Had an informal chat with one of my young colleagues yesterday about his resignation. Unlike others like him whose reasons for leaving were job offers with (much) higher pay, he said he was quitting because he felt his youth was being wasted working for someone else when he could be spending the time building his own thing with his brother (who's in the same field and also quit his job recently).

I really respect these kids with big goals and the courage to go after them. I wish I could have been the same. Do dreams have expiration dates?

Sorry, parang medyo whiny nga ang post, no? Naisip ko lang kasi, my boss, who's about the same age as me, can retire at age 40 with the company he built. Samantalang ako, all my hard work went into helping someone else's company grow, but in the end I'm still just another drone. When I leave the company, poof, wala na. :(

You dont want the headache or the wrinkles of that. It could have easily led him to bankruptcy, and sleepless nights, years even, worrying about loans. Swerte lang siya.

What's so bad about being a drone? Pag-uwi mo you can pursue your interests, no worries. Sila, ang daming iniisip.
