Worn From The Grinding

15 September 2003 17:41

Over the past few years, I've been putting in 10-14 hour workdays almost everyday with some weekends off. I don't know what winds my clock but I do it anyways, day in and day out non-stop without question. While it hasn't given me extreme wealth that I don't have to think twice when it comes to getting stuff, it does take care of the obligatory bills with some to spare for savings and some on the occasional personal indulgences. But just like the tyres of a car, it gets worn with use. The longer the distance you cover or the faster you drive the car or both, the sooner the tyres get worn out. When it does wear out, it loses its ability to function properly or worse, shit happens. Unlike the tyres of a car though, the body isn't something that you can replace when it gets worn out. The only thing one can do is to nurse it and make it usable again. I haven't had any extended time off from the daily grind since 1999 and I think it's high time that I do just that before I crash and burn. If only other people would let me though. I know that I shouldn't let other people dictate my personal time but I doubt I'd be able to keep my mind off matters at hand when I'm taking those time offs. Having a conscience can be a curse sometimes.
