Life style shock

Last night we went out with my friends from school to celebrate a birthday.
One of them is a teacher looking for a job. The others haven’t yet finished college. They work some strange, some weirdly interesting part time jobs. 14 hours a week. Irregular schedules and income.
I forget that kind of life IS an option.
Having to fight hard for work/life balance is ALSO an option.
The teacher? We’ll call her Mary. She spent 6 months in Guatemala. At night she heard shootings, during the day she taught in the community school.
Anna, still in college, works in a shelter for the homeless.
Me? I work with people wearing suits. We make money for the people with more expensive suits.
