What’s a student to do? Since Christmas I have been filling time with having no time at all. So many jobs to do, there’s no time for any of them. Making a start on one, you’re behind on the last… and end up with eight problems and barely a touch made on any of them. In a working environment this is pretty easy to fix by collaborating (or – conspiring) with fellow workers: we used to spike the instruction manuals we wrote for leading, here-to-be-unnamed British mobile telephone company with pictures of family members’ cats and Electric Wizard lyrics. But as a student it’s tricky. We work in little invisible boxes. And the only way to escape, sometimes, is to break out. Play darts. Get food.
I’ve made money from jobs on the side. It’s getting to the point where I want to cut everything out and focus on work. I want work to stop being work, and start being enjoyable again. There isn’t time for work.
