Brand new year, and the end of an error... er, "era".
I was thinking of something to write about that would be slightly interesting, and after some rumination, I thought of this: freedom
. The Dilbert comic from the other day sums it up quite well.
Freedom from the daily office drudgery is a topic that crosses my mind quite frequently. Like many others, I wish there could be more job satisfaction, but sadly, that takes a back-seat to the more pressing concerns of paying a mortgage and keeping the family fed. Oddly enough, I actually feel envious of Dilbert. At least he's
got a cubicle
I work in a very average and mundane systems integrator in Japan. Your average Japanese office doesn't have cubicles, and instead features desks arranged so that everyone faces each other. Not having four walls surrounding me, I suppose that would make me free-range
This post is just a start. I've been thinking of freedom quite seriously lately, but I don't quite have the time right now to wax verbose. Back again, in a while...
