I constantly hear my friends complain about work. They say that the workload has become heavier than before. They say that people are working longer yet earning less. They say that their life is out of their control and their dreams had died. I feel pathetic when I hear these comments. Will I have to become one of those busy bees after graduation? Living a life that centered around compromising work and gradually losing the way?
