我的29+1

每天都在問,咁我地點。
很清楚唔想咁樣,但唔知想點,其實又可以點樣。
每個關於將來的問題,大都可以轉化為人生的意義。
每條問題都np-complete,大到我無從入手處理。

有時會想,寧願我們沒有選擇。點解你要係男人,點解?

希望一朝醒來,突然發現昨天的自己已經為明天的自己作了些決定。
可惜,每天都是今天。
今天太累,上上網,打掃一下,看一點書,賞花賞月賞秋香就好。

很好的偽裝,很像樣很靠譜的婚姻和工作。
其實願意commit,只因這兩者於我都是reversible。因為可以離婚和辭職,才願意一試。
也許這都是自欺,因為時間不能重來。試一年,就過一年。
讓我自欺一下,什麼都還未決定,什麼都有可能…

始終不願面對終期於盡。
希望現在仍是29-4,讓我再揮霍一下,再逃避一下。

Contribution

Huge swathes of people, in Europe and North America in particular, spend their entire working lives performing tasks they secretly believe do not really need to be performed.

Real, productive workers are relentlessly squeezed and exploited.

Came across a wonderful article “On the Phenomenon of Bullshit Jobs“. It blatantly points out the annoying fact of the inequality in our society. For a few days, I keep wondering why “real” jobs pay so poorly. Why can’t I get paid well by making good and contributing to those in hardship? I guess the answer is in the question; those who are in need cannot pay you handsomely.

Then I came across a cartoon tribute to Bill Watterson, the artist behind the inspiring Calvin and Hobbes. This cartoon is a beautiful reminder against job title and salary as sole success measurement. Besides title and salary, some may treasure work-life balance, job satisfaction or have preference in a particular job nature.

What about contribution? It seems off the table in the discussions about jobs. But I do care about it. I want to make good for others. I hate wasting 9 hours per day doing something useless and get decent pay check. It feels so guilty and wasteful.

I want to do something, even in working hours.

I hope to find a job that could balance contribution and pay. What should I do then?

ps. I still want to be in the IT industry. I hope to find jobs that targets public, at best the less privileged. Or, I hope to contribute to help the environment, or something related to food-supply. (I mean help relieve food crisis. Not selling food. Don’t tell me Park N Shop.)
