The Inside Life Of Every Career Person In Nigeria

May 25, 2020

Loving your job or career comes with a lot of benefits, like an account balance that loves you too. And your face splashed across different seminars and conferences with titles about success. But like most things in life there is still a downside to it. Without further ado, behold the inside Life of every career person.

How did we know this? Excuse you, are we not career people?

1. Zero social life.

Your life is a straight line between your home and your office. And maybe church every weekend. TGIF is mostly you, your couch, and your TV or you and your Social media feed. All the fun you have is virtual. The only actual thing in your inbox is work mails and zoom meeting invitations.

2. Back pain from all the hours spent hurdled over your laptop.

And to make the situation even sadder, there is no boo or bae to give you daily back rubs. Just you and your highly productive self.

3. Strain on relationships.

Because you are always too busy and you don’t pick your calls. And on top of that, you always forget to call back. But what you lack in personal relationships, you gain in work relationships so it’s a 50:50 thing.

4. You are always cancelling plans.

Because there is always a deadline to meet. And you can’t be the life of the party and employee of the month.

5. The house party app is the closest you have been to a house party.

We be knowing.

6. Your parents constantly on your neck for grandchildren.

This is a huge problem because there is no boo with which to produce these children. Because there has been no time with which to procure the boo either.

7. Linkedin over Twitter.

Your twitter account looks like a BOT account but your LinkedIn account is fire.
