For the past few days, I've been working. For money.

This is my house's desktop computer. My job is to input all the bills and receipts of my dad's company into a database software, which many of you have heard of, which is UBS Accounting System. For Art Class students, this surely rings a bell in you. For Science students, some of you may heard of it and some may not. But it's an accounting/database management software.

Okay, so I wasn't really working with the outside world, but hey, my dad promises me to give me some 'salary' once I finished with the work. Data after data, documents after documents, day after day, I kept typing and typing, basically doing the same thing all over again.

I have to admit that over the 'working days', I've dozed off over the same old work twice already. Till today, I still cannot imagine how boring and dull and meaningless it may seem to keep repeating everyday all over again, keep doing the same thing with no slight changes in life, keep going through the daily routine every time till you retire... Sorry if this sounds sensitive and personal, but I have to tell the truth that this is how I feel about working life. Dull. Un-'lively'. Sooner or later, depressing and in the end, making an enjoyable life not enjoyable. I just couldn't stand doing the same thing for the rest of my life. Perhaps that's life. Perhaps that's reality indeed. Maybe I'm still too naive and not ready to face the facts yet, still standing tall and boastful about having the best life I can have. But, I've heard from some of my friends that they actually like this kind of lifestyle. Doing the same thing all over again till they stop working and live happy at old age. Without doing anything adventurous. Exciting. Lively. At first, I don't understand why. Then again, I felt that I'm too selfish and self-centered. I should respect others' opinions and perspectives as well.

To be honest, I still enjoyed working these few days. There are indeed many challenges (not physically) while doing my work. Wonder how much will I get? XD So, that's all for my post then. Oh, and Alison? Please take note that I'll be making a post about dear Mira. If you want to do it first, or you've done it already, or maybe you got something to say, better say it now, or I'll begin typing after a few days from now. Haha!

I guess I'm still not ready to enter the real world...
