    I can feel my potential being p1ssed away.

    and the soul crushing madness of taking orders from people who are also moody and nuts. AND I DONT SLEEP ENOUGH. this is exactly how the brochure said it was. I hate wearing bras so much I'm ready to start some b.s. feministic cause just so I can burn them.

    If you didn't have to work would you still work?

    Meaning you had all finances taken cared of and money wasn't an issue. I personally wouldn't continue to work, I hate working. Not even my job I just hate working. I want my time to myself.
