Going home just to sleep
During a recent meeting with some internship friends, a common topic that we discussed was job stress and how to distress effectively. They complained about long working hour and internal politics between the co-workers.
It is not doubt that much more is now demanded of us in terms of workload. One friend mentioned that though as an intern she still need to doubles up as a assistant to her superiors, in addition to her main job as a IT systems. Another friend mentioned that she has to de-stress every day after she gets home from work. Officially she is supposed to leave at 6.pm, but usually cannot do so until 8 pm and reaches home at 9pm. When she reaches home, she just left an hour to spend with her family and time to sleep.
My cousin spends almost the whole day at works and only goes home to sleep. She and her boyfriend hardly have time left to pursue other things in life. Sometimes during hectic period, she even has to work on Sunday.
After reviewing this, I finally find myself that we are in the same predicament. Maybe I am luckier that I could leave at 6.pm.
