Question

In The Girl Behind the Blog on December 13, 2012 at 12:36 pm

I feel like the idea of a profession in itself is a trap. Why would I want to spend my time working for someone else earning barely any money at all in comparison to other careers? It just doesn’t make any sense to me. That’s why I’d rather be a writer, be my own boss, write my own books, and spend my time doing what I want. That’s what makes me happy. So, applying that same idea to another era, I would want to do whatever makes me happy regardless of “profession.”

“How in the hell could a man enjoy being awakened at 8:30 a.m. by an alarm clock, leap out of bed, dress, force-feed, shit, piss, brush teeth and hair, and fight traffic to get to a place where essentially you made lots of money for somebody else and were asked to be grateful for the opportunity to do so?”

-Charles Bukowsi
