5 Lessons About Work That I’ve Learned in the Past 10 Years as a Professional

Career talk, people!

I’m in the mood to talk about work today, because finally after 10 years of working different jobs, getting frustrated because of the job or the boss, I finally got to the point where I think I’m quite content with what I do.

Yup, it took me 10 freaking years to get to this place. To the place where I’m happy with what I do. The place where I complain less. The place where I think I’ve finally found the purpose of my life. The purpose of the skills that I could confidently offer.

Yes, 10 years and 8 jobs later.

What I’ve Done to (Look Like I) Get My Shit Together

I’ve been quite hustling lately to the point that I barely have time to write these days. The good news is that at this point, I feel like I’ve finally got my shit together. Not just on the surface, but also in general.

I could pay my bills without having to hustle just so I can get some extra income to buy some other things, and even better that for the first time in my life… I could actually save some money into my account!

For those who don’t know me, that might come off as surprising since I’m always the kind of person who would seem like I get my shit together. Except for some depressing memes that I’ve shared on Facebook. LOL.

Well, I’m sure that there may be some other people who are currently struggling like I did and wonder how to get your shit together. Because apparently, life is a bitch when you’re not rich. And no, I’m not gonna glorify what’s so-called hard work which I feel I’m entitled to. It’s so much more than just working my ass off.

Instead, I’m here to tell you the honest story about how to get where I am today after a series of frustration, being broke while trying to keep it together so I don’t have to sell my own kidney or even start looking for a sugar daddy.

And nah, I’m not trying to create a motivational post. I’m trying to write something raw as a flashback to my past.

May Day: Some International Workers Sharing Their Stories on International Workers’ Day

It’s May Day, so for those of you who could actually relate… Happy International Workers’ Day on the first of May! 😀

Anyway, I know some countries celebrate Labors’ Day on some other day, but in case you don’t know… May Day is dedicated to all workers. And it’s there to celebrate laborers and working class in general.

That’s why I initiated a collaboration with some fellow bloggers who are also workers with various backgrounds. With the world that is claimed as almost ‘borderless’ nowadays, so many workers have different stories about their job.

Some have to relocate and deal with culture shock for a bit. Some have to struggle with the art of commuting. Some probably have the luxury of working remotely with some different difficulties along the way too.

So, here I present you the stories of international workers on this very International Workers’ Day!

5 Passengers That I Would Never Forget From The Time When I Worked In The Airline Industry

If you’re a frequent visitor of my blog, I think most of you know that I used to work in the airline industry for quite some time before I decided to come back home.

In total, I worked in the airline industry for around 2.5 years. One year as a ground staff, with 1.5 years as a flight attendant.

During my time working in the airline industry, I have encountered so many types of people to the point that I hate most people. But then among them, there are at least 5 passengers that I would probably never forget.

So, who are they and why are they so memorable?
