They say that high expectations make frustrated men. And this saying makes the perfect description of life after campus for the majority of school leavers. It never hurts to dream and to dream big for that matter, but when reality strikes hard and the beautiful dreams are put into question, and one starts to doubt everything you once believed in.
That good and fulfilling job with a good salary, a good working environment where everyone at work is your friend, you have a boss who not only knows your nickname but is also is your fan on Instagram. The working hours are so flexible you can walk in and out any time because your boss believes you are capable of doing the right thing at the right time and with the good intentions, it can get any better than this.
Now forget the dreams for a moment, reality knocks on the door, and you have to open the door at zero option else you will be living in a world of your own. You may end up finding yourself in a job you never dreamt of doing. This is because you had this distant relative whom you met at you cousins wedding and they promised you a job at an international company. Once you were done with school, they went MIA on, and you did not have a backup plan because you had it all figured out or rather someone had figured it out for you.
You have to beat the traffic to get to work on time; your boss is top ten on the list the worst people you’ve encountered in your life not forgetting that distant relative whom you blame for your undoing. At work, people are taking advantage of you by loading you with any work they don’t feel like doing, and you have to stay late to get it done. The salary you are earning is unbelievably so little it cannot take care of a quarter of your expenses; thinking about it makes you sick. You have no real friends because everyone is looking out for themselves and they can sell you any time to the supervisor to get themselves off the hook. To make matters worse you never signed any papers when you got on the job, so on paper, no one recognizes you as an employee.
