Throwing off the bowlines

Sorry all for the long silence. These things happen sometimes. I’ve been very angry for a while now. And I took the past few weeks trying to get to the bottom of this anger.
Here’s a cycle.You are expected to deliver your best (always). You needn’t get paid the best. Oh now you needn’t give your best (there isn’t enough time). Just do something. Oh good you can be fast. Can you be better? You needn’t…(and no we don’t want to spend on printing.)
Here’s another. You. You are smart and fun and intelligent. Stay. You can be more smart, more fun, more intelligent. Work here. Live here. Please don’t have a life. Stay. Please don’t try and act smart and fun and intelligent. You want to be better? No please. Don’t use that brain. Just stay. Catch.
Oh the last: You are young, we won’t pay much. You getting better. Good. You want to be brilliant? Sorry. We don’t need brilliant.

Is a jobbing person’s work as soulful as a “captain of my soul”?
Can you be a part of the industry and not be a full timer?
Is money more important than work with soul?
I’m all interested in things like these all of a sudden. I guess it’s a mid- twenties thing. The gypsy comes calling. I’m taking time off thought and doing some simple studies these days.
Also in the exciting cards is the next exhibition and you will hear more about that soon.

    Hey Samia, u seem pretty angry… with your last job? or last project? Seems like the your team head or boss has really really pissed u off. But its good to introspect — sometimes you end up finding the gem you have been seeking! Cheers. SS

      Hiya no nobody in particular. It’s just the beginning of figuring out how you fit in an industry. And how you cannot. Anger makes choices sometimes. Yes agree with finding the gem. Thanks

    Flow, flow, flow with the tide. Stay with the love and the tide. And they will take you to your desired destination…
