Recently I’ve been caught between the two subjects, though I never thought that this would be an issue with me. Really, never.
Love. Sweet, simple, silly, suffering love, that is all that matters.
And yet, it seems as though the promise of doubled salary, full benefits, and a director’s position matters to me as well.
Let me break it down [further] for you.
We do not live to make money. However, we must make money to live.
Of course, you already know that. Have you really thought about it, though?
Think about it. Ponder it. Sip some coffee or light a cigarette.
So, now what? How do you feel? Can you answer the following question easily?
Do we dedicate our lives to living simply and full of love, yet also hardships that we may or may not overcome? Or do we work hard and get paid for it, go to college for 5 long years and then run with the money when it comes, regardless of love?
This I do not know.
I do know, however, that I love my current job, even if it isn’t paying off my student debt.
From the morning routine of content developing to the afternoon creative freedom. I work with really nice people and I do a really fun thing, something I will never get bored with.
I would want my life to have this same routine, I think, even if I didn’t have to work if our society allowed us to be free and love one another as we wish (yuck, too hippie?)
By that I mean I would still want to wake up, struggle with working out for a few hours while I down some sweet coffee elixir, read some news and write some thoughts, then spend my day chatting with my fiance, writing new stories and articles, and listening to music. This is a wonderful position, truly, and I’ve had the best year of my life here.
So does the mountain of debt truly matter? What do you think?
