Thoughts, Quotes and Everything Beautiful #2

If you follow my blog, you'll probably know how much I loved the Blogspiration meme. It was my favourite! And then Kristin decided it would be the end of it - we all know how much life gets in the way of blogging. I understand perfectly. But I miss Blogspiration like crazy. That's why I decided to make this new kind of meme, to keep the inspiration alive :) So I will post every Sunday (hopefully - if life doesn't get in the way) a thought, a quote or just something beautiful or inspiring. Feel free to join in, if you want to :)

This quote has had a big impact on me since the first time I saw it. It described perfectly how I feel most of the time. It's written in Italian, but don't worry, I will translate it for you ;)


I want a world at the height of the dreams that I have.

I don't know about you guys, but god, the era we live in it's so freaking awful. How many times do I ask myself, if I would have lived in the 1960, things would have been easier? Too many times. 

The interpersonal relations are screwed. The capitalism made everything for so fucking fast that half of the time I don't really know how I can keep up. When I search for a job every employer is searching for an "enthusiastic, energetic, friendly, professional, great personality,  upbeat attitude, well mannered, polite, bla bla bla individual" - for a minimum wage payment of course. Jesus, sometimes when I read stuff like that I become so mad. Basically you are searching for a perfect person, which "hallo, doesn't exist" and at the same time you are willing to give nothing more than the minimal payment. Fuck that.

My degree means the world to me, and even though most of you will say I still need a Master degree to do something important, I feel like "What I've been studying psychology for freaking 4 years to work in a coffeshop?!" 2 days ago I've been doing cardboard in the basement of our coffeshop and I felt like crying. Never in my life when I was 17, have I ever thought this is what I will be doing once I got my degree. Sad, really. Then I asked myself "What on earth will happen in 5 years from now, if this is where I am now?"

All I want is do something, that I can use my brain for. I am a smart girl, I have a degree, and I've been accepted at one of the best Universities in the UK. Why this isn't enough?

Have you been struggling with same problems? What are your thoughts about this particular subject?
