Now, tell me was it any of the two? When I was doing my job and even more than what’s fucking expected of me? I don’t like cussing. Or at least I try my best not to. But I am pissed beyond belief. And apparently, contrary to popular belief, the person who’s supposed to have my back is the one pushing me even further. When will this fucking nightmare end. I am so tired of fighting the system.

    eh di, don’t fight the system. Don’t give more than what is expected of you. i know that’s very difficult to do (esp if you love what you’re doing) and one that will turn your into a ghost, but there are people who don’t deserve your care. sayang lang. give it to those who do. hooray! 😀

    thanks. if you knew what was happening, though, I’m sure you’d have a hard time, too. especially if half of you naman doesn’t mind doing extra work kasi they’re for the people who “deserve [my] care.” ang hirap ng double “body.”
