There’s a Lot Going On

After a few weeks of silence – I’m BAAAAAACK. Sorry about that.
As the title says – there’s a lot going on right now, so let’s cut to the chase and talk about it.

The good.

Well, as some of you might already know from my ‘About’ page, I am (was) a finance student writing my final paper and trying to get a degree this year… Well…. I did it, got the perfect mark and will get my diploma in 3 weeks. (Special thanks to my parents, vodka and redbull…. Seriously)

So this will make me a perfect McDonald’s employee with a degree in Finance serving you ’em fries! Jk.

Β The meh.

While I was writing my final thesis (It was around January. Believe it or not, I did not start last minute, lol.), i was also an intern in one bank like financial institution. After a while, let’s say, I got promoted and was offered a full-time job there. Aaaaaaaand it went down hill from there. While I was an assistant like intern – everything was just great, after that promo – all hell broke lose. πŸ™‚ But hey, i learned something – I cant stand working with some type of people. And after 2 months of hesitations and considerations, I decided that that type of job is just not for me. So…. I left. Most of my friends think that I’m a functioning retard for doing so. I was offered a quite well paying job while not even having a god damn degree in my hands…. On the other hand, I think, sometimes, less paying jobs are a better choice if it’s not killing you inside out… πŸ™‚

So to sum up, now I’m an unemployed functioning retard, that quit his job. So this gives me plenty of time to write shitty posts here, and do something exciting.

Stay tuned.Β

    SI,

    No worries on quitting job. Although hindsight suggests that it was better to have another job before quitting the current job, you have to make the best decisions you can at the time.

    I was in a similar position a few years ago. I had a good job but it was mad stressful. I went on vacation, re-evaluated my life, and decided to quit without the benefit of having another job lined up. It turned out to be the best decision I made. I got my very next job, which was my dream job, and is the job in I’m right now. I don’t know how long this is going to last, and as much as how I prefer this current job, it’s still a J-O-B.

    I’m working to the day when I don’t ‘have’ to work anymore.

    Congrats on your degree and you have no place to go but up. Good luck!

      Without even a single doubt – you are right, but… When you’re giving yourself 3 months to get used to, then every single day start reducing that time and even starting counting days ‘until you quit”… Well.., I think it’s way wiser to just quit on the spot.. πŸ™‚
      I believe that I’ll find something closer to my heart. It might take some time, but I’ll get there.
      Cheers, mate! πŸ™‚

    You are totally right if the job kills you quit it. I had some doubts about my job, but its well paid and in general interesting. Yes there are stress, yes there are some time work overload, but just because its hard, im not quieting. Then you quit you wife, kids, family ect. But you are totally right there are some bad things in our work ethic. Im blaming our communist past, our sociability is traumatized which is even passed to other generations. Family connections, autocratic management, performance in front of the boss ect. all comes from that stupid regime that we used to live 50 years (2 generations!). Own business is also an option. There are lots of government support tools for business starters. Tried my self some, but was not good at it. Im good at financial analysis, and my present job is about that so im pretty happy with that πŸ™‚ Hope you will find you way as well. As it says in one old and smart book – seek and you will find πŸ˜‰
