Normally I have issues with others. It isn’t that I’m anti-social, but it’s easy to know that I don’t function well in environments with human interaction. This type of anxiety has been a nightmare to deal with, primarily because it stunts my social skills. It damages my development and leaves me as an awkward weirdo who feels more comfortable with a laptop then a girlfriend. My plight has become a set standard for thousands of other humans who act just like I do. While there isn’t anything wrong with the desire to use computers, it is fairly obvious that I’ve got a few problems interacting with folks.
I suppose I should deal with that by simply working through my frustration. My issues with society are plainly apparent after a brief social moment with me. If I know you personally, you are either a college student stuck with crippling debt and no job actually using that degree yet or you didn’t finish/go to a higher education level and are stuck in a monotonous job that you hate.
This shouldn’t be my responsibility, but nobody seemed to make it clear. They didn’t teach this to you as a child. This is something that is discovered after endless hours of work that blur together into the recursive weeks that is called work. Most kids in college haven’t held jobs yet, because they didn’t need to.
These poor souls are in for a rude awakening. They are told that they can accomplish anything, but aren’t given the resources. Some are given the right instruction, but they never do anything with it. They get a comfy job. One that offers a better salary, because we choose a pay raise over more responsibility every time the offer is presented.
I worked my ass off. I’ve held a job since I was legally able to and had reliable transportation. That was the age of Fifteen. After six different jobs, I figured out something I wish I knew from the start. Every employee only works for one reason: a salary. I’m not going to become like everyone else and bust my ass for someone else and their company when I could easily just market myself.
I’ve already started doing that with this website.
Let’s see where this goes.
