This is not unusual, I’m a gov’t contractor so my working life is all about working for people who don’t know what I know and can’t do what I do and still direct my work. The real deal is that I’m just a well paid temp on an endless series of gigs of varying length. Might be 6 months, might be 6 years but the one thing that’s been very consistent is that there’s no stability as a contractor.
My question is this: how many people really love what they do, feel well compensated, and valued by their employer?
I’ve got the (kind of) well compensated part, but nothing else and that’s mostly OK. But fuck if isn’t a little draining to know in your heart you’re just a big fucking ho.
