Overworked and underpaid

Monday, 10 November 2008 @ 11.15pm

I'm an AE for Mega Advertising. I'm the Events Manager and Board of Director for Koperasi Sinar Bestari (Kostari). And I'm a teacher at Get Crafty. I'm practically working ALL the time. I don't get enough sleep. I don't have enough time to socialise. And I never have enough money. But I'm loving EVERY minute of it. I feel like I'm living my life to the fullest and doing all that I can at this young age.

I don't regret spending more than I make and I don't regret being overworked and underpaid. I'm doing this for the experience. I'm doing this so I can do all that I can in this very short life that we have.

I may only be 24 but that went by in a flash. In ten years time, if I hadn't done all that I could now, would I regret it? I think so. Some time down the road I'm going to wonder how I managed to work all day, go out at night, barely sleep at night before starting it all again the next day. I haven't had an off day since...hmm...what does an off day feel like? The last I remembered even feeling relaxed was a year ago when I spent at least once a week at Alexis by myself for hours.

But I'm not complaining. I'm just wondering when things will fall into place. I'm ready for that next level. I'm just not sure whether it's ready for me ;)
