• Sarah commented on the post, reminded 5 years, 6 months ago

    Whenever I go past one particular office building in Edinburgh I am filled with dread and reminded of the worst two months of my life – working a job where I was a nervous wreck, hated those around me and hated the nature of the role. I wish I could tear that building down…

    You won’t amount to anything. You’ll just be an average, ordinary woman who does an average ordinary job.

    Can we talk about ‘Banksy’? I’m not sure I want to discuss banks. I work for one. In a call centre. There is a job to drain your soul. Money is a dirty business. Talking about it is filthy. I dream of a day […]
