9 to 5

9 to 5
A way of of life? Or a way of living?
...Stumble out the bed and stumble in the kitchen, pour myself a cup of ambition, yawn and stretch and repeat monday to friday.
The whole idea that it should be common practice for everybody on this planet to work a 9 to 5 is deluded, I don't believe I've ever worked a 9 to 5 and I never plan to. The only reason to work like that for someone is for money and the only reason you work for money, is because someone else told you it had to be done, but thats for their reasons, you get that!?. I've been poor before and I'm pretty damn skint right now, but I'm HAPPY. All work in our lives should be about making ours or others lives HAPPIER.
My friends who work in offices are happy at one point of the day, the moment they leave the office. I'm not saying my life is a barrel of laughs, I'm making it for myself and that's the most important thing to take with you. Do 9 to 5 for yourself, if your 9 to 5 is 15 minutes in the middle of night then go do it!
9 to 5 only has and should only be that moment in your head when you know you've achieved. That voice that says' you've done good now, now do whatever the hell you want, (although they should be one in the same). The boss didn't get where he was through working a 9 to 5, he worked until he thought the job was done and then got you to come in a do the rest of the shit.
WORK FOR YOURSELF. FOR A BETTER MANKIND
