So at the moment, I am really struggling to keep up with everything. The struggle is real and hard.
“Harder than than a rock” to quote AC/DC.
Work utterly drains me from 8:30 to 6pm Monday to Friday. In fact, when I come out of the office, I honestly feel like pasta after it has been cooked : soft, soggy and gormless. I try to be truthful to a spaghetti’s nature in the morning, and big up and motivate myself hard (no pun intended … which wouldn’t work anyway because I don’t have a stretchy appendage), but by lunch time, my shoulders are hunched and am surfing the web for “the best excuses to call in sick in the summer” [food poisoning works all.the.time] – in effect, I am al dente by then.
I have put a schedule in place for my post
slavery work activities : gym on Monday & Thursdays as well as Sat morning if I can be arsed, daily guitar practice from 9-10 pm (shower and dinner before) but then I seem to run out of time for blog photos, chores and actual sleep. And bear in mind, I need to slot in my singing practice as well … Mama wants to scream against the nasty machine.
But how, when 70% of my useful time is given to the corporate slave masters?!
I absolutely ABHOR the system we have been bred into for hundreds of years : who is the thunderfucker who decided that we had to work five days a week to LIVE? How come no-one queries these arbitrary five days?? Imagine if there was a mass revolt and we all decided to say ‘fuck this shit, I will only work 3 days a week’? The government would have no other repite but to enforce this – or face civil war and generalised anarchy.
Sadly, everybody seems to be way too indoctrinated in the consumerist matrix. So I am taking things in my own hands.
My contract has come up for renewal, and I have TOLD my employers today that if they want to keep me, it is on a 4 days a week basis. The first thing they said was ‘ what if it wasn’t possible?’ – to which I replied ‘I’d have to stick to my principles and move on’.
My future will be on my terms.
For I am In Control.
Are you in control?
