Have you ever woke up in the morning with a feeling of dread? Making it impossible or unthinkable to get up and face the corporate nightmare that is your job. What are you complaining about? You have benefits a 401k and an office job that society considers worthy. As time passed me by I assumed things would get better. Surely the American Dream is more than this? Each day I got up the dread never left and my vision of the American Dream became a disillusioned mess. Everyone around me looks depressed, under the florescent lights, tethered by their headsets to their computer desks. One by one I would see each of my coworkers/friends disappear each week. As I sat alone amongst the empty desks that remain. This job was my own personal prison, at 25 I prayed that one day I could start living. Instead of being another number in this corporate prison, but I was trapped. Bills continued mounting day by day how could I walk away? Should I take a leap of faith and live out my dream? Or suck it up and embrace corporate insanity? Past generations had stuck it out to give me the future that I have now. However, I knew that I needed to break this cycle. To show everyone that the American Dream involves living out your dreams, not settling for someone else’s.
