The world is not against you

You may think the world is against you, but it really isn’t. There is a me-against-the-world heroic ideal that is understandable, but why romanticize so unwaiveringly about something as mundane as a day-job? Why not focus your energy on something you find worthwhile? And if the world is still against you, at least you know you are fighting for something you love and not an emotional slave to drugery.

    Easier said than done, when the majority of one’s life is spent fighting against the idiocy of one’s day job.

    I am working on it, though. I really am.

    Unfortunately, anything that affects one’s ability to eat is not mundane.

    I further hold that while THE world is not against anyone, the world surrounding a particular individual can be another story.

  3. SB, I see that you have fought the good fight and won! Congratulations on your new job. Now stopping bitching! (I love you.)
