Let's just get this out of the way: corporate America is some BS. You work eight-plus hours per day for forty years (and probably even more if you're a Millennial!), and you may or may not get to retire (let's be honest, most likely not).
What is this all for? To be able to afford to exist and maybe take a vacation to see your parents once every two years! Alright, now back to work you slackers.
