and talk to people. It’s easy and perhaps, therapeutic.
And that’s all my work is supposed to be – therapy. Given my priority as a student, I ought to be spending more time in school and focussing more on school work. I haven’t been doing my readings carefully, and it’s time to change that.
Also, it’s only week 3 and I’m already giving Starbucks a lot of money.
