It was killing me and if I stayed there, I would be brain dead by Christmas.
This was actually my first office job ever, as I always was a freelancer or worked casual jobs, or worked in places, that I could decide how much I want to work, or had just some jobs that were ok to do, but did not really cared, so I could quit whenever I did not liked anything.
There is a Polish saying that I find hard to translate "miej wyj*bane a bedzie Ci dane" ~ "those who don't give a f*ck will be rewarded" so while I handed my one week's notice without actually having any plans for the future or anything secured, on my last day of work I found on Facebook that a small family haulage company I used to work for needs a driver for three days a week. I got a word with them, and there you go - today was my first day at work, tomorrow I am going to beatiful Campbelltown
I still like driving, despite doing that on and off for nearly 15 years, so I am quite happy, especially that the vehicles are maintained very well. And if someone tells you that driving is a job that does not improve you intellectually, he propably never tried to work for a big corpo. It's copying and pasting some rubbish from one excel spreedsheet to another that kills your brain. When driving, you meet people, you enjoy the views, and you can listen to audiobooks or BBC 4 while earning money
So some say that I am back to where I was 10 years ago when I freshly arrived to Britain, but you know what? I don't care. I will have almost the same money from those 3 days per week as I would have in that stupid office, I am doing the job I like with some nice people, I have time for my other projects, and since I don't have big needs moneywise, I am perfectly happy (actually in a month or two I should become completely debt-free).
So if anyone battles the thoughts "should I quit my dead-end office job" - just do it, you surely have some skills that would keep you going!
Also: it came to my though - every monday millions of people in the world goes to their dull offices to start their wait for Friday and do the job they hate - there is something wrong with this world definitely!
