#22 Reflections: Workplace or School?

A step backwards?

I feel like the change from University to the workplace is almost taking a step backwards in many ways. We went from school and college into University and had our first taste of freedom and autonomy. In the first year, things were rocky as we adjusted to not being reminded about deadlines, not being given detention for missing classes, not knowing some lecturers names. Life just suddenly felt like it had loosend itself for us a bit too quickly.

The workplace

Then you enter the workplace, feeling all accomplished and set for life, ready to carry on blossoming from all you learnt in your degree only to be told to sit down and do what is told. Since people were very much getting affected by your actions, suddenly your actions weren’t yours to decide.
