Some of the best ways to quit your job

May 15, 2012 // 0 Comments

So the more and more I talk to other analysts about work, it really hits me that no one, not one single person likes being there. Its pretty amazing when you think about it. You go through 12 years of school, studying hard so that you get the marks to then do another 5 years of uni, studying hard so that you can get the job that you think you [...]

Investment banking bonuses and following that yellow brick road

April 25, 2012 // 0 Comments

Its Bonus Time and I can’t stop singing in my head “its the most wonderful time of the year” like Macaulay Culkin in Home Alone 2 when he gets to spend the day in the toy store with all the awesome Christmas toys…this feeling is despite our expectations having been sufficiently managed down to the extent that I really should be singing, [...]

That moment when you spend too much time in Excel

April 21, 2012 // 1 Comment

I’m currently modelling to distract myself from having just witnessed the grossest thing I’ve ever seen at work – I just saw one of the oldest, sleaziest, tannest, “I will hit on any female form with a heartbeat” directors, changing in the open plan kitchen at work. I never EVER want to see that much orange, saggy skin near peanut [...]

April 13, 2012 // 0 Comments

It’s almost 4pm on a Friday and miraculously I’ve managed to spend the entire day online shopping. With my smooth avoidance of work I feel like that last olive in the bowl that is next to impossible to pick with a toothpick… haha try and pick me with work if you can, but I’ll just say  that I’m busy on X and Y’s work even though I [...]

I’m eating a can of beetroot for lunch today and I’m happy to admit that I have been truly impressed by said can of beetroot. Its such an underestimated vegetable that it makes me even doubt its a vegetable because it tastes so good! It has such a nice colour too…both the beetroot and the light purple splashes on my top from spilling [...]

When your director returns from the dead…I mean returns to work

Thanks to a well devised strategy to serve corporate greed, executed through cancelling my overbooked flight, I’ve managed to find myself spending Australia Day at the airport….in the terminal for the low cost carriers. There is no better place to witness the true fabric of our glorious country. Just sitting here I’ve already seen a young [...]

How to face time at work like a boss

December 21, 2011 // 0 Comments

I could not be border today (as in bored-er). I don’t understand why we need to sit here and surf the internet until what is considered a “normal” finish time. Apparently our employment contracts says that we must work all “reasonable hours” which no doubt was intended to mean that you must work from 8am to 6am the next day every day, [...]
