Working towards...

Where we end that where we intended to be? So when I see some guy working the corporate grind, bored out of his mind, 2 kids, 1 dog, white picket fence should I NOT be envious? I feel like that is what I am working towards, I want to work normal hours and have a 9-5 job(for an attorney those hours are amazing). Is that wrong? Society has told us to work towards our dreams but Hollywood has turned that dream into a joke. Maybe the "recession" is making the mediocre American life seem more appealing but I strive toward that "mediocrity". I put it in quotes because I believe that it is becoming more desirable to have constant employment at a company that allows you to start at a normal time and leave at a similarly normal time. Mediocrity. Build your dreams up and land where you always thought you would be looking down upon. Cynical you say? Probably, but can you blame me? Did we grow up thinking unemployment would reach all time highs? That the financial sector would be overrun with unethical business practices, putting greed at an all time high? Still, I am excited to start my legal career, in whatever field I end up in and with all the hope an naivety in the world. Here's to those naive, yet optimistic ideals!
