When I was in High School, I dreaded graduation. I thought College life would be a drag and I actually wished I’d die right after graduation day so that I wouldn’t have to go through all that misery. Morbid, huh?
Turns out I was wrong. I had even more fun in College than I did in High School (no offense to my high school pals, I do love you!). I’m glad I didn’t get my wish then, and maybe this is the reason why I became rather optimistic about life after school.
Unfortunately, I think I would have to admit that maybe I was wrong yet again and maybe Clarissa (from the TV show) was right when she said that maturity is a boring state of mind. The adult life, or more specifically, life as a working grownup, is extremely BORING.
So far I haven’t found a job that did not bore me at one point or another.
Maybe the problem is that I chose the wrong college course. Maybe I’m in the wrong country (please don’t say I’m just in the wrong place coz this is the third corner of the country I’ve tried working in).
Or maybe it’s just me.
What I wish right now, though, is that this is just a phase I’m going through (what they call the “quarter life crisis”) and that I’d eventually outgrow this and enjoy the working world.
I just hope this is a short phase, though, because (a) ennui has always been my biggest enemy and (b) patience was never my virtue.
