Was it Worth It?

You bust your ass. Prove to your doubters that they were wrong. Rise above expectations. Take things up a notch. And what thanks do you get?

Not much.

Don't get me wrong, I'm glad to know I'm being appreciated. But I'm not stupid either. You know how you get the idea how much you're being appreciated? Well, I can sense those things.

God. Damn. It.

This sucks. You go 100% on your effort only to realize that it wasn't as worth it as you were hoping for. I feel stupid. Goddamned stupid.

I've been reading a lot of Naruto lately online. In fact I finished all available Naruto manga. So far I'm waiting for the latest to come out.

Of all the characters in that manga, I felt I could relate best with Shikamaru Nara. The guy with the shadow jutsu. Why? Just like him I find tasks a "hassle" to do, preferring not to get too many responsibilities. But just like him whenever some important task comes up he always does his best. No matter how much of a hassle it is.

In other words he usually complains what a drag an assignment is, but he will eventually do it, and most of the time he does a most excellent job at it to boot.

What's up with the Naruto post? Not much if you look at it from a very "shallow" standpoint.

As we get older in life it would not be surprising to realise that our responsibilities start piling up one after another. This is of course a normal thing, because technically as we get older it means we are more capable of handling responsibilities - either personal or work related.

Do I mind more responsibilities? I'd be lying if I said no. It's a drag, honestly. But just because I feel that way it doesn't mean that I won't accept the responsibilities and do my best in each. Besides, getting more responsibilities means more people put their trust in you.
