Just got a full-time job offer. Nothing spectacular, but it's a six-months contract, with the possibility to get one year after that, and then to negotiate the terms (salary and bonuses) again.
Now, I feel like that guy, I can't recall his name, who betrays Neo in Matrix. I'm sitting with my own Agent Smith from the HR department. Yet, there's a huge difference. If I remember correctly, the guy in the movie had an option to forget the whole thing. I don't have such a luxury. I'm gonna get back to an office with a strong memory of my independent days. I'm talking about freedom, that's pretty much obvious.
To make the long story short. I'm very likely to say no. Yet, the very fact that I'm even considering this offer here with you is a huge disappointment for me. This is the sign that I'm not doing great. If I'm to be successful as planned, I would have said to Mr. Smith, thank you but no thank you, I'm doing just fine. I don't regret leaving the 9-to-5 Matrix in the first place. It seems that's not entirely true.
Every now and then, I think about that famous Morpheus pill scene, also from Matrix. Remember? I took the one for independence and now, now I don't know what to do.
You don't have to be a Matrix fan to comment on this thread, lol. Yet, I would really like to hear some opinions here.
