Published 1 month ago

Someone somewhere has already probably said it, but truly some days “work is a real drag”. It’s a sentiment many of us can relate to, as we navigate through jobs that might not always bring us joy.

Penguin Panda Pop: It’s absolutely infuriating that actual members of government (in the UK at least) spout this utter nonsense. Saying that some jobs shouldn’t earn a living wage is ridiculous.

Monoxide: I was ghosted by a company that was trying to headhunt me from my current role. Called, offered me a massive pay increase, I did 2 phone interviews, then… nothing. Not one single person out of 4 I was in communication with would return calls or emails. Im not mad about not getting the position (honestly, I wasnt super into it based on one of the bosses being a guy I used to work with), but you came TO ME… Then ghosted. I was annoyed and confused.

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.
